What type of decking is best around a pool?
You have lots of choices when it comes to your pool decking. Let Aquanomics Pools help you find the best one for your pool.
Poured concrete has been the material of choice for pool decking for decades because it’s durable and water-resistant. When finished with a brushed surface, poured concrete allows swimmers to walk barefooted without the risk of slipping.
Some of the coolest options for pool deck surfaces are textured acrylic coatings. These coatings, made of concrete and acrylic, will absorb less heat than other materials. Texture also makes the surface feel cooler to the touch because when a person walks on it, their bare feet are exposed to less surface area.
If you’ve finally made the jump to designing the pool for your backyard, travertine is a perfect choice for pool decking. It’s beautiful and functional so you can enjoy your pool area all season long.
Spray-Deck is a textured decorative cover-up that goes on top of the unsightly concrete to create a rich, textured, non-skid surface. Spray-Deck comes in a variety of colors and can transform surfaces in a simple and effective manner. This is the best option if you have rough concrete that hurts your feet and gets hot.
