The ideal pool deck is both safe and functional. Which pool deck material do you think best suits your pool? 

Spring is almost here! Is your pool ready for the changing season? If you don’t have a pool yet, we suggest you start designing your custom pool to be built now! Once the weather warms up, pools are a great source of entertainment for your friends and family. They add an amazing and functional focal point to your backyard, and for good reason. If you have a pool, it is a wise choice to install a pool deck. So, how do you choose the right pool deck material? We’re here to help.

Pool Deck Materials

You have more than a couple options when it comes to pool deck materials you can choose from. Regardless of the type of material you choose, the pool deck you get installed should be designed with safety first in mind. If you have children, child safety features surrounding your pool (via deck or fence) are a must. Of course, you’ll want something that is both functional in regards to safety and beautiful in regards to visual appeal. Learn more about these pool deck materials:


  • Concrete: Traditional poured concrete decks are a common, cost-effective choice for pool deck materials. You should always make sure to use a non-slip sealer. Stamped concrete is increasingly popular since it is capable of imitating other stone finishes on the market. However, concrete pool decks are known to crack when exposed to extreme cold.
  • Pavers: Pavers will cost you more up front to install, but they will make up for that in their durability. If a paver does for some reason become damaged or broken, you have the benefit of only replacing that specific paver rather than the entire pool deck.
  • Stone: Pool decks made of stone are some of the most expensive on the market, but their visual appeal is uniquely amazing! A great benefit of using travertine limestone for your pool deck is that it is not slippery when wet and has the ability to stay cool to the touch despite heat.
