An outdoor space in sunny California is best maximized with a swimming pool. You could be out doing some laps, playing pool games with your family, or just lounging around it with friends. No matter what it is you love doing around the pool, it is important that the pool deck is attractive and safe enough to optimize the experience. If you are not ready for an expensive concrete replacement, then decorative concrete resurfacing is for you.
Pool Deck Texture Coatings
There are many pool deck options out there but resurfacing the concrete surface is a quicker and a more economical choice. And that is without compromising appeal, safety, and durability. Here are the top pool deck coating options you should consider:
Spray Knock Down Finish
- This spray texture system is highly recommended for concrete pool decks. Instead of roller brushing the knockdown texture on concrete, it is sprayed with a gravity-fed hopper gun. The knockdown finish is acquired when the sprayed coating is knocked down manually with a hand trowel. This trowel finish is slip-resistant, durable, and absolutely pleasing to the eye.
Stamped Concrete Overlay
- This decorative concrete overlay is popular for use on most outdoor surfaces. Homeowners would be glad to know that there are various patterns to choose from so you can choose something that you would actually love looking at. What’s better than being able to choose a design? The patterns are imprinted on the overlay so it creates a non-skid surface that helps prevent slips and falls. You can opt to have it stained, too, to a color that would best enhance the look of the pool area.
Decorative Concrete Design Options
The great thing about resurfacing swimming pool decks is that you can customize the look to suit your lifestyle and design interests. For a knock-down finish, you can choose to have designs scored or engraved to make it more interesting. You can also choose to have this finish on the majority of the space and then add stamped overlays in chosen sections. For example, imprint a brick or flagstone pattern on the pool coping to enhance the look of the pool. You can also put a stamped overlay on the walkway, the lounging area where the beach chairs are, or to highlight a focal point like a fire pit or statue. The design possibilities are endless.
