INTRODUCTION

 

Pebble stone decks need recoating every 2 - 5 years (sooner if you hired a contractor to do it and they 'cut all sorts of corners' to maximize their profits - the reason why a majority of people reseal their stone decks themselves).  If you see loose pebbles and stones you are past the time you should have resealed the deck with new epoxy. You can still repair a few loose stones and reseal everything, but do not delay much longer.


You reseal your pebble decks using a medium viscosity, solvent free marine type epoxy rolled over the stones with optional special split roller. A 1.5 gal kit of the Basic No Blush (tm) epoxy will cover about 200 sf. All epoxies yellow in sunlight and you must work in small batches as the epoxy will begin to harden 8-20 minutes or so after mixing.


You must first re-glue back down any loose stones before you can reseal the entire stone surface. Use the same Basic No Blush Epoxy. You can do this in hot weather and wait for cooler weather to reseal the entire surface. This way you will have some experience with the product and know what to expect when you purchase larger amounts for the complete resealing.


Rain, condensation, water of any kind on the curing epoxy will turn it white and there isn't much you can do. Make sure the stones are completely dry and no rain or heavy dew is expected for 3 or 4 day.


The epoxy will set up too quickly if temperatures are in the 80's or 90's. You can do your stone repair, but postpone resealing until temperatures are cooler (SPECIAL HOT WEATHER AND COLD WEATHER VERSIONS OF THE EPOXY ARE AVAILABLE IN RESEALING WITH THE REGULAR VERSION IN 60-75 DEGREE WEATHER IS NOT AN OPTION). Contractors in the warmer states cannot 'not reseal' in the busy summer season, so they cut all the corners using massive amounts of solvents (a real no-no) and use low end products to stay competitive in a really crowded marketplace. The result is a very short life for the resealing project and unhappy customers. Most folks switch over to calling us and doing the reseal themselves so that it is done right and will last for 2 - 5 years.


Note that most of the YouTube videos on pebble stone decks are wrong, especially when it comes to creating them from scratch (covered in section 8 below). It is a 3 layer system - not just stones mixed with the epoxy.


EMAIL / ph 603.435.7199 --- orders, help, questions - GETTING THE BALL ROLLING ASAP


Section 1 - Epoxy pebble deck basics



Packaged under a lot of different names (Riverstone (tm), Chattahoochee Stone (tm), etc.) , there are many flavors of epoxy and stone slurries that are applied over concrete surfaces to form an attractive and uniform new surface. These systems are generally used on patios, porches, around swimming pools (visit our swimming pool repair page for products/notes in and around pools), and along walkways. After a period of time (a few years) the epoxy ‘glue' begins to breakdown, primarily due to sun (UV) exposure and the stones break loose. The standard fix is a new coating of epoxy over the surface every few years (usually every 3 - 5 years applied in cooler  60 - 80 degree temps).
 


The problem will always exist because of UV damage to any/all epoxies, however it is probably made worse by the methods and products used by the original installer/applicator. The ideal application would consist of a high quality epoxy (with little or no solvents), and smallish stones (more surface contact/glue points). After the slurry is applied (over a layer of wet epoxy on a cement slab that is in good condition) and allowed to cure (harden) - an additional top coating of epoxy should be applied because much of the epoxy in the original slurry would have flowed away from the surface grains and pooled uselessly along the bottom of the slurry mixture.

 

--- So --- resealing (a single coat of epoxy on the top of the existing pebble/epoxy surface) is usually required every few years using our Basic No Blush epoxy (and special optional roller).


Section 2 - Epoxies yellow

 

EPOXY YELLOWING (ALL EPOXIES WILL TURN YELLOW IN SUNLIGHT OVER TIME)

 

Note: most pebble decks are a soft golden color - which is the color of UV yellowed epoxy (which you cannot remove). Reseal with

our Basic No Blush which will start off very clear and slowly yellow toward the existing yellow gold color already in place.

special two part polys can be applied over the epoxy to slow or stop the yellowing (rarely done).


A  UV resistant coating can be applied on top of everything to help protect the epoxy from UV sun damage.  (our 2 part acrylic poly UV plus is sometimes put over the epoxy coatings to keep them from yellowing).


Our Best UV blocker is a clear 2 part polyurethane with max UV protection (Acrylic Poly UV plus  - not for sale in Calif.). It is rolled on  in 1 or 2 thin coats over the epoxy to keep it from yellow or to greatly reduce yellowing. UV blockers cannot go into thermoset resin systems like epoxies but they can go into 2 part polys. More on 2 part polys - see in catalog Note that very few people top coat with a UV blocking 2 part poly - the UV yellow look is the most common finish.


Top coating with the Acrylic Poly UV plus is not usually done (especially over already yellowed epoxy).


Section 3 - Which epoxy to use


If the repair has become your job:

 

Use our Basic No Blush and our special slit-foam roller  to apply a new topcoat of epoxy to the stones. Find it in our catalog - click here (special summer, regular or cold weather curing agents available for this product).

11) We are a member of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) so you can buy with confidence and know that we are a well established, honest business. See logo at top of page.

12) Unlike our competitors, we have our epoxies manufactured to our specs. for max outdoor use. Raw resins and curing agents are FORMULATED by our toll manufacturing facility for performance and properties. Our competitors just REPACKAGE the raw resins and curing agents. The are simple resellers and not formulators of epoxy products. They cannot modify the raw chemicals, they can only pour them out into smaller containers for resale. - "Jack Daniels vs. Moonshine"

13) Our products all show date of manufacture or batch number. You will not find that with repackager competitors that use drums of raw resins/curing agents that could be years old bought as cheaply as possible from the big chemical companies.

14) Basic No Blush epoxy as been formulated to be less brittle than other cheaper epoxies. (See box below). You don't want your epoxy reseal to fail because of expansion and contraction with changing weather or if something is dropped upon your pebble deck.

Section 4 - Application notes

 

COVERAGE

 

Coverage rates will very greatly depending upon stone size, condition of the surface and personal technique, never-the-less we estimate 200 square feet of recoat coverage per 1.5 gallon kit of epoxy based upon user feedback. Note that this is a very common number but we also get folks saying they only got 150 sf per kit, and others insisting they got over 300 sf. Still, 80% of people seem to like the 200 sf figure.


WARNINGS

 

Best to coat before the hottest part of summer. Epoxies have very short working times when temperatures are elevated. - see HOT WEATHER below.

 

The epoxy will yellow in sunlight (starts out clear). Your stones are probably golden in color - this is most likely actually white stones covered with sun yellowed epoxy.


Pool chemical contamination on your stones can sometimes turn the epoxy a bright yellow or white. Even hosing/washing etc. of the stones always seems to miss places, so yellow chemical stains can become an issue.


Also and more commonly, rain, water splashes, bird pee, or dew on still liquid or tacky epoxy (ay 0-18 hours after application) can result in a white 'stain' that will not go away. It is either a waxy white film that forms on the surface (blush - but being a no blush epoxy this is rare) or more commonly little water caused indents on the smooth epoxy surface that now reflects the light making it appear white. Try a bit of clear nail polish over these white spots. Very likely it will fill in the 'dents' and the surface will (maybe) return to clear. (I have no way to test this). If so, the fix is a bit more epoxy over those spots.


While this spotting is often not an issue (only comes up once or twice a year), we did have a customer that had this problem again and again. He contacted other 'experts' and reported back to us: "One stone manufacturer that I did speak with felt that there may be water coming up from underneath the pebble stone and this was causing the white spots to develop but didn't know of any remedy for it." This would explain a lot. Picture a plastic sheet (the epoxy) over humid ground as the sun warms the air. Water will form (condense) on the bottom of the plastic. This would cause the spots on the new epoxy. It is obviously best to have plastic under the stones and/or have it ground REALLY dry before epoxy coating. In other words, a few dry days are needed after it rains (wetting the ground under the stones) to get the ground under the stones completely dry.


Note that we are not responsible and have no control over this sometimes white spotting


Section 5 - Temperature issues


HOT SUMMER WEATHER OR COLD WINTER WEATHER RESEALING

 

The epoxy will set up too quickly if temperatures are in the 80's or 90's. You can do your stone repair, but postpone resealing until temperatures are cooler. Best time to reseal is when temps are in the 60s and 70s - spring and fall for most of the country.


SPECIAL HOT WEATHER AND COLD WEATHER VERSIONS OF THE EPOXY ARE AVAILABLE IN RESEALING WITH THE REGULAR VERSION IN 60-75 DEGREE WEATHER IS NOT AN OPTION.  Call - 603 435 -7199


To extend pot life for the epoxy keep in cool (in the shade) and even consider placing the mixed epoxy into an ice bath so that the mixed epoxy temperature is at about 50 - 70 degrees. This alone could double your working time which would be very short (maybe just a few minutes) in warm weather. Adding a bit of solvent (say 10 - 15%% by volume to the mixed epoxy) will also extend pot life. Also work in small batch sizes, mix no more epoxy than what you can apply in 10 - 20 minutes.


Summary:

 

temps in the 60s and mid 70s - regular curing agent (all epoxies, ours and competitors)

temps in the 80s - consider using our special Basic No Blush with slow summer cure

temps in the 90s - wait for cooler weather

temps in the mid to low 40s - consider using our special Basic No Blush with the fast winter cure


Section 6 - Customer feedback


(
7/31/02) "Job went well for a do-it-yourselfer. Coverage was much higher than directions - covered 600 square feet with a little less than 3 gallons. Mixed 1.5 gallons per batch. First batch exothermed and cured in the paint pan in about 30 minutes. Air temperature was 74 degrees F and in the shade." - John K.



(6/2006) "Just finished using your No Blush Epoxy on our stone/pebble pool deck. Used four 1.5 gallon kits for about 800 sq. feet. The rollers you sell for this are the way to go. I used 3 for this job and should have ordered a 4th to be safe. Power mixed 1.5 gallons at a time and used an oversized paint roller an(1 gallon) and a standard size one. With 2 people we were done in 11/2 hours. The weather was overcast and 62 degrees and had not trouble at all. Looks great and hope to get 3 or 4 years out of it here in Ohio. The stone was laid 3 years ago and am interested to see the comparison. Great product."
Kevin D


FOUR YEARS LATER KEVIN DID ANOTHER DIY RECOAT - HERE ARE HIS MOST RECENT COMMENTS

(5/2010) "Wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the No Blush (summer version). Just finished doing our pebble pool deck and it came out great. The summer version gave us more time to roll on the product and not feel rushed. I highly recommend the split rollers. Our deck is around 850 sq. ft. ; we used 4 of the 1.5 gallon kits and 3 of the split rollers The split rollers worked great, just make sure that you keep them wet and don't over roll the stone so that the roller has little to no epoxy on it. It took us around 2 hours including power blowing the deck surface. The temperature was around 75.

Really a simple project if you plan ahead. Used a 3 gallon plastic bucket to mix the batch using a battery powered drill and mixing device attached. Clean-up was easy. We used old plastic bags to take the roller off and dispose of them.


By the way, the quotes to do our deck (825 sq. ft) ranged between $850 to $1200. Also they all were using standard rollers for epoxy and not the foam split rollers you sell. The amount of epoxy used by the contractors to recoat was only 2 to 3 gallons versus the four of the 1.5 gallon kits you sell. People need to be sure if they have it done there is enough epoxy being used by the contractors to settle into the gaps with the stone to get a good sealing.

Great product and will continue to make use of your products in the future."  Kevin D .


(5/20012) Paul,

A few years ago I used you Basic No-Blush 2 epoxy on my DIY epoxy pebble stone pool deck. However, when I look at your web site now I only find Basic No-Blush (without the 2 on the end). Has the product changed? Should I now use the Basic No-Blush? Do you have another product that is even better for recoating epoxy stone decks/patios? I need to recoat now so I will be needing to place an order pretty soon. (SAME PRODUCT - WE JUST DROPPED THE 2 - the 2 was in improved - reformulated version of the original product).

As best as I can recall, one coat was all that is needed for recoating. Is this correct? (YES)

I doubt that you will remember this far back, but in 2005 you and I have several email exchanges about white areas showing up after proper application and drying of your product. There was absolutely no problem with your product as the problem seemed to derive from the moisture coming up under the epoxy from what must be the lack of satisfactory vapor barrier under the slab. Even though that happened and will probably happen again I found your product to be the best thing that I can use.

Thanks.


 

"A few years ago we had a contractor install 450 sq. ft. of pebble stone and after a couple years it needed re-coating in the areas affected by the Sun. I researched different products and picked one that I thought sounded good and ordered it.

Well that product didn't last very long so I continued researching online and found Paul's website. After reading all the great information I ordered the No Blush product and some of the recommended split rollers. We waited for a 3-day no rain forecast and even though it was a warm 72-degree morning I had my wife mix small batches while I applied the No Blush without any hardening problems and we finished the job in a couple of hours. The key thing was the split rollers. They hold and apply the epoxy much better than any standard roller. I ordered (4) rollers...

The finished job looks better than when first installed by the contractor.

Many thanks to Paul."

"Hi there! This e-mail has no question but I was just looking through your site and I wanted to say that it's great! I was just looking around the internet to read about the subject of epoxy and no other site I visited was as helpful as yours. You are very knowledgeable in that subject and I admire that. Great work and I wish you the best! "  - Gabriella  10/15

Section 7 - Why buy Basic No Blush  (tm) epoxy for your deck

 

We are a coatings /  epoxy company, not an epoxy repackager. Repackagers simply buy barrels of the raw resins and repackage it for all sorts of uses. They do not 'formulate' the epoxies, just repackage the basic chemicals and charge 'super good prices' - say $80 - $100 per 1.5 gal units (it is the difference between alcohol and Jack Daniels). These sites don't have user notes, instructions, help pages, etc. They just want to sell you their 'crude' resin systems - counting on you to buy cheap instead of buying performance and a track record. And you wouldn't expect them to offer more than one type of curing agent (i.e. slow summer curing agent, fast winter curing agent and regular) curing agent). But different cures makes lots of sense. Formulated boat building epoxies (from various vendors) come with different curing agents to match the weather and climate. It only makes sense that those that can offer different curing agents  (the part B) for outdoor decks would too. You will also note there are batch numbers on our epoxy containers. Epoxies are chemicals and should be carefully tracked from manufacture to your front door. You probably will not see batch numbers on the products sold by other vendors.


We hope the information provided by these pages will convince you to go for Quality over low end, cheap, generic epoxy. We are a professional  epoxy  company that wants informed customers and cares about those customer's projects. We have this entire web page telling you all about the ins and outs of re-sealing (or creating) your pebble deck.


Most of our competitors just list the product with a paragraph or two description and hope to win you over with a low generic price. They cannot give you more info (or ask you to email or call them) because they don't know much about pebble deck recoating - not enough to fill an entire web page or answer your questions. We cannot match their prices, but they cannot match our product quality and product knowledge.


Section 8 - Creating a pebble epoxy deck from scratch

 

It's not that difficult to make your own epoxy - stone surface. The most difficult part is finding the small pebble stone. Having to purchase 3 tons of stone and shipping it across the country will probably nix the entire project. If you can get around 'stone availability' issue, you're home free.

 


Usually the epoxy-stone surface is applied as a thin topcoat over a poured concrete surface. It is generally applied as thin as possible. You want to cover the surface with a uniform layer of pebble stone, but not much thicker. The smaller the stones the, easier and more attractive the end result will be. WE SUGGEST YOU DO A 'LEARNING CURVE' TEST ON PLYWOOD ETC. SEE HOW MUCH EPOXY YOU ARE USING, SEE IF YOUR KNEES AND SHOULDERS CAN TAKE IT. SEE IF YOU HAVE FIGURED OUT HOW TO MIX THE EPOXY AND STONES (LIKE EPOXY "RICE KRISPY TREATS")  (APPROX 15 - 20 SF OF NEW SURFACE PER GALLON OF EPOXY).


OK - here's how to do it:

(this is the method used by the best PROs - not the quick and dirty method seen on some YouTube Sites):

 


Mix up epoxy and have the stone ready. Working time will be about 30 minutes per batch of epoxy (in hot summer weather could be more like 10 - 12 minutes). Use our Basic No Blush epoxy. Roll on a coat of epoxy on the concrete (1.5 oz of epoxy per square foot).


Immediately begin applying the stone - epoxy slurry over the epoxy primer coat. The slurry will consist of 2.5 oz of epoxy and approx. 1.85 pounds of pebbles per square foot.


Evenly spread the epoxy - smooth using a trowel. Wiping down the trowel with our Trowel Aid cleaner will keep the epoxy-stone slurry from sticking to the trowel (the Trowel Aid product is a helpful, but not necessary, product).


Let the epoxy-stone surface harden overnight or longer.


It is strongly suggested you apply a topcoat of more epoxy to prolong the life of the surface. Follow the directions above for 'repair'. You will use approx. 1.5 oz of epoxy per square foot and we suggest you use our extra thick, slotted foam roller.


Only a few people put a UV blocker over the epoxy to keep it from UV yellowing, but if you wanted to we do have a 2 part clear polyurethane with lots of UV blockers in it (very hard to find clear coats with UV blockers) called Acrylic Poly UV Plus. This will keep the surface shiny much longer and will, to a small degree, protect the epoxy and provide additional 'gluing' between the pebbles. Figure on about 2.5 oz of clear acrylic per square foot, applied with an ordinary paint roller (this is an approx. figure, not based on user feedback).

Special Epoxy Application Roller (optional)

These thick foam rollers are used to apply epoxy to pebble stone deck surfaces. The vert. splits (looks like someone sliced the rollers with a knife) help to keep the epoxy evenly loaded as it is rolled over rough surfaces (such as a layer of pebbles). Nine inches long - standard roller size!  No required, but very popular! (under "misc or accessories" in our 2 online stores) - Order Rollers and Basic No Blush epoxy from our Simple Online Store.

USER ROLLER COMMENTS:

"I ordered the No Blush product and some of the recommended split rollers. We waited for a 3-day no rain forecast and even though it was a warm 72-degree morning I had my wife mix small batches while I applied the No Blush without any hardening problems and we finished the job in a couple of hours. The key thing was the split rollers. They hold and apply the epoxy much better than any standard roller. I ordered (4) rollers... "

(5/2010) "Wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the No Blush... I highly recommend the split rollers. Our deck is around 850 sq. ft. ; we used 4 of the 1.5 gallon kits and 3 of the split rollers The split rollers worked great, just make sure that you keep them wet..." (note the 2010 date - we have been doing this for a long time!)

"I am very happy with my recent purchase of the No-Blush Pebble Re-coat product. The split rollers were exceptional." Jack 7/18

Note: as long as you keep fresh epoxy on the roller it will last and not 'harden up" - If you stop or keep too much epoxy for too long on the roller it will harden up very quickly.  --- be sure NOT to order the "short nap epoxy rollers" --- order 1.5 gal kit of Basic No Blush per 200 sf of resealing. Must glue down any loose stones first with same product before resealing. Apply in 'perfect weather" - mornings in the 70s - no rain in sight for several days.

 

CLEAR EPOXIES AND UV PROTECTION

UV blockers/absorbers CANNOT be added to cross-linking thermo-set resin systems like epoxies (they can be added to 2 part polyurethanes). Anyone that tells you they have a UV resistant epoxy or a non yellowing epoxy is either ignorant or lying to you. You decide if you want to do business with dishonest companies/individuals.

Your existing epoxy pebble deck as already experienced UV yellowing so you will not notice much of a change
