Question

cement pool deck... acrylic, epoxy or stain?


well we finally got done sandblasting our cement pool deck to get the last three coats of paint off. we have so much sand in our back yard and pool i i feel like i live in the desert!!!
the pool deck is now bare cement and knock off. we want to coat it with something that wont require lots of pressure washing..........(if thats possible) but most importantly that wont have to be redone every few years. we have lots of plants on the deck as well so the paint or stain would need to tolerate pool chemicals, florida sunshine, and water from plant pots..............any ideas??? some say paint some say stain...........which is best????????? vicki

There really aren't a whole lot of options when it comes to pool decks.
I just did one and went to great lengths to find a long lasting product.

There just isn't any. Paint or stain? Take your pick. "Which is best" is a relative question.
My experience has been that the paint mfg.s recommend recoat every other season, but the paint will actually last about 4 yrs. I'm in las vegas' desert enviornment.

Yes, I've heard about kool deck. Wasn't sure if it's mixed with the concrete or a paint. So, I didn't say anything.
