Custom Colors for Your Home.

Transform your home with climate-friendly stains that never chip, peel or fade.

Isn't It Time For Your Total Home Makeover?

Your home is built to last – but that doesn’t mean your paint job is.
Brick and concrete surfaces aren’t like drywall – latex paint will peel, chip, and fade starting just a few years after application. You need a solution that can stand the test of time.
Nawkaw has been making and applying stains for masonry and concrete for over 35 years using sustainable mineral & acrylic systems.
We hand-apply our own products developed by our in-house scientists and consult with you to create the color of your dreams.

Staining Color Technology

What we apply to your home doesn’t come out of a paint can. In fact, we custom-make new stain for every project we work on.

Our products are our own – created by our in-house Research & Development team and heavily tested long before we ever hand-apply them to your walls.

An average substrate inspection prior to application includes a water absorption test, moisture content test, and pH measurement. If necessary, our experts will also perform laboratory analyses and design the best solution for your building’s needs free of charge.

Color & Finish Consultation

As Color Specialists, Nawkaw is dedicated to helping you make the right choice when it comes down to color. Nawkaw offers a variety of standard colors – but truly, there are no limitations with our shade and opacity selection! With our color-matching services, any shade can be produced to create something new or match to an existing color or texture. Do you want to know what your building would look like in a different color? No problem! Our Color Specialists offer color samples, applied to your building. They also have the capability to mix colors on-site until you’re happy with the outcome!

Surface Preparation

Surface preparation is just as important as the application of our stain products, because any residual materials, or even dirt, can create barriers between the stain and the substrate to be treated. At Nawkaw, we use only the highest quality products. From site preparation, necessary equipment rentals, hot and cold concrete or masonry cleaning, on-site training, and safety, to cleanup and material disposal, we take care of it all.
