    Redoing kool deck

    Hi all. My kool deck is 10 years old and flaking in parts. Thinking of having it redone or maybe get something different. Has anyone had their kool deck redone? What did it cost? I got a rough estimate of around $7k for removal of the kool deck and replacing it with a concrete coating.

    Solar pool heating

    Thanks for the reply and info. You're correct about my roof, it gets full sun all day. The pool is something like 15k gals., 10 x 30 maybe a bit bigger. I'm assuming 300 to 400 cu ft of solar panels would be good. I will have to look into a solar pool cover. I've seen some people say they cut...

    Solar pool heating

    I'm considering getting the pool heated. Is solar a good option? I've heard it only adds about 2 months to the swim season. Not sure if that's worth the cost. I haven't gotten any estimates yet but I'm assuming about $5k for my pool size. A neighbor mentioned they're going with Heliocol. I've...

    Pool deck experience with hot concrete pavers

    I'm thinking of having my pool deck redone. It's some type of Kool deck or a cool deck, not sure which. It is peeling and cracking and is 9 years old. I also have a tree root that grew under the deck walkway and I might have to have it broken up to get it removed. I've seen older thread on the...

    Tree root under deck

    Thanks for the advice. I don't have a folding tree limb saw. I do have an electric limb saw for limbs higher up. I guess I could use that or buy the one you suggested. I already had the root cut up closer to the end of the deck. The landscaper never mentioned the root ran further along the...

    Tree root under deck

    I recently noticed a root from one of the trees behind the pool growing alongside and under the decking. I had part of the root cut off near the top of the deck that was closer to the tree. I didn't realize the root traveled further down the walkway. The landscaper I hired never told me it went...

    Cool decking peeling off

    Actually, I'm not sure what brand it is or if it is even a so-called "kool deck". It is 9 yrs. old.

    Cool decking peeling off

    Looks like I need to have my decking redone. My dog hit this one spot with her paws and the coating came off. It wouldn't look good to just repair the one spot and there are other areas where the coating is peeling off. Any idea what something like this costs to have done? Thinking of maybe...
