Have a big job to do?

Try our new Gauge rakes (14" or 24" size available). Troweling material out on a large surface is back-breaking work. Using a gauge rake allows the applicator to adjust the thickness and apply the membrane from a standing position.

This tool also greatly increases the speed of application, you can mix bigger batches of base coat and cover huge areas in a hurry.

Before committing to applying Flexstone, ask one of our qualified representatives about our tried and tested gauge rakes.

Flat Roofing / Roof-Deck Conversions

Flat roofing is an industry that suffers a great deal of pitfalls in damp or cold climates. Torch on roofing has exposed seams that are prone to opening and tar & gravel will eventually dry and crack (in a hurry if there's a lot of freezing and thawing).

Finally, we have an exceptional alternative in Flexstone. With the new CCMC approvals, Flexstone is now on a very limited list of membranes permitted on flat roofs and decks. The seamless coating provides a thick, flexible, and uniform bond that is 100% waterproof, resistant to below-freezing temperatures, and UV stable (fade resistant).

What this means for the roofing industry is that building and homeowners are able to convert their existing (or new) flat roofs into fully functional and approved roof-decks. With costs below that of torch-on, flame-free application, and attractive finish options, Flexstone is an ideal solution to your flat-roofing problems.

Flexstone is also able to be applied directly on top of existing torch-on, which helps keep roofing debris out of landfills and effectively converts the unattractive asphalt membrane into a stunning roof deck at a fraction of the cost of removing and re-applying torch-on.

No longer are building owners limited to roof-deck conversions that require heavy and expensive concrete pavers to be installed. Save your roof the anguish of weighted additions, go with the simple and rational option... Flexstone.

Vehicular Surfacing

Vehicular re-surfacing and general concrete waterproofing is made easy with Flexstone. Our solvent free base-coat is odorless and can be applied without the use of gas-masks. Additionally, the durability of Flexstone withstands vehicular traffic for decades.

The waterproofing capabilities and inherent flexibility of Flexstone allow the membrane to move with the shifting of the building's foundation, ensuring that water will not be able to penetrate the surface and cause damage / rust the supporting re-bar.

When it comes to waterproofing below-ground parking lots, suspended slabs, and concrete foundations, it's never worth rolling the dice on an unproven product.

Flexstone is not limited to parking lots, it also works great on driveways, residential garage floors, show-rooms, industrial floors and more.

Competitively priced, the toughest membrane on today's market is the best choice for your parkade and flooring needs.

Traditionally Flexstone has been most heavily relied upon for restoration work on single family homes. We built our business around our product's strengths; being it's durability, excellent adhesive properties, and great looking seamless appearance. Today, with full CCMC approvals, exciting new markets are opening up for Flexstone.

The new construction market is the most significant of these, as most construction products have a multitude of decks. Our CCMC approvals have the capacity to override the judgments of building inspectors and engineers because it passed the rigorous testing required of a flat-roofing membrane which is the part of your home or building that takes the brunt of our weather conditions.

Flexstone is now able to compete with the traditional (and inferior) waterproofing methods that involve a glued down rolled-out product (vinyl decking) or torched-down membrane (torch-on sbs). Both these methods have some significant disadvantages to Flexstone, primarily, the existence of seams which are prone to leakage as time goes on.

Flexstone's simple application process, superior appearance, seamless finish, and unrivaled durability make it an obvious choice for most developers' sundecks and flat-roof decks (many of which have already made the transition).
