Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions about Stormflow Surfacing?

When and where can Stormflow Surfacing be installed?

Stormflow Surfacing can be installed anywhere that traditional hardscape surfaces can be installed. The advantage to Stormflow can be installed up to 33% degrees of slope. Due to the product being moisture cured, it needs to be installed between 10-32 degrees C with no rain in the forecast.

What are the main advantages of Stormflow versus asphalt and concrete?

Stormflow helps to alleviate stormwater issues. Water doesn't pool and puddle on the surface like it does on concrete and asphalt (this also means so ice in the winter). The product also is made from recycled materials, for every 1000 square feet of Stormflow poured we repurpose 300 tires.

How does Stormflow withstand the harsh Canadian winters?

Stormflow can be shovelled and maintained just like any other surface in the winter (shovel, snow blower or plow). You will also find that you can reduce salt use as water runs through instead of having ice on the surface. We recommend back dragging when using a snowplow. Another main advantage of Stormflow in the winter is our product doesn't crack, due to the base and the rubber used in the surface. It acts like one big expansion joint, allowing the surface to look great year after year.

Why should I use permeable pavement?

Stormflow is porous, which means water flows through the surface back into the water table. This helps cities deal with undersized storm drains during large rain events.
