Sealing and Protecting Pool Decks

Concrete applications on pool deck surfaces are not complete without a sealer for protection. Concrete sealers prolong the life of your deck which keeps it looking good and makes it easier to clean and maintain.

Film-forming sealers are the type most often used for decorative concrete work, and they do just what the name implies—form a protective film on the surface of the concrete that will prevent the intrusion of water, chlorides and harmful pool chemicals. Most of them also impart a sheen that highlights the beauty of colored or exposed aggregate finishes. Because good traction is important on pool deck surfaces, a slip-resistant additive such as H&C SharkGrip from Sherwin Williams can be mixed into the sealer before application. These products can improve traction while providing a smooth feel underfoot.
