Wooden Deck Construction for Your Above Ground Pool

Do I Need a Deck?

While you can certainly use an above ground pool without a deck, there are some major drawbacks to doing so. For starters, above ground pools must be accessed by a ladder. For young children or individuals with limited mobility, this can be a challenge. Additionally, the area around the pool is prone to becoming muddy. Because guests enter the pool from the ground, mud and grass clippings frequently get drug into the pool, resulting in the need for more frequent cleanings.

Deck Size and Features

When it comes to deck construction, the sky is the limit in terms of size and style. The carpenters at LPB Construction can construct everything from a small splash ledge with stairs to a large multi-tiered deck. Many homeowners prefer to install a semi-circle deck that partially encloses the pool. This is popular because it provides ample room for sunbathing and lounging, as well as easy access to pool equipment on the ground.

Deck Materials

The contractors at LPB Construction specialize in constructing decks from pressure-treated lumber and TimberTech Composite Decking. Both options allow homeowners to customize the look of their deck and create a durable, long-lasting structure. Wooden decks are cheaper to install but require more maintenance than composite decks. Wooden decks must be cleaned regularly, as well as stained and sealed every few years to stave off splintering, staining, fading, and wood rot. Composite decking, on the other hand, is more expensive to install but is virtually impervious to water damage, wood rot, and mildew.
