    Sundek Products for Concrete Patios

    The benefit of using decorative concrete products to build outdoor patios is that these products are highly versatile and incredibly durable. You can pick and choose the ideal combination of products to create the customized look you want. We can even mimic the look of premium materials, like flagstone or brick, simply by stamping and staining the concrete! One of the most popular options for concrete patios is SunStone. This architectural limestone coating is applied through a combination of stamping and hand-carving methods to create a concrete overlay that looks and feels like natural stone.

    Another popular option for concrete patios is the Tuscan hand-crafted overlay. This decorative concrete coating creates an old world European effect through a combination of hand-troweling and stamping methods. If you have a more classical aesthetic, the Classic Texture overlay might be more your speed – it is easy to customize and quick to apply. Any of these options can be combined with Sundek’s SunSplash decorative spray textured coating to ensure that your concrete patio is safe, durable, and easy to maintain. It can be combined with colors or aggregates, as well, if you choose.

    No matter which product you choose for your concrete patio, be sure to protect the surface with a clear sealer to ensure maximum durability. The SunClear EcoProtect system is ideal for outdoor surfaces, like concrete patios, and we can add textured aggregates to ensure slip resistance. The SunClear UltraProtect system takes things one step further, creating a hard yet flexible surface that is resistant to chemicals, stains, and abrasions. You can also go with something simple, like the SunColor acrylic water-based finish coat, which can be customized with aggregates or various masonry effects for a unique look.

  • Tips for Coordinating Outdoor Concrete Colors with Poolside Landscaping

    When having a new decorative floor, countertop, or wall installed inside the home, you would consider the interior style and color scheme. However, for outdoor applications, the focus shifts to the home’s architectural features, color, and even the poolside landscaping. To enhance your backyard space, it is important to consider appropriate outdoor concrete colors.

    Especially if you spend a great deal of time outside, having family gatherings, entertaining friends, or hosting special events for important clients, choosing the right color or color combination that complements the poolside landscaping will set the stage for success.

    For a cohesive look that is more visually pleasing, while adding value to the home, certain outdoor concrete colors work best.

    Consider the type of plants, flowers, trees, and shrubs around your pool. Although you want to think about the colors they produce year-round, focus more on summertime colors since this is the season when you will likely use your backyard most often. Therefore, look at blues, greens, and even certain hues of red and orange. If you have landscaping that blooms multiple colors, this opens up more options.

    Something else to consider is the way your landscaping is maintained. For example, if everything is pristine, then you might want to stick to outdoor concrete colors that are considered refined and sophisticated. However, if your landscaping has a more natural and countryside aesthetic, then either bolder or more subdued colors would be stunning.

    Although you might already have some ideas regarding specific outdoor concrete colors that you like, spend time conducting research online or going through magazines. Using the information that you find, you may be happy with your initial choice. However, you might also find colors to add to your preferred design aesthetic or choose something completely different.

    Having unlimited possibilities is what makes choosing outdoor concrete colors that coordinate with poolside landscaping exciting and fun. As an example, SunAcid is a muriatic-based acid coloring solution that produces a translucent mottled aesthetic by penetrating the concrete where it reacts to salts and minerals. As for colors, this particular product is available in earth tones, vibrant green and teal, as well as rich buckskin and cola, among others.

    SunH20 is another exceptional choice. As a blend of liquid pigments and soluble polymers, not only are the outdoor concrete colors gorgeous, the application creates one-of-a-kind masterpieces. Available in more than 20 beautiful vibrant colors, you will have no problem finding the perfect solution to enhance the home, pool, and landscaping.

     

  • Vertical Concrete

    When you think of decorative concrete, you probably picture standard applications, like flooring, outdoor patios, and pool decks. The beauty of concrete, however, is that it is so versatile – it can even be installed vertically to create three-dimensional concrete surfaces. If you are thinking about using vertical concrete, take a moment to learn a little bit more about the application and about the potential for customization options reviewed below.

    You are probably familiar with the more traditional uses of decorative, but did you know that decorative concrete can also be used to create things like interior walls, fireplaces, and more? Just as you can create a custom look for flooring using decorative concrete, so can you use it to create a custom look for interior or exterior walls – it all depends on the products you choose.

    The concrete used for vertical applications is a little different from that used for horizontal applications. For one thing, it is very lightweight and designed not to sag or drip. This material can generally be spread directly on top of any existing surface, such as plaster, drywall, wood, cement board, and even insulating concrete forms. Vertical concrete is designed to be applied in either a thick or thin layer without sagging, giving you the ability to shape it and texture it as you please. You can use vertical concrete to mimic the appearance of premium materials, like stone, wood, brick, and rock. 

    One of the latest trends is hand-carved vertical overlays. Similar to hand-troweled horizontal decorative concrete applications, hand-carved vertical concrete overlays can be used to create a custom, one-of-a-kind appearance. This kind of application is much more customizable than things like stick-on rock, brick, or real stone. Vertical concrete can also be customized using stamps and texturing skins, just like horizontal concrete. Just keep in mind that applying concrete on walls correctly requires a certain depth of experience – it is something best left to the experts.
