Do-It-Yourself Pool Decks - Can You Really DIY?  

by Pool Builders on 11-15-2009 in Articles

Do you want to have a nice pool deck built around your pool, but don't have enough money to hire someone to do it for you? Then perhaps you have been thinking of building a do-it-yourself deck. But the big question is: 'Can you really do-it-yourself?' There is no easy answer to this question, but there are some things to consider before making any decision:

* Are You Skilled In Using A Screwdriver?

Contrary to what you may believe, you don't need to be a master architect or carpenter to build your own pool deck. This is because DIY deck kits already come with hole pre-drilled onto the wood you will be using. Everything has been made easy for you, so all you need to do is screw the parts tightly together in order to complete the task.

* Do You Visit The Hardware Store Frequently?

DIY pool deck kits already contain all the materials you need to build your deck. Thus, you won't have to make a single trip to the hardware store unless you lose some of the parts provided or you don't have a screwdriver. This will save you the time and money you will otherwise spend if the materials hadn't been provided at the onset.

* Are You Intimidated By The Task At Hand?

Building a pool deck is not like replacing a light bulb. In fact, this may be one of the most difficult DIY task you will perform your whole life. However, everything you need to know will be indicated in the instruction booklet that comes with the kit you will purchase. All you need to do is follow the instructions and you will have your deck completed in no time.

As you can see, building a pool deck is no walk in the park. But everything has already been done to make the task as easy as possible for you. So if you want to save some money, you should start building your own pool deck now.
