Swimming Pool Decks That Stay Cool in the Heat
Swimming pool season is almost here! You know what that means: suntans, pool parties, cookouts and the HEAT. There’s nothing like jumping in the water to cool off, but depending on what type of pool decking you have, it might hurt to get out due to uncomfortable surface temperatures. Even though most materials will heat up in 90-plus-degree temps, some surfaces are able to stay much cooler. Advances in the concrete industry have made concrete pool decks the number one choice in decking material due to the fact that certain types stay cooler than others. It actually has to do with a concrete resurfacing method, which requires a polymer-based spray on topcoating that doesn’t absorb heat like regular old concrete does. So toss off your flip-flops and look into a “cool decking” system!
