Concrete Refinishing & Resurfacing: Is It Time?

You may be wondering whether it’s time to update the look of your pool deck.

However, refinishing your pool is no simple thing and requires a bit of investment.

Thus, it’s necessary to check the following signs to help you decide:

  1. There is a leak – If you find you need to refill your pool ever so often, there’s a good chance that the pool is damaged or worn out and as a result, is not holding water as well as it used to. A leak isn’t something you can ignore because the damage will not only get worse, you’ll also be spending a lot of money to pay for your water bill.  
  2. The texture is off – Pool surfaces are designed to be rough for safety reasons. However, if you start noticing that it’s becoming progressively rougher it may be time for a refinishing in order to prevent further damage.  
  3. There are stains – Algae, chemical and mineral buildup, and other debris are common sources of staining on a pool’s surface. While stains typically don’t point to a damage that is anything but on the surface, they can detract from the overall visual appeal of your pool area.  

At ALAKA’I, resurfacing is one of our specialties where you can choose from stamped concrete, epoxy resin, and rubber coating to refinish your pool deck. Which material to use depends on your specific needs as well as preference.  

  • Stamped concrete – If you don’t want to go through the trouble of replacing the current surface of your pool deck, stamped concrete is a good option. As the name suggests, this type of resurfacing allows you to apply the material over existing concrete in order to replicate the look and texture of slate, stone, wood, brick, and other surfacing materials.  
  • Epoxy resin – Epoxy resin coatings are specifically designed for concrete patios as well as pool decks. This material is ideal if you are someone who wants something that lasts long, but with a timeless appeal. At ALAKA’I, we mix the resin with other materials so that you not only get the design you want but also to ensure that the surface of your pool deck is slip- and skid-resistant.  
  • Rubber coating – One of the biggest advantages of using a rubber coating for refinishing pool decks is the cost. Therefore, if you want something affordable, rubber coating is a good option since it generally costs half the price of concrete and asphalt. Other important  benefits of using rubber coating are durability as well as safety because not only does it make the surface skid-resistant, the material helps soften the effects of a fall, which can be quite handy if you have kids running around the pool all the time.
