This summer, we have received many inquiries whether a concrete deck around the pool area could be polished?, At first it may sound a bit crazy to think that you could have polished concrete pool deck. After all, it will be slippery and dangerous.
Well, the real answer is YES. Concrete deck can be ground and semi-polished as to retain reasonable anti-slip properties, while still showing aggregate exposed semi-polished concrete deck. In the past 2 years, we have noticed an increase in requests for polished concrete in outdoor settings such as court yards and patios as well as pool decks.
Another popular concrete pool deck transformation is stained concrete, and sealed finish. This is an inexpensive process that involves grinding the pool deck surface with a diamond concrete grinder, and two coats of concrete stain is applied and covered with premium polyurethane coating. This process enriches any pool deck with natural colour, beautiful appearance, and it protects the concrete pool deck from premature wear or deterioration.
The two pool deck applications mentioned, are compatible with both indoor or outdoor concrete floor slabs.
