Frequently Asked Questions

We are a proud installer of “the world’s best waterproof sundeck coating”, supplied by www.flex-stone.ca.

How much does the Flexstone system cost?

The standard colour coat system costs about the same as heavy duty vinyl. The Flexstone system costs a couple dollars more, but is about half the price of comparable exposed aggregate finishes. After taking the lifespan of the product (20-30 years) into account, Flexstone is the most reasonably priced product on the market.

What is the lifespan of a Flexstone sundeck?

For residential applications with low to moderate traffic, the coating will last for decades. The base coat is not likely to ever wear out and it can be re-coated anytime.

How does Flexstone differ from other urethanes?

Other urethanes contain nasty solvents that don’t allow the product to achieve a thick coat of protection. Flexstone contains no solvents and goes on thick.

How much traction does a Flexstone deck have?

The Flexstone system is slip resistant and this can be controlled as needed for additional traction in safety sensitive situations.

How does Flexstone stand up to mud, oil spills, and other tough stains?

The Flexstone system is stain resistant. Non-corrosive liquids will not penetrate the material to cause lingering marks. Even the most stubborn stains, such as burn marks, can be easily repaired by homeowners with some sanding and a minimal amount of finish coat over the troubled area.
