What to Consider Before Building or Remodeling Your Pool Deck

A pool deck is a perfect place for summertime parties and barbecues with friends. It can also be a great place to relax or exercise during any time of year. The only problem is, many homeowners don't know how to design an attractive yet functional area that will withstand Florida's intense heat and humidity.

Florida Pavers & Pergolas understands that this can be a tough choice/decision to deal with. That is why we wrote this blog for you! Here are some things you should consider before contracting a pool deck like pool use, materials, and design.

How Do You Use Your Pool?

If it is a primary area for your family where you entertain, you will want a bigger deck to accommodate patio seating for a larger party. If you have younger children then safety measures should be taken for your deck such as adding a net around the pool. Stones and pavers are the clear and obvious choice for most pool-owners due to the vast amount of style/color options available.

Think about how your family currently uses your outdoor space and how you would like to elevate that experience for them.

Materials to Consider

Central Florida is wet, hot, and definitely humid. Wood decking is often avoided for our climate due to our constant rain and sun exposure. Plastic composite is a big favorite for our state but doesn’t last long and does require some extra maintenance such as re-sealing annually. Stone and paver options are the clear favorites for many homeowners.

You should always consider the maintenance of the materials you choose. Wood will often require maintenance and need to be replaced due to rotting, which has made it a less popular choice for Central Florida homeowners. Plastic composites typically require the most maintenance due to the brutal heat. Stone and pavers are gorgeous and “stay new” or hold up much longer than the previously mentioned materials.

Deck Design

Decks come in a variety of shapes and sizes depending on the type of pool you have. You can get an above-ground deck or one that is designed partially underground, with stairs leading up into the pool from below ground level. The current space available for a deck around your pool is also considered for how large the deck can be.

The best way to make the most of your pool deck is by designing it well. You can still have an open and spacious space, with designs that suit whatever size pool you've got! It's not all about big decks - if small ones work for your lifestyle then go ahead because there are many ways in which this outdoor area can come alive as part of what makes up home-fun times spent together chatting on comfortable lounge chairs under the stars while watching kids play.

Every Deck is Different

Pool decks are a big investment and you want to make sure that you get it right. It seems like everyone has an opinion about how your pool deck should look, but there is no one-size-fits-all solution for every family or home. There are many options available when it comes to materials and designs, so we'll help you decide what's best for your budget and lifestyle.
