Pool decks - what are they, and why should I have one built on my property
A pool deck is a flat, sturdy surface that surrounds a pool. It is ideal for allowing you to move around the pool safely and for entertaining guests in style. The advantages of having a deck built on your property include:
- The main reason for having pool decks is to provide a safe area around the pool, especially with children who are learning to swim.
- Easier access into the pool – especially when you’re not feeling too flexible or when you have young children who like to dive in headfirst.
- Adding UV protected space around your pool so you can enjoy it all year round without risking a sunburn.
- A flat surface that is sturdy and durable enough for entertaining guests outdoors, either by the pool or nearby – ideal for holding late-night barbeques, dining alfresco, et cetera.
- It also adds value to your home. A home that has a pool is more attractive to potential buyers.
What is the most common problem with pool decking and how do I fix it?
The most common problems we see are cracks; water will get into these cracks and start to soften and warp the decking. These areas must be repaired entirely and waterproof. Another issue with pool decking is changing colour. This usually occurs when the water in the pool has a high level of chlorine which is damaging to the wood.
Cracks should be repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage to the area. Cracks can form with time, but they mustn’t become a safety hazard. There are various ways to tackle cracks in the pool decking, but often it will depend on where they are located or how large they are. You can repair it by filling the crack with resin and sand down to make it smooth. Replace the broken section with a new precast concrete square, sealed with a waterproof membrane.
How often does pool decking need maintenance?
The best time to do preventative maintenance is before winter so that it is completely dry and ready to go once the wet season starts. Decking maintenance should be carried out whenever necessary, such as after winter and when cracks appear in the decking. Pool decking is generally easy to maintain, and this depends on regular cleaning and, if necessary, treatment after weather exposure or staining etc. The wood used for the decking should be checked regularly for damage, and any affected areas need to be replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise, these damaged areas could cause further issues
Types of materials used for pool decking
We offer a variety of materials for your decking to our clients. We use a combination of two or more materials to ensure durability and aesthetics. Pool decking is designed with the following materials: wood, PVC, concrete pavers, aluminium and stainless steel. Wood is the traditional material used for pool decks, but it requires frequent maintenance. Different kinds of woods are used for pool decking, but the best would be the treated softwood, as untreated woods are not suitable for pool areas. The most commonly used are Merbau, rimu and cypress pine. If you are looking for a low-maintenance option, PVC decking is recommended. It is important to choose the suitable material that best suits your lifestyle and budget. It would be best if you balanced your needs with the benefits that different materials offer.
What is the cost for pool decking installation?
The cost of installing a pool deck might be affected by different factors; the size of the pool, the quality or design of the materials chosen, whether or not it is covered by concrete and your geographical location. Our charges for a pool decking installation include a fixed price for a standard stainless steel pool fence installation. We also include frame and skirting boards, so there are no hidden costs.
