Most homeowners prefer concrete coatings for the pool deck as they’re durable, easy to maintain, and available in various colors, patterns, and textures. However, durability doesn’t mean you don’t need to maintain your pools. Concrete coatings require timely maintenance and resurfacing to keep the pool decks in good health.
Regular pool maintenance, including cleaning pool deck, repairing chips & cracks, and sealing the concrete, will keep you away from stress and expensive fixes.
Why should you resurface your pool deck?
Aside from the fact that damaged concrete looks a little shabby, too many cracks can make your pool area extremely dangerous for swimmers. Moreover, sharp concrete pool edges aren’t exactly friendly to bare feet. And even a light fall on concrete can hurt you and your kids more than just skinned knees.
Also, the pool water can seap into cracks and chips, ending up getting collected behind the pool walls. Too much water behind the walls can shift the soil, crack the liner pool, and then causing leakage of the pool.
It’s best to resurface your cracked/chipped pool timely, as fixing the poorly maintained concrete pool can be very expensive. You can resurface your swimming pool yourself or hire floor professionals like Transylvania Concrete Coatings to do your job.
How to resurface a pool deck?
If you’re planning to resurface your pool deck, here are a few steps you can follow:
#1. Prepare & Repair your floor – The first step is to etch, grind or shot blast the concrete surface to make it porous. Make sure to fix all the cracks or other existing damages on your floor.
#2. Clean and prime the floor – Use a pressure wash to clean the floor. Let the floor thoroughly dry, and then apply primer if required.
#3. Mix product – Mix the product to prepare it for application. Make sure to follow the instruction manual to prepare the product for the application. You can also mix in color as per your requirement.
#4. Apply overlay – Apply the product/ overlay by rolling, spraying, or troweling to achieve the look you always desired.
#5. Cure and Seal – Once the overlay gets cured, add a sealer to it. The sealer will provide additional protection, greater strength, and enhanced stain resistance.
