Concrete Pool Deck Applications
One of the biggest trends in outdoor design today is a decorative concrete pool deck; a colored, textured, and inviting area surrounding the pool that does more than provide a safe, slip-resistant deck for sunbathing and barbecuing — it imparts a sense of class, style, and sophistication.
Decorative concrete has opened the doors to creating pool decks that complete the exterior of the home, meld with the outdoor landscape, and replicate exotic and traditionally expensive materials, such as slate, stone, or even wood.
Our concrete pool deck coatings also resist damage from salt, pool chemicals, UV exposure, freeze-thaw cycles, and abrasion.
No decorative concrete pool deck installation is complete without the application of a sealer. This final layer of protection will not only prolong the life of your deck, but also enhance its beauty, and makes the concrete pool deck easier to clean and maintain.
Film-forming sealers are the type most often used for decorative concrete work, and they do just what the name implies — form a protective film on the surface of the concrete that will prevent the intrusion of water, chlorides and harmful pool chemicals. They also impart a sheen that highlights the beauty of coloured or exposed aggregate finishes. Because good traction is so important on pool deck surfaces, a slip-resistant additive can be mixed into the sealer before application. These products will improve traction, while providing a smooth feel underfoot.
Whatever your taste, Artistic Concrete Coatings can help you choose a pattern and colours that fit your own personal sense of style…. We can turn your pool deck into an amazing work of art that you’ll be showing off for many years to come!
