This pool deck had some low areas, cracks, and surface wear. We repaired the cracks with a modified epoxy and ramped some low spots. We applied a skim coat over the entire pool deck and then our DiamondKote Pool Deck Knockdown Texture with a solid color sealer. After a few weeks we noticed that the large trees dropped leaves that left color stains on the new surface, which needed to be washed off often, so the customers and I decided to apply a custom stain system that matched the color of the vegetation stains so cleaning didn’t need to be done every day. We sealed the color satins in with clear sealer and non skid.
