Concrete, tile, wood, stone, brick, and others make up the available options, but concrete offers the most freedom in terms of color, texture, and pattern. It is not only the most versatile material but also the most affordable and low maintenance surface. Have a look at the pool decks and patios we do.

Pool Decks

When designing or building pool decks, be aware that they have a unique set of performance requirements compared to a typical patio. Materials near pools have to resist constant water exposure and the harsh chemicals that come with pool water. You also need to consider who will be walking around the pool deck, so that they are easy on bare feet, slip-resistant, and splinter-free. Concrete is the best choice for pool decks due to its ability to withstand constant exposure to water, splinter-proof and slip-proof properties, and it is easy on bare feet. It is also the cheapest and most flexible material to design to your unique personality. We can make your pool deck blend with your home’s exterior or landscape, or make it a stunning, eye-catching feature in your backyard.
