When summer comes, your pool area and concrete deck become a hub of activity with a lot of traffic. All that fun and activity takes a toll on your pool deck and wears it down faster. Fortunately, you can take a few measures to protect your deck and keep it in its best condition.
One of the best ways to do that is to invest in pool deck coatings. In this post, we’ll discuss the benefits of pool deck coatings in helping you protect and beautify your pool deck.
Benefits of Pool Deck Coatings
Applying a high-quality pool deck coating comes with several benefits, including:
Besides moisture, pool decks contend with dirt, grime, high traffic, UV rays, and much more. Our pool deck coatings can improve your deck’s durability and increase your home’s curb appeal.
You may have noticed that DIY pool deck coating kits offer short-lived protection. We use commercial-grade pool deck coatings that offer maximum protection and stand the test of time.
Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal
A bare concrete pool deck may look dull and boring. Pool deck coatings come in a wide variety of colors and blends that allow you to give your pool a unique sense of style. We can help you choose the right pool deck coating option to create a custom look, texture, and pattern that brings your vision to reality.
Pool decks experience a lot of wear and tear that can make them slippery and dangerous, especially in high-traffic areas. Add a textured surface to your pool deck by coating it. You may also add anti-slip additives for better traction.
You won’t need countless hours to wash your deck and keep it clean. Our seamless coatings make cleaning and removing spills hassle-free.
Are you planning to redo your pool deck? If so, coating it offers a cheaper alternative to removing the existing floor and installing a new one. Pool deck coatings adhere to concrete surfaces, saving you the time and hassle of redoing the deck entirely.
Easy on the Feet
Bare concrete can get uncomfortable to walk on, especially during the hottest summer days. Cool deck coatings will absorb less heat than other materials. You won’t have to worry about heat build-up around your pool area.
Our Pool Deck Coating Process
With experienced technicians that have an eye for detail, we can install your pool deck coatings in a single day. Here’s a breakdown of our pool deck coating process:
- We start by preparing the surface using a shot blaster or diamond grinder.
- Once we have a smooth and level surface, we clean all the debris, remove stains, and repair damaged areas.
- Next, we apply a durable, self-priming polyurea base coat.
- We then hand-cast decorative flakes to give your floor color and texture.
- Once the basecoat cures, we remove excess chips and smoothen the surface.
- Finally, we apply a UV-stable polyaspartic topcoat to protect your pool from extreme weather, UV rays, physical damage, and more.
Polyurea and Polyaspartic Coatings
We use a polyurea base with a polyaspartic topcoat to ensure your pool can withstand all the hazards it comes across. However, we also do epoxy for low-budget projects.
Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings offer the following benefits:
- Fast curing, which makes one-day pool deck coating possible
- Enhanced durability
- High heat tolerance
- High-impact resistance
- Various colors and textures
- A clear finish that adds style to your pool deck.
As seasoned experts, count on us to ensure you get all the benefits mentioned above.
How To Care for Your Pool Deck Coatings
As with most things, proper care and maintenance matters. Maintaining your pool deck coating and addressing minor problems as they arise will save you time and money in the long run. Fortunately, pool deck coatings lend themselves to easy cleaning and maintenance.
Sweep the surface with a broom every so often to eliminate surface pollutants like dirt, grass, and weeds, and maintain the coating’s traction. You can also wash the deck with a mop and soapy water or spray it down to remove stubborn dirt and debris that won’t come off with a broom.
You also want to clean underneath any patio furniture or objects on the deck to prevent staining.
The Bottom Line
Unlike regular patios, pool deck surfaces have special requirements. Your deck needs to be resistant to UV rays, harsh pool chemicals, chlorinated water, and much more. A high-quality pool deck coating will protect your pool and preserve its original beauty.
