Eco-Tuff Clear Coat and Soy Stain

Posted

Pros: True sustainable building materials. Ease of use.

Cons: Need to determine surface prep that all penetrating stains need

Great product must know the basics of using penetrating stains ie. must absorb into the concrete or wood not "paint it".  Non toxic, eco friendly and made from reclaimed materials.  Everything available in 2oz samples for testing out.

Pros: None!

Cons: Too many- read my review

My husband and I just got done building our house. We wanted stained concrete floors, and to be environmentally responsible. In April, we spent a total of $966 on SoyCrete samples, stains, sealer, and EcoEtch. And we spent six weeks total prepping the floors, staining, taking the stain off, and trying over and over to get the stain to penetrate into the concrete. It just wouldn't work. The sealer didn't seal our concrete countertops either. The company won't allow me to return the faulty product for a refund either. When finally gave up and used an acid stain, we had wonderful results. Too bad we had to go through such a nightmare, but I can fully appreciate the acid stain now.

Must Be A Great Product - But ... Consumer Access to Site For Help Non-existant

Posted

Pros: Appears to look good as we apply it

Cons: Manufacturer and Seller don't know how to advise homeowner DIYer

I say it MUST be a good product, but we are in the middle of a 30 Sq. Ft. countertop application - without the stain, and so far it is a baptism by fire - with no advising water from the Manufacturer or the Seller. Manufacturer and Seller assume that the user knows all about this product and how to apply it. Foolish assumption! "Mix to consistency desired" is of NO HELP. No pot-life is given. Concrete particles are so coarse that settlement occurs - with no caveat to mix during the application. This is NOT Thin-Set consistency. Access to the Manufacturer's Site is a pain on the weekends because it is intended ONLY for the Seller and is password protected. And it doesn't...

Pros: none

Cons: Too many to list

Last year we purchase 6 gallons of stain and 2 gallons of sealer. The first try the whole walkway peeled up after 24 hours. We called the company and they said we applied it to thick. So we had to pressure wash the whole thing, WHAT A MESS!! We tried again is seemed to take but after 1 year the stain had worn away in several areas and is very spotted. It didn't hold up in weather at all. I feel terrible because I had convinced some friends to use this product and their entrance looks the same, spotty and worn away. We're extremely disappointed and would no longer recommend this product to anyone.
