Masonry Stain

Nawkaw’s experienced technicians use proprietary masonry stain technology, specifically engineered to enhance the value and appearance of brick, block, stone or other masonry on your building. Whether you are blending additions, remodels or repairs, or even making a complete color change to an existing structure, choose Nawkaw for beautiful color that won’t chip, peel, or fade.

Increase property value, add decorative accents, remedy blemishes, or blend in renovations, additions or repairs with the help of masonry stain.

With more than 30 year’s experience, Nawkaw has stained virtually every type of brick, block, stone, stucco, and concrete imaginable. We are able to provide our staining services in a wide range of temperatures and climates. Nawkaw can even treat areas affected by alkali or efflorescence to remedy those unsightly blemishes.

No more “Paintenance”

Paint is a surface coating that will eventually come off – sometimes in as little as three years. At Nawkaw, we call that “paintenance” because you have to touch-up and repaint frequently. In comparison, masonry stain infuses substrates with color, for long-lasting, maintenance-free beauty.

Interior applications

Does that old fireplace need a facelift? Nawkaw masonry stains aren’t limited to outdoor applications. Since our stains contain low to no VOC’s, are non-toxic and non-flammable, they can be used indoors without concern. Nawkaw’s Color Technicians can transform anything from an entire house to an accent wall, or even a fireplace.

Main Street restoration projects

Nawkaw specializes in masonry restoration and corrective coloring. All Nawkaw products are laboratory-tested and verified on actual decades-old projects. Color matching is Nawkaw’s specialty and all of the main street restoration projects we have completed have been recognized through Main Street Restoration Award Programs.


Did we mention that our masonry stain products and services are backed by a 25-year warranty? Your home or building is a major investment that deserves the highest quality materials and services available. At Nawkaw we understand this, that’s why we are willing to stand behind our work and offer such long-lasting guarantee.

Decide with confidence

In addition to an industry-leading warranty, you can be assured that your project will have the outcome you expect. Nawkaw Color Technicians will apply a sample “proof” of the recommended treatment directly on your existing structure, so you can be confident that the finished product will be exactly right for your building

  • Mario from Nawkaw finished the staining of our stone late yesterday and we could not be more pleased with the results. I’ve attached a before and after picture of the area above our garage. It made a HUGE difference to the look of our home. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical of how this would turn out but Mario did a great job and was easy to work with. We were so impressed by his work that we would like to provide some feedback to Nawkaw. [...]

  • Steve, I’m not sure if anyone has reached out to you from the owner group, so, I thought I would let you know that the building looks fantastic. The owner rep, general contractor, architect and ourselves are very happy with the final result, waiting on formal approval. Mitch and Laud were very professional and took care to please the owner rep with small imperfections and educate them on the process. Job well done.

  • Hi, After seeing what you have been able to do with our exterior, my mom is very interested in having her fireplace redone. [...] It made a huge difference! We are really happy with the results. Also want to tell you that Jeremy, Scott and the other guys are awesome. They were so kind, polite hardworking and accommodating. It was clear that it was very important to them that we were happy with the results. I would highly recommend your company. Thanks so much.

  • Hi Emmett, We are so happy with the work! Had to share the before (listing photos) & after we got the shutters back on and landscaping cleaned up. Love the difference! Thanks for all your help, the crew was excellent and went above and beyond. Very much appreciated! Thank You!

  • The results exceeded our expectations and we are extremely pleased with how close everything looks . You can't tell where the process starts or ends unless you knew where to look. This saved the natural bricks when our only other alternative would have been to paint all the bricks. Your team did a great job! It is perfect and better than we expected.

  • I just wanted to take a moment and thank Nawkaw Mideast and their amazing crew for the exceptional job that was performed at the Detroit Savings Bank in Detroit, Michigan. We had attempted every cleaning method known to mankind to remove the carbon staining from the brick facade, but to no avail. Two weeks working with Nawkaw turned the Detroit Savings Bank into a whole new building! Thank you again!
