Concrete becomes a durable product when properly installed with controls joints to minimize cracking and rebar added for tensile strength. Overall, it is a cost effective and versatile product. .Concrete is available in salt, broom, washed or stamped finishes. We have examples of these finishes at our showroom.
Another beautiful option for pool decks is natural stone. The same stones we use for the coping around the pool can be used in a decking application. A deck would use a thinner Quartzite or sandstone that would be mortared to a concrete sub base. Travertine is another alluring option available in cream and beige tones. Travertine can be sand set the same way pavers are installed. We have several natural stones available in our showroom.
Often times we come across concrete decks that are in great shape structurally with very few cracks, but the concrete is just stained and discolored. This is a great time to consider a deck coating overlay. An overlay is a ¼” thick cementitious coating that is applied on top of the existing concrete.
