Outdoor concrete is subject to many harsh weather patterns and other environmental issues. Decorative concrete coatings need to last and make it through the seasons, from cold deep winter freezes to hot and damaging sun and heat during the summer, and everything in between.
Sundek has more than 40 years of experience in the concrete industry, so we know what it takes to make top quality concrete coatings. We use only proven and time tested materials for residential and commercial outdoor decorative concrete.
There are many choices when looking at an exterior concrete coating for your property. These include stamped concrete, acrylic splatter knock down to hand troweled Tuscan texture. Take a look at some of the popular places to use outdoor concrete coatings and decor, and some of the products and systems you can use around your property.
Sundek originally developed the Classic Texture knockdown overlay that continues to dominate the swimming pool deck industry to this day. The Classic Texture acrylic finish is so successful because it features everything you would expect out of a pool deck coating: it is slip resistant; it is easy to clean and maintain; it is cooler than many other surfaces; it comes in a range of custom colors, but it doesn’t break the bank. Sundek knows that one size doesn’t fit all, so the Classic Texture Finish isn’t for everyone. That’s why Sundek has come up with a full range of concrete finishes to meet almost any style, decor and budget. When the time comes to choose your ideal outdoor concrete finish, contact Sundek as one of its over 50 dealers across the nation will have a multitude of ideas and custom options for you.
One of the most popular and enjoyable areas in any home can be the concrete patios and outdoor living areas. As well, patio areas are also very popular at restaurants and bars, to serve as outdoor entertaining and dining areas. A functional patio surface must be easy to clean and maintain, it should be stay stain resistant, and it must provide a slip resistant surface even when wet, all the while blending in seamlessly to the surrounding design and theme. Concrete patios can take on almost any look and design once coated with one of the many Sundek systems. Options include a hand crafted custom overlay like a Tuscan Finish, or an earthy, natural looking SunStone finish. SunStone is a limestone coating that looks and feels like real stone. One of the most unique and complex, yet high-end finishes, is a stamped concrete finish with patterns. This allows a realistic stone or brick look to be achieved. If the desire is to mimic a real stone surface, consider a concrete stone finish. Any desired look for any patio can be achieved with Sundek products, including brick, tile, flagstone, Italian slate, travertine and pavers.
Whether it’s at a home or a business, a driveway is designed to take a beating. Sundek coating systems are prepared for heavy traffic and vehicles, and ready for abuse and use from kids’ toys, skateboards and games. Many think a concrete driveway must be simply functional and grey, but it is amazing how a property can be improved with a decorative textured and colored finish on the drive.
There are a multitude of choices for driveways done with Sundek products. These include a Stamped Concrete finish, or the latest in Limestone Coatings for a more unique and European touch. A stained concrete finish is a simple way to add color to a concrete driveway that is newly done or in great condition, and it provides a rustic mottled color and look. Whichever choice is made, a concrete driveway that is decorative and beautiful is a wonderful first impression for either a residential or commercial property.
The personal welcome mat to a property is when guests walk into a home or building along a pathway or entryway. Walks and entries are essentially the red carpet for any property. SUNDEK’s decorative concrete coatings are the ideal way to enhance the curb appeal of any property at an affordable cost for the owner. Sundek coatings will also save time and money instead of having to tear out and re-pour concrete.
SUNDEK’s decorative concrete artisans have been beautifying horizontal surfaces – the concrete the world stands on – since 1970. Now with advanced technology, we are transforming vertical surfaces as well. Look around at vertical surfaces when looking at improvements, as they can become your personal work of art. When you contact your local SUNDEK dealer to revitalize a pool deck, driveway, patio, living room, lobby or garage floor, look around at interior and exterior vertical surfaces as well, and soon your walls could be doing the talking.
SUNDEK concrete coatings are ideal for:
- Retaining Walls
- Residential and Commercial Buildings
- Utility Protection
SUNDEK’s vertical applications can transform existing concrete, brick, stucco, drywall, and painted surfaces into works of art. Whether you want the look of hand-carved stone, Chicago-style brick, or Picasso-like murals, your imagination is the only limit, as all SUNDEK systems will go vertical.
