When it comes to creating a functional and visually appealing pool area, choosing the right type of pool surround is crucial.
A concrete pool surround offers home owners a long lasting, durable, low maintenance and visually appealing option for their pool area. There are several options available, each with its own unique benefits and aesthetic appeal.
Stencilled concrete is a popular choice for its ability to mimic the look of tiles, pavers, natural stone, brick, or wood. It can be customised with a variety of patterns and colours to complement your pool and landscaping.
Exposed aggregate is another option that adds a unique and natural look to pool decking and provides anti-slip properties making it a safe choice when wet.
Coloured concrete is perfect for adding a splash of colour to your pool area with many colours available which can match the environment or the home.
Honed concrete is commonly used for pool surrounds, which in Bundaberg is sometimes referred to as a ‘honed concrete pool deck’, whichever way you look at it, honed concrete pool surrounds offer a sleek and modern finish.
No matter what option you choose, concreting around your swimming pool can enhance the overall aesthetics of your backyard while providing a durable and safe surface for years to come.

Honed concrete is a type of concrete finish that is achieved by grinding and smoothing the surface of the concrete with progressively finer abrasive tools. This process results in a smooth, matte finish that is less reflective than polished concrete but still has a slight sheen.
Honed concrete is often used for interior flooring and outdoor areas such as patios, walkways, and pool decks. It can be customised with a variety of colours and patterns to complement any design style. Additionally, honed concrete is often preferred over polished concrete for outdoor areas due to its slip-resistant properties, making it safe and practical.
The time it takes to concrete around a swimming pool can vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the area to be concreted, the type of concrete used, and weather conditions. Generally, the preparation and pouring process can take a few days to a week, depending on the complexity of the project.
Polished concrete can be suitable for wet areas, but it is important to take precautions to ensure that it is slip-resistant and safe to use. The polishing process can create a smooth and reflective surface, which may become slippery when wet. To prevent slips and falls, it is recommended to add a non-slip additive to the sealer or use a penetrating sealer that does not affect the texture of the concrete. With these precautions, polished concrete can be a durable and low-maintenance option for wet areas such as pool decks.
Concrete can be laid on sand. In truth, it is the best sub-grade material that concrete can built on in Bundaberg and everywhere else.
