During the summer, you’ll probably be spending a lot of time on the pool deck. Therefore, it’s crucial that the concrete surface is both attractive and safe. At a certain point, it might not meet these standards without professional resurfacing. Here are a few signs it’s time for this project.
How to Tell if Your Concrete Pool Deck Needs Resurfacing
Plenty of activities will spring to life around your pool, from grilling to gardening. If a bit of propane leaks from the grill, or mildew develops under a potted plant, it could leave unsightly stains on the pool deck. To keep your outdoor living area looking clean and inviting, have your discolored concrete resurfaced to create a neat, uniform platform.
After years of chlorine splashes and harsh UV rays, the pool deck may start to deteriorate. In some cases, the top layer will crack, and these rifts will multiply until they resemble the back of an alligator.
If you’ve noticed flaking or chipping across the pool deck, people will be at risk of tripping and falling or stubbing their toes. At this point, it’s time for resurfacing.
3. Slippery Surface
When a concrete pool deck is first installed, it will feature a textured surface with small holes or ridges. Like a tire’s tread, this texture is designed to increase traction and prevent slip and fall accidents around the pool.
Over time, footsteps can erode the texture, leaving a smooth and slippery surface behind. With resurfacing, you can restore the irregularities in the top layer and keep your family and guests safe.
