6 Popular Pool Decking Options

If you are considering remodeling your pool decking or planning a new pool, there are many choices for pool deck materials. The pool deck is an extension of your patio or outdoor living space and should reflect your style. However, there is more to consider than just appearance when it comes to pool decking. Here are six popular choices for pool decking and the benefits of each.

  1. Concrete. The standard for pool decking is concrete, a safe and affordable option. For the budget-conscious, this can be the best choice but it is more costly to repair and lacks aesthetic appeal.
  2. Pavers. A stylish option with easy maintenance and repairs, pavers can be an excellent choice. Pavers can be man-made concrete or stone, depending on your preference and budget.
  3. Tile. For bright colors and elegance, tile can be stunning around the pool. However, it can be slick when wet, which can be a safety issue.
  4. Flagstone. For a natural appearance, flagstone can create a lagoon-like style for your pool area. Stick to lighter colors to keep the stone from becoming too hot in the sun.
  5. Travertine or marble. Veined marble or travertine is a gorgeous option for your pool decking. It stays cool and is non-slip for a perfect surrounding to your pool but it is more expensive than some other options.
  6. Wood. The beauty of wood can brighten your pool area but it does have drawbacks. Wood is high-maintenance, especially when exposed to water on a regular basis.

Choosing the right pool decking is important for the style, safety and maintenance aspects you prefer. Talk to your pool remodeling contractor to determine which is best for your budget and needs.
