Pool Deck Options: Travertine Pavers

Travertine Pavers Swimming Pool DeckDoes your home have a swimming pool? Are you remodeling the community swimming pool? If you are planning to have a new pool deck installed, you should definitely familiarize yourself with all of the swimming pool deck options. A popular pool deck option, especially in sunny South Florida, is travertine pavers. Travertine pavers may be the best choice for a beautiful, not slick when wet, not hot when sunny, not too difficult to maintain, swimming pool deck.

Travertine is created from natural stone. It is cool to the touch, which is why it is a good option for a pool or spa deck. It will be a low-maintenance alternative that includes comfortable features. Aside from its obvious beauty, travertine is highly resistant to heat, scratching, staining and acidity, but it is its durability one of the elements that leads people to choose this material for home building and home improvement projects. Other benefits of travertine pool tiles are:

  • Travertine does not get too hot, even in a warm climate and/or the sun shines down directly on the pool deck. Travertine is a kind of sedimentary stone so it has natural voids and openings in its surface which absorb the heat of the sun.
  • It is very comfortable to walk over travertine pavers with your shoes off.
  • Travertine does not get slick when wet which can easily prevent slip and fall accidents from happening. They have a tumbled surface meaning these are roughed up so the tiles won’t be slick for anyone walking on them.
  • Unlike wood, travertine does not attract tiny insects and does not require a lot maintenance.
  • Travertine is made of stone so they are durable and can last for a long time, which is why consumers often feel it is a good investment.
  • There are also many choices available in terms of colors, styles and patterns. Travertine pavers can blend in very well with almost any landscaping. No two pavers will have the same colors and nuances which can make them look very attractive around the pool.

Whether you are planning to build or to renovate your pool, consider contacting the experts at All Seal Exteriors to get a FREE estimate on a travertine pool deck for your swimming pool.

Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal With Rocks

Home’s Curb Appeal With RocksIf you’re looking to give your outdoor space a new look, using rocks might be the way to go. Natural stones add texture and contrast and require very little maintenance. And while there are lots to chose from, certain rocks will help set the tone for your entire outdoor space.

For Driveways …

  1. Gravel is easy to find and equally as easy on your wallet, but looks surprisingly elegant in dark or tan colors.
  2. Cobblestones range in color from rich, earthy browns to gray. That and their rounded edges add character and a sense of history.
  3. Recycled Granite Pavers are made of leftover granite countertops. These rust or gray-colored stones will look as nice on your driveway as in your kitchen.

For Patios …

  1. Slate is frequently shaped into squares and rectangles for indoor and outdoors rooms. The uniform look lends itself to a polished finish.
  2. Sandstone is most often seen in tans and rusty reds. The earthy, large slabs create a nice contrast to dark outdoor furniture.
  3. Pea Gravel is an excellent rock for shadowy spaces where grass grows sporadically.

For Decoration …

  1. Boulders are perfect for waterfalls, accent pieces, soil retention and more.
  2. River Jacks are not just attractive, but also effectual. They’re great for preventing weed growth and retaining moisture.
  3. Mexican Beach Pebbles are a great design element. Exposure to the sun, water and sand give these rocks a smooth, polished look that compliments water features, pathways, gardens and more.
