With a rough winter behind us and summer in full force, you and your family are probably enjoying the warm days spent by the pool. This is a great time to take a closer look at your pool deck and concrete resurfacing. Here are three reasons why concrete resurfacing may be a wise decision:
1. Improved pool deck safety
A major concern with many pool decks is the fact that they are slippery when wet. Put kids together for a pool party and it’s inevitable that running around the pool will be part of the picture. Concrete pool deck resurfacing is an ideal way to reduce slips and accidental falls. Grit, such as aluminum oxide, can be incorporated into the concrete resurfacing material and is a highly effective way of increasing slip resistance.
2. More attractive outdoor spaces
Resurfacing your pool deck is an economical way to make your outdoor recreation area more aesthetically pleasing. When resurfacing concrete, it’s possible to add color and texture to the pool deck surface. With stamping or stenciling, concrete can be made to look like stone or other materials.
Concrete resurfacing is an economical way to refresh a pool deck. Small cracks, stains, and wear and tear can easily be covered at a fraction of the cost of replacing the entire pool deck. Resurfacing a pool deck also strengthens the concrete, increasing the life span of your pool area and making it look like new.
When looking for a company to resurface your pool deck, remember that preparation is one of the most important aspects of the process. Look for a firm that will clean the existing concrete, remove any areas that are loose, and prepare the surface to guarantee that the final coating materials can be applied evenly and will create a strong bond.
