Renovating a Swimming Pool Deck

Renovating a Swimming Pool Deck

We enjoy challenges and this job site was certainly a challenge! This customer contacted us to apply our Polyurea Concrete Coatings on specific areas of their pool deck. They wanted to use our products to create an “edge” to their swimming pool and to provide comfort / durability to their outdoor living space.

Staying true to their reputation – Brandon and Coe did a fantastic job with this detailed installation! They spent the time necessary measuring exact distances around this swimming pool, prepping the job site, installing the product and insuring the job site stayed clean throughout the whole process.

Now our client is left with a stunning pool deck that looks beautiful and is much tougher than the stained concrete that preceded it!

This fiberglass swimming pool has a cantilever concrete deck. That means that the deck is 100% concrete – this allowed us to installed our Polyurea Floor Coating around the edge to create a custom coping look!

Fiberglass Swimming Pool with Cantilever Concrete Coping

For those who have a detailed eye for swimming pools, this particular swimming pool is a fiberglass pool with a cantilever deck. Fiberglass pools are single body pools constructed out of fiberglass and installed by excavating and setting the swimming pool – in one fell swoop. Often times fiberglass pool builders will install a concrete pool deck all the way around their swimming pools.

Being in the concrete renovation business, this is the perfect material for us to apply our Polyurea Concrete Floor Coating on! Our Vinyl Chip System (developed by Penntek Coatings) requires a concrete base for installation. That’s because our Polyurea Base coat adheres only to concrete surfaces. That being said, we needed to prep this job site for our products to properly adhere to the surface and ensure a proper installation.

Because this pool deck is a concrete cantilever, we had one single surface to work with. Our client had a specific request for our installation method on this job site. They requested for Brandon and Coe to create a “Coping” finish around the swimming pool. In essence, they wanted a nearly 2′ radius of our product installed all the way around their swimming pool. In order to achieve this, Brandon and Coe needed to accurately measure their chalk lines around the edge of the swimming pool and spend time focusing on the details.

Prepping The Job Site for our Installation

In order for Brandon and Coe to make this installation look neat and tidy, they needed to do the proper amount of prep work. Since this was a swimming pool deck, keeping the water clean and clear is essential. To achieve this, Brandon and Coe installed a polymil liner over the surface of the water and adhered the polymil material to the edge of the swimming pool with painters tape.

Additionally, they collected measurements in equal increments around the pool edge. This insured that our diligent crew created a pool coping that run parallel to the pool with equal distance on all sides.

Here you can see Brandon and Coe double checking their chalk lines before commencing with the installation of our Polyurea floor system. We love the detail of their work and know that our clients appreciate their attention to detail as well!

Measure Twice – Apply Once: Keeping Our Eyes on the Details

1 Day Coatings is all about the details. In fact, our crews have installed some pretty amazing Polyurea floor systems!

We created a custom finish to this concrete deck with a coping edge & by surfacing their outdoor living space. Our products create a smooth texture that is comfortable, safe and tough! Now client now loves their outdoor living space!

Cantilever Coping & The Outdoor Living Space

Alas, Brandon and Coe blew us away again and did a fantastic job on their finished product at this job site! Their detailed work on the pool edge created a fantastic design that leads the viewer to believe the coping is made of some other material than concrete. By installing our product along this pool edge, it creates a stunning design and enhances the safety and durability of this swimming pool deck.

Our Polyurea Conrete Coatings are able to hold up tough against all types of abuse, including:

  • Pool Chemicals
  • Foot Traffic

That’s a huge benefit to our client who now has their surface closest to the water covered with our superior Polyurea floor coating!

Essentially, our Polyurea surfaces are tough, beautiful and provide a much safer environment than standard concrete.

Create a Unique Outdoor Living Space

We believe that our Polyurea floor coating is the perfect solution for your outdoor living spaces. These areas of the home are often subject to high amounts of foot traffic and accidental spills from liquids and food.

Did you know that all concrete surfaces are naturally porous? It’s true! Concrete by nature has thousands of microscopic channels or cavity left over from installation. Water, oils & grease are capable of imbedding themselves into these cavities and creating stains in your back patio. The scary part is once these agents have imbedded themselves in your concrete, the chances of removing the stain is little to none.

Polyurea – The Perfect Solution for Grease, Stains & Foot Traffic

But not with our Polyurea floor coating! Our product seals your concrete surface and allows for zero penetration to the concrete surface beneath. It also does not absorb oils, grease or water – which gives you the chance of cleaning your surface easily and with little worry! Peace of mind has a value associated with it and it often leads to relaxation and enjoyment!

Excellent for Comfort – Compared to Concrete Decks

Relating to the level of comfort that our floors provide your indoor and outdoor living spaces – just look at the makeup of our product. Our polyurea floor coating is comprised of several core ingredients to create the finished product.

Starting with the bare concrete surface, we first install our Base coat (polyurea) in a smooth even layer. This layer acts as a sealing and bonding agent for our Vinyl Chip Flakes to adhere to. Secondly, we apply our Vinyl Chip Flakes as layer #2 for our flooring systems. This layer is 100% customizable and is the way that we achieve our color and your specific design!

Lastly, we seal our flooring system with a Polyaspartic Polyurea Topcoat. This is layer #3 of our flooring system. Here we apply a clear finish that provides a top-level seal for our floors and provides exceptional protection that is backed by our superior warranty!

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.
