We have a prospective client with a 2200 SF swimming pool deck that they had covered in some sort of epoxy/pea gravel texture. This texturing is coming apart and they are getting little pea gravels in their pool and spa. Therefore, they are looking to have the epoxy and pea gravel removed from the concrete decking, and would like some sort of new decking with "color and dimension". We could do a paver over lay, however there is an issue due to the elevation of the french doors at basement level. The pavers would be higher than the thresshold. Another option is to break out all 2200 SF of concrete and start over from scratch and either pour new concrete or install pavers. Or....another option would be for us to remove the epoxy/pea gravel and then have someone that specializes in concrete texturing come in and texture the concrete. I have seen some nice texturing jobs. But I've only ever seen such work when it's new. Does anyone have any horror or success stories to share about concrete texturing? Sure, we're a paver company, but I'd hate to rip out all their concrete if we could find a good company that can do a good texturing job that will last, thus creating a satisified client as well as saving them alotta money.
