Pools and Decks
Concrete Pools and Decks
Considering the fact that you will most likely be spending as much time on the deck as you will in the pool, your choice of deck material can make a huge difference in the how much you will enjoy your pool area.
It is recommended to have textured surfaces so you won’t slip and lighter colors so you and your guests will not burn your feet.
These are the types of pool and deck materials we use to professionally install concrete pools and decks:
Concrete or Brick Pavers
Concrete or Brick Pavers offer a lot of design flexibility because they come in a wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes. Typically pavers are more expensive than poured concrete however they can be more cost-effective in the long run because it is easier to replace individual pavers. It is also easier to expand the deck at any time using individual pavers. We use polymeric sand which is more weed resistant.
In Florida, poured concrete is more popular because of the year-round higher heat. Up North, frozen concrete decks may crack. Poured concrete can be custom designed because there are a plethora of colors and finishes. Poured concrete can also be painted or stained. For a more intriguing design and increased slip resistance, poured concrete can be finished with a rough broom or exposed aggregate.
Also, stamped concrete can look just like natural stone or brick. We have references for your stamped concrete work. Not every contractor has the skill, experience and ability to stamp concrete correctly.
One good thing about poured concrete is that concrete decks can be resurfaced inexpensively.
Stone pavers are both durable and aesthetically pleasing because they look so natural. Stone pavers are the most expensive alternative for a pool deck but if your budget allows, they look great. Stone is heavier than concrete pavers and they come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors.
