Decking Contractors for Pool Decks Add Warmth and Beauty to Your Backyard

If you have either an above-ground or in-ground pool, you need specialized decking contractors for pool decks to professionally install a high-quality pool deck. Most pools are used during the hottest months of the year when the sun is beating down on the surface of both the pool and the deck. Materials like stone and concrete can often hold onto heat, becoming hot and uncomfortable underfoot as you walk to and from the pool. These materials can also become very slippery when wet which is not recommended for pool decks and patios, as it poses a large fall risk. The course and abrasive surface only worsens the issues that happen as a result of slipping and losing one’s footing.

Wood decking is a great way to update an existing concrete or brick patio because it can be constructed right over top. Have an above-ground pool? Wood is also the material of choice for building stairs and decks around this type of pool. Wooden pool decks are more resilient underfoot, as well as softer and more comfortable to stand and walk on. They don’t heat up to the same degree in the sun, so walking out to your pool can be an enjoyable experience, rather than a potentially painful one.

We recommend a good exterior wood, such as ipe (an exotic hardwood) to repel water and insect damage.  The lumber or composite material you select should employ a safe and slip-resistant surface. Of course, aesthetics is an important consideration, too. Choosing the best deck color that will complement your outdoor space is key to creating your perfect retreat. And don’t overlook your pool fence. We recommend matching your new pool deck with your fence to create overall harmony.

Add to Your Pool Deck Oasis with a Spa Surround

You’ve got a great place to relax, enjoy nature, and spend time with your loved ones. Adding a custom-made spa surround can enhance your relaxing ambiance. Wood decking around your hot tub feels soft and nice underfoot. This natural look also complements your outdoor space, and lattice or other screen designs act to camouflage your ‘oasis’. You may wish to create a sundeck platform that looks beautifully finished, yet rolls over and easily covers an in-ground tub. Here are a few other ideas:

  • Use existing walls to hide multiple sides
  • Incorporate an arbor overhead to serve as a beautiful focal point
  • Green it up! Unlike in-ground pools, spas don’t require a wide berth of paved space for access. You can plant right up to the edge of your spa and soften the look of hard edges while adding color and nature that provides an organic, natural look.

There are many ways to create a beautiful aesthetic when incorporating a hot tub into your landscape while preserving your backyard’s beauty. Whether you require curved steps, angled privacy screens or a pagoda roof overhead, Atlanta Decking can provide the special environment you’ve always dreamed of.

Our Decking Contractors for Pool Decks Landscape and More

Beyond planning your pool surround and fencing, decking contractors for pool decks will properly landscape the area, which is an integral part of your new ‘outdoor room’ design. Have fun with colors and texture, but do your research so you know what the plants need, how big they get when fully grown, and how much sun and shade they need. Don’t plant shade trees near a pool because you’ll have to deal with falling leaves that could get into the water. Container plants work well around a pool. Treat yourself to an exotic feel by incorporating tropical plants for color and interest. Keep in mind they will probably require more maintenance such as watering daily.
