SunStone is the latest advancement in concrete coatings, creating beautiful limestone finishes on concrete and a wide variety of other substrates. SunStone is the perfect choice for those discerning customers looking to compliment the natural quarried stone and finishes of their home and outdoor spaces.
SunStone is an architectural limestone coating that both resurfaces and refinishes concrete, masonry, brick, styrofoam, sheet rock, cinder block, hardibacker, stucco, and more. This unique product can also be used across a wide variety of applications, including driveways, pool decks, walkways, entry ways, patios, or interior concrete surfaces. The experts at Sundek of Austin can help you decide which application is right for your needs.
The first step in creating this dramatic, limestone coated surface is to properly prepare the existing concrete surface for the SunStone application. The SunStone product is then applied via a squeegee or hand trowel over the bare concrete surface. Next, a texture component is added to the smooth SunStone, bringing out its natural variations and enhancing its limestone aesthetic. Excess texture is sponged off, and patterns are created using a carving tool. These patterns can be as intricate or simple as you like. Common patterns include flagstone, tile, slate or other custom stone carvings.
The dried SunStone is then stained with the color and tones of your choosing. Special techniques are utilized here to create dramatic or subtle highlighting effects. Color options are virtually endless, allowing you to customize your SunStone surface to complement existing architectural elements in your home or outdoor space. The pattern lines created with the carving tools can also be filled in with grout, or left bare, depending on your preferences.
The final step in creating this beautiful, limestone coated surface is to protect it with a clear coating, ensuring you'll be able to enjoy it for years to come. Sundek of Austin
