If you’re thinking about replacing your pool deck, one of the first questions you’ll have is what to replace it with. Without a doubt, some solutions are more appealing than others, and some function better with pools than others. Finding them can be difficult, but Fuller Concrete Staining has a few options for you to explore.
Natural stone has one major benefit and numerous disadvantages
There’s one thing that almost everyone who works with natural stone agrees on: it’s stunning. It is without a doubt beautiful, timeless, and simply amazing. However, homeowners considering it must determine if the significant disadvantages outweigh the benefits.
Natural stone has a number of disadvantages, including:
- Installing it might be somewhat costly.
- When wet, it becomes slick.
- It requires routine maintenance.
- Natural stone can be easily damaged and is not recommended for heavy use.
- In higher temperatures, it can get quite hot.
If you have an unlimited budget and want to use your pool deck mostly as a place to admire rather than utilize, this may be the ideal option. Otherwise, you might want to think about some other options.
Wooden pool decks are a possibility
Wood is another popular material for pool decks. This is usually reasonably priced. However, there are some significant drawbacks. For starters, most people are aware that wood is not a good surface to get wet on a daily basis. Even if you seal it, water will ultimately get through to the wood and ruin it.
Another concern is that wood takes a great deal of upkeep. You can either sand and refinish it every few years or accept the fact that it will begin to look distorted and faded. Finally, keep in mind that wood is prone to splintering. This may not be a problem right after it’s been sanded and refinished, but it can splinter and injure anyone who steps on it just right within months.
