Resurfacing a Free Form Pool Deck!

If you’re a home owner, you’ve likely been been in this scenario. You have a beautifully decorated space: one that you’ve decorated, invested time and money into. Yet, despite your efforts – you still have that one area that drives you nuts. Maybe it’s a wall that needs to be removed, some cracks in the floors, or an ugly concrete surface.

Many of our clients are home owners who take pride in their spaces. They want their house to be a “home” and desire each space to be beautiful, functional and relaxing. So why would your concrete surface be any different? After all, the flooring (whether it be indoor or outdoor) contains the largest surface area of your home.

Reasons to Resurface a Pool Deck

If you own an outdoor living space such as a swimming pool, outdoor kitchen or sitting area – you’re familiar with dirt, dust and debris. These areas of our homes provide excellent spaces for entertainment, but they also take a lot of abuse from its exterior environment and human interaction.

From swimming pool chemicals to grilling grease, drink spills, impact from toys, the playing of animals and moving furniture – our outdoor spaces take a lot of abuse! Long story short, it’s often the busyness of life that wears down our outdoor spaces – requiring a resurface to restore it’s original beauty.

The Different Types of Pool Decks: How We Compare

Since our inception, we’ve seen all types of exterior concrete surfaces. From epoxy coatings, pebble deck, salt rock finish, broom finish, kool deck and much more – these surfaces are good for the short term but don’t compare to our premium finish! What’s the key difference? Well, for starters our product consists of polyurea – a material that is much stronger and way more flexible!

In addition, our floors provide greater slip resistance due to their “orange peel-like” texture. This is a huge benefit for owners of swimming pools due to the added safety for users of all ages!

In addition, our polyurea floor coatings are highly customizable. We provide a common list of pre-assorted colors on our website, but there are literally thousands of color combinations you can create. This is a fun and attraction benefit of our product!

Removing Failed Epoxy Flooring

Removing Failed Epoxy Flooring

We’re amazed at how many of our clients have experienced failures with epoxy flooring. When we originally got into this business, we knew that we’d receive calls for this type of work. But what is truly astounding is how many of our clients have this exact same problem: the problem of their epoxy floors failing.

It’s a unique situation and one that we encounter on a daily basis – from garage floors to exterior pool decks or even commercial applications such as a commercial kitchens. Since the inception of our business, we’ve been all around the state removing epoxy floors to install our 1 Day Coatings – Vinyl Chip Flake Flooring.

Our teams have the right equipment to remove tough epoxy flooring. Using a commercial grinder we can chisel away the old epoxy surface while vacuuming to minimize dust!

The Problem with Epoxy Floors

So what is exactly is the problem with epoxy floors and why do so many of our clients want them removed? Well, for starters, epoxy floors are installed on a wide array of applications: from residential homes to commercial facilities. In majority of cases, most people install epoxy floors because of their alleged durability and wide color selections.

Historically, epoxy floors gained a wide following after its introduction into the marketplace during the early 1900’s: epoxy floors have been around for decades (hence our wide customer base of unhappy epoxy clients). Complicating matters further, there are now hundreds of different DIY epoxy kits for home owners to apply themselves. If properly applied and maintained, epoxy floors can last for years. However, it’s more of a science and an art. Therefore, most failures are due to improper installation and maintenance.

Epoxy Floors Typically Fail Within 2-3 Years!

Due to their complexity, the majority of epoxy floors are installed incorrectly and fail within 2-3 years. Some of the reasons for the failure of epoxy floors include but are not limited to:

  • Peeling Floors – occur due to improper surface preparation or if epoxy is applied when temperatures are too hot or cold. The surface also needs to be etched (not smooth) when epoxy is applied.
  • Moisture Buildup – moisture can pool beneath your epoxy surface causing bubbling or de-lamination. We consider moisture as a “bond breaker” and it will always cause a failure.
  • Air Bubbles – air can form beneath the epoxy surface if mixed too quickly or if the concrete surface is porous. This causes “pop ups” or “bubbles” in your surface that will eventually crack and peel away.
  • Color Variations – epoxy is comprised of two parts: epoxy resin & polymer hardener. If not mixed long enough or the temperatures are too cold – the colors will not blend naturally and create a wide variance in color.
Here you can see a fabulous before and after image showcasing the difference that our product can make and how beautiful our floors look after its installation.

We Professionally Remove & Replace Epoxy Floors with our Vinyl Chip System

After any of the above listed failures occur, most home owners or business owners become concerned and look for a solution. The ugly side of epoxy floors is that once installed – epoxy floors are not easily removed. Additionally, most home owners do not have the proper equipment to remove epoxy surfaces themselves. Isn’t it ironic how there are hundreds of DIY epoxy kits and very little information on how to remove them after they fail?

The truth of the matter is: epoxy floors need to be mechanically removed by a specific piece of equipment. We recommend allowing 1 Day Coatings to remove your existing epoxy system with our Commercial Grinder. Our equipment is designed to remove epoxy floors on a big scale. With a heavy grinder head, commercial vacuum system (to minimize dust) and a staff fully committed to 1 Day Coatings – we can remove your epoxy floors in as a little as a day!

Additionally, our teams remove a wide array of epoxy surfaces on a weekly basis. Therefore, we know how to safely remove each type of epoxy system so we can retain and restore your concrete surface effectively.

Our Floors Last Longer & Are More Beautiful

Well, all of that certainly seems scary and not something that most home owners would opt into if they knew the reality before applying the epoxy product. We believe that most home owners originally choose epoxy floors because they want to protect a concrete surface and don’t know of any other alternative. That’s why we’re here! Our product is a perfect substitute for epoxy floors but without all of the problems!

We sincerely believe that 1 Day Coatings creates a more beautiful surface but also one that is stronger and lasts longer. For starters, we provide a 15-year residential & 5-year commercial warranty for all of our 1 Day Coatings clients. Good luck finding that same type of protection in any other flooring system.

Among the most popular of these choices is the rise of outdoor kitchens.

In fact, many of our clients often choose neutral color patterns for their floors & counter tops due to the freedom it allows for the rest of our their outdoor decor.

By sticking with a neutral color pattern – it’s easy to them incorporate many other neutral materials & products. From outdoor furniture, to rugs, accessories such as clocks, lamps, tables & more – sticking with neutrals helps the entire space blend together in a professional looking manner.

Pool Deck Renovation – Replacing a Chipping Kool Deck

Pool Deck Renovation – Replacing a Chipping Kool Deck

Our 1 Day Coatings product line is, in our professional opinion (slightly biased), the best industrial floor coating product on the market. We can install our products in just one day and provide our clients with both a 5-year Commercial & 15-year Residential warranty.

On the flip side, there are many products that you can purchase “over the counter” at places like Lowes & Home Depot. Many of these “off brands” will give you an installation guide which makes the buyer feel empowered and capable of doing it themselves.

Unfortunately, most home owners quickly discover that applying floor coatings by themselves is harder than it appears. Problems often arise within a time period of a few months to a few years. Flaking, Chipping or De-laminating are the most common issues that we see in the field.

Manufacturers of these off-brand products do not provide their clients with a warranty. They can hind behind the mask of “not professionally installed.” This leaves the home owner holding the bill – with wasted product and a surface that is difficult to remove. It’s a frustrating circumstance and one that we see too often in our industry.

Here you can see the old Kool Deck system. Our client was experiencing peeling and chipping and contacted us to replace this existing floor system with our 1 Day Coatings product.

Removing an Old & Chipping Kool Deck Coating

This week, our teams removed a Chipping Kool Deck system from a back patio / pool deck. This home owner contacted us after they began to experience the same issues listed above. It’s applied correctly, Kool Deck is a wonderful product that provides many benefits to clients. For starters, it helps to cool the patio surface – which in Texas is a very nice benefit!

However, like all products, if they are not installed correctly (or if the product naturally starts to fail) they no longer become viable. Our client contacted us and requested for us to remove this Kool Deck system and install our 1 Day Coatings product instead. We were happy to fulfill this request and completed the project in just one day!

As you can see from the image above, our products provide a nice, smooth finish. Clients often refer to our system having an “orange-peel” like texture to it. It’s softer surface and higher surface traction creates a perfect surface for our clients to walk on barefoot. Our 1 Day Coatings product is extremely comfortable to walk on and provides long lasting benefits to our clients. Backed by a 15-year residential warranty, it’s hard not to see how our products are more comfortable, stronger and a better all around choice!

Here you can see our commercial grinder. We use these rigs to grind and remove existing floor coatings so we can expose a fresh layer of concrete. This is part of our “prep work” and it’s essential for a properly installed and long lasting product. We focus on the details!

We’ve Got The Tools: Commercial Floor Grinders

Removing a Kool Deck system (or any other system for that matter) requires some elbow grease and the right hardware. Because Kool Deck and other systems are applied with an epoxy bond coat, they have to be mechanically removed. We’ve invested some serious capital into industrial floor grinders so we can remove all types of durable surfaces.

Trust us, we see these types of floor coatings all the time! In fact, we are used to removing stubborn epoxy floor coatings and have done it on dozens of occasions. You might say that removing low quality floor coatings and replacing them with our high quality industrial floor coating is a specialty of ours!

Alas, this image shows our finished product and how beautiful our finished product looks on this pool deck!

Our Installation Process: Remove, Repair, Clean & Install

So, first things first – we utilize our commercial floor grinder to evenly remove the existing floor coating. We grind the floors evenly until we get down to a fresh layer of concrete – which is what our polyurea basecoat adheres to.

After the floor is ground down to a fresh layer of concrete we then look for defects and begin the repair process. Utilizing our CR Mender Repair System, we can fill and repair a wide array of cracks, pits and joints. Our CR Mender helps to create a smooth surface for our products to adhere to. It’s also the perfect time for us to repair your concrete and spot treat areas where failures may appear.

Thirdly, once we’ve repaired the concrete with the CR Mender, we can then clean the surface and apply our Polyurea Basecoat. This polyurea basecoat is highly durable and adheres to the fresh concrete – creating a solid bond coat. From here we distribute our Vinyl Chip Flakes and seal our finished product with our Polyurea Top Coat.

We Can Install on All Types of Surfaces

Our 1 Day Coatings product is brilliant because it can be installed on a wide array of surfaces. From pool deck coatings (such as this) to industrial floors and commercial kitchens – we’ve done it all! In fact, our clients love our products so much because it enhances their ability to enjoy their lives without worrying about their floors.

We provide our clients with an industrial floor coatings that won’t chip, peel or flake due to any of the following criteria:

  • Abrasions
  • Drops
  • Chemicals
  • UV Light
  • Foot Traffic
  • Scrapes or Scratches

Overall, it is a very simple product in regards to technicality, but it requires attention to detail and familiarity with installation. We’ve installed literally hundreds of Vinyl Chip Systems and have created some amazing results! For a portfolio of our work – check out both our Blog & Photo Gallery. Here you can see for yourself how we’ve made the difference in our clients homes, offices and commercial settings!
