How to fix stained or blotchy colored concrete.
No!, It's not Apocalyptic Zombie Concrete!
This is what moisture problems in concrete looks like.

The moisture problems in this San Diego beach home's exterior concrete surfaces were pretty obvious.
This home was going on the market soon and the cost to tear out and replace was too expensive, but the owner did not want to leave the new owners with an eye sore.

You can't succesfully lighten colored concrete. Blothyness will not even out.
Moisture Problems In Concrete

Exterior concrete is always exposed to the elements of nature as well as landscaping environments and features, like ponds and fountains, etc.

High humidity and hot weather also contribute to the absorbion of moisture in concrete.

During hot weather, the concrete acts as a heat sink, drawing moisture at a fast rate from the moisture traveling through the soil.

Cold weather assists by causing expansion and contraction of the concrete matrix. The preassure forces moisture to the surface, as well as integral color oxides to the surface, where the ultra violate burns it off, causing these cloudy patterns where color no longer exists.

The other effect is the reinforcement in the concrete rusts, the oxygen, iron, and various chemicals react and can add to the unwanted color paletes.

And of course, with the constant dynamics, cracks and divots and frying begin to occur.

Problems with colored concrete and integral color.
Mismatched Integral Concrete Pours

It is quite common for concrete to be mismatched especially when there are many batches involved. Unfortunately the problem is usually discovered after the concrete is placed and beginning to dry. Concrete Remodelers is often brought in to remedy the problem.

Evening out integral colored concrete
5 Different integral colors in a small area!

Pouring concrete is a challenging task, especially if the engineering is worked into the aesthetics of even the most minimalistic of concrete designs. It would appear to be an easy project making all the concrete come out the same color. However, if you focus on the joint pattern, you will begin to appreciate that they were engineered to reduce cracking in the long term. These patterns require multiple concrete pours and seperate forms to pour them by.
With each new concrete batch originating at the batch plant, the risks are pretty high that colors will not be an exact match. Even though the mix design order is the same, the variables back at the batch plant, the climate, and distance delivered all effect the end result.

We fix concrete color that does not match.
