Pool season is here. Is your deck ready?

Indiana summers mean one thing: it’s time to gear up for long days around the pool. Your outdoor oasis is sure to get a lot of foot traffic this year, and we want to help you make sure it’s in the best possible shape.

Whether you’re thinking about installing a new pool or constructing a deck around your existing pool, you should know your options for a deck that will last for years and keep your pool-going guests safe all summer long.

No slipping and sliding

When you’re dealing with stone pavers and water of any kind, it’s natural to wonder about the possibility of the stone becoming slippery. After all, avoiding slipping is one of the most important safety precautions for any day at the pool.

When it comes to the stone pavers Cutting Edge uses around pools like yours, we specifically choose pavers that aren’t prone to becoming slippery when wet. We make sure to build using pavers with an anti-slip texture, and keep the drainage of pool water in mind during construction.

Two factors that can naturally cause a slippery surface are lichen and algae. If these are a factor in your backyard, you can either scrub it off with a stiff brush and a cleaner, or you can call in the experts at Cutting Edge to get the job done.

When in doubt, seal the deal

One of the main benefits of stone pavers for your pool deck is that they make your deck virtually maintenance-free. Breaking and cracking aren’t a factor you’ll ever have to worry about, but we can help you apply a sealer if you desire.

Sealers come in a variety of finishes, and we recommend a non-slip finish for any pool deck. These sealers will naturally help bare feet get a better grip on your deck, and sometimes contain a grippy additive for extra strength.

If you’ve built your pool deck from the ground up with Cutting Edge, you’re likely already enjoying the benefits of such a sealer. If your pool deck was constructed by someone else, it might be time to call in our certified professionals to apply a sealer and keep your pool guests safe this summer.

Make room for more water fun

Your pool is the highlight of the summer for your friends and family. That’s especially true for all of the kids and grandkids in your group — and we know just how to level up your pool area to make this a summer to remember.

We can integrate your hardscape to create an in-ground water feature to complement your pool this summer. Two of the most popular options to extend your water play area are dancing fountains and splash pads. Either one is a great option to entertain your younger guests and keep them cool this summer.

This summer is the right time to level up your pool with a professionally built deck from Cutting Edge. Get your free estimate today, and get ready for a summer full of fun.
