Having a pool is one of life's greatest privileges. When the hot days come upon us, nothing says relaxation like taking a dip in the pool.
What if you take a look outside and notice that your pool deck is starting to rot, wither, or otherwise come undone? Not only does that not look very good, but it could also be a safety hazard.
Yet replacing your pool deck can be incredibly expensive. Even worse if you just bought the house and are already tying up all your money inside. What do you do then? Why not try restoring it?
Save A Ton Of Money
Pool deck restoration can save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. This goes for just about anything in your home, but your pool deck is no different. When you get a quote from a contractor or look it up yourself, take a look at the numbers between replacing and remodeling. You might be surprised to see how much money you save going with the latter.
For one thing, restoration can be as easy as giving it a top polish or cleaning up the bits in between. Meanwhile, completely replacing it requires you to dig everything up and use all new materials that have to go in. Not only that, but you have to pay for the labor to do this as well. Unless you want to go with a completely different design or material, there's no reason to replace your pool deck over restoring it to one of many beautiful finishes, such as simulated flagstone, or Acrylic Lace Texture.
You probably made the decision to fix up your deck shortly before summer. If you decide to go with the replacement process, you're looking at weeks or maybe even months of work. What if you want to have a pool party? Or more importantly, what if you want to use the deck yourself through the summer? What's the point of having a pool if you can't use it?
Restoration doesn't take anywhere near as long as replacement. With some dedicated time, you can be done in as little as a day depending on what you have to do. Just like that, your deck is ready for the summer.
At the end of the day, you'll go with what's best for your deck. Just keep in mind that restoration is always a choice, and an inexpensive, less time-consuming choice. Either way, enjoy your new deck!
