Spring has sprung and pools are opening. Are you looking around your yard thinking about what you can do to improve your outdoor space? Working on pool areas and backyards is a core part of McEntee Construction’s efforts — it’s something we’ve proudly overseen and executed throughout our 35-year history. For a recent project in Sussex County, we created a stamped concrete foundation / flooring for a homeowner’s pool house, as well as a stamped concrete pool house surround and nearby patio. It’s a process that is both extremely familiar to us and also unique as each home has its own specific needs and personal touches.
Creating the Pool House Foundation
To build the pool house’s foundation, we first had to excavate the soil and prepare the area with rebar. The foundation would also serve as the flooring. The homeowner desired a wooden aesthetic for the floor, so we reflected that in our wood plank pattern and its colorful mix of mahogany and espresso. Then, directly outside the pool house we created a rough-stone stamped concrete border in a spice hue. Once completed, this border will house an accompanying bar with stools.
Pouring and Designing the Patio
After finessing the pool house area, we turned our attention to the patio. First, we took up the pavers. Then, we installed stamped concrete with a circular brick pattern that complimented the pool house’s border. For extra measure, we also added SharkGrip to the stamped concrete to prevent slipping.
