Four Before And After Pool Deck Makeovers You Need To See

This is the time of year when pool decks take center stage with pool owners. Either you’re loving your pool and its stylish deck or you’re lamenting the shape it’s in now that summer is here and it’s not very user-friendly. If your concrete pool deck is too ugly or damaged to be a major summer attraction at your house,  Concrete Craft®  can help you transform it with one of our decorative concrete solutions that can quickly transform pool decks so that there is still plenty of time to enjoy the summer!

Repair, restore, and renew any concrete pool deck

Concrete Craft has a full line of resurfacing products that can save a damaged pool deck, so you don’t even have to think about demo and replacement. All our MasterProTM repair and restoration systems are quicker, less messy, and more budget-friendly than replacing bad concrete since our decorative concrete pool overlays go over your existing pool deck. One of the best ways to demonstrate what we can do for a pool deck gone wrong is with before-and-after pictures, so here are four pool deck makeovers you have to see to believe!

Repair severe damage with RestoreKoat by Concrete CraftTM

Pool decks take a beating from constant water and year-round weather exposure. A concrete pool deck can develop deep cracks, eroded surface, discoloration from pool chemicals, and spotty repair patches over the years, as evidenced in the before picture below. It certainly doesn’t look like an “easy fix,” but our  RestoreKoat repair mortar can cover all that damage with a one-coat overlay that creates the look of new concrete. The seamless surface has built-in strength that is resistant to abrasion, impact, pool chemicals, food and drink spills, lotions and oils, and weather extremes. It’s the last pool deck repair and resurfacing you’ll ever need for endless summers of fun.

  • Fast curing time has your pool back in service in a matter of a few days.
  • The slip-resistant surface is an added safety feature around water.
  • Bring on the tables, umbrellas, lounge chairs, and potted plants without the worry of damage to the durable surface.

Resurface with a natural stone river rock overlay

PebbleKoat by Concrete CraftTM is another one-coat overlay that can fill in cracks and level out uneven areas, creating a beautiful, real stone coating for your pool deck. The 100% natural river rock in an exclusive non-epoxy-based concrete overlay comes in a range of colors from the lightest color blend, Frost, to a dark Espresso, so you’ll be able to complement any landscape design. Use more than one color to create patterns and borders for a one-of-a-kind pool deck. PebbleKoat is all-weather resistant, unaffected by stains, spills, UV light, and pool chemicals that can discolor actual stone or bare concrete.

  • Existing concrete is cleaned and prepped to ensure permanent adhesion of the overlay.
  • Banish the “well-used-pool-deck” look with a river rock overlay that creates an even surface of beautiful stone.
  • The surface is easy to keep clean without the need for harsh concrete cleaners, just hose it off or scrub stubborn dirt with a push broom and mild detergent like Dawn dish soap.

Get creative with decorative stamped concrete overlays

If you want to make a unique design statement with your pool deck makeover, a resurfaced concrete overlay is your answer.  Resurfaced concrete overlays can be stained for vibrant color and stamped or imprinted with faux stone designs like flagstone, cobblestone, and slate textures. One concrete overlay can accommodate more than one-style finish, such as smooth borders around a faux stone pattern or stone borders around stained concrete. Minor imperfections like discoloration, chips, and cracks on the concrete patio below are completely hidden with a fresh concrete surface that was hand-cut and custom-stained for an authentic-looking flagstone finish.

  • Grout lines are carved into the design so they will never crumble and deteriorate like real grout and stone.
  • Our extensive styles, patterns, and concrete stain colors mean unlimited design potential.
  • Concrete slabs of different colors, such as new and old concrete, can be unified with a decorative concrete overlay that ties it all together with one design.

Revive a faded, worn finish

Sometimes all a concrete pool deck needs is a cosmetic update for a surface that has lost its color and shine. For concrete with a stamped pattern that is intact, but the finish is worn away,  RenewKoat by Concrete CraftTM can restore the surface to its original beauty and make it better than new with an industry-tough, durable finish. RenewKoat is a rolled-on cementitious overlay that restores color and shine without impacting the character of the original design. You can revive the original color or choose something completely different from our 10 standard RenewKoat colors.
