Factors to Consider When Selecting the Right Product for a Pool Deck in Mississauga, Ontario


The design of your pool deck defines the appearance of your pool area. As an important hardscape element, and one that is subject to frequent water and sun exposure, it should be pleasing on the eyes and functional at the same time. There are many popular pavers offered by Unilock for building pool decks in Mississauga that will suit these purposes. Here is what to pay attention to when choosing the right product for your Mississauga pool deck:

Why are Concrete Pavers the Best Choice for Your Pool Deck?

Given the fact that a pool deck is exposed to a number of different environmental factors, including water and sun, you’ll need a building material whose appearance and durability won’t be compromised by exposure to the elements.

Direct sunlight and seasonal variation of environmental factors, including moisture and temperature can damage the surface layer of paving materials. Unilock pavers are low in porosity and highly resistant to freeze-thaw cycles, offering safety and strength to your pool deck. The proprietary EnduraColor and EnduraColor Plus manufacturing processes prevent UV damage and fading, and protect the paver against damage from salt and chlorine.

Structural Strength

Unilock pavers can withstand heavy weight, which may include additional features such as grills, fire pits and furniture, which can be used to create a more functional and enjoyable pool area. The Richcliff paver, for example, offers a modern, elegant look with a surface up to four times stronger than that of poured concrete, all thanks to Ultima Concrete Technology from Unilock.

Easy to Clean

Umbriano pavers are the perfect pavers for pool decks, offering a beautiful design and a high-performance surface. These pavers are made using EnduraColor Plus Architectural Finishes, which blends nature’s highest performing minerals, like granite and quartz, to guarantee the paver’s everlasting beauty. The special technology, EasyClean Stain Resistance, gives the paver integral surface protection, assuring an easy cleanup before permanent staining can occur.

Surface Flexibility

As well as their easy maintenance, pavers are the one most flexible building materials, in the literal sense. Rigid surfaces are greatly affected by weather conditions, which cause them to expand and crack. Because of their interlocking nature, however, Unilock pavers are extremely flexible, with joints that allow for the distribution of movement and expansion.

Easy on the Eyes

One of the major advantages of Unilock pavers for pool decks is that they won’t reflect the sun into your eyes on summer days. Unilock paver feature a lower Reflectivity Index than both poured concrete and natural stone. Beacon Hill Flagstone pavers, for example, captivate with their relaxed appearance that blends well with both traditional and modern landscape styles. The large unit sizes of Beacon Hill Flagstone make for beautiful pool decks that are easy on the eyes in more ways than one.

Versatility and Aesthetics

Unilock pavers are incredibly versatile, being available in a range of colors and textures that match any style of landscape. Large pavers in lighter colors, such as Beacon Hill Smooth in the Opal Blend shade, can create stunning modern poolsides, while smaller, textured pavers, such as Thornbury pavers in Almond Grove provide the authenticity and warmth needed for a more traditional or rustic space.

Pool Coping

Pool coping can add the perfect final touch to the pool area. It’s important to incorporate non-abrasive coping, preferably with rounded edges. Brussels Fullnose and Fullnose Edger offer smooth, rounded edges, and a weathered surface texture. The coping is available in six different colors that are sure to match your backyard aesthetic.
