The Desert Flex® and the Desert Crete® systems we use in our projects set the industry standard for high quality waterproofing materials when installed properly.

It is always the attention to the little details that gets the job done right no matter what system is used.

We never cut the corners and we are very strict when certain unexpected repairs are needed during the work process.

We also strictly follow the manufacturer's guidance and recommendations for the use of their materials and how to apply them on the job.

Desert Flex® is a deck restoration system designed to restore the original integrity of an existing walking deck system such as concrete, pre-sealed magnesite, elastometric and other various proprietary systems. Desert Flex® will increase the deck waterproofing characteristics and enhance the overall aesthetic appeal in any building.

Desert Flex® system utilizes high quality acrylic resin combined with premium fiberglass reinforcement followed by a knock-down texture or any other method that may be used for variety of textures.

The great advantage fiberglass systems have is in their ability to restore decks and concrete with cracks in them. This can save costs in tearing out decks or sidewalks and re-pouring them. After any cracks are properly repaired, the fiberglass applied over the surface helps hide the cracks, preventing them from telegraphing up through the coating:
