Among the most popular pool deck surfacing options available in the market, lace texture happens to be a favorite to many. It is preferred by many, probably due to the durability and ease of maintenance qualities. However, it will still require maintenance repairs and makeovers at some point in time. How long it will take your pool deck and other surfaces to require such attention may not be a defined by time, but will rather may depend on a few factors as will be mentioned below. First things first though, here are some good features that make acrylic lace texture a good option for surfacing your pool deck.
Maintenance free qualities of lace texture
Lace is in general, easy to clean and maintain. It is also resistant to thermal pressure that in most cases leads to hairline cracks and peeling of coatings, if any. Legitimate products are also quite durable and easy to repair. These features make the coating have a longer lifetime than most other resurfacing options.
Durability will depend on where you source your surfacing products and the manner of installation
The type, nature and authenticity of acrylic lace products will undoubtedly determine how long your coating will last. Purchase legit products from legit sources. Where you source your services from will also determine how well your installation will be done. It is also important to request a maintenance manual after your lace coating is installed.
Regular maintenance measures are important
Maintenance does not necessarily have to mean having to make repairs. How well your pool deck is maintained and inspected regularly can have an impact on the wear and tear rate of your installation. Water pH, pool cleaning, and water treatment are just but some of the regular maintenance measures that your pool should be subjected to; if at all your lace pool deck coating is to stay good looking for long. Clean regularly with clean water and a stiff broom. Deposits that are harder to clean can be subject to scrubbing with citrus based cleaners.
The under laying material
Depending on the base material underneath your lace textured surface, durability can be variable. A good example is for instance where another surface such as an existing application existing of Kool Deck or another acrylic lace finish happens to be under laying. How long before maintenance repairs are needed will be determined by how the installation was done and how the two layers bond to one another. This is because factors such as change in thermal resistance and the rate of contraction and expansion are likely to be interfered with when lace is applied over any another surface, even if it is similar in nature. If applied on bare concrete however, it is more likely to last longer.
