Materials such as acrylic, natural stone, or stamped concrete for example. Ultimately, the times when it is truly appropriate to paint a pool deck are very limited.

The surface temperature of your future pool deck is an especially important factor to consider when designing a pool deck in states like Arizona and Texas, where temperatures soar in the summer months when you want to be in your pool every day relaxing on your comfortable pool deck.
