Pool Pavers Colors


The Different Types of Pool Pavers Materials

Nowadays you can choose from a wide variety of paving materials to suit and complete the area around your pool. Many colors, shapes, and patterns are available to help cater to all individual tastes and needs. Remember that the type of pavers you choose must be slip-resistant. Also if salt water is being used in your pool, you may want to use a sealer to protect the pavers from salt-water damage.

Selecting the Colors of Your Pool Pavers

Things to keep in mind when selecting colors are:

1. Keep in mind that the reflection of the sun on lighter colors can be quite damaging to the eye on a glorious sunny day.

2. Darker colors (for example, black and brown) can also be damaging. With the sun shining on them throughout the day, they can easily get hot and can damage your feet.

3. Select colors that blend with the rest of your pool area, and compliment the surrounding gardens, and waterfalls you may have.

A combination of two or three colors can also be used. This can help colors blend through with surround features such as gardens, water features, and backyard designs.

Maintaining Colored Pool Pavers

It is recommended to seal your pavers when using colored concrete pavers. The color pigments contained in the concrete are known to fade, due to excessive sun and water damage. Also, if colored pavers are used for pool coping, a sealant is also required.
