Epoxy mixtures are among the more popular options for pool decks. They contain resins and hardeners that create a unique chemical reaction and form a sturdy surface for your pool deck. Epoxy resins offer a lot more durability and strength than acrylic-based paint or other premium materials.
Epoxy overlays also provide incredible longevity depending on how often you plan on using your pool. The average lifespan is anywhere from 10 to 20 years, which will vary according to usage, care, and sun exposure. Many homeowners opt for epoxy overlays because they are super durable, affordable, and you can apply them onto various materials, including concrete and fiberglass.
Before applying the epoxy paint, a professional contractor will need to inspect your pool deck and repair any defects. This way your pool deck can properly receive the epoxy paint so that there are no issues as it cures and dries out. Prepping your pool deck for the epoxy overlay is always the most important step in the process.
