    curious about price of stamped concrete

    We are realizing the 400 sq feet the builder provides is not enough decking. We were quoted 8 sq foot for stamped concrete. Does that sound about right? We are looking at 300 extra square feet...ouch.

    Re: curious about price of stamped concrete

    Is that the total? We are paying $6.5/sqft for the concrete pour and $4.5/sqft for a stamped overlay (I believe it's similar to Kool deck) so in total $11/sqft.
    The decking cost is the largest single add on to my pool.

    They are charging 13-16 here. Sundek/Kooldek (Acrylic) deck is running about 7.75-9.00 a square with all three builders we have talked too.

    Plumbing is our biggest cost. We have to run a gas line 100 feet (and electrical as well).

    $8.00 per sq ft is a pretty good deal for colored and stamped. Here in CA it averages around $10

    Re: curious about price of stamped concrete

    Yep, just had my poured and $8 per sq ft is a great deal....assuming of course the prep is correct. (I paid nearly $11)

    If using fill, it must sit for a long time (3-4 months IMHO) to minimize shifting.
    Then 4" stone compacted
    Then rebar/mesh
    Then 4" concrete

    How many people are going to wait 4 months after the pool is done to pour the deck? They build skyscrapers in shorter periods of time.

    Yes, I agree - but they are using different construction techniques to ensure no settling...like driving pylons hundreds of feet into the ground.

    My point is many people backfill, then pour a deck the next week...that is generally asking for trouble. Four months may be long, but the point is 1 week or 2 is really not enough.

    I went 8 months. But then again 6 of those months were winter and the pool was closed. I wouldnt even think of pouring a concrete deck for at least 3-4 months after the pool was built.

    $8 is a good deal. I couldn't get that low for a stamped pattern even after some negotiation.
