Why Pavers Pool Decks Are Better for Your Family
If you are like many Southern California homeowners a backyard pool is an integral part of your family’s downtime. A pool can create hours of outdoor play or a quiet place to relax and soak up the sunshine. Whether your pool is full of splashing and laughter or a quiet spot for reading your pool deck sets the stage for outdoor fun. A pavers pool deck is both durable and beautiful, making it the perfect solution for your family.
Pool decks are typically made of standard concrete or cement. Whether in solid grey or colored cement pool decks are not the best option for Southern California homeowners and here is why.
Concrete is not earthquake resistant and will crack or split when the earth moves. Since concrete is hard to replace many homeowners will patch it leaving an unseemly grey stripe down the middle of their pool deck.
Pavers are earthquake resistant. They are held in place with sand that is sturdy while allowing for movement. If the earth moves your pavers can move with it, preventing the need for frequently replacing them.
Concrete is a poor surface choice for the area near the pool because it prevents you from accessing plumbing and electricity. If you need to repair a pipe you have to rip up that entire concrete area which is time consuming and expensive.
Pavers pool decks are the ideal solution because you can remove only the pavers that are directly above the pipe or electrical wires. By removing only the necessary pavers you save significant time while preserving the rest of your pool deck.
Easy to Repair
If your concrete pool deck is damaged you have to rip up the entire thing and start over. Otherwise you will have a large crack or a stain if you try to improve only a portion of it. When you are laying a concrete pool deck you have to wait for the concrete to set which is also time consuming.
Pavers pool decks are easy to work with because you can replace only the damaged paver. The rest will stay intact, making this an extremely quick repair job. It is also better for the environment because you are not throwing away materials unnecessarily. Some of our paving stones come with lifetime warranties, like the Mega Lafitt and Mega Arbel lines, this can save you even more money on your repairs.
Paving stones are so durable that they can comfortably stand up to kids running and jumping and cars driving over them. The durability comes from how the paving stones are manufactured. We only work with the beset Southern California pavers manufacturers to ensure that we are getting only the best quality products.
Families concerned about safety should consider using texture pavers. By adding texture to the paving stone it keeps it from being too slick, an important distinction for the pool deck.
Pavers pool decks are durable, safe, lovely, and elegant. They are the ideal surface for staging parties and creating family memories. While your kids jump in the pool you can relax on your pavers pool deck and read or soak up the Southern California rays.
