<![CDATA[Considering what color to use on your San Antonio pool deck?]]>Wed, 13 Jul 2016 07:18:52 GMThttp://pooldecksanantonio.com/1/post/2016/07/considering-what-color-to-use-on-your-san-antonio-pool-deck.htmlPicture
Deciding on what color of pool decking finish or color are very important decisions that will make a difference in the future lifetime and usability of the deck. Most people, while deciding what color of stain to use on their concrete pool deck or cool deck, are considering how to color match or color coordinate the look and feel that they are going for. However, one of the things that is least considered is how comfortable you may feel walking on a particular texture or looking at the surface around the pool. 

Most people, buy in large, stain the concrete decking as opposed to having a continuous color added into the concrete. Colors that are typically added into concrete pool decking are then stamped or stenciled.  If you are a DIY'er you may consider consulting a professional pool decking company in San Antonio.

Therefore, it is important to consider the pool deck color, not just for aesthetic and color- coordinating reasons, but because the reflective qualities of concrete can enhance one's experience or take away from one's experience. A light color around the pool will in some ways mimic a natural setting like a beach or a water setting that you might enjoy. One unique or dramatic way of creating a unique effect is by creating this Roman-style asked look and feel. Typically it is a dark border surrounded by a lighter monochromatic color. I personally enjoy this particular look. When considering the color of stain that you want to use on your pool decking resurfacing or finishing project consider lighter colors to be ones that will last longer and give a more natural look and feel. 

If you use a darker color it can give a beautiful dramatic look that you can enjoy as well. Just know that the darker colors that you use in stains will attract more heat.  If that is the effect or desired look I certainly would not try to sway one's thoughts. Hopefully this San Antonio pool deck blog, dedicated to resurfacing pools, will help answer some questions and possibly create some new ones.

<![CDATA[Salt Water Pool Deck Damage & Repair for Cool Decking in San Antonio]]>Thu, 23 Jun 2016 05:28:54 GMThttp://pooldecksanantonio.com/1/post/2016/06/salt-water-pool-deck-damage-repair-for-cool-decking-in-san-antonio.htmlPicture
One trending pool style and design in the San Antonio area that has become extremely popular over the last five years has been the salt water pool. The salt water pool has been something that has been known to be beneficial to one's body for several years. 

Seemingly extremely beneficial to one's health, it has been a curse to concrete decks everywhere.  When it comes to keeping a very smooth finish and clean look on your concrete surface, typically there is a type of varnish that is used to seal the concrete deck. 

Although the San Antonio area luckily does not have snow like the Midwest or other areas of the country, the salt water pool has had its own corroding effects that look very much like the roads throughout the North parts of the United States. Typically any concrete pool decking over time will require some type of maintenance. However with the newer style salt water pools we have seen a large number of pool deck resurfacing projects spike.

 One consideration that we have suggested to our customers that have considered salt water pools has been to create a pool decking ring around their pool with some type of high-end vinyl product. By creating pool deck ring around their pool, with either a high-end vinyl product or perhaps even a natural stone (travertine stone, slate, textured slate, flagstone decking, cantera stone and marbella stone),  they will protect the stamped styled and or colored concrete decking (or cool deck, kool deck) that should be offset by at least three feet. Protecting it from the splashing and the natural dripping that comes off one's body from the salt water pool can surely help mitigate some of the corrosion. These simple suggestions can really truly help you keep a more beautiful backyard sanctuary. Consider designing your saltwater pool smartly and save money in the end.

<![CDATA[Pool Deck Resurfacing San Antonio TX - DIY]]>Thu, 16 Jun 2016 07:56:46 GMThttp://pooldecksanantonio.com/1/post/2016/06/pool-deck-resurfacing-san-antonio-tx-diy.htmlAll the time we get phone calls from people that are do-it-yourselfers that enjoy doing several projects around their home. With YouTube On The Rise and all of the information that's out there it's a do-it-yourselfers dreamland. 

 Or is it?

The truth is with there being a lot of information there is the opportunity for information to be misconstrued or incorrect. Other than just being information that is incorrect it could also just be information that is not completely whole or missing important steps in the process that created better outcome. 

What are the questions that we have been asked time and again is what special preparations need to be made before resurfacing a concrete deck around a pool? 

The very basic truth to anything in a project is cleanliness is Next to Godliness. 

Preparing the concrete pool decking around a swimming pool is absolutely essential in the final outcome. In fact if you've ever watched a painter work they usually spend more time taking off and doing prep work than what the actual job takes time to do. 

Keep that in mind as you prepare your pool decking for a refinishing. When refinishing we suggest that you take a very good look in inventory of the condition of the concrete. If the condition of the concrete has elapsed its lifetime you may want to consider not refinishing and completely tearing out and replacing. 

Again however if you are a do-it- yourself-er and have a concrete deck that just simply needs a resurfacing cleaning it with a power washer is your first step. 

By cleaning off any flaking or any old surfacing corrosion you prepare a surface that is completely clean and clear. This will give the resurfacing agents the ability to adhere with more longevity. Ideally creating a longer finish that you will have less maintenance to do. 

So again to recap make sure that cleaning is a priority. In some cases using types of brushes to clear off any flaking or debris areas would be a very good idea. 

The other consideration is to consider the type of textured you're dealing with. In this particular case I've attached a photograph of some beautiful natural wood concrete stamp surface around a pool in San Antonio.

By just looking at it it looks exactly like what. The concrete stamp has created small grooves that need to be cleaned extremely well with a power washer. If you had a regular concrete surface that was smooth this preparation could be much quicker and more efficient. 

Consider the type of concrete deck that you have and consider your cleaning time to be more with things that have depth and texture like this attached picture.

Aside from the preparation and cleaning that must be done when you get ready to prepare the re-taining agent or a top coat clear coat you must make sure you apply it evenly. If it is not applied evenly you will have a completely different  look that you might not be happy with. After you have cleaned your surface typically most people apply another coat of stain just like if you had a house that was good and needed to be re-stained or repainted.

By taking the necessary steps you will end up with what you want. Do-it-yourself-ers have done a great job at giving excellent information. However, it is important that if you're looking for a particular look or feel for a pool deck stain or refinishing talking to a professional is always the best advice that I can give.

A professional pool decking contractor can give you the exact finish that you love and desire from acrylic lace and stamp pattern, textured surfaces, new pool deck construction with pavers and stone, slate, flagstone decking, kool deck, cantera stone, marbella stone, travertine stone, flagstone, slate, textured slate.
