Mountain Brook Pool Oasis Gets A Low Maintenance Makeover

What is better than having a tranquil inground pool with a spacious deck surround just steps away from the back door of your home?

Custom pool deck with lounge area

Answer — Having that deck surround built from high-quality, low maintenance materials, of course!

It is just a fact: pools (inground or above) require a tad bit of maintenance to keep them fresh, healthy and beautiful for endless use. These Mountain Brook homeowners were looking for a way to improve the aesthetics and function of their pool deck surround without adding the chore of deck maintenance to their outdoor to do list. This is where Archadeck of Birmingham was able to come to their rescue!

Custom pool deck with lounge area

When we met with the homeowners during the consultation, their existing pool deck was built quite some time ago. The deck, even though it was composite, was built using an early composite that did not feature poly-wrapping like that of today’s more advanced composites. This was causing the deck to look aged. On closer inspection, Archadeck also noted that the original installation was hand screwed and not properly supported. These issues were leading to a structural failure of the structure. Since they really liked the idea of low maintenance, they decided to update the area with a brand spanking new composite deck.

New Low Maintenance Decking Steals the Show!

Archadeck of Birmingham removed the old pool deck and began building a new one from the ground up! Using this approach allowed us to ensure the substructure of the pool deck was up to code and structurally sound. The homeowners chose lovely TimberTech low maintenance decking from the ProTerrain collection in silver maple. This decking capped on all four sides all the way down into the grooves. The capping is made with 100% synthetic materials for total immunity against moisture, making it the perfect choice for a poolside oasis! With an easy to clean surface and color engineered to stay looking new, this decking also comes with a 30-Year Fade & Stain warranty.
