The decking is the most visible and occupied area of your pool. It is also one of the most critical areas to invest properly as it needs to be both beautiful and durable. You have several options when it come to your decking:
- Spray deck - a natural concrete base will be poured and will need a curing period of two to seven days, depending on the time of year. A protective acrylic coating will be applied. This process usually takes about a day.
- Exposed Aggregate - a natural concrete base will be poured. The concrete will be allowed to set for a couple of hours before the chosen aggregate is applied by hand, allowed to set, then washed to bring out the colors of the aggregate.
- Patterned Concrete - The process of stamped or patterned concrete creates a custom look similar to cobblestone, brick, or flagstone. The process begins much like the spray deck process, but then a selected color and pattern is applied to the concrete base.
- Natural Stone or Paver Deck - a natural concrete base will be poured and allowed to cure for two to seven days, depending on weather. The selected stone will be laid and grouted. Paver decks are sometimes finished with a fine sand rather than a grout between the pavers.
