As the weather starts to warm up you may be sitting outside checking out your pool deck, and noticing the cracks and damage that need attention. It is natural for any pool deck to display wear and tear over the years. Proper and regular maintenance can minimize this but eventually most pool decks require a little more attention and perhaps a new coating.

There are several pool deck coating options and it makes sense to do your research before deciding which one will work for you, your pool deck, and your budget. To help you out we have compiled below a list of three of the most popular pool deck coating options. Whichever you choose, the Imagine Architectural team brings experience, artisan skills and exceptional customer service to make sure that the finished product exceeds your expectations. (more…)

When homeowners are designing their new pool or contemplating an upgrade to an existing pool deck it is essential to consider ways to keep the surface of the pool decking at a low and comfortable temperature.
