Pool Decks

Southern Poolscapes takes pride in providing expert installation of pool decks, offering concrete pavers as a popular and versatile decking option for all styles of inground swimming pools, including gunite, fiberglass, and vinyl pools. While decorative concrete may seem like a cost-effective choice, concrete pavers offer multiple advantages, including enhanced durability and long-lasting appeal. Our installation adheres to the Interlocking Concrete Paving Institute (ICPI) recommended practices, ensuring a flawless and enduring decking solution.

The Southern Poolscapes Difference: A Strong Foundation

To prevent potential issues, we take the essential step of installing concrete pavers with a minimum of four inches of compacted limestone base and one inch of bedding sand. The base is paramount for the longevity of your installation, providing a stable foundation that we perfect every time. The concrete paver is then laid on top of the limestone base, acting as a durable wear surface rather than a mere substitute for a foundation.

Gunite Pool Decks: Seamless Integration

At Southern Poolscapes, we understand the significance of the transition from waterline tile to decking in gunite pool construction. Unlike some pool contractors who bring in specialists for decking, we excel in both trades, maintaining full control of the process and adhering to schedules. This allows us to suggest subtle customizations that cater to our customers’ preferences, ensuring a seamless and personalized pool deck.

Timeless Elegance with Travertine Pavers & Coping

Imagine a swimming pool deck adorned with timeless natural stone that exudes elegance and maintains its luster. Travertine pavers offer this exquisite option, growing increasingly popular, especially for pool surrounds. While they may come at a slightly higher cost than concrete pavers, the aesthetic benefits and classic stone look make travertine pavers an excellent choice for your pool deck.

Decorative Concrete Decking: Beauty with a Caution

While decorative concrete can be stunning when executed correctly, it requires periodic maintenance and resealing over time. Although it holds up well against the rigors around a pool, the chief concern with concrete is its longevity. Despite precautions, cracks may develop and propagate through the material over time due to vacillating hydrostatic pressure in the ground. Though temperature variations may not be a major concern in our region, this heaving effect under the ground can affect any fixed material. Decorative concrete can still be an attractive and budget-friendly choice, but it’s essential to be aware of potential longevity issues.
