Modern designs for your pool
Tile installation for your pool or deck is the best way to turn your backyard into a delightful living area. A myriad of modern designs are available to make swimming pools decorative and unique. Regardless of the structure, shape, and depth of your pool; you will experience a host of cosmetic options. No matter what may be your personal taste, you can find something that you will want to install. The bulk of swimming pool tiles are either ceramic or porcelain. They are available in a variety of textures, so you have a choice in tiles from smooth to coarse. The best choices are a combination of safety, style and functionality.
Safety is a priority
Whatever the final choice, your pool and deck tile should always be slip resistant. The area around your swimming pool will often be wet, and you will need a surface that will protect you and your family from the hazards of slipping. Tiles that are intended for the outside of the pool, or in any areas where people will be walking; should be treated or designed to resist accidental slipping. In an effort to maintain your new look, choose swimming pool tiles that are resistant to ultraviolet (UV) rays. You will also want to make sure that they are not adversely affected when exposed to freezing temperatures. Especially after the recent winters we have experienced in Charlotte.
Find a reputable pool contractor
Reputable pool companies will be able to offer a recommendation for a supplier of swimming pool tile at the most affordable prices. You can also check with home improvement centers or pool supply stores. They will be able to recommend tile selections that are inspected for safety before it is sold. Your pool builders will help you develop a budget for the pool. You can decide just how much you are able to spend, and select styles that will not put you over budget. Installing pool tile is a continuation of your investment in your home. Protect that investment by selecting tile that comes with a lifetime warranty.
Keep in mind that the tiles that you will choose for your wall and pool area will be different from the surface on the floor of the pool. Swimming pool tiles can build-up scum which may require the periodical use of an abrasive cleaner. Before you choose a tile, ask your pool contractor about methods and chemicals that should be used to clean them. Before you actually purchase your tiles, ask for samples so that you can get an idea of how they will look in your pool area. Be sure to view the tiles in both daylight and when your pool is under nighttime lighting.
