I have been doing some research on this and seems to be a pretty nice accent to existing concrete. Anybody do it and where do you find your materials?

your local concrete supply house should be able to get you materials.

Acid stain is tricky... Color wash system from renewcrete is the way to go

Why? Color wash doesnt sound permanent.

I've done alot of it over the last 7-8 years or so. I find that it's far cheaper to buy from two local concrete suppliers, as shipping small quanities (a few gallons) can be cost prohibitive due to the caustic nature of the acid. I have found "Butterfield Sierra Stain" to be the overall favorite for me, especially considering you can cut it 50% with water.

As for staining existing concrete as a contractor, I can only give you one piece of advice: Make absolutely ZERO promises on the outcome, as it's extremely tricky.......

There is no way Increte is less expensive than Brickform. I get Brickform products through HD Supply and my Increte rep can't touch it.
