Are you tired of sweating through the hot summer and spring months? Want a fun, stylish, and safe way to cool down? Installing a pool is the perfect solution. But, before you start planning your dream pool and its accompanying deck here’s what you should consider first:

Budget 

The first thing to consider is your budget. There is a multitude of decking materials available for your pool deck, but some are more expensive than others. Poured concrete pool decking tends to be the most popular and affordable material. Concrete can be stamped or broomed for a beautiful finish. Other affordable pool decking material options include:

  • Composite wood
  • Stone
  • Tile 

Purpose

What will be the primary purpose of your new pool? Will it be used by kids, or will it be more of an architectural feature? Will you be using it frequently? Considering the primary purpose for your pool will help determine the right material for your deck. For example, if you believe the pool will be used frequently and that the pool deck will constantly come into contact with water, you’ll want a decking material that is durable and isn’t prone to rot. 

Safety Features

If you have young children or pets living in your home, you’ll want to consider adding safety features to your pool deck. While every area has its unique local safety codes, you may want to take some additional safety precautions. You may want to consider enclosing or fencing off the pool or installing alarms that alert you when anything enters the water. You can never be too careful. 

Long Term Costs

When it comes to pool decking, it’s not a case of “setting it” and “forgetting it”. Pool decks require regular maintenance to uphold their appearance and integrity. How much maintenance your pool deck requires will depend on the type of material you use to construct the pool deck. If you don’t want to spend a lot of time and money maintaining your pool deck, opt for a decking material that requires minimal maintenance.
