As the muggy heat in the air and fresh flowers tell us, summer has arrived! Already, bare feet all over the country are padding around their swimming pools, ready to take that first joyful plunge into an age-old activity of this hot weather season. But, how much attention do we give to what those toes will be walking over? After all, the pool is often the main attraction. Little do we realize, but what frames our residential lagoons, the pavement surrounding our pools, makes a large and measurable difference as to how much we enjoy the experience, as well as how well our patios are showcased.
Stamped concrete, like that offered through Chattanooga Pool Services, is a unique and shopper savvy choice to make when weighing the options. We have all seen poured concrete, but remember that striking kind you sometimes see around resort or spa pools, with variations in color and texture? Sometimes it looks as if it has been laid in individual pieces and then grouted around the edge, with varying color combinations. This, fellow pool lovers, is stamped concrete. It is made to replicate the appearance of flagstone, brick, or even slate, often with two different tones of color in the same pour. It is literally stamped to look this way. A base color is mixed (troweled) onto the surface you are paving and then a second accent color (release agent) is added on top moments before the chosen stamp is imprinted. What you are left with is a creative textured surface that can be color modified to suit your preference.
Aside from the advantages of the appearance of stamped concrete, Chattanooga Pool Services also offers durability and increased protection with this product. When a paver pours and stamps the concrete, it is also sealed, protecting the area from any pool chemicals or salt water it can come in contact with. It is also superior at standing up to the elements. With this option, gone are the days of staining your wooden decks, only to pull splinters out of your bare feet from walking around the pool, where the most foot traffic happens. As opposed to pavers, stamped concrete will never need replacing or resetting due to wear, with overall low maintenance. All this, and it is the cheaper alternative.
Chattanooga Pool Services welcomes your inquiry into this unique, economical option for your pool addition. It can be customized to suit your creative whims and will do so while increasing the value of your property. Get out and enjoy this season in all its splendor, and while you do, spare a moment to notice where your bare feet take you... it just might be your next concrete inspiration!
