Decorative concrete allows you to choose any shape, size, colour, and surface treatment for your deck, including basic broom-finished concrete, exposed aggregate, and imprinted patterns that resemble tile, brick, natural stone, and even wood. You can also mix and combine decorative treatments, such as staining concrete with a stencilled or imprinted border or adding sawcut or engraved designs to a coloured overlay. In addition, your concrete pool deck can be designed to blend in with the outer facade of your house and the surrounding landscape, or it can be the primary focus of your backyard.
Stamped concrete is an excellent alternative for pool decks that resemble natural slate, flagstone, or brick. Stamped concrete resembles actual stone but is easier to install and maintain when tinted with stains or dry-shake colour hardeners. Other creative surface treatments, including exposed aggregate, broom finishes, and borders, can be used with stamped concrete.
