A well-designed and expertly constructed pool deck can transform your swimming pool area into a luxurious oasis where relaxation and entertainment go hand in hand. Ortmann Concrete, a company with more than thirty years of experience in of concrete craftsmanship, is leading the way in creating custom concrete pool decks that combine beauty, durability, and functionality. This month we’re exploring the artistry and benefits of custom concrete pool decks by Ortmann Concrete.

Why Choose Custom Concrete Pool Decks?

When it comes to pool deck materials, homeowners have several other options to consider: natural stone, pavers, unglazed tiles, and wood. Each of these have features which may be appealing at first glance, but none of them are as enduring as concrete. However, custom concrete pool decks offer a range of advantages that make them an appealing choice for those who seek a unique and long-lasting poolside experience.

 Durability and Longevity

One of the primary reasons to choose custom concrete pool decks is their exceptional durability and longevity. Concrete is renowned for its ability to withstand harsh weather conditions, UV radiation, and heavy foot traffic without losing its structural integrity. Ortmann Concrete employs top-quality concrete mixes and reinforcement techniques to ensure that their pool decks remain solid and stable for many years.

Unlike wood that can rot, splinter, or warp over time, or composite materials that may fade, or other materials that may crack and deteriorate, custom concrete pool decks can withstand the test of time with minimal maintenance, ensuring that your investment continues to provide value for decades.

Customization and Design Flexibility

Ortmann Concrete takes pride in our commitment to offering tailored solutions to homeowners. Custom concrete pool decks provide a canvas for unlimited design possibilities. Here are some of the customization options available:

  • Color: Concrete pool decks can be stained or tinted to match your preferred color scheme, seamlessly integrating with your landscape and pool surroundings.
  • Texture: Choose from a variety of textures, from smooth and sleek to rustic and textured, to achieve the desired look and feel for your pool deck.
  • Patterns and Borders: Ortmann Concrete can create intricate patterns, borders, and inlays that add character and uniqueness to your pool deck design.
  • Integrating Features: Incorporate features like decorative tiles, custom shapes, or even personalized designs directly into the concrete to make your pool deck truly one-of-a-kind.

This level of customization allows homeowners to tailor their pool deck to their specific tastes and complement the architectural style of their home.

Safety and Comfort

Pool safety is paramount, and custom concrete pool decks are designed with this in mind. Ortmann Concrete ensures that the pool decks we design and pour meet safety standards, incorporating slip-resistant surfaces to reduce the risk of accidents around the pool area. Moreover, the surface remains cool to the touch even under the scorching sun, offering comfort and safety for barefoot poolside enjoyment.

Low Maintenance

Custom concrete pool decks are relatively low maintenance compared to other materials. Unlike wood, which requires regular sealing, staining, and sanding, and composite materials that may need periodic cleaning and repair, concrete decks can be easily maintained with simple cleaning and occasional resealing. This means more time for relaxation and enjoyment, and less time and money spent on upkeep.


Custom concrete pool decks offer an affordable alternative to premium materials like natural stone or pavers. Ortmann Concrete’s cost-effective solutions ensure that you get exceptional value for your investment, without compromising on quality or aesthetics.

 Increased Property Value

Investing in a custom concrete pool deck can significantly increase the value of your property. The elegant and enduring nature of these decks enhances the overall curb appeal of your home and attracts potential buyers when it’s time to sell. This makes it not only an enjoyable addition to your lifestyle but also a smart financial decision.
