Is a staycation in your family plans for 2022?

If your concrete pool deck isn’t in top condition, however, it could pose a safety hazard to your family and your guests. Cracks, raised slabs, and chipped edges can cause injuries and stumbles, while a deck that’s dirty and stained from mildew and falling debris can be slippery and, at the very least, unsightly.

Some home improvement stores sell "concrete patching" or "concrete caulking" materials. However, who wants a gray lines of caulk laying on the deck like a snake? And, who wants a patching material that changes the texture and color or the patched area, and that will crack next winter? If concrete cracking is an issue for you, you might want to consider concrete pool deck renewal with RenuKrete Engineered Concrete Flooring (ECF).

Concrete Pool Decks are Victims of Freeze/Thaw Cycles

It’s very apparent that the winter weather in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts (the RenuKrete service area) is much less reliable that it used to be. Where past winter seasons might have a thaw or two during the cold months, now there can be rapid changes as more warmer days are sprinkled among the sub-freezing. Any moisture from rain or snow can work into cracks and then as temperatures drop and rise, the wet ground below can expand and contract, undermining the viability of concrete structures such as your pool deck.

A RenuKrete pool deck before and after the transformation

The RenuKrete ECF process not only restores the structural integrity of your existing concrete pool deck, patio, and walkways, but it transforms drab concrete slabs into the look of natural slate and tile formations in a color palette of your choosing.

Not all concrete resurfacing processes are the same.

If your concrete pool deck is in less than stellar condition, you have several options to choose from to restore it to a safe and aesthetically pleasing structure. RenuKrete ECF uses patented processes and proprietary technology to create a dramatic transformation of your existing concrete deck—without the huge expense of demolition, removal and re-pouring.
