Step-by-step instructions for applying to concrete

Follow these step-by-step instructions for applying stain to concrete surfaces.

  1. Prepare the surface.
     
  2. Apply two coats of Sher-Crete Flexible Waterproofer, H&C Concrete Sealer Solid Color or H&C Concrete Stain Solid Color according to label directions.
     
  3. For slip resistance, add H&C® SharkGrip® Slip Resistant Additive to the stain prior to application of the second coat. SharkGrip will not change the color of the stain. (This product should not be used in place of a non-skid finish.

And remember, if you ever have questions about an exterior stain project, the experts at your neighborhood Sherwin-Williams store will be glad to help.
