Re: fiberglass textured deck repair questions

I refinished our deck with kiwi grip and went right over the original diomand nonskid. Applied thick enough it covered the old, very happy with the results

If you want to preserve the original diamond pattern you can purchase any production pattern from Gibco Mold Flex. They manufacture fiberglass panels with the pattern molded in gel coat and you just cut to shape and glue them down. There is a little finish work to do on the cut edges but no big deal.

Re: fiberglass textured deck repair questions

If you REALLY want to keep it more or less original, you can do that too.

The diamond texture is nothing more than gelcoat, and can be repaired. Here's a
on how to do it.

The Gibco mold can be a little expensive -- I've made my own for small repairs using latex available at crafts stores (like Michaels.) You just find a spot on your nonskid that is in good shape and add multiple layers of latex to build it up into a usable thickness.
