Pools are the gateway to everyone’s hearts, from six to sixty. You know it’s true. No matter what your age, when you see a pool, it brings out the kid in you. So, when guests see there is a pool in your house, there is no way they can resist complementing your taste. But have you considered the possibility that an enjoyable day at the poolside can be potentially marred if your swimming pool deck looks no different than the deck at the community swimming pool? You were horrified just thinking about it, were you not? Yet, many people make exactly that mistake. They get their pool deck made with plain concrete or tiles.
Not only will it look like an obsolete model, but chances are, the water will make the tiles so slippery that someone will take a bad fall and ruin their day. If you foresaw that and went ahead and got a simple cemented pool deck, then you will see another funny sight, where people will be hobbling across the cement and probably cursing someone or something. Suncoast Stamped Concrete is here to prevent any of these scenarios and tell you about one of the best innovations in the business of pool deck resurfacing.
What are my pool deck resurfacing options?
Your options for a great-looking pool deck are many. In fact, you can get about anything you want. But just because you can get them does not mean you should. Wood is of course the biggest no-no. Everyone knows wood and water does not mix well. Some people do get some success by using marble or stone. They look really pretty, with marble imparting pool decks that posh look while stone can be used to recreate the design of a natural pool or spring. But if you live in Lehigh Acres, Florida, we strongly advise against these. The sunlight can turn a stone or marble pool deck so hot that you will end up with severe burns. Marble also has the same problem as tiles - you can skid easily on it. That leaves us with concrete. Even within concrete pool deck resurfacing, you get two types. A normal concrete overlay can be used, with spray deck being the most popular finish. But with this too, the overheating problem persists. Concrete overlay or stamped concrete gives you many options of colors and textures to update the look of your outdated kool deck or spray deck finish.
What is Kool Deck resurfacing?
Kool Deck is a concrete resurfacing material that was invented way back in 1962, by Mortex. It develops a naturally textured surface after it has cured. Its alternative name is Pool deck. It is not applied directly. You need to have a base concrete layer, over which the kool deck mixture is poured in a layer. The most popular spot where kool deck resurfacing is usually done is a pool deck. At Suncoast Stamped Concrete, we can update your outdated kool deck with our concrete designs using our overlay process to go over your existing deck.
Why is the Pool Deck resurfacing the best option?
Pool Deck or Kool deck resurfacing is the best concrete pool deck resurfacing that you can get. The first and most important characteristic of the Pool deck that you get to enjoy is in its name itself. A Pool deck, due to its inherent property, keeps the surface of the pool deck cool to the touch, even when the temperatures are soaring. This means you no longer have to tiptoe or dash across the pool deck to reach the water. You can walk comfortably across the cool surface without getting painful burns and keep enjoying a fun day in the water. There is also another important feature of the Pool deck, and this can be deduced from the most popular use of cool deck resurfacing. This refers to the ability of a cool deck to absorb the water right into its layers and drain the surface of any trace of wetness. Thus, you will not have to fear slipping and falling flat onto the pool deck anymore. Neither will you be splashing the people around you in an annoying manner.
How do I know if I have a genuine Pool deck?
There is not much difference in the final looks of a Pool deck and a plain concrete deck that has a spray finish. So, there is no way you can tell them apart by just looking. Not all the concrete resurfacing contractors in Florida are as honest and sincere as the ones at Suncoast Stamped Concrete. So, if you are in doubt, the best method of knowing if your concrete contractor actually installed a Pool deck or not is by testing them in action. The simplest way is to just pour a glass of water onto your swimming pool deck. If most of the water just runs off and the amount of water seeping in is not visible to the naked eye, then you definitely have a normal concrete deck with a spray finish. If you pour a glass of water onto a Pool deck, all the water will just kind of disappear into the concrete of the deck. The effect is very similar to pouring water onto the sand. Otherwise, you can just walk onto your deck on a sunny day. If it feels warm, you definitely have a normal concrete pool deck. If the deck feels unnaturally cool to your feet, then you can rest assured, you have the genuine cool deck finish.
Pools are all about fun and frolic. Pool parties are loved by everyone. But no one likes to slip or burn their feet when they have come to enjoy. So, give your guests the best treatment you can, with a top-quality cool deck resurfacing service by our contractors at Suncoast Stamped Concrete.
