It is an innovation designed to help create an improved surface without forcing you to spend too much time and money. The chief benefit is a reduction in surface temperature; a cool deck surface is much cooler than a concrete surface, which makes it the ideal material for a pool deck. The non-skid surface reduces the risk of slipping even when the surface is wet. You can choose between a wide range of textures and colors, so you will have a pool deck of your own design. Finally, it is a relatively low-cost pool deck surfacing product.
