Architectural Finishes Inspired by Art & Science.

Concrete Stain

Concrete is a building material known for its quality, durability and sustainability but not necessarily for its beauty. Nawkaw’s innovations in concrete stain technologies and finishing techniques have turned the page on the aesthetics of concrete. Your concrete building can boast authentic finishes regardless of the form pattern used in construction. At Nawkaw, we have pioneered concrete stain techniques that allow us to achieve natural wood or stone tones, the cool sheen of metal, or more innovative finishes from the existing spectrum of vivid colors.

Nawkaw’s innovations have turned the page on the aesthetics of concrete through concrete stain.

New Construction

Whether precast, tilt-up, or cast-in-place concrete Nawkaw’s color treatments breathe life into new construction projects. Public spaces, downtown high-rise buildings, museums, government buildings, parking decks, and highway sound barriers are just a few examples of concrete structures transformed by Nawkaw’s concrete stain.

Concrete stain that’ll correct integrally colored concrete

Consistency is key for producing high-quality integrally colored concrete. But sometimes mistakes happen or blemishes occur due to damage during shipment, installation, or by mistakes from other trades. Matching colors for patching or other necessary repairs can be a difficult endeavour and if not done properly, can leave buildings with eye-catching imperfections. Corrective concrete stain beautifies the finished product, saves replacement costs and has even eliminated pending arbitration between contractors, suppliers, building owners and architects on major new commercial concrete construction projects in the UK, Dubai, Canada and the US.

Color Equalization services

Sometimes our services are only needed for a portion of a building or on individual panels. Nawkaw has the expertise to focus on a specific problem areas and to blend out the variance where necessary. By harmonizing the color of a building, Nawkaw’s concrete stain can help mitigate your potential losses due to rejected panels.

Graffiti removal

Did your building get tagged? Oftentimes graffiti leaves behind shadow or residue after its removal. Nawkaw offers graffiti removal services that ensure you will forget the vandalism ever took place. Our list of satisfied clients for this service includes public schools, universities, and city government.

Cleaning and surface preparation

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

  • 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!
