Make your pool stand out with a new pool deck

New pool deck in Charlotte, NCOne of the best ways to improve the appearance of your outdoor living area is to install a new pool deck.  There are several considerations when building a new pool deck, however one of the most important is which material to use to build the deck.  Which material you choose may depend upon several factors, including space, surrounding landscape, uses for the pool deck, how much time you want to spend on maintenance and upkeep, and your budget.  Carolina Pool Plastering, one of Charlotte’s best pool companies can help you choose the best material for your new pool deck.

Concrete decking

Decorative concrete comes in a variety of colors and textures.  It can be stamped with designs and can be colored to match your home’s exterior.  Decorative concrete allows homeowners to create a new pool deck which complements your Charlotte NC home’s exterior and can be designed to meld into the surrounding environment.  Concrete can even be textured and colored to replicate more expensive materials such as stone, slate or wood.  Concrete is very durable and affordable, especially when compared to stone or slate.

Concrete pavers

One of the more economical materials for a new pool deck is concrete pavers.  These pavers are available in many different colors, sizes, and shapes allowing them to be laid in a variety of designs and patterns.  You should look for colors and designs which match your home’s overall style and which match the overall landscaping around your new pool deck. One of the best things about concrete pavers is that they do not crack.

Flagstone and bluestone

One of the most popular natural materials to use in a new pool deck is flagstone or bluestone.  Placed in a random pattern using square and rectangular stones, flagstone and bluestone make a gorgeous new pool deck.  You can even use grout which complements the color palate of your home.  Another benefit of bluestone and flagstone is that is stays cool to the touch, even in the sun.  Slate, on the other hand gets very hot and usually is not a good choice for a new pool deck in Charlotte NC.


Brick can make a very pretty new pool deck, but you must be sure to use smooth bricks so they are not too hard on bare feet.  Brick is especially nice if you are trying to create an older look to match an established landscape.  Bricks are available in several colors, but only in one size.  The different colors provide an opportunity to create designed and patterns to customize your new pool deck.  Carolina Pool Plastering, one of Charlotte’s best pool contractors can help you create the perfect new pool deck for your home.
