We are in the bidding phase of a new in-ground pool project. The new decking installed around the pool will meet up with our existing covered concrete patio. We have met with 2 builders so far and have 1 quote, waiting for the 2nd. The standard decking offering is pea gravel. We do not particularly care for the look of it and it's not comfortable to walk on. We have looked at having Sundek sprayed over the new decking and the existing patio and have a quote for same from the first PB we met with. The 2nd PB does not recommend Sundek and characterized it as not especially durable, subject to staining, chipping, etc. His recommendation would be polymer based overlay but that is over twice the cost of Sundek and would bust our budget.
I have Googled the web searching for any discussions/issues with Sundek durability but I am coming up dry. For those that have had Sundek for several years (or any PBs that participate here) what is your experience?
