Concrete is a popular material for patios and driveways now, even though up until recently, it hadn’t really been the go-to for pool decks. However, concrete pool deck options provide more aesthetic variety (not to mention longevity) than you might think.
At Speakman Coatings, we’ve installed a wide variety of concrete pool decks and deck coatings that have taken on all kinds of shapes, colors, styles, and aesthetic appearances. We know first-hand the reasons why concrete is such a rising star when it comes to pool decking.
Concrete is strong, it’s versatile, it’s cost-effective, and it’s probably more comfortable to walk upon with bare feet than it was when it was first used back in 1400 BC.
Concrete Pool Deck Options
Concrete has a lot going for it when used around a pool. It’s classic, it’s affordable, and it’s simple. What you may not know is that it can actually take on many different looks, depending on how it’s used, installed, sealed, and finished. Some of the most popular concrete pool deck options include:
- Stamped concrete
- Broom-finished concrete
- Textured concrete
- Colored concrete
One of the most popular reasons for installing concrete pool decks is that the concrete, ironically, can be made to not look like concrete!
Stamped concrete is a great example of concrete that doesn’t look like concrete. We can make stamped concrete look like all kinds of other materials and take on the life of some really beautiful patterns.
Our team can make stamped concrete options to mimic many materials, including:
- Natural stone
- All-natural wood
Stamped concrete can be an affordable and durable alternative to premium stone or all-wood decks, both of which could cost you a small fortune.
Just as it sounds, this textured concrete option has a little more character than plain poured concrete. It’s achieved by dragging a broom across the top surface before the concrete sets, giving the deck a more slip-resistant surface.
Textured Concrete Pool Decks
Textured concrete is stamped to give it character and is like a middle-ground between broomed and stamped decks. While stamped concrete must have a sealant over the top, textured concrete doesn’t require color or sealant. This design makes it less slippery and less costly than a stamped concrete pool deck.
Colored Concrete Pool Decking
Stamped concrete often uses colors to achieve the desired aesthetic effect. Popular colors used include various shades of red, brown, green, tan, and others. Colors are especially useful when resurfacing is done to mimic wood or stone.
Stamped Concrete Overlay and Resurfacing
If you have an existing concrete pool deck and are looking to up the ante with a little (or a lot) more pizazz, Speakman Coatings can install a stamped concrete overlay for you. Stamped concrete resurfacing gives all of the aesthetic benefits of a full stamped concrete deck by using your existing concrete as a base.
Concrete Pool deck resurfacing is available in several options and is installed over existing concrete by hand by Speakman Coatings. Our customers can customize concrete surfaces with various color options and designs, making each deck a truly one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
Wood Stamped Concrete Pool Deck Resurfacing
One of the best ways to get the look of an all-wood deck without the cost (or splinters) is to opt for a decorative concrete wood resurfacing finish. This faux wood option is created with industrial strength products and mimics the gorgeous, natural look of wood.
Kansas City is abuzz with talk about this option’s ability to withstand heavy traffic, tolerate all of the weather Mother Nature can throw at it, and permanently transform the look of pool areas. Ask us at Speakman Coatings for more information!
