SunStone by Sundek is a unique architectural limestone coating that both resurfaces and refinishes a variety of surfaces including concrete, masonry, brick, styrofoam, sheet rock, cinder block, hardibacker, stucco, and more. This innovative product can also be used across several applications, like driveways, pool decks, walkways, entry ways, patios, or interior concrete surfaces. The experts at Sundek can help you decide which application is right for your needs.
The first step in the installation process is to properly prepare the surface for the SunStone application. The SunStone product is then applied via a squeegee or hand trowel over the bare 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 colors 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. The finished product resembles an expensive, luxurious limestone structure, made possible with SunStone at a fraction of the cost.
