Your pool deck is a popular backdrop for family and friends to socialize and enjoy Southern California’s wonderful climate. This cherished oasis gets even more use as hot, dry summers prevail. Whether you are entertaining, relaxing, sunbathing or watching young children swim in the pool, the deck experiences significant foot traffic. You must perform regular maintenance because the deck is continually exposed to the elements, chlorine, salt and chemicals, which cause the surface to deteriorate. The concrete may chip, crack and flake or lose its non-slip coating, which is a major risk for serious injuries. It also diminishes the appearance of your investment. You can prevent these problems by resealing your decking on an annual basis. In some situations, it may be necessary to perform a procedure known as pool deck resurfacing. This will ensure that your deck is safe and visually appealing.
