The color consistency of a brick building or wall is sometimes achieved by masonry staining.

Stain Gang performs staining of brick, mortar joints, precast concrete repair and restoration, and pressure washing. This small company out of Ararat, N.C., uses a water-based stain and often matches the color right on the job.

Dark mortar joints can make a wall look solid. Stain Gang matched the mortar below and stained the dark joints, then stained a few block to break up some of the darker block that was grouped together.

“We stand behind our work for no less than 20 years,” says Debbie Hoover, owner of Stain Gang. “I started Stain Gang because I truly enjoy seeing the outcome of every project.”

Whether the job is large or small, Stain Gang is dedicated to getting the job done right. “Dealing with brick, block, cast stone or precast, these materials are all different,” says Hoover. “There are times when one doesn’t go just right. But there’s that feeling you get when you have completed it and it turns out beautiful.”

Gray mortar around an electrical unit was stained for a more polished look.

Hoover says she has several people to thank, including Gates Construction Co. Inc. (particularly Brandon Hartsell) and Huntley Brothers Co. Inc., for the opportunity to work for them and for her success so far. “I think the best part of working is the people you meet. I’ve met some wonderful people,” says Hoover.
