Trust Cardinal Concrete Coatings With Your Pool Deck Coatings

Do you ever feel like you’re swimming in home improvement projects? After you’ve unclogged the gutters, changed the HVAC filters, and grappled with your garden, you might want to take a  closer look at your pool deck coatings. Chances are, you have an old Kool Deck laid down or some fading tiles. Refinishing or replacing your pool deck paint is a bit too much to take on yourself, but Cardinal Concrete Coatings has you covered.

Our helpful team is licensed and bonded and we back every project with a 50-year written warranty. Even the most dedicated DIYers need to throw in the towel once in a while and contact the professionals.

Common Pool Decking Problems

If you stroll around the perimeter of your pool, you’re likely to see two things: splitting and fading. The problem with uneven or split deck coating is that it can cause accidents and attract tenacious mold.

Other common pool decking issues include:

You may think that wear and tear are inevitable, but we’ve got good news. We guarantee our polyaspartic deck coating for 50 years because it’s four times stronger than epoxy, one of the most common deck sealants.

Polyaspartic coatings are also stronger (and safer) than Kool Decks because they don’t contain asbestos. Yes, you read that correctly. You would need to have a highly trained professional remove a Kool Deck from your backyard.

Pool Deck Options for Scorching Desert Summers

If your pool deck is more than 10 years old, it may already be a hazard. Every year, more than 150,000 accidents occur near swimming pools, often due to slippery or cracked pool decks. The following is a little more information about types of pool deck coatings. We highly recommend cost-effective polyaspartic coating for the reasons you’ll see below.

Polyaspartic vs Kool Deck

As we mentioned before, Kool Deck has asbestos components and could be quite costly to remove properly. It’s relatively inexpensive at $4 per square foot but tends to fade and crack within a few years. The real issue with Kool Deck is longevity. It only lasts for 10 years on average and can bring down the value of a home faster than your kids can cannonball into the pool.

Polyaspartic deck coating, on the other hand, will easily endure for 50 years or longer and has great ROI, or return on investment. If you have Cardinal Concrete Coatings install a polyaspartic deck coating, you may also want to use it in your:

We may be able to offer you a discount for booking several projects at once. In general, polyaspartic coating is much easier to clean and maintain than any of the materials we’ll mention here. There’s no odor during installation and it’s safe to have around children, seniors, and pets.

Polyaspartic vs Epoxy

Epoxy is a popular sealant, but the industry is moving away from it for a few reasons. First, epoxy isn’t as strong as polyaspartic coatings. It’s only one-fourth as strong and doesn’t stand up to punishing summer heat. Epoxy costs between $3 and $7 per square foot but isn’t as good a deal as it seems. Shockingly, epoxy coverings only last two to three years. Cracks in aging epoxy can attract bugs, weeds, or even reptiles. Even if you do opt for epoxy, you’ll need to wait up to five days for it to cure, or set. If you have dogs or small children who like to roam outside, you could be courting disaster if you can’t block off your entire pool deck.

Polyaspartic coatings, on the other hand, set in just a few hours. You can have the treatment done on a Friday and get back to swimming the very next day.

Polyaspartic vs Tile

The last option we’ll discuss here is pool deck tile. The main problem with tiles or pavers is that they can shift very easily. If your pool is a high-traffic area, you may be loosening the grout just by walking and sitting on your tiles. Tiling comes in at about the same price as polyaspartic coating—between $5 and $7 per square foot. It does look nice but sometimes has a generic feel.

Tiles also seem to be magnets for breakage and water damage. If you buy tiles, you need to make sure to buy extra ones because you may have a terrible time trying to match them later on. On the other hand, Cardinal Concrete Coatings can create custom colors to match your home or pool. Some of our most popular colors are:

If those colors aren’t exactly what you’re looking for, let us know. We will develop the perfect color with you and keep it on file. You never need to worry about tracking down tiles again.
