Pool Decking: Choosing the Right Materials

Pool Decking: Choosing the Right Materials

Pool Deck is an area immediately surrounding your pool. This space is where you place your lounge chairs and other pool furniture. Your deck creates the look and style of your pool. Materials matter when designing and building your pool deck. You need to take note that this should be stylish and well-constructed.

Here is what you need to know about Deck Materials:

Qualities of a Good Deck Material

Slip Resistant – Pool decks will always get wet during pool use and the pool surface will become slippery. A good deck material should be slip-resistance. These are usually textured surfaces that provide enough slip resistance even when wet.

Thermal Resistance – Nobody wants to walk on a scorching pool deck. You want your deck material to reflect the heat not absorb it. Using light colored tiles or natural stone will minimize the heat held in the flooring.

Water-resistant – Since the pool is always going to be wet, a porcelain tile will have extremely low absorption levels. A natural stone with a good sealer will help to protect against water ingress. Both options are well suited to use around the pool. With the right recommendations, we can advise you on your best solution.
