I have a concrete/vinyl pool and the pool has a four foot perimeter around it that is all concrete. It is very dull and old looking. I just want to finish the pool area, not the pool itself. Exploring options and have some questions:
1. Painting - If I paint it what is the expectation for it to hold up (ie if I start this willl I have to repaint every few years)? I am assuming the bond breaks down over time.
2. Cleaning - Is there any chemicals that will just remove the "dirt" looking finish in it. Some kind of stripper? If I do this do I need to seal it back with something?
3. Tiles - I live in the midwest and we see single digit temps in the winter. IF I was to do some form of tiles do they hold up in freezing weather.
Anyone have any experience with these options and tips for it?
