One of the best ways to make a statement with your new pool or to improve the look of an older one is to install a new pool deck. Pool decking is so important to the overall usefulness of the space, and as such, you need to be careful when considering your options. Metairie Pool and Design can help you by designing a space that takes into consideration what you want out of your pool area, your budget, and your available space. When you contact our pool contractors, you will not be sorry as we walk you through the process step by step.
One of the most common type of pool desking is poured concrete because of its durability and versatility. A poured concrete deck is a cost-effective pool decking option, and because it can be colored, shaped, stamped, and scored in all different kinds of ways, clients can get the individualized design they want. Concrete does have a tendency to heat up in the summer months which is one drawback to using this type of decking in Southeast Louisiana.
Other options include wood and brick pool decks. Wood is a beautiful natural material and is excellent for decking, but the material must be sealed yearly and can break apart more easily than other types of decks. For clients who do not want the upkeep, a wood deck may not be the way to go. Brick decking is quite beautiful as well and can give a home’s outside area some classic charm. But similar to concrete, bricks can become very hot in the summer months, and the material can be expensive to lay and may become even over time.
Many clients in the Metairie area install stone tile decks like limestone, travertine, or sandstone because they create a very polished, modern look, and the tiles do not heat up in the sun the way that concrete and stone does. In particular, travertine tiles have become a top choice for pool decking because they are both practical and beautiful, and they come in a wide range of colors, sizes, and designs. Because travertine is naturally porous, it decreases the water around the pool area so that your guests are less likely to slip. It also maintains its color and variation over its lifespan. Your backyard will feel very polished when you decide to install travertine pool decking.
