It has been awhile since my last blog! Sorry about that! I suppose life
Marriage, children and all the above has put the blog on the back
Well, lets jump straight into it! The last couple years, last year
in particular, we have grew tremendously as a company and acquired some
great contacts in the process! The project I am highlighting in this blog
business with and is a honest pool builder with integrity.
I don't know about you guys, but I am enjoying this cool weather we are having!
As always though, it is going to get frigid cold an I will be wishing for summer again real shortly!
Although, on the plus side of winter, the waves in the Gulf get really good for surfing; I suppose then it is a trade off!
On my free time when I am not working(which seems few and far between) Surfing is somewhat of a stress reliever!
November is a big month for my Fiance' Ashley and I, as we will be expecting our first child together!
This weeks project was a Flagstone overlay out in Satsuma, Alabama.
They had old concrete that was all cracked up and to be frank, It has seen better days.
The grout was colored with with chocolate buff, and the stones was colored with Desert Beige.
It was then stained with Charcoal and Chocolate.
Slate trowel Down on a 1500sq.ft Pool Deck in Mobile, Alabama!
This one was a ton of fun! The weather gave us fits, it rained every chance it got at the worst possible time!
They originally had some latex paint on the surface, because it had a heavy broom finish it was a chore to remove
the paint! We did it with a couple of 7 inch cup wheel grinders and some good ole elbow grease to get it clean! ( a
broom finish is the type of texture they put on the surface when they poured the original pool deck.
Cracks cracks cracks.. There is two kinds of concrete, concrete that has cracked, and concrete that will crack.
Let's talk about pool decks! They are notorious for cracks. But why?
Inside your pool is not the only place that must not leak! A little preventive maintenance will go a long way in
preserving the life of your pool deck. Upon having you pool deck installed, did the contractor install caulk in the joints?
If you answered no, then you are at a serious risk of major cracking!
