Pool Deck Repair

Your private backyard pool is your oasis, but it becomes an unsightly safety hazard when the pool deck starts cracking and splitting. Has this happened to you? Turn to The Basement Guys to revitalize and stabilize the area with our industry-leading technique, the SettleStop™ PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting system.

If cracks and a crumbling pool deck are causing you trouble, trust The Basement Guys to lift the deck back to its original position using innovative techniques by trained repairmen. Although the method is minimally invasive and gentle, the results are durable and long-lasting. They also fortify the soil underneath your pool deck to prevent further sinking, cracking, or erosion.

Let’s look closer at warning signs you may need professional pool deck repair and the methods The Basement Guys use.

What is Concrete Pool Deck Repair?

Professional, high-quality concrete pool deck repair goes beyond simply sealing cracks in the deck. Our methods address the underlying cause of the issue, like sinking or shifting soil or excessive water in the ground.

Invasive, expensive traditional methods, like mud jacking, may not provide lasting solutions. And, even if you demolish the pool deck and re-pour it, if you haven’t addressed why the deck shifts or fails, the newly re-poured deck will start having the same issues as your current one.

For a more reliable solution, choose concrete lifting from The Basement Guys. We use a specialized material designed expressly for concrete lifting, injected beneath the pool deck’s concrete slabs to raise and stabilize it.

Our technique is called PolyRenewal™ concrete lifting. Settled sections of the pool deck are gently lifted, and any voids beneath are filled with PolyRenewal™ foam. It’s part of a comprehensive solution that protects your entire property from further damage and enhances its curb appeal and value.

Signs Your Concrete Pool Deck Needs Repair

We’re often asked, “How do I know if I need pool deck repair?” If you note one or more of these common signs, call The Basement Guys right away for a free repair quote:

  • Gaps or pool deck cracks wider than ¼” 
  • Multiple areas with significant cracking 
  • Uneven or sinking concrete slabs
  • Trip hazards from uneven surfaces
  • Water pooling on the deck
  • Concrete pits, flakes, and stains
  • Hollow sounds when walking on the concrete
  • Similar damage on patios, porches, steps, sidewalks, and driveways

If these issues are promptly addressed, the solution is often easier and less expensive to implement. Don’t wait too long—the problems that cause pool deck cracks will only continue, causing damage to your pool and possibly your home’s foundation.

Is Concrete Pool Deck Repair Necessary?

Yes, even if you don’t think the damage is bad, dealing with the problems causing cracks or crumbling of your pool deck is critical.

Damage will only escalate and pose greater safety risks for your family and visitors. The longer you wait, the more expensive the repair will be, and you may have limited options for fixing it if it can be fixed at all at that point.

Be wary of quick-fix or DIY solutions for a cracked pool deck. These temporary solutions won’t solve the underlying issue, which means that similar damage is likely to develop in the future.

Instead, choose early intervention from The Basement Guys to resolve the immediate concern and the root problem. We focus on whole-home solutions that protect your house, foundation,  and other structures from the ravages of shifting soil and erosion.

What Are the Benefits of Concrete Pool Deck Repair?

Besides getting rid of unsightly cracks around the pool, there are several great reasons to schedule concrete pool deck repairs:

Safer Environment 

Eliminating trip hazards can minimize safety hazards and create a worry-free environment for your entire family. Homeowners have greater peace of mind knowing there’s less risk of someone tripping and falling on the concrete or in the pool.

Prevent Additional Damage 

Solving concrete settling and cracking issues while they’re minor means you save money and hassle down the line. Putting off repairs only worsens the problem. The issue causing problems with the pool deck may also cause issues with your foundation, slab, or basement.

Improved Appearance 

Elevating the pool deck and sealing the cracks improves the pool’s aesthetic appeal and your overall outdoor living space. You can be ready to invite friends and family over for an afternoon swim.

Enhanced Property Value 

An uneven or cracked pool deck is a red flag for potential buyers, indicating problems with the pool’s stability and the house’s foundation. Even if you aren’t planning to sell your house, fixing these issues improves its value and equity.

Enjoy the peace of mind professional pool deck repair brings. The Basement Guys’ exclusive PolyRenewal™ system is more durable, efficient, and eco-friendly than traditional repairs, and we provide a custom repair solution to fully address all your property needs.
