Concrete Stain - Applying Second Coat (different color)

I had my concrete porch stained with a water-based concrete stain last week at the same time my house was painted and the color didn't turn out like I expected. It is more of a blue than a gray. Only one coat was applied to a previously bare concrete surface. Do I need to do anything to prepare the surface for another coat (this time more of a gray color), or can I simply roll on the new color?

You've got the can, what do the instructions say?

The label should tell you want you need to know. The odds are since it was a water based stain should be able to change colors ..... assuming it's a solid color stain.

Okay. I'll ask Sherwin Williams as well when I go in there later this week. Hopefully it's just a matter of applying a second coat. Thanks.
