Does Your Pool Deck Need a Makeover?

Long days by the pool are a wonderful way to relax. You can enjoy the view of the blue sky, the cool breeze coming off the water on your pool and take in your surroundings. It also gives you time to notice all the wear and tear that your pool deck has endured over the years. Hot sun, chlorinated water and countless feet may have taken their toll, leaving your pool looking slightly haggard. Is it time for a makeover of your pool deck?

Cracks, chips and faded pool deck materials can detract from the beauty of your pool area. But it is not just aesthetics that you should worry about. Wear can lead to drainage issues, slippery spots and other risky problems that can cause injury. Plus, an old pool deck can devalue your home, a major concern if you plan on selling in the future.

Natural Stone Pool Deck Makeovers

If you are noticing your pool deck needs a makeover, consider the benefits of a natural stone paver pool deck. Stone pavers made from tumbled travertine or marble make excellent pool decks that add value to your home with several benefits, including:

  • Natural, classic beauty
  • Cool surface for bare feet
  • Fade resistance
  • Excellent drainage capabilities
  • Unique design possibilities

In addition, tumbled stone pavers are durable and easy to maintain. They can easily be individually repaired or replaced and take very little to keep them looking beautiful for many years to come.

If it is time for a pool deck makeover at your home, call your local natural stone paver that offers pool deck construction to learn more about the benefits of a marble or travertine pool deck.

Enjoying an Al Fresco Dinner at Your Home

You can create an outdoor dining area; better yet, you can cook your meals outdoors too. Here are some ideas to make al fresco dinners a regular occurrence at your home.

Stone Patio
