Are you ready to face another Tucson summer next year without having a pool at home? Instead of sweating your way through the sun and scorching temperatures again, consult with a pool designer in Tucson to find out how easy it is to have a beautiful pool at your house. In addition to figuring out the shape and style of the pool you want for your yard, you’ll have to decide what sort of material you want surrounding your pool deck. Keep reading to learn about the materials you can choose from for your pool deck.
Concrete is one of the most common choices for pool deck materials, as it comes in a wide variety of colors and is often an economical choice. It is prone to cracking when the weather gets colder, so talk with your pool designer to find out if it makes sense to have a concrete pool deck in Tucson.
Travertine is widely used in Tucson, both inside homes and for exterior applications. It can be used for your pool deck, and lends an authentic southwest feeling to your backyard. Travertine pavers provide a non slip surface that is durable and attractive while maintaining a price that fits within the budget of many pool owners.
Natural flagstone is a popular choice in Tucson for pool coping and pool decks. Flagstone provides a natural non slip surface and is softer and more porous which allows moisture to evaporate quickly. Flagstone can be cut into tiles or can be used in larger more natural slabs, both provide a pool deck that is low maintenance with a long lifespan.
Pavers are made of concrete, and are available in many different sizes, shapes, and colors. In contrast to poured concrete, pavers can move with the ground, which helps reduce the chances of cracking during cold temperatures.
