Concrete coatings or “Cool deck” are concrete overlays that provide several benefits to homeowners, including cooling the surface temperature, chip-resistant , and providing slip resistance. With this option, you choose a solid paint color which creates a uniform look across existing concrete. The “Cool Deck” texture is actually a branded product, but it has become so iconic that “cool decking” is now a common industry term for acrylic overlay system. Traditional “Cool Deck” is considered an inferior product in the industry to the 5-layer system we install today which is stain resistant and no longer contains asbestos.
Cooling the Surface Temperature
One of the main benefits of of our lace “cool deck” is its ability to reduce the surface temperature on those hot summer days. Concrete coatings are designed to keep concrete surfaces cool even in the hottest temperatures to protect feet and paws. This type of coating provides excellent thermal insulation by reflecting sunlight away from the pool area. With this reflective feature, it helps keep your feet cooler while you’re lounging around or swimming in your pool.
Chip Resistant Coating
Another benefit is that cool decks create a chip-resistant finish on top of existing concrete surfaces. Since this type of material has been proven to be more durable than asphalt or other traditional coatings, it allows for greater longevity at lower maintenance costs over time when applied properly by a professional contractor.
Slip Resistant Finish
The non-skid texture helps provide additional traction and reduces slipping accidents due to wet surfaces around pools areas which can lead to serious injury if not taken care of properly. With all of these benefits, it’s no wonder that so many people are choosing to invest in concrete coatings for their outdoor spaces.
Pool deck resurfacing with lace style cool deck, concrete overlay, and stained concrete are all popular options for beautifying your outdoor living space. Pool decks can now be transformed with a new look that will last for years to come. Weather-resistant coatings provide both beauty and protection for outdoor walk surfaces. There is a wide variety of colors and textures available so you can customize your project to perfectly match your home’s aesthetic.
Concrete coatings are incredibly easy to maintain. With regular sweeping, cleaning, or hosing off of dirt and debris, your outdoor space will stay looking beautiful for years with minimal upkeep. This makes concrete coating an ideal choice for pool deck resurfacing and patio-deck renovations.
