If you can’t appreciate the pool deck anymore, maybe it is time update its form and function. Pool deck overlays come in a variety of types, all of which are decorative, durable, and affordable. Doing a makeover does not have to involve a large amount of money or anything evasive to someone’s home or public deck. With the right type of overlay, any concrete can look and function like the most awesome surface anyone can ever imagine.
Highly Recommended Decorative Concrete Coatings
There are many different coatings out there for use on pool decks. However, not everything that claims to be what they are can resolve the need for a more appealing, more durable, and more functional surface. Here are the coatings that contractors recommend for resurfacing concrete:
This is a concrete overlay popularly used on outdoor surfaces. A layer of this material is installed on the pool deck, stamped with the desired design, and then stained and sealed, depending on the planned design. The grooves that the stamped design makes create a slip-resistant surface that is safe to walk on even when wet. This overlay can effectively mimic the look and form of natural stone pavers, brick patterns, tile, and other paving materials.
Spray Knockdown Finish
This is a spray-down system involving the use of an acrylic coating, a hopper gun, and a trowel. The finished surface looks like a stucco wall but with a more subtle texture to make it possible for people to walk on it comfortably. The knocked down texture makes the pool deck slip-resistant. One notable feature of a spray texture is its ability to maintain a cool temperature. This cool decking coating stays 30% cooler than other paving materials, despite long exposure to sunlight.
