Sierra Stone is a resurfacing material made up of small stones mixed with two parts epoxy. By combining natural stone (one of the most durable products known today) with epoxy, we are able to offer our commercial and residential clients an alternative solution to a decorative concrete overlay. Not only that the natural stone blends well with most surroundings to make it very versatile, it is very easy to clean and maintain, and it’s very economical when compared to the options of a installing a new deck, tile, brick pavers, etc.
Sierra Stone is very durable and versatile. It is ideal for repairing old concrete or simply improving the appearance of the existing cement for a beautiful and functional surface. While it is most commonly used as a concrete overlay, it can also be used over tile, wood, asphalt or even fiberglass.
With Sierra Stone, you can create unique and aesthetically appealing surfaces suitable for porches, patios, walkways, pool decks, basements, driveways, and much more!
Our commercial clients can also enjoy an ideal floor finish and its many uses. Sierra Stone is great for retail, institutional and healthcare facilities, as well as restaurants, show room flooring, garages, carports and residential applications. The result is an attractive floor finish that is permanent and durable, improving traction and resisting marks. It is also very cost effective, easy to maintain, consumer friendly, comfortable, creative and customizable, classic and continual, making your floor a very unique and inviting space for all.
Sierra Stone Features
EASY CLEANING: An occasional washing with a hose for exterior surfaces, and vacuuming or damp mop for interior surfaces keeps the Sierra Stone beautiful.
STAIN RESISTANT: Can withstand most salt, oil, grease, dirt and gasoline contaminations. Very easy to clean, making it especially advantageous for driveways.
POROSITY: Water runs right through the Sierra Stone eliminating standing water on walkways, pool decks, driveways and patios.
ELASTICITY: Sierra Stone expands and contract up to 20% with the subsurface, reducing nearly all cracking and repairs.
DURABILITY: Sierra Stone is manufactured to withstand the automobile and pedestrian traffic, as well as icy snow and freeze thaw cycles.
REPAIR: Sierra Stone can be repaired with aesthetically similar materials should a ground movement crack occur over time – one of Sierra Stone’s distinct advantages over concrete.
QUICK CURE TIME: Sierra Stone cures quickly, with actual cure time dependent on the installation day temperature. It can be walked on as quickly as the day after installation and driven on four days after installation.
LOW INSTALLATION COST: Sierra Stone costs less than tile, brick, slate, terrazzo, or flagstone, and it is much easier to maintain.
NO MOLD OR MILDEW: The structural design of Sierra Stone prevents the formation of mold and mildew.
Durable and Visually Appealing
Epoxy is a very strong bonding agent created by modern scientific technology, and it is used in combination with natural stone to create the decorative concrete overlay system that is both durable and visually appealing. This type of surface resists most salt, oil, and gasoline contaminations. Most importantly, it is not affected by the icy snow and freeze thaw cycles.
Sierra Stone is very easy to maintain. Epoxy is affected by the ultra-violet rays from the sun and the life of the stone may be determined by the amount of traffic. However, the extra bond and shine to the stone can be quickly restored with a new roll coat of epoxy to protect the surface. Your decorative stone overlay will look like brand new again.
Interior and Exterior Application
Sierra Stone is one of the most durable indoor flooring alternatives available today. It can be left as porous floor, in which water will disappear and will drain the way it did before the stone was applied, or it can be sealed, and the floor becomes waterproof and has a textured appearance. The floor can be easily maintained and cleaned as any other surface with warm water and damp mop.
