Pool Deck Stamped Concrete Services for Port St Lucie Residents
Most people consider brick pavers when they think about pool deck resurfacing. Or maybe they are just working on the construction and want to develop a good surface. Although they are beautiful, quite durable, and easy to repair, they are also expensive. At least, among all the options available, they can be costly. Pool deck-stamped concrete may differ but offers aesthetics, durability, and longevity. All these benefits while being able to keep the project within budget. We at SoFlo Pool Decks and Pavers of Port St. Lucie can help you get the most stunning deck.
What we do is provide you with examples and ideas. Suppose you are unfamiliar with how stunning stamped concrete looks. We start here. Though, we are confident you will probably search on the internet or take the time to look at some pictures. Still, we want to ensure you have a good concept for your space based on your outdoors. It is quite different from picturing it to seeing how it may look with a good example in place.
Our team goes through all the “trouble” so you can be comfortable and happy with the result. The reason we recommend this concrete option is mostly due to its durability. Yes, most people will associate any pool deck made of concrete with cracks and repairs. However, this isn’t the norm.
If you provide basic and frequent maintenance, it can last for decades. It is a matter of considering the pros and cons and knowing that each surface type comes with considerations. For instance, brick pavers can easily crack and be a long-term expense. They can be repaired by only replacing the piece, and some maintenance can be done more often.
Stamped concrete is a bit different in this aspect. You can delay some repairs—although we don’t recommend it—and they are usually solved by filling cracks. You can always reseal the surface, so you don’t have the color fade. Maintenance or cleaning is simple, and concrete will never disappoint your regular activities. It is also safer and more stable if you build or include some features in your outdoors later.
We want to address the usual cons or problems with stamped concrete before you keep considering the option. This way, you will know what you are diving in and what you can expect from this process:
- It is slippery. Unlike what some contractors will tell you, stamped concrete will not be non-slippery. Due to the finish and smooth surface, you get, you have to work your way around it. What truly makes it non-slippery is the addition of a skid-resistant additive to the sealer. This isn’t expensive, but we do everything, so it is reflected in the estimate.
- Resealing is crucial to maintain your pool deck’s condition or state. It should be done every 2 to 4 years. In our case, we often do it every three years for our clients.
- The color or features can fade easily if exposed to nature or weather, which is exactly what will happen. However, sealing it correctly will prevent this.
- Concrete does crack and gets damaged. But this is just like any other surface; unlike them, it can be easily fixed.
Is Stamped Concrete Worth It for Residential & Commercial Pool Decks?
Yes and no. Although you will see most pool decks made of concrete, this isn’t always the best idea. We don’t want to sell you an option as the best for several reasons:
- It depends greatly on your preferences and what you want for your space.
- Your budget matters in the short and long term.
- The type of pool and foot traffic will vary, influencing the decision for your surface and deck.
- The specific maintenance you can provide it.
- If you are looking for a basic or quite stunning design.
In most cases, we recommend it to homeowners with a pool area or wanting to get a deck. It will look stunning and won’t require a fortune to build or install. Considering most residential pools aren’t used by many people but rather a families and visitors, it is different from a residential ones.
For instance, hotels need to have quite a resilient and durable pool deck. Stamped concrete may not be the best in those cases for multiple reasons:
- You may want a high-end look and not just apparent it with concrete.
- You can deal with repairs and resealing more often due to the foot traffic. This leads to more expenses.
- It may not be the best option for your entire pool area’s design and style.
