What exactly is pool deck resurfacing? It is the process of applying an overlay product to a deck, patio, driveway, or another concrete surface. The overlay – usually a thin layer of polymer resins, sand, cement, or other material – strengthens, repairs, and updates the look of the concrete surface.

Coating options and materials for your residential or commercial pool deck
When it comes to pool deck coating materials and colors, you have many options. The following is a brief overview of popular resurfacing additives we use or have access to for your project:
Stamped overlay: This is an intriguing option because it not only fixes damage but also adds a decorative look. We can make your drab looking concrete look like brick, natural stone, or wood. The initial install is more expensive than many alternatives, but it’s durability is more cost effective long term.
Epoxy pebble: This resurfacing product is made up of epoxy and decorative pebbles. You can mix and match color combinations for a seamless look.
Rubber coating: A liquid rubber layer, seen often at children’s playgrounds, can easily be applied over your pool deck surface. The coating is soft and comes in many colors.
Spray texture: This popular choice, also known as a cook deck, is safe, comfortable, and ideal for bare feet. It can be applied with custom colors and effects for a personalized look.
Our skilled and experienced experts can help you choose the best resurfacing product for your budget, needs, and style. Most of today’s overlay materials serve to improve appearance, slip resistance, performance, and bonding ability with the current concrete.
Some resurfacing coatings may also protect surfaces from salt damage, UV exposure, pool chemicals, abrasion, and cold conditions that cause freezing and thawing.
Cost to resurface a pool deck or patio
Resurfacing a pool deck is almost always cheaper than tearing out existing concrete and replacing it. The rate for basic resurfacing is $3 to $5 per square feet. A new poured surface will cost $7 to $10 per square foot and doesn’t include decorative components. With customization, the price will likely increase.
