Why Pool Deck Resurfacing is Probably Your Best Option

Why Pool Deck Resurfacing is Probably Your Best Option

 

If you think that you might need pool deck resurfacing, then you’re probably right. An old, worn out, or faded pool desk is definitely not pleasant to look at, and tearing it down altogether is rather expensive. Your best bet is to just have it resurfaced to easily and affordably bring it back to its original glory. Take a look at why pool deck resurfacing is probably your best option.

Value 

A simple resurfacing of your pool deck is sometimes all it takes to significantly increase the value of your home and your property. You’ll know it’s time to do it when your pool deck really starts to show its age. And even if it’s still in pretty good shape, you may need to have it resurfaced in order to keep up with the changing times and styles. It’s the perfect way to revitalize your pool area and really get the most out of it.

Safer 

Sometimes falls are just inevitable, but if you’re noticing that you or your kids are taking quite a few spills, the problem may very well be due to the surface of your pool deck. Having it resurfaced can completely change the texture of it, thus making it safer for everybody.

More Durable

You can’t control the weather, but you can do what you need to do in order to protect your pool deck from it. A simple coating on top of your resurfaced concrete will effectively seal your deck and protect it from the elements. This will also prevent unnecessary maintenance and damage from occurring.

4 Ways an Outdoor Kitchen Can Improve Your Quality of Life in Austin, Texas

Residents of Austin, Texas are always searching for more ways to enjoy the great weather of the region. Adding an outdoor kitchen to your property offers the chance to turn your backyard into a new living space. Where you can not only relax and enjoy the weather, but also prepare and serve wonderful meals without ever leaving your guests.

An outdoor kitchen gives your backyard that wow factor that transforms an average yard into your dream space.

Family time

Creating an outdoor kitchen offers an ideal place for a family to spend time. It allows for family interaction during meals as well as a place to sit and bond. Families tend to go their separate ways while indoors. An outdoor space has the benefit of having no walls or barriers to separate family members.

Concrete Overlay Solutions to Give Your Backyard A Makeover

Concrete Overlay Solutions to Give Your Backyard A Makeover

 

Concrete overlay is a versatile solution to makeover pavements and give features like patios and paths a more attractive look and feel. The choices of overlay include natural stone finishes and colors to achieve just the look you are looking for. Overlays can also be applied as a finish for new concrete, and as an alternative to more costly materials like natural stone or brick pavers.

 

Concrete Overlay Is More Than a New Finish

The overlay finish of concrete is used for mainly to give pavement surfaces a more attractive look. The process involves applying a layer of a special cement mixture to the surface of pavements and applying realistic textures and colors by hand. Unlike methods like stamped concrete, hand applied concrete layover will give surfaces a realistic looking finish.

Why Using Concrete Overlay is Right for Your Landscaping Design

Many other options for pavement finishes will require you to remove old pavements, but with concrete layover techniques, existing pavements are left in place and a new finish layer is applied to the existing materials. The layover cuts costs, creates a realistic look and gives you more options to finish pavements.

The Many Affordable Pavement Finishes with Concrete Overlay Colors and Textures

With natural stone, pavers and stamped concrete, you are limited to fewer choices when it comes to finishes on the surface. Concrete layover gives you a choice of colors and textures that are applied behind to create the look you want for the pavement surfaces around your landscaping.

Summer will be here before you know it. Warm weather and longer days will sneak in when you aren’t looking. Weekend cookouts and pool parties will become the norm, and many an evening will be spent outside sipping lemonade and watching the sun go down.

No backyard pool is complete without a nice surrounding surface. A beautiful new surface surrounding the water makes for a much prettier and enjoyable backyard landscape. Add some chairs, a grill, and a table for the perfect summertime hangout.

Fire Pit

Everyone loves late summer nights sitting around a fire. Campfire songs and s’mores bring back wonderful childhood memories and create fond new memories too. Custom fire pits built into your deck are an excellent way to add to your outdoor living space, and are a perfect addition to any summer party. Be sure to keep fire wood handy for those impromptu hot dog roasts and you’ll be ready for a summer full of fun.

Covered Patio

Sometimes the summer sun is too hot to handle. During these days, a covered patio is an absolute life saver. A covered patio gives you the ability to spend time outside without sitting in direct sunlight, so you can enjoy the great outdoors without the sunburn and sweating to go with it. Additionally, a covered patio area with a fan blowing is the perfect setting for an afternoon board game on a hot summer day.
