Adding a deck to your pool adds a touch of luxury. If you buy a deck kit, you will pay around $1,500.00 to $4,500.00 plus installation. Installation can run another $1,000.00 to $3,000.00.
When adding a concrete deck around a swimming pool, homeowners should also keep in mind that the material isn't as smooth as other patio materials, which can cause injuries if people slip or fall. Despite some common problems, concrete swimming pool patios have many advantages.
Pool decks aren't normally included in the base costs of in-ground swimming pools. Pool decks can be made of concrete, pavers, wood, or other materials. Some municipalities classify decks wider than 4 feet as patio decks, which require different building permits.
The footprint of an in-ground swimming pool includes the pool itself plus any deck or walkway. In addition, most municipalities have codes mandating minimum deck widths for residential in-ground pools.
