we had our failing pool deck surface replaced by southern elitecrete after seeing some of their work in our developement. 1st, they ground off the old flaking stuff. then it was resurfaced & looks like flagstone now. our guests think we had real stone laid. we were very pleased & the cost was much less than we had expected - less than quoted by the pool company - & less than replacement. they were even able to fill the old cracks so they're barely noticeable. the pool's repaired - the sealer they used is much easier on our bare feet - & the new surface isn't as hot as the old cool-deck. our neighbors are having their pool redone, too.
