Concrete is a popular material both for indoor and outdoor use. As a pool deck, it isn’t the most attractive type which is why some people top it off with other materials like tile or stone. It can be used as it is but concrete tends to absorb anything and is quite slippery when wet. If you love how versatile and durable it is but want something more pleasing and more slip-resistant, there is a practical solution.
Spray knockdown texture is a decorative coating that can be installed on existing concrete pool decks to enhance its form and function. Its unique spray-down system creates a non-skid system that is comfortable to walk on even with bare feet. This is similar to stucco but the texture is more subtle. Aside from pool decks, this coating can also be used on other outdoor surfaces like patios, driveways, sidewalks, walkways, front entryways, and more.
Noteworthy Features of a Spray Knockdown Finish
We are confident that you won’t have any regrets choosing a spray-down concrete as pool deck resurfacing option for improving or updating a pool decking. If you are still unsure, here are notable features that should help you with your decision:
- The texture created by the spray texture makes the resurfaced patios, pool decks, and driveways a lot safer to walk on. The slip-resistant surface, however, is not too rough on bare feet.
- This isn’t called a cool deck coating for nothing. A spray knockdown texture has the ability to maintain a cool temperature even after it has been sitting under the sun for hours. The textured surface creates air pockets that allow cool air to circulate. Also, the coating is quite effective in reflecting heat back instead of absorbing it, as concrete often does.
- Resurfacing with an acrylic concrete coating is a more affordable option than adding high-end paving materials or replacing the entire slab altogether. Costs may vary based on the size of the job, the extent of surface preparation required, and any other additional services added, like staining.
- A spray texture coating comes in a variety of colors but it can be customized further with concrete stains. Other custom add-ons include scoring, engraving, multiple colors, and more.
