Epoxy flooring is highly resistant to virtually every challenging factor that garages face. Chemicals, such as gas, oil, grease, and bleach, commonly wreak havoc on typical garage floors. These harsh chemicals can wear plain concrete floors down quickly and leave lasting stains. Epoxy resists these chemicals and is not prone to staining. Hard impacts are also common in the garage, such as dropping tools or knocked over bikes. These impacts can crack or chip the typical garage floor. Epoxy garage floors can handle practically any impact without being damaged in the process. Not to mention, the maintenance for garage floor epoxy is much faster and easier than the maintenance of a standard garage floor. Maintenance is as simple as daily sweeping or dust mopping to remove solid debris and the occasional mopping when it becomes soiled.

Can my pool deck be repaired? Or will it need to be resurfaced?
In many cases, we can simply repair your pool deck. Oftentimes, this comes down to your preference. If a pool deck is only in need of a few repairs, these are easily concealable and will not affect the overall appearance of your pool deck. However, if your deck has extensive damage, repairs will likely be noticeable and can detract from the look of your pool deck. In this situation, it’s recommended that you have your pool deck resurfaced to mask the repairs that will be required.
How long does a new pool deck last?
A new concrete pool deck’s longevity depends on a few factors. These include how well it’s maintained and cared for, the quality of the installation, and the weather. A poorly installed pool deck will not last nearly as long as one professionally installed. Maintenance is a must in the longevity of your pool deck as well, including periodic sealing. If your deck isn’t sealed, the weather can quickly take a toll on the lifespan of your deck. In most cases, a new pool deck will last between 10 and 15 years.

What is the difference between kool deck and sundek?
Kool deck coatings and sundek coatings are both pool deck coatings that can reduce the heat absorption of your concrete pool deck. The main difference between these two systems is that kool deck coatings consist primarily of polymer cement while sundek coatings are mainly acrylic coatings. Both systems work well for giving your pool deck a new look and both can be stamped to mimic the look of high end materials. They are both efficient at making your pool deck cooler to the touch as well.
What is the process for pool deck resurfacing?
There are several steps involved with resurfacing your concrete pool deck, and these steps depend on the resurfacing material that’s been selected. For this example, we’ll explain a stamped overlay. The first step is cleaning the deck and inspecting it for damage. This step is crucial as any damage left on the concrete can cause the resurfacing material to become damaged. If any damage is found, such as cracks or chipping, it will be repaired before moving forward. Once repairs have been made, the surface will be ground down using a floor grinder fitted with a diamond grinding wheel. This is to ensure that the overlay material adheres to the existing concrete properly. When the rough grind has been completed we’ll move on to applying the concrete overlay. We begin by mixing and spreading the overlay across the surface of your pool deck. With the overlay in place, we’ll start to apply the chosen stamp to your pool deck as the overlay starts to set. After the stamp has been imprinted onto the overlay and it has time to cure, we’ll apply a concrete sealer to your pool deck to finish the job.
