Why Choose Cool Deck Coatings?
Many people have found out about cool decking and have come to love how it works. Despite the number of available options out there, the demand for resurfacing with a pool deck coating is quickly increasing. Here are noteworthy reasons why:
- The acrylic concrete coating used has the ability to reflect heat, keeping the surface 30% cooler than other types of coatings. The texture, creating air pockets underfoot, also contributes to this cooling effect.
- The material is sprayed on top of a pool deck and then troweled down manually, thus, creating a safe and slip-resistant surface.
- The spray-on coating is an appealing cover-up for concrete repair patches and scars. It also covers stains and discoloration.
- Only a thin layer of the cool deck coating is needed, making it an affordable option. It can be used with other pool decking systems, such as stamped concrete overlays.
Due to the demand for cooler pool deck surfaces, many different companies have emerged, manufacturing products that can provide such coatings. Stardek and Surecrete, for example, are offering cool deck coatings. One of the most popular brands, KoolDeck, also created their version of a kool decking. But instead of being sprayed, theirs are stamped on the surface. CTI and EliteCrete, which are popular companies that offer dealerships, also offer cool deck overlays and coatings.
