You have many options when it comes to selecting a material for your pool patio, but have you considered stamped concrete? Here are a few reasons why stamped concrete may be your best choice:
What is Stamped Concrete?
Stamping concrete is a technique that is done when concrete is wet. A tool or device is used to leave an impression in the concrete. This can be a block pattern, making the concrete look like bricks or stones, or a shape, such as leaves or shells. Stamped concrete can be customized based on your design desires.
Why Should You Consider Stamped Concrete for Your Pool Patio?
Stamped concrete has all the traditional benefits of regular concrete. It is strong, durable and long-lasting. Stamped concrete also has texture, which helps to prevent it from being slick when wet. Stamped concrete can be customized based on your outdoor space, which gives you a unique surface around your pool. Lastly, stamped concrete is low-maintenance. This is perfect for people who do not want to spend a lot of time caring for their pool patio surface.
Does Stamped Concrete Have to Be Sealed?
It is strongly recommended that you seal any concrete surface used around a pool, including stamped concrete. Most often, film-forming sealers are used. They form a protective film on the concrete which prevents the intrusion of water and harsh pool chemicals. Not only do sealers protect your concrete, but they also protect you. A slip-resistant additive can be mixed into the sealers before application.
