Tuscan Overview

TUSCAN is a cost-effective, hand-applied, slate-looking finish that gives an elegant European look to old or existing concrete surfaces.

Every Tuscan application is custom applied by the artisan applicator, which guarantees you get  a unique, one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

The Sundek Tuscan texture is applied very thin – in fact, it is less than 1/8th of an inch. But it looks like a natural slate, stone or lightly textured surface.

Your installer can also achieve specialized designs and effects by cutting custom grout lines, random flagstone patterns or other masonry effects.  As well, Tuscan’s surface can be colored with SunColor, SunGlaze or SunStain, which are applied to the surface to bring your project to life.

Features and benefits:  Due to TUSCAN’s custom hand-applied/troweled texture effect, it can provide a similar look and surface as that of a stamped concrete overlay like SunStamp.  As well, the TUSCAN texture can give you the similar look of a thicker stamped overlay but save you money in product costs and complexity.  The TUSCAN solution is perfect for entryways, walks, and even interior concrete and patios. It can be readily installed over a variety of existing material and will give them a new look and design.  TUSCAN can go over concrete, tile, pavers, walls, styrofoam, concrete blocks, primed drywall, hardibacker, stucco, moldings, and more. Surfaces can be transformed with a new and updated look and decorative finish.  Whenever you want the looked of stamped overlay, use the TUSCAN solution.

Where to use it:  There are many options for SUNDEK customers to use TUSCAN:

  • Pool Decks and Surrounding Spaces
  • Backyard and Restaurant Patios
  • Driveways
  • Walkways
  • Vertical Surfaces and Walls
  • Interior Floors and Exterior Concrete
  • Commercial and Residential Spaces

How it’s done:  The TUSCAN texture is achieved by hand-troweling the concrete overlay in a random, artistic fashion.  This hand-applied texture looks like a custom texture of swirls, gaps and voids, similar to natural slate or even travertine. Because TUSCAN is much thinner than a stamped overlay, it creates a one-of-a-kind self expression by the Sundek artisan installer. Once the TUSCAN material has dried, the artisan then applies stains, dyes, acrylic colors, cut patterns and more to provide a finished look.
