Concrete Decks and Patios
There’s nothing hotter than outdoor living spaces. Transport yourself from reality to tranquility instantly with a backyard oasis, customized swimming pool and deck, or perhaps an outdoor kitchen. Who needs an expensive vacation when you can simply step outside? With so many design options, you have a lot to think about regarding your permanent “stay-cation,” don’t you?
Which building material should you use to build your deck and/or patio area?
In terms of popularity, style and versatility, decorative concrete is the clear winner. Concrete surfacing companies like SUNDEK of Washington have made choosing concrete as a design element an easy and affordable option when it comes to concrete pool decking and patios.
If you love the look of natural stone, slate tile or brick, consider a concrete pool deck coating, such as SUNDEK Classic Texture. This revolutionary product allows you to create custom masonry, aggregate or scoreline effects onto your concrete deck or patio. It comes in a multitude of colors, will impress your friends and, as a safety feature, is slip resistant – even when soaking wet.
Want to revamp an old concrete pool deck or patio?
There are plenty of concrete coatings on the market today that allow you to add simple or ornate overlays to your current cement pool deck or patio. This is a much more affordable option, as you will not have to demo your old concrete, then have a new concrete slab poured and, worst of all, wait for it to dry. Sunstamp, from SUNDEK of Washington, is an innovative concrete product, which allows you to give your old concrete a makeover with decorative overlays, such as stenciling or staining. To finish your concrete masterpiece, apply SUNDEK’s Finish Coat, which contains a non-porous acrylic component that keeps mildew an algae from soaking into your pool and patio surface.
So there you have it. If you plan to add a pool deck or patio onto your existing property, consider using decorative concrete as the building material. It’s affordable, completely customizable, safe when property coated, and will wow your friends and family.
