Every year, when the summer pool season nears its end, homeowners and residential property managers with older, cracked or damaged concrete pool decks have to weigh whether their pool deck requires immediate attention or can make it through yet another season. When in doubt, however, it’s better to be certain and look into your options now…before next spring gets here.
Regardless of concrete’s amazing durability, older pool decks withstand a lot of stress over the years. Particularly in the northeast and New England, where repeated freeze and thaw cycles can play havoc with ground stability, leading to shifting and lifting that can cause cracks to develop in the concrete slabs (which will only get bigger over time). Then there are the many deciduous trees in our region which drop their own fruit and seed pods, as well as sticky tree sap and decaying leaves that leave behind unsightly stains. If you’ve been trying to keep up appearances with annual pressure washing that can also add wear and tear, etching and degrading the surface.
If your pool deck suffers from any of these problems, or others such as uneven expansion joints, a process such as Engineered Concrete Flooring can not only restore the integrity of your deck, but beautify it as well.
Engineered Concrete Flooring – The technology behind concrete beautification
RenuKrete® Engineered Concrete Flooring (ECF) is a patented and proprietary process that combines the craftsmanship of European masonry with the technological sophistication of modern-day engineering. RenuKrete ECF transforms worn, stained, cracked and pitted concrete deck surfaces into revitalized natural stone formations like flagstone and slate tiles.
The RenuKrete process is not to be confused with other processes such as concrete overlays, which can crack or peel in just a few years. Rather, ECF is the long-lasting concrete beautification solution that’s crafted from your existing concrete pool deck, eliminating the need for demolition and removal of your deck. Engineered Concrete Flooring not only cuts down on potential damage to your landscaping and the possibility of your in-ground pool wall being compromised by demolition, it leaves a minimal carbon footprint since there are no heavy trucks and digging equipment that need to enter your yard.
RenuKrete ECF – Restoring concrete pool decks throughout the northeast.
RenuKrete has thousands of happy customers throughout New Jersey, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and New York. From single family homes to multi-resident apartment and condo units serving hundreds of families, ECF has brought peace of mind to pool owners and property managers who weren’t sure where to turn.
RenuKrete ECF works with the existing surface because it becomes part of it. Unlike overlays it won’t peel away and become a tripping hazard for family and guests enjoying time beside the pool. And unlike poolside pavers, it won’t become a medium for weeds, sand and moss to get tracked into your pool.
Authentic. RenuKrete maintains the natural texture of your deck and gives it the look and feel of natural stone. The process is also ideal for patios, walkways, and other flat concrete surfaces.
Created from the existing concrete deck. RenuKrete is less taxing on the environment because there’s no demolition or replacement of old concrete. Homeowners save money and minimize carbon output when compared to demolition and replacement.
Not an overlay. It won’t chip and peel away in a few years like overlays can.
More stable than pavers, which can shift and sink over time, particularly when used as decking next to a pool.
Even concrete pool decks that are fractured with cracks and uneven expansion joints can be made to look new as if the wear and tear never existed.
Even neglected and forlorn concrete pool decks can be rejuvenated.
Where concrete decking has deteriorated, cracked and become worn, RenuKrete’s artistic application of ECF miraculously restores the original surface to new beauty. If you’re a new homeowner or about to sell, RenuKrete can bring new life to any concrete pool deck or patio surfaces that have been blemished by years of accumulating dirt and/or neglect, increasing property values and making your pool look like new.
Like most work that happens outdoors in the northeast, RenuKrete is hostage to cold weather in winter when working with concrete is not possible. If your concrete pool deck is overdue for a facelift, however, any time of the year is a good time to contact RenuKrete for an estimate so you can get on the docket and maximize your enjoyment during pool season.
