Concrete Coatings for Your Pool Deck

Concrete Coatings for Your Pool Deck

Pool decks are often made of concrete, which can be subject to cracking, dents and dings, and color fading. These cracks and other flaws will grow over time, creating an unseemly look and a hazardous walking surface. Pool deck resurfacing is a process that either repairs damaged concrete surfaces or updates their look. Hiring a professional concrete flooring specialist to apply an overlay product will add strength and security to your pool deck.

Why Should I Resurface My Pool Deck?

There are many reasons why you might want to have your pool deck resurfaced. Perhaps the deck is uneven, or has suffered stains, cracks, or other damage. Rather than performing spot repairs on affected areas, it might make more sense to have the entire deck resurfaced. If your existing deck has cracks, they’re going to need to be filled in before the actual resurfacing takes place. It’s important that you understand the reasons the cracks appeared in the first place, so that any underlying issues can be addressed. Many things can cause cracks to form on your Maryland pool deck. It’s possible that the installation was done improperly or poorly. The concrete mix itself may have been off. More likely, however, the damage was caused by the freeze/thaw cycle or by poorly compacted soil underneath the concrete. It is also possible that roots from a nearby tree have risen up and caused the concrete to crack.

Benefits of Resurfacing

At DC Generals, we have the experience and skill necessary to install high-quality, durable pool deck coatings. Your new deck coating should last for years and years, so we strive to work closely with our clients to create a plan that satisfies your needs and fits within your budget. Our coating process can typically be completed in a day or less, and you’ll be able to walk on your new deck in as few as four hours after application. There are other benefits to choosing a local concrete flooring specialist to perform your resurfacing project. Not only does our material have a fast cure time, allowing us to perform our one-day installations, but the deck coating is chemical and abrasion resistant, allowing for true protection of your pool deck’s surface. We also have slip-resistant, textured options to alleviate any safety concerns, as well as a wide selection of customizable styles and colors, allowing for the maximum personalization.

Resurfacing Process

Our concrete pool deck resurfacing process begins with your existing concrete surface. Our contractors will prepare the concrete, which includes repairing any cracks or underlying issues. Once the surface has been prepared, we will begin actually coating the concrete surface. If your existing deck is uneven, we can apply more of our coating material in the low sections, resulting in an even surface without trip hazards or places for water to pool unwantedly. Our professional contractors can fill in concrete joints, creating a truly seamless surface.

A good, durable concrete pool deck coating can make all the difference when impressing your friends and neighbors. You want your outdoor spaces to be comfortable, functional, and safe, and with DC Generals, you can have it all!

“I heard about the benefits of having my garage floor done by DC Generals Concrete Coatings, but the outcome exceeded my expectations! The garage looks 10x better and feels more like a living space now. No more oil stains since any new ones can be cleaned up. The job only took one day and it gave me an excuse to clean out my garage. I highly recommend DC Generals Concrete Coatings and their PennTek product. I will never own another house without having a PennTek garage.”
