Pool Decks Freehold NJ
As we head into the summer months, the pool deck often morphs into a happening social zone where the family comes together for some fun times. There’s more to designing a pool deck than meets the eye. If you have the opportunity to plan your design before the pool is installed, you will want to make sure you consider these design ideas.
There’s more to designing a pool deck than meets the eye. If you have the opportunity to plan your design before the pool is installed, you will want to make sure you address certain things:
• Size: If you intend to use the pool deck as a patio for entertaining or lounging, consider the size and amount of furniture you wish to incorporate.
• Elevation: properly plan steps, multilevel areas and retaining walls.
• Drainage: Drainage should always be away from the pool and your home. In areas where it is difficult to grade the pool decking, we recommend that you install drains that will transport excess rainwater to an appropriate location.
Selecting the right product
When choosing the right product for your pool deck there are things you should think about. Safe non-slip surfaces in lighter colors, non-abrasive edges for pool coping (the edge closest to the water) and inset borders to help define the pool edge are all features to consider.
Lighting and additional features
Lighting is a great way to accent the pool deck surface texture and to provide additional safety around the pool when using it after sunset. NighTec™ luminescent pavers or Skyfuel™ lights are great options. In addition, you may consider adding a water feature to the pool area for visual and auditory appeal; after all, there is nothing more relaxing than the sound of a gentle waterfall!
