Below we will highlight some consideration to take into account when choosing a pool decking material and we will also highlight some of the most commonly used pool decking materials.

Pool Decking Materials-What to Consider

Although choosing a decking material that is attractive is very important, there are many other considerations you should take into account before making a final decision.

  • The decking material needs to be safe and not get slippery when wet. The last thing you want is for you or someone you love to slip and get injured while enjoying your pool.
  • The material should not be course, bumpy or uneven. Again, this is a safety issue-uneven terrain can cause trip and falls.
  • The material should be heat reflective so that the sun does not cause the surface to become too hot for bare feet. Most of the time you and your guests will not be wearing shoes near the pool, keep those toes cool!
  • You’ll want to choose a material that blends well with other landscaping and hardscaping surfaces that may already be present in your yard. Don’t make the mistake of having your pool decking put in only to later realize that it completely clashes with some of your other hardscape surfaces.
  • Find a material that is most resistant to algae, mold, chemicals, acid and frost. Pool decking is exposed to many substances and weather conditions, best to choose one that is as resistant to as many of these elements as possible to prevent future damage and wear and tear to the decking.
  • Be sure to make considerations for what kind of fencing you will have installed around your pool and make sure the decking you choose works well with it. Sydney has regulations regarding fencing along the outside of your pool, make sure you have a firm grasp on a vision for your pool fencing.
