When it comes to pool decking, you have a wide array of options in terms of materials, such as tile, brick and pavers. However, out of all available materials, the most popular one that homeowners tend to use is concrete. Unfortunately, just because it’s popular, it doesn’t mean that you should jump into installing it immediately. In fact, there are a few things that you should consider when it comes to using concrete for your pool deck.
In this post, Guardian Garage Dallas, the experts in applying garage floor epoxy, discusses the important things homeowners should consider when using concrete for their pool deck.
Your pool’s deck is usually left to bake under the sun so it is fairly important for it to be made of materials that can resist heat. That way, your bare feet can withstand stepping on it during the day. This is one of the advantages of using concrete for your pool’s deck. Since it doesn’t feature any materials that can absorb the heat of the sun, concrete doesn’t get too warm when temperatures rise.
On the other hand, if you want to keep your guests and children safe from slipping on your pool’s wet deck, you’ll have to consider the slip resistance of the concrete you’ll be using. This is because if your concrete doesn’t have a textured finished, concrete can be slippery when wet, creating a hazard around your pool. With that in mind, consider adding some aggregate to create a slip-resistant surface. Alternatively, you can also have Guardian Garage Dallas, the pros in applying garage floor coatings, apply a polyaspartic floor coating to the concrete deck to make the surface slip-resistant.
In terms of maintenance, meanwhile, concrete is one of the best materials to use for your pool deck. As it doesn’t require any additional materials apart from an aggregate, maintaining a concrete pool deck should come easy for homeowners.
