In Sarasota, I'm about to re-finish a small, 25 year-old, in-ground pool and adjoining spa, and re-surface the surrounding deck (currently poly-pebble).
- The pool is on the south side of the L-shaped house, under a screen cage.
- On the northwest and northeast sides, there's a high overhang from the roof. The pool and spa aren't under the overhang, but much of the deck is.
- There are some very tall trees about 30 feet to the south and west, and some thick palm trees just outside the cage.
- Because of the trees and the overhang, the pool and deck get only about 4-5 hours of direct sun during the winter, 8-10 hours during the summer. Deep under the overhang gets very little direct sun.
I'd like to cover the poly-pebble with thin pavers, in as bright a color as possible. My contractor is warning me away from white or off-white pavers, saying that these colors will attract mold over time. True? (Pure white pavers seem hard to find, but that's another discussion.)
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
