Swimming pools provide the ultimate entertainment spots to have some fun, relax, and enjoy the summer with family and friends. While all the attention often goes to the swimming pool, the pool deck’s appearance says plenty about your landscape.
Tired of a dull, faded, or aged pool deck? Trust the Epoxy Time team to update your pool deck at an affordable cost with high-quality pool deck coatings. We proudly serve Orange County and the surrounding areas.
Coating your deck goes a long way toward giving your pool area a facelift and elevating your overall pool experience. Let’s discuss how a pool deck coating is an inexpensive way to give your pool area a new look.
Reasons to Coat Your Pool Deck
In many cases, pool deck coatings provide a cheaper alternative to pool renovations, such as deck replacement, and the results often look better than before. Pool deck coatings also help to save you money by preventing premature damage to the deck surface.
Some of the reasons pool deck coating keeps gaining popularity among pool owners include:
Affordable and Cost-effective
Perfectly inexpensive when you consider the long-term savings, high-quality pool deck coatings will scream lavish style for your outdoor area without breaking the bank. If you plan to sell your house, coating your deck may make it more attractive to potential buyers.
Installing a coating also helps to minimize the cost of repairs.
Reduced Time and Money on Maintenance
Pool decks have a reputation for being challenging to clean and maintain, and you often must deal with everything from standing water to accumulated dirt and debris.
If you have a cracked, bare concrete deck, water will find its way into the crack, creating a conducive environment for mold, bacteria, and other germs to thrive. Mold and bacteria on your deck present a hazard and may also begin to discolor or damage your deck if left to build up.
Because our pool deck coatings at Epoxy Time create a waterproof barrier over your deck, bacteria won’t have a chance to gain a foothold on the deck. You’ll also have an easy time cleaning.
Protecting your pool deck from damage matters, but protecting the people who use it matters more. While pool decks can handle getting wet from water splashes, a slippery deck raises the risk of slip-and-fall accidents.
If you have a concrete pool deck, coating it and incorporating anti-slip additives provides significantly more traction when wet, lowering the risk of accidents and improving safety overall.
Pool deck coatings come in various color and design options. At Epoxy Time, we recognize that creating a truly unique pool deck begins with having the freedom to customize it the way you want.
Our extensive range of concrete resurfacing and coating options allows us to install custom coatings. Choose a color that reflects your unique taste and style, or let us customize the colors for a one-of-a-kind look.
Easier on Bare Feet
Polyurea and polyaspartic coatings reflect rather than retain heat. Unlike bare concrete or brick, the coating will reflect UV rays, making the surface comfortable to walk on with bare feet.
Polyaspartic and polyurea pool deck coatings won’t fade or break down when exposed to UV rays. Since most decks see direct sunlight, this is an essential feature. UV rays will break down epoxy coatings and cause discoloration or chalking.
Polyaspartic and polyurea coatings, on the other hand, will provide lasting protection for your pool deck without losing color.
Most pool owners choose concrete as the material of choice for their pool deck. It’s comfortable, durable, safe, and non-slippery; however, that doesn’t make it indestructible. Temperature fluctuations will cause bare concrete to crack.
High-quality pool deck coatings boast resistance to pool chemicals, impact, abrasions, and more, making them ideal for high-traffic areas like pool decks. The coating may also help to prevent the concrete slab from cracking and chipping.
Polyaspartic vs. Epoxy Coatings
At Epoxy Time, we do an epoxy base coat and polyaspartic top coat or a polyurea base coat with a polyaspartic top coat. Benefits of polyaspartic and polyurea over epoxy include:
- Better resistance to scratches, abrasions, and general wear and tear
- Faster curing times that allow for one-day applications
- Easy to apply and adhere to concrete surfaces better than epoxy
- Unlike epoxy, which requires moderate temperatures for application, you can apply polyurea and polyaspartic coatings any time of the year, even in -40°F
- High resistance to pool chemicals and spills
- A UV-stable topcoat that prevents yellowing over time and maintains the glossy finish
How Long Do Pool Deck Coatings Last?
Several factors, including the type of pool deck coating, will affect the coating’s lifespan. Properly installed deck coatings can last ten years or more without significant issues. Tips to make the most of your pool deck coating and increase its useful life include:
- Investing in a high-quality coating
- Keeping up with cleaning and maintenance
- Hiring professional installers
