This top coat is the part where the surface takes on it’s new look. This is where you have the ability to choose the type of stain and coating that you want for your balcony, patio or surface that is being worked on.
In the past, it used to be a common practice to put tiles on top of waterproofing systems. The issue is that if a leak ever occurred, you would need to remove all of the tiles to find and fix the leak. The more efficient way to do this is to put a strain on top of the waterproofing system which can look however you want it to. We have lots of different staining and decorative options which you can find in our gallery.
