Deck - Get Ready for Summer Fun With a Deck Pool

by Pool Builders on 04-16-2011 in Articles

It's that time of year again, summer is fast approaching and you've decided that this would be the year to get a swimming pool for the family. And that's just great, but also a bit ordinary. Instead of just having an ordinary swimming pool, why not turn that swimming pool into a home improvement project and have a brand new deck built, with a deck pool as part of the plan!

Now there are several options to consider when you have decided to take on this type of a home improvement and those have to do with the type of material to be used to build the deck. Some of the choices available include:

Stone Decking - A perfect material for an added aesthetic to your deck and your yard. You can find stone for decks in different sizes and several different color choices. While not one of the cheaper materials listed, they are exceedingly resilient.

Composite Decking - Over the last few years, composite decking has become a widely popular alternative to wood for deck construction because of its overall durability. Composite decking due to the materials that are used to manufacture it tends to cost more than a traditional wood product, but the trade-off here is that composite decking needs less maintenance than its wood counterpart.

Wood - The cheapest of all the materials listed here, wood is probably the most picked choice when it comes to deck construction, in no small part due to its affordability; this of course will help keep the cost of your deck project as low as possible.

Poured Concrete - Very popular because of the things that can be done with it as far as its color and texture. Poured concrete can be stamped to resemble real brick, tile, and even stone.

Each of these materials has their own merits and of course your budget will determine what will work and what won't. Now another matter to consider of course is the actual deck design. Of course you want this deck and the pool to accomplish a few things when all is said and done with its construction. You want the design of the deck to be aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and to compliment the overall look of your home.

If the pool is actually being added as an addition to an already existing deck or patio structure, then you want to make sure that if at all possible the same type of decking material is used. The last thing to consider of course is the actual space available for this project, and this is where talking with a contractor who specializes in this type of deck construction is vital.

And when it comes to a design for your deck, the only limitations are your imagination and your budget so enjoy your backyard this summer. Get your pool ready to entertain family and friends by working with a general contractor to get a broad deck that matches your backyard environment perfectly.
