How SUNDEK Supports Our Authorized Contractors
It's cliche for companies to just promise leads. You've heard that promise before. That's why we're sharing the actual results for our contractors in 2021:
- Contractor Locator views on Sundek.com - 22,877
- Phone calls from potential customers – 2,161
- Form submissions from potential customers – 2,095
In 2019, we committed to be the leader in generating leads for our contractors via online marketing. Now, that commitment is stronger than ever. Here's what we're doing to deliver on our promise:
- Updating our website (Sundek.com) with new or expanded content weekly. Each piece of optimized content acts like a marketing agent to bring in more prospective customers.
- Optimizing our website to increase views. The energy we put toward SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is unparalleled. The same company that optimizes ConcreteNetwork.com and GardenDesign.com (over 20 million visitors per year) optimizes our website.
- Building and adding to Best Practice Guides and Style Guides that consumers and builders can refer to for their projects, helping SUNDEK stand out in the industry.
In addition to the work on our website, here are other ways we support our Authorized Contractors:
Recognized as a market leader and continuous innovator, SUNDEK® pioneered the decorative concrete industry, and our products have a proven track record dating back to 1970. To meet the needs of commercial and residential customers, we have assembled a broad array of high-quality products, including interior and exterior solutions—some of which we manufacture, distribute, and install, and others that we simply distribute, both on an exclusive and non-exclusive basis.

The SUNDEK Story
Why Are We Industry Leaders?
Founded in 1970 by three brothers in Southern California, SUNDEK originated as a family business and has grown to become an internationally recognized leader. The basic technology of combining Portland cement, silica sand and plastics as a repair and maintenance procedure for large, existing concrete projects has been used for more than 70 years. However, SUNDEK reformulated the central premise of this technology to create a coating that could be applied as a remodeling finish over existing concrete surfaces.
A few years later, the company added a breathable-finish coat process to facilitate ease of cleaning and repairability, which brought a maintenance aspect to our business, and is one of the keys to the success of our process. The family of SUNDEK coatings was later further expanded to include SUNDEK® Masonry Effects, giving us unlimited design capabilities—and the demand for our products increased dramatically.
In the early 1980s, SUNDEK management created the SUNDEK Authorized Contractor program. Founded on a strong commitment to each contractor, this initiative was launched based on a set of distinct premises, including the provision of an exclusive geographic area to each contractor. This allows every contractor to sell and install SUNDEK with strict quality control of the application process, and without the worry of direct competition from other contractors.
The ‘90s brought innovation in the form of various effects to enhance the capabilities of our existing systems. Custom Scoreline Effect was a game-changer, as we developed a process to incorporate cracked concrete into a custom pattern of nature-made and hand-made scored designs to camouflage the cracks. This concept of working with the elements resulted in SUNDEK Aggregate Effects: multiple dots of colors applied to the surface to help hide dirt and debris and provide a maintenance-friendly surface.
The new millennium continues SUNDEK’s reputation as THE concrete coating of choice. We use that reputation to introduce our expanded system offerings such as our garage floor epoxies and more. Today, SUNDEK is owned by parent company The Coatings Group, and proactively focuses on contractor development, training, and support because we realize that our success depends on yours. We gladly offer all our resources, experience, knowledge, and training to help you realize your financial objectives.
