Patios & Pool Decks
Adding concrete to your outdoor areas can create a welcoming and comfortable option, which is also low maintenance and durable. Having a concreted patio area ensures that you are able to enjoy the outdoors without worrying about trekking mud through the house when you go back inside. Having a concreted pool decking area ensures that you are able to have consistency and a larger, more cost-effective solution to your pool surroundings. Not only that, but textured concrete provides resistance to slipping to promote the safety of your family.
Safety - Most outdoor areas are made with concrete. The reason for this is that the combination of the texture and absorbing nature of concrete, helps to create a slip resistant surface. Whilst it is still possible to slip on overly wet concrete, it does provide a safer alternative to polished tiles or other materials. When you have friends and family in your entertaining areas, you want to be sure that you are taking all possible measures you can to ensure their safety whilst enjoying the pleasing atmosphere of your outdoor areas.
Versatility – As quality laid concrete is a flat surface, it makes your outdoor areas exceptionally versatile. You will have the perfect foundation to decorate and furnish your areas, being able to rest assured that your belongings are safely placed on a flat surface. Even with textured concrete, levelers are still used to ensure that the surface is perfectly even by our contractors who have an eye for precision. This means you can place your outdoor settings, barbeques, pool lounges and plants around the areas to decorate as you please, with peace of mind that they will be stable.
Appearance – Concrete has come a long way over the decades, and we are able to do a number of things with it now to make the visual appearance you are striving for. You have the ability to decide on the color, texture, finish and pattern of your area of choice. As our contractors have completed a number of projects on patios and pool decking areas, they would be more than happy to help assist in guiding you on current trends, what has the longest life span and what would match the area and design you are going for.
Cost Effective – On top of all the above positives of having a patio and pool decking area constructed of concrete, it is also a cost-effective solution. Concrete is much more durable and stable than other alternatives and requires a much lower maintenance schedule than alternatives such as timber decking which you would have to maintain on a regular basis. Having a concreted area will naturally move with the ground and create small cracks and fade in the sun, however this is over an extended period of time and is not an expensive fix. This makes concrete patios and pool decks the best low maintenance option.
