Concrete overlay on pool deck

Concrete Overlays

Concrete overlays are one method of performing pool deck repair.  However, before we discuss concrete overlays, let’s discuss all 3 pool deck repair methods to help you choose the best method.

Pool Deck Repair

Pool deck repair depends upon the amount of damage to the pool deck’s surface and to the underlying concrete slab, itself.

Concrete is a dense, but very porous product. Heat, cold and moisture are hard on unsealed concrete. Heat causes it to expand. Cold causes it to contract. When moisture gets under the slab through cracks, it can damage the slab. Surface spalling can also occur to the pool deck’s surface.

Concrete Overlays and Pool Deck Coatings

We offer 3 levels of pool deck repair. 

  1. Pool deck refinishing with stains and sealants (with optional color and visual design). 
  2. Pool deck resurfacing with concrete overlay (with optional color and texture stamping). 
  3. Pool deck tear out and replace of broken or badly damaged concrete (with optional texture stamping and color).

Pool Deck Refinishing

If the slab is still in good structural shape, but has stains, discolorations, fading, or you would like a new color; refinishing is a good option.  This is performed with concrete stains, coatings, and pool deck sealers.

Pool Deck Resurfacing Overlay

If the slab damage is minor, and only damaged on the top surface (with no large or deep cracks throughout), resurfacing may be a good option.  A new surface is applied with a thin layer of concrete overlay or a special coating to resurface it.  Resurfacing not only can give a pool deck longer slab life, but can update its appearance with different textures and colors.

Stained Concrete

Stained concrete is very popular. Pool deck stains are available in approximately 30 colors. After proper surface preparation, the experienced decorative concrete contractor will add the color mix to the concrete overlay material. Acetone dyes can be applied to give the pool deck a little more visual depth of color.

Proper Pool Deck Maintenance

Sealing your pool deck every few years with a good, commercial grade sealant is the best and most cost effective preventive maintenance measure.  Re-sealing a pool deck will enhance its appearance, improve its functionality, and extend its lifespan.
