Q: Can I apply CreteStain myself? A: Cemcrete products are not DIY, however, CreteStain is an easier application and you can attempt to apply it yourself. Try a sample area first, before attempting larger areas. We always recommend using a trained contractor to do the application, but if you need more information regarding the application of a Cemcrete product, please download the product datasheets from the products page on our website. Q: Do you have to seal a CreteStain floor? A: Yes. Cement by nature is porous and applying a sealer ensures that your cement floor is protected from any spills or normal wear and tear.  Q: Can I stain my existing paving? A: If the main ingredient of your paving bricks is cement/concrete as CreteStain must be in contact with cement or concrete to be effective. CreteStain does not react with clay bricks unless over-coated with a cement plaster. Q: How many layers of CreteStain can I apply? A: You can apply as many coats of CreteStain as you want until the desired colour is achieved, remembering to remove the residue in between coats.  Q: Does CreteStain change the texture of the surface applied to? A: No, CreteStain only colours the surface. However, the sealer applied after you apply CreteStain could affect the sheen of your surface. Q: Can I apply CreteStain onto wood or rhinolite?  A: No, CreteStain can only stain any OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement) based surface permanently. Q: Can I use CreteStain on my Colour Hardener floor?  A: Yes, before sealing you can apply CreteStain over your fully cured Colour Hardener floor.
