What is Felxstone?

Flexstone is a flexible, durable, and attractive surface coating perfect for any outdoor surface. It is water catalyzed urethane coating that provides a strong, long-lasting finish that can withstand even the harshest Saskatchewan weather conditions. Flexstone is seamless, waterproof, UV resistant, impact resistant, and can withstand extreme temperatures down to -40°C. It is also eco-friendly, making it an excellent choice for environmentally conscious people. Flexstone can last up to 30 years with proper care, which is significantly longer than many other surface coatings. With all these benefits, it's no wonder that Flexstone is a top choice for homeowners and property owners in Saskatchewan looking to transform their outdoor spaces.

How is Flexstone Applied? 

One of the best things about Flexstone is its easy application process. We don't recommend applying Flexstone as a DIY project, but the experts at PRO Surfaces can have your outdoor surfaces coated in no time! Our application process is as follows: 

  • The first step is to prepare the surface to be coated. This includes cleaning away any debris and repairing any cracks or damage that may be present. The surface must also be swept or power washed before the Flexstone application.
  • Once the surface is clean and dry, a basecoat is applied to ensure that the Flexstone adheres properly. We apply this thick with a trowel, and it cures to a firm but flexible finish that helps Flexstone stand up to even the toughest conditions. The basecoat is self-levelling, so it will create a smooth and even surface without any bumps or ridges. 
  • Next, we apply blended acrylic flakes to create the textured stone aggregate finish. These are spread by hand onto the still-sticky base coat. Once everything is fully dry, the excess flakes are collected.
  • Finally, we apply the top coat. We roll on a one-part UV stable aliphatic urethane clear coat to provide the durability, flexibility, and extreme wear resistance Flexstone is known for. We can also add sand or an aggregate to provide a grippy, slip-resistant surface texture.
  • Once the final coat has been applied, it must cure for 24-48 hours before it can be used. After everything is cured, you can enjoy your new Flexstone surface!

What are the Benefits of Flexstone?

Flexstone offers many benefits over other outdoor surface coatings. One of the best benefits of using Flexstone is how quickly it can be applied. Unlike other surface coatings that can take days or weeks to dry, Flexstone dries quickly, allowing you to enjoy your newly coated surface in no time. Flexstone is also incredibly durable, making it perfect for high-traffic areas or surfaces exposed to harsh weather conditions. Another great benefit of using Flexstone is its versatility. It can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including concrete, wood, and even metal. This means that you can use it to transform almost any outdoor surface into a beautiful and durable space. Flexstone also comes in a variety of colours and finishes, allowing you to choose the perfect look for your space. Whether you're looking for a sleek and modern finish or something more rustic and natural, there is a Flexstone option that will fit your style. Flexstone
