Anthony & Sylvan can bring your deck to life with brick, stone, or concrete to create the perfect look for your backyard retreat. Use all one substance or mix and match to create your one-of-a-kind look. Stone is a great way to create a unique naturalistic look, while solid concrete can give your pool the low maintenance you desire.

Natural Stone Options

Natural stones, like the fieldstone shown above, are a perfect option for pool decking and coping. Natural stone can be used for the entire deck, incorporated in smaller sections, used for coping, or unique accents between concrete just like this setting. The durability of a natural stone deck is unbeatable. The non-slip surface of natural stones along with its ability to withstand extreme temperatures, and constant use make it the perfect choice when choosing decking for a pool in Pennsylvania.

Flagstone and other natural stones are the perfect way to enhance the space around your pool, creating a one-of-a-kind deck. Flagstone is a low maintenance option and typically easily installed. For those that are looking for a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors in their deck, natural stone is a great choice for and adds variety and individuality. The unique shapes of natural stones make them great for any pool shape, being able to maneuver around bends and curves seamlessly.

Concrete Decking Varieties

Concrete is an extremely popular option when it comes to pool decking. Concrete can be used in a variety of ways from stamped deck to individual pavers. What makes concrete a great option for pool decks is the non-slip texture and its ability to withstand exposure to chemicals. Concrete decks also eliminate the need for coping, if you choose, for a more seamless transition from deck to pool.

In the picture above, concrete pavers were used to blend with the surroundings perfectly. Stamped concrete can be made to resemble natural slate, flagstone, brick, and even wood. Colors can vary from white to dark blues and purples, even natural tans and browns. To keep your deck cooler in the warm Pennsylvania summers a nice white or light gray color would be perfect.
