The pool and deck area of your yard can be a scene for injury, but applying a good concrete coating can greatly reduce this risk. Not only will your pool area be safer, it will look fantastic as well. A concrete coating applied by experienced professionals will last for many years to come and still look as good as the day it was applied.
Concrete coating is an excellent choice for a pool and pool deck because it provides a non-slip surface. This will reduce the incidence of falls and injury in your pool area. The other alternative for a non-slip pool surface is to have a porous or rough texture to the concrete there. This reduces slips, but it is also hard on feet and swimming suits that rub against it. Some types of concrete coating are also heat resistant, so they will feel cool to the touch, even when exposed to direct sunlight. Applying a concrete coating, such as epoxy coating, provides a smooth, non-slip surface that is comfortable and safe.
Water isn’t the only thing that causes damage to the pool area. Chemicals like chlorine and cleaning components also take their toll on pools and decks. Applying a concrete coating will protect the surface of your pool and deck from damage and exposure to these chemicals and significantly increase their life. Concrete coating also guards against damage caused by fluctuation in temperature and exposure to sunlight. A concrete coating will also save you money over the years in costly repairs, which won’t be necessary when the concrete has a good waterproof coating. If you have damaged concrete in a pool area, a coating is an essential element of an effective repair.
Aside from being functional and increasing the life of your pool and deck, concrete coatings also carry an enormous aesthetic value. Concrete coatings can be applied in any color imaginable. They can include beautiful patterns and designs that compliment your space. Whether you’re looking to make a bold statement, or hoping for something that blends with the natural environment of your yard, concrete coating will be a perfect fit. You can easily create an outdoor space that is unique and stylish by applying a simple coating to your concrete pool and patio.
