Hello. I'm brand new here but ran across the site in researching pool deck options. We have about 2,000 square feet of deck and patio that we need to get refinished. The concrete itself is in pretty good shape but there's a little bit of stain that needs to be sanded off. (When we first had the pool installed we couldn't afford colored concrete - an extra $3,000 on a project that had already run over budget.) I researched products & ended up staining the concrete myself with a product called Soycrete. Anyway, there is some residual product left. We had one company come out & quote $18k for Kool Deck to be applied - nothing fancy, just one color. I thought this was pretty high and have been looking into other companies. One uses Spray Deck and my husband is worried about the durability....apparently the Kool Deck company said it wouldn't need to be resealed for 5-7 years & was offering a really long warranty period. But it seems like the acrylic products are just as durable as the Kool Deck, at least from what I've been reading. Likewise, it didn't seem like there was much difference in the cooling effect between the products at least according to some? Does anyone have any recommendations? I did run across a product called Graniflex which seemed really interesting but can't seem to find a local company that uses it. Does anyone have any experience with this product? Thanks for the help!
