I am pleased to say that a decorative faux finished flagstone deck project we recently completed has been selected as October’s Project of the Month by Concrete Construction! See it featured here at this link http://www.concreteconstruction.net/decorative-concrete/stamped-stained–sealed.aspx.
Our latest project began as repairs to one deck that had cracks in it. It expanded to include 3 other decks when the owners decided they wanted faux decorative surfaces that had faded updated as well.
To begin the project we opened cracks and repaired them. Using a Blastrac portable 110v DE-Z8 shotblaster we removed the old finish. After weighing the dustless vac, we found that almost 125 pounds of concrete was in our bin!
With the decks prepped for new coating, we applied Hill Brothers Desert Flex fiberglass reinforced deck waterproofing system. Waterproofing taken care of, we turned next to the decorative finish.
The Concrete Floor Store, our decorative flooring showroom had Universal Templates, Inc samples of various stone finishes. The clients selected flagstone for the shape. Several different stain colors from different companies stain color palettes were reviewed, and Life Deck stains from Life Paint were selected.
Using stamps supplied by Pro-Line, we stamped the deck over the templates with a Roman Slate stone pattern.
The decks were stained 2x and then we removed the templates and stained the whole deck again, bringing a deep rich color out.
Protecting the finish is Hill Brothers Desert Brand clear water based sealer.
The decks look great and compliment the homes exterior.
