The First Step to Pool Deck Resurfacing
Understanding the existing surface. If we are able to repair the existing surface to the point where we are comfortable with the integrity of the concrete, we can make this a quick job. The next step is to decide on the style and design of the pool deck that you are looking for.
Prepping the Pool decks Surface
To prepare the pool deck for a media blast, we remove all ladders, lights, and drain covers. We take the proper safety precautions to ensure the safety of your home and our crew.
Remove Surface Layers
To remove the exterior layers on the pool decks surface, the existing surface will require a media blast and potentially a grinding with diamond blades. The blast consists of sand or crushed glass that will remove the surface layers of the pool deck from the pressurized abrasion. This is especially useful if their is paint that is peeling on the pool deck. Concrete is water-resistant rather than waterproof. With age, concrete becomes more porous — and even less water-resistant. Like a sponge, water can absorb into the concrete structure during its later stages.
It is common for pool decks to crack and become dangerous or even slippery after many years if the surface is coated appropriately. That’s why we do the job right the first time and it’s beneficial to refinish your pool decks surface with element resistant coatings regardless of how bad it is right now.
