We have the typical Kooldeck around our pool in Florida. It's time for
resurfacing of some sort. What are some of the alternatives you have
experience with? I like the temperature performance of Kooldeck - it does
not get hot at all in direct sun. However, it does wear out and also seems
to mildew easily. We would also like a surface that has a bit more "pizazz"
Thanks for any ideas!
Low cost, nice appearance, staining it from time to time will hide
hairline cracks: Acrylic Knockdown (AKD). You'll find lots of
contractors that do this - sometimes labeled with a brand name such as
"Kool Deck" or "Kover Krete". Generic products are cheaper, find a
local contractor with a good reputation.
High cost, nice appearance, almost zero maintenance but can be hot in
direct sun: Brick Pavers.
Avoid in Florida climate: Exposed aggregate, "broom finish" concrete,
tile (slippery when wet).
