An above ground pool can provide hours of summer fun for you and your family, but an above ground pool deck can take it to the next level. Not only do they add a finished, polished look to your pool, but they also provide a convenient and safe way to enter and exit the pool.
Above ground pool decks come in a variety of designs, materials, and sizes. The most common design options include a basic deck that surrounds the entire pool, a partial deck that only surrounds a portion of the pool, and a freestanding deck that sits off to the side of the pool.
The most popular materials for above ground pool decks include wood, composite, and aluminum. Wood decks are a popular choice because they are relatively inexpensive and can be stained or painted to match the color scheme of your backyard. Composite decks are also a popular choice because they are low maintenance and come in a variety of colors. Aluminum decks are a more expensive option, but they are also low maintenance and can be customized to match the color scheme of your backyard.
Size is another important factor to consider when planning your above ground pool deck. The size of the deck should be proportionate to the size of the pool, and it should also be large enough to accommodate chairs, tables, and other outdoor furniture. A general rule of thumb is to have at least a 5×5 foot area for every 1 foot of pool perimeter.
Safety is a crucial consideration when building an above ground pool deck. The deck should have a non-slip surface to prevent slips and falls, and it should also be properly secured to the pool to ensure that it does not collapse. Additionally, any staircases or handrails should be securely attached and meet local building codes.
Another important safety consideration is to ensure that the deck is properly lit at night. This will not only make it safer to enter and exit the pool, but it will also make it more attractive at night.
Maintaining an above ground pool deck is relatively easy. The deck should be regularly cleaned and inspected for signs of wear and tear, and any loose or damaged boards should be repaired or replaced. Additionally, the deck should be sealed or stained every few years to protect the wood from weathering and to keep it looking new.
Composite decks require less maintenance than wood decks, and aluminum decks require even less. However, all decks should be inspected regularly to ensure that they are in good condition and that they are properly secured to the pool.
An above ground pool deck is a popular and convenient addition to any above ground pool. They add a finished, polished look to your pool, provide a convenient and safe way to enter and exit the pool, and can be customized to match the color scheme of your backyard. With proper planning and maintenance, an above ground pool deck can provide many years of summer fun for you and your family.
