Fortunately, Floor Shield of The Triad provides high-quality polyaspartic concrete coatings to Greensboro homeowners who are looking forward to a brand new pool deck. Keep reading to learn more about why our Floor Shield products are perfect for your outdoor pool deck.

Common Pool Deck Issues

First, let's go over some of the common problems that homeowners run into with bare concrete or tile pool decks. Splitting or cracking of concrete is a big one, alongside fading tiles due to weathering and sun exposure. Cracked concrete can create unsafe conditions for people using your deck, and moisture intrusion into the cracks can lead to the build-up of mold or mildew, furthering any damage. Other pool deck issues include:

  • Chipping around edges
  • Ingrained dirt
  • Peeling sealant or paint
  • Slipperiness

When you want to eliminate all of these issues and more, it's smart to choose polyaspartic concrete coatings for your pool deck.

Why Polyaspartic Floor Coatings Are Superior

Many people default to epoxy for their concrete coatings due to its relative popularity, but what they don't know is that polyaspartic coatings are far superior to epoxy in many ways. Epoxy has been on the decline in the last few years as more and more people realize that polyaspartic coatings are four times stronger than epoxy and offer a multitude of benefits that epoxy doesn't. Polyaspartic coatings are slip-resistant, perfect for an environment that is constantly wet, and is incredibly easy to clean at the end of a day hanging by the pool. And, unlike tiles, polyaspartic coatings won't turn yellow or fade under UV rays, meaning their beauty will last for years to come.

Additionally, the polyaspartic coatings we offer at Floor Shield of The Triad are easy to apply, adhere right to the concrete, and take way less time to cure than other options like epoxy. If you're planning a pool party a few days after the installation date of your coating, don't worry- your deck will be ready for use in under a day. And because there are no fumes or unpleasant smells that come along with these coatings, anyone can start using your pool deck as soon as it has cured.

As you can see, polyaspartic concrete coatings are perfect for your pool deck as well as for any other outdoor flooring!
