Taking Concrete Surfaces To A Whole New Level

Pool Deck Clean and ready to Enjoy

Has your pool deck seen better days? With summer fast-approaching, now is the perfect time to do something about it. Fortunately, you can rely on premium maintenance products from Sundek to breathe new life into your pool area. Because of that, there is no reason to live with a dirty dungy pool deck.

Top Product Choices

  • SunKleen – This general-purpose cleaner works incredibly well. Especially for grease or oil spots commonly found around pools due to suntan lotion and cream, SunKleen penetrates and cleans.
  • SunSpot – This highly concentrated solvent is another powerful yet safe degreaser. Made from citrus fruit oils, it too removes oil and grease from decorative concrete surfaces.
  • SunTough – When resurfacing your pool deck with a decorative concrete overlay, this innovative product prepares the concrete surface so that when a professional installer begins the job, the overlay will react and penetrate better. That ensures a beautiful surface that will provide you with many years of enjoyment.

Thanks to these products, keeping your pool area in pristine condition has never been easier.

Cleaning Your Pool Deck

Experts recommend that you hose off the deck and use either a push broom or squeegee to remove as much standing water as possible. Then, as soon as you notice a stain, oil or grease spot, or other surface issues, you can use one of the other products mentioned, followed by rinsing well.

Whether you are dealing with oil, chemicals, shoe marks, food or beverage stains, or even tree sap, you have viable options for tackling the problem. In no time, you can open your pool for the summer and keep it in perfect condition throughout the season. If you handle the cleaning of the pool deck, be sure to pay attention to the instructions of the product you use.

Concrete Pool Deck Resurfacing

If you have a swimming pool in your backyard and enjoy hosting family get-togethers, throwing weekend bashes for friends, or perhaps entertaining clients on occasion, you want your deck to look perfect. However, when walking outside, you notice that it has faded and discolored in areas, you see small imperfections, and overall, it needs a facelift. Fortunately, you can get ready for next summer with pool deck resurfacing.

When resurfacing your pool deck, there are no piles of broken-up concrete, dust floating through the air, or weeks if not months of waiting for workers to finish the job. The reason is that the existing deck should not be ripped out and replaced. Instead, a professional installer can apply a decorative concrete overlay that enhances the current surface or changes the aesthetic entirely. Ultimately, there is no mess, and workers complete the project in days.

You now need to choose the right decorative concrete overlay. For pool resurfacing, Classic Texture is a trusted solution. This acrylic spray-on product is beautiful thanks to a broad range of color choices and design effects. However, it also offers a safer and more comfortable walking surface. For a one-of-a-kind aestheticlook, you can have various aggregate effects added or custom score lines or masonry effects created.

SunStamp is another superior product for pool deck resurfacing and mimics the appearance of natural materials like river rock, cobblestone, wood, brick, slate, flagstone, and more. That combined with beautiful color choices and application techniques make stamped concrete a highly-versatile solution that will wow anyone who comes to visit.

There is also a spray-on acrylic textured product called SunSplash, which produces a gorgeous, safe, durable, and maintenance-friendly surface. If preferred, you can have additives added and design effects created to achieve whatever look you want. Along with being an excellent choice for pool deck resurfacing, you can have this product applied to vertical surfaces such as patio walls, outdoor fireplace surrounds, and more for a cohesive design.

 

Like most people, there is a good chance that you automatically relate epoxy floors to residential and commercial garages. The fact is that while epoxy is the best flooring solution for this type of environment, this decorative coating actually serves many more purposes. In fact, epoxy floors are now one of the top choices for interior surfaces for both home and business owners.

Although epoxy floors can be installed virtually anywhere, they are an excellent option for the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, and outdoor patio. The primary reason is that epoxy is extremely water and moisture resistant. Liquid spills are notorious in all of these spaces. With epoxy, the floor has no damage and cleanup is a breeze.

Being impact resistant is one reason why epoxy floors are so popular in garages. However, if you think about it, things get dropped inside the home as well. When epoxy is used in the kitchen, you never have to worry about scratches or dents caused by dropped dishes, canned food, cooking utensils, and so on. Even when used for an outside patio, this type of floor can withstand all kinds of abuse and still look gorgeous.

Epoxy floors are also resistant to oil, grease, coffee, and even red wine, things that typically cause permanent stains. Because this coating is non-porous, nothing penetrates. In addition, epoxy is capable of withstanding abrasions and even chemicals. No matter where you choose to have epoxy floors installed, you are guaranteed a long-lasting surface that looks amazing.

Whether using SunEpoxy 54 or SunEpoxy 100, the floors are gorgeous. You can stick with varying shades of gray or go with color. For something completely unique, a professional Sundek systems installer can add SunFlex, which are beautiful quartz beads, or SunChips, which are metallic flakes. The size, volume, and color of the additives determine just how much glisten the floor has.

If preferred, epoxy floors can be made slip-resistant. In the bathroom, water spills from the bathtub or shower are never a problem. When installed outside on a patio, rain and snow will not compromise safety. This is also a great coating for the pool deck, again providing people with a safe and comfortable surface to walk on.

Now, if you want epoxy floors in your dining room, hearth room, or foyer, the installer can create a mirror-like finish that is simply stunning. Based on the aesthetic that you want to achieve, epoxy is either rolled or brushed on. After the first coat, colored beads or chips are added, along with slip-resistant additives. Once the final top coat is applied and dried, you will absolutely love your new floor.
