TOP-OF-THE-LINE POOL DECK COATINGS AND OVERLAYS
When it comes to updating or renovating a concrete pool deck, we offer only the best options for a pool deck material. Each option provides features and benefits that will surely meet your needs and exceed your expectations.
- Stamped Concrete – This can be done directly on a new pour or on an existing concrete pool deck. On an old deck, a thin layer of a cementitious overlay is poured and spread on the surface. Stamp mats, bearing the design or pattern of your choice, are then laid out on it to make an imprint. The stamped pattern not only improves the aesthetics of a pool deck, it also adds grooves that is necessary to enhance grip and traction.
- Sundek Classic Texture – This option involves the use of an acrylic concrete coating that is sprayed down on the surface rather than poured and spread. Using a hopper gun, splatters of material are spread on the surface and then later knocked down manually with a trowel. Its look is similar to a stucco wall but with a more subtle texture. This is popular for pool decks because it is not slippery and it is cool to the feet.
- Stained Concrete – If your pool deck merely suffers from aesthetic issues, stained concrete can do the trick. Concrete stains come in two types: acid and water-based. Both penetrate deep into the slab to provide a long-lasting color that won’t fade, flake, or peel. Acid stains are semi-translucent and it creates a chemical reaction that makes random effects of varying color tones appear. Water-based stains are opaque and consistent in color.

You can even make it look like real stone. Whatever look you have in mind, we can make it happen.

HIGHLY RELIABLE CONCRETE POOL DECK SERVICES
Concrete is a durable material. However, it can wear out and acquire damage as it ages, as it gets used, and when it is exposed to damaging elements for too long. We offer concrete pool deck services that aim to address issues and provide longer-lasting solutions.

With the addition of coatings or overlays, the new pool deck surface becomes more resistant to weather, stains, foot traffic, water, and other elements that could harm it.
- Pool Deck Refinishing – Refinishing is the process of changing the finish of the pool deck but leaving the rest of the slab intact. Stained concrete is one way of refinishing a pool deck. It effectively covers up unwanted superficial issues and gives the deck a whole new look.
