Durability and Longevity

Both durability and longevity are important when you are considering which pool deck surface will work for you. The solution is research. With lots of different pool surface options, spend some time researching reliable sources to learn more about how durable the surfaces are.  Reliable sources can be found on the internet, and amongst friends who have experience and knowledge in this area. You can also read articles on our website for more information. A key factor with durability is where you live. It is very important to consider your environment when it comes to durability. Do you live in a desert? Consider a pool deck surface that will withstand extreme heat and dryness. Do you live in a wet climate? Consider how moisture can negatively impact some pool deck surfaces, and what can be done to protect against damage.

Ease of Maintenance

We are all different, and we all have different thresholds for how much time we would like to spend on cleaning our pool deck, and keeping it maintained. Maintenance can include sweeping, washing the surface down, power washing, or gently brushing, all depends on the surface you choose. Take some time to research the average amount of maintenance required for different pool deck surfaces so you can pick the best option for you, from natural stone pavers, to brushed concrete, or acrylic lace.

Luxury, High-end Look and Feel

For some of our customers the more luxurious the pool deck the better. Marbella pavers are a popular high-end choice, closely followed by other natural stone pavers. Other customers are less interested in luxury and more interested in design, favoring a modern concrete look. It is a lot of fun researching the different pool deck options available so you can find the perfect look for you.

Complimenting the design of your home

Last but not least, another key decision making factor is how well the pool deck surface fits with the overall architecture and style of your home and landscaping. Modern architecture can work really well with the clean lines of a concrete pool deck, and a southwest style adobe home can be perfectly complemented by the warm natural tones of a travertine paver pool deck.
