How to Find a Concrete Pool Repair Professional

May 2, 2008
Do you have a concrete pool deck? Problems may have arisen over years in your concrete deck at it settled. Cracks and other imperfections happening over time changes the pristine look of the original concrete. To get the concrete repair done right, you need to get a professional.

A Professional Pool Deck Repair Company, What To Look For

Looking for a professional who knows what they are doing in repairing concrete pools, can be a challenge. Repairing concrete is not a job to be taken lightly, and if done right, it looks good. So it should be done by a professional. To get a good background on local contractors, I would recommend that you first called the Better Business Bureau. They will be able to recommend the top local decorative concrete company to you.

Look for companies that do not have many or any bad marks against them in arbitration on the BBB. Also once you contact them, ask for references. Call around to friends that also have concrete pools. Ask them who they use. This can give you a good overall feel for a company before you even call them the first time.

Is It Important To Get A Professional To Repair Concrete?

Concrete is not always an easy material to work with. The material can be very finicky. The way it dries and hardens and you really need to know to work with it which takes experience. In decorative concrete, this is even more important because the damage must be corrected to the point where it looks like the original surface in texture and color. For example, if a pool deck has a beige color with a bricklike contour, a color like that can be highly difficult for the average person to replicate in concrete with store-bought acid stain for concrete and a hand trowel.

Having to refix a homeowner repaired job can often be more complex to repair than the original repair itself. A botched acid stain job may even get into fixing concrete that was not originally damaged, just because it took up some stain that ended up looking terrible. This definitely is much more costly to the homeowner because often material must be removed, making the job take twice as long or more. Thousands extra in repair can often be attributed to slipshod pool deck repairs.

What To Do In Preparation For The Pool Deck Inspector

You need to go over your pool deck deck very thoroughly. It is vitally important that you know where all the damage is in your pool deck. This will aid the professional pool repairer in knowing what needs the most attention.

When the pool deck repairman arrives, you need to be there to let him know exactly what needs to be repaired. Proper communication between you and the contractor will ensure no misunderstandings crop up.

Finally, Important To Remember

All in all, it is important to remember first of all that you do not want to try to attempt your own concrete pool deck repair in most cases. There are professionals who can make the cracks in concrete blend in completely naturally to the look of the surrounding concrete. Finally, be prepared to show the contractor what needs fixing and your expectations. Remember, get it fixed right, and enjoy your pool from now on.
