Clay, stone, or other durable tile materials are getting very popular. This is because they are available in all kinds of different patterns, colors, and shapes. This provides you with an appealing and unique look to the pool area. But it’s not all tiles that are particularly water-resistant (like sandstone) and down the road, they can wear and lose their grip. Not forgetting some tile choices can get costly and most need a maintenance regimen to make sure they last for long.


While many people think wood easily gets damaged by water, there are waterproofing treatment procedures that will help it last for years under exposure to moisture and heavy use. A wood pool decking both looks good and is easy on your feet; however, needs more maintenance.

These materials are a preferred option since they can be made to mimic most other materials. They are usually more water-resistant and more durable than many others as well.

This is arguably is the most popular decking material. It is affordable, very durable, simple to install, very waterproof, needs minimal maintenance, and can be slip resistant. You can either install concrete pavers, which appears a bit more dated and adds a little bit of complexity to the installation or have concrete poured, which might need a bit of extra maintenance. Either way, this is the most popular and often the best material for your Portland pool deck.
