There are a certain number of people that just do not want an unsightly concrete deck next to their swimming pool. In those cases, pool builders may recommend a spray deck. A spray deck is a form of decorative concrete where the spray creates a rich texture on the surface. This is a low cost solution and can be applied to both residential and commercial applications. In fact, a spray deck can be used on a driveway, sidewalk, walkway and patio as well as the surface right next to your swimming pool. It tends to be low maintenance although pool builders will usually tell you they need to come back and spray the deck again in about two years to give it a nice finish. You will also do well to use sealer on your spray deck to insure your patio looks good for a long time.
