Concrete stain offers affordable protection

Sherwin-Williams Vertical Concrete Stain is an ideal, cost-effective way to add distinctive color and improved appearance to large concrete structures such as parking garages, stadium supports and tilt-up, block and stucco walls. The penetrating coating adds extra protection from water and weather damage.

Vertical Concrete Stain can be applied to new or aged concrete. It offers excellent adhesion and resists color fading, blistering and efflorescence. Contractors can also count on a fast turnaround since the stain dries quickly and is ready for a second coat in as little as 15 minutes. It goes on easily with conventional spray equipment and offers superior sag resistance and less overspray than similar products.

While some applications require the heavy-duty properties of elastomeric or high-build textured coatings to protect against harsh weather conditions and wind-driven rain, many jobs simply don’t warrant such a high level of protection. This stain offers better weather protection than conventional acrylic coatings without adding excessive costs to the project. It is available in a wide range of colors. For more information, visit
