Can Exterior Stone be Painted and How?


Hey Guys,

My builder completely messed up our stone trim on our one car garage and Im trying to determine our options now to fix it. Long story short, I picked out ivory stone from one vendor he sent me to and once I picked it out he came back and said he could get it from another vendor. When he showed me the sample it had a very light orange hue to it but I didn't think it was going to be an issue however, once I saw it on the garage it was completely orange. They have tried to acid/pressure wash it to lighten it but it's still orange and ugly!!!!

Can this stone be painted ivory?? It's Tennessee Ledge if you know what that is so I am looking to see what we can do, thanks!

H&C. Solid concrete stain, can be used on interior-exterior masonry-asphalt-brick surfaces, should work well on your stone, thenm apply a top coat of sealer, they have about 80 colors, you can find it at Sherwin Williams

I don't seem much stone trim out here, but I can't see why a Solid Concrete Stain wouldn't work
