Which Costs More? A Pool Deck or a Traditional Deck?
When you start to looking into building a swimming pool, complete with a deck, you might be surprised to find out that pool decks are more expensive than traditional decking. Even if it’s similar in size and built with the same materials. Why is that? Well think about it: When you build a deck for an above-ground pool, you will have to float it, which requires posts. With those posts, come concrete and additional installation and labor fees. When it comes to concrete pool decks – typically associated with in-ground pools – grading and surface leveling will come into play. The most important thing to keep in mind when trying to save costs while building a pool deck, though, is hiring a pool deck contractor, not a traditional deck contractor.
