Give Your Backyard New Life This Summer with a Pool Deck Overlay

Give Your Backyard New Life This Summer with a Pool Deck Overlay

An unsightly pool deck affects the look of your entire backyard. Not only does it make the pool look old and worn, but also takes away from all adjacent patios, decks, and landscaping. A new pool deck will give your backyard a new life, and make your pool look new again. Homeowners have several options and styles to choose from for their new pool deck.

An outright replacement is an option for a pool deck in disrepair. This comes with the task of ripping the old pool deck out, excavating, and replacing with new concrete. This is a costly undertaking and comes with the risk of damaging the pool itself. Many homeowners opt to leave their pool deck as is when faced with the cost of a complete replacement. A pool deck overlay is a much more cost efficient method that restores the integrity and beauty of your pool deck.

An overlay utilizes your existing pool deck as a base, eliminating the need of removing the concrete. This alone saves the owner a lot of money and time during the project. The overlay uses Carvestone, which is a concrete like material made from crushed limestone and quartz, offering a harder surface that is resistant to chipping. The process involves etching your current pool deck, applying primer, and then the Carvestone product. The beauty of this product is that the owner chooses the color and pattern so that it compliments their current landscaping. A variety of stone patterns and colors allow you to make your pool deck unique and stylish.

If you would like more information on giving your pool area a new look, or fix a pool deck in disrepair please contact us.

Are Overlays on Driveways an Alternative to Re-Pouring?

Are Overlays on Driveways an Alternative to Re-Pouring?

 

Driveways have to stand up to a lot of punishment. In addition to constant exposure to wind and rain, sun and snow, heat and cold, they’re constantly being rolled over by multi-ton vehicles, used as hosting areas for basketball games, and dozens of other activities. With all of that going on it’s no surprise that your driveway can start looking a little rough around the edges after a few years.

While you always have the option to tear up your driveway and re-pour it, that’s an expensive proposal. In addition to being expensive, though, re-pouring a driveway is inconvenient. The weather has to cooperate, and the slabs have to set just right. Not only that but it can take days if you want to do it right. It’s not an easy task.

Fortunately there’s another option if you want to invigorate your driveway; adding a concrete overlay.

 

 

What is a Concrete Overlay?

A concrete overlay is a skin that goes on over existing concrete. These overlays come in a variety of shapes, sizes, designs, and colors, and they cover up and protect the concrete underneath. These overlays can provide extra grip, repel water, or just update the look. Not only that, but overlay on driveways is significantly cheaper than re-pouring the concrete.

For More Than Just Driveways

While concrete overlays are ideal for people who want to give their driveways a face lift while providing it with a bit of added protection, they’re also a great solution for other parts of your home as well. Concrete patios that could use some spicing up are good candidates for concrete overlays, but so are areas around in-ground pools where a water-resistant covering might be just the thing you need.

If you’d like to talk to a professional about concrete overlays for your driveway, or really any part of your home, all you have to do is contact us today!

Schedule a Pool Deck Overlay in Winter to Have it Ready to Enjoy in the Spring

Schedule a Pool Deck Overlay in Winter to Have it Ready to Enjoy in the Spring

With Texas temperatures, it is easy to spend most of spring and summer in the pool. Unfortunately, this might not be the best option when your pool deck is showing its age. Instead of letting the deck continue to deteriorate another year, you should invest in a pool deck overlay to improve the entire area. Ideally, you should get professional assistance during winter to have the pool ready for spring.

Get the Work Done in the Off-season

Although you could certainly spend some time in the pool throughout wintertime, the outside temperature is not always ideal, especially at nighttime. However, spring and summer are the best seasons for pool time, so you should make it a top priority to get the work done in the off-season.

Enjoy Flexible Scheduling

When you make plans to handle the work during winter, you do not have to worry about tight scheduling as professionals will have more time on their hands compared to other seasons. If you want to take care of the project on weekdays, weekends, or when you are on vacation, you can do so with ease.

Avoid the Heavy Rain

It is spring and summer in which Texas receives the most rain, which can lead to postponed projects. However, winter is the season that receives the least amount of rain, so you get to enjoy fewer delays.

If you want to have your pool ready to go as soon as spring arrives, you should at least start making plans for your pool deck overlay. Contact us if you want to learn more about our professional services.
