Pool Deck Materials and Their Advantages
Various materials can be used when building pool decks. However, the final choice will always depend on our client’s preferences. Below are the common pool deck materials and their characteristics:
- Bricks – They remained viable materials for a pool deck, although they are not as popular as they were in the past decades. Bricks provide a classic and vintage look, especially to homes with brick exteriors. It is important, however, to choose non-slippery types of bricks to make them appropriate for use beside a pool.
- Natural Stones – The great thing about natural stones is that they come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. These are fade-resistant and require minimum maintenance because of their durability.
- Tiles The types used in pool decks are those with a matte finish. These come in a wide array of designs and are easy to install. These, however, may require frequent re-grouting and tile replacement.
- Concrete Pavers – A popular choice in most outdoor surfaces, concrete pavers are great materials for any pool deck.
Why You Should Choose Concrete Pavers for Pool Decks
Concrete pavers are ideal materials for any outdoor area, be it for patios, driveways, or even walkways. This is one of the reasons why we recommend these materials for pool decks. They have also gained popularity among residential and commercial property owners because of their characteristics.
Pavers, like the ones from Belgard, come in various colors. No matter what type of look or color scheme you have in mind, there is one that will meet your preferences. If there is a certain color or blend you specifically want, it can be easily mixed into pavers for optimum customization. They also come in various sizes and shapes so incorporating a design theme into your pool deck is easy.
Concrete pavers are highly durable and are resistant to the normal wear and tear. They are also resistant to climate and temperature changes, making them a great choice for pool decks.
