Frequently ANSWERED Questions

What is SeaDek? SeaDek is a superior alternative to marine carpet and traditional molded-in non-skid. Designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the marine environment, SeaDek is made from UV-resistant closed-cell PE/EVA foam that will not absorb water, and provides exceptional traction when wet or dry. SeaDek’s shock absorbing qualities deliver maximum comfort on the water, and fishermen appreciate its sound-dampening properties. SeaDek is fully customizable, and brings an aesthetically pleasing style to boats of all sizes.


How is SeaDek applied? SeaDek utilizes an acrylic-based 3MTM pressure sensitive adhesive for a robust bond and easy peel-and-stick application.


Can SeaDek be applied over existing non-skid? Yes. SeaDek adheres very well to most molded-in non-skids and properly applied and maintained aggregate type non-skid paints, as long as the surface is cleaned properly prior to installation. For extremely aggressive textures, we recommend sending photos or acquiring samples for testing.

What is the best method to clean SeaDek? SeaDek cleans easily with soap, hot water, and a stiff brush. For stubborn areas, a number of household products can be used, such as SoftScrub, Simple Green, 409, or bleach. Do not use acid-based cleaners such as MaryKate's Hull Cleaner.


What is the cost per square foot? Custom SeaDek pricing is based on number of sheets used. Please contact us at https://topsidecustom.com/free-estimates for specific pricing information. 


What is the largest size I can order? The largest SeaDek sheets available measure 39”x77”.


What is the life expectancy? In the harshest conditions, SeaDek can be expected to last 5-7 years. If the boat is covered and/or well taken care of, a longer life is likely.


What is the warranty? SeaDek products are warranted to be free from any defects at the time of purchase. The PE/EVA blended material has a 3 year material and workmanship warranty. The PSA cannot be warranted due to many outside issues that may be present during installation. Full warranty details are available for download here:  Warranty Information


Does SeaDek get hot? As with any flooring products, darker colors will naturally become warmer in the sun. With that being said, SeaDek will not become too hot to stand on, and dispels heat very quickly thanks to its closed-cell structure.


Can SeaDek sheets be seamed? While SeaDek sheets can be seamed, we do recommend against it. Over time, the PE/EVA blended material may naturally shrink up to ¼”, and for this reason, we suggest leaving a ½” gap between parts. 


How long will it stayed adhered? With proper surface preparation and installation, a minimum of 5-7 years can be expected.


Can you do custom logos? Yes, we can cut logos and text if supplied with a vector graphic of the logo, or given desired text style. Please note that written approval will be needed to produce any copyrighted logos.


How much is it for custom logos? Custom logos start out at $30.00 if we have it on file, and $50.00 for custom text/graphics.


Is the product pet friendly (dogs)? Many people use SeaDek to keep pets firmly planted on the boat, however SeaDek is made from PE/EVA blended foam materials, so if scratched or clawed at enough, the product will tear or rip. With this being said, SeaDek’s closed-cell material will not absorb water if punctured. SeaDek is not warranted against pet damage.


Will the product stain? SeaDek is extremely stain resistant, however a few substances, such as fuel stabilizers, bird droppings, rust, and mustard can be problematic if not attended to in a timely manner. Prompt attention to these types of spills will ensure easy removal.
