Concrete doesn’t have to be boring; in fact, this material has so many design options to choose from. Only decorative concrete allows you to choose designs that are almost any size, shape or color. Stick with a classic smooth or brushed finish or switch it up. Concrete can effectively emulate many tile, brick and stone options with the correct finish.
Ground temperatures get pretty hot in the Central Florida area, especially during those summer pool months. While darker materials like brick or tile can retain heat, concrete reflects solar radiation to provide a cooler, more comfortable feel to bare feet.
By upgrading your pool deck, you’re creating a lasting investment that adds value to your home. That’s not all; concrete is one of the more inexpensive options for creating your outdoor hardscape. Materials like flagstone, pavers and bricks have a higher install cost due to the labor involved in placing each individual piece, but concrete can be done smoothly and efficiently by pouring.
Outdoor areas are meant for good times, but those can’t happen if people are slipping and falling. Concrete can be brushed with a finish to create a rough, patterned surface that helps prevent slippage so you and your family can have fun in the sun.
