The most common offenders that cause concrete damage are soil settlement and ground movement. There are other factors that shouldn’t be ruled out when diagnosing problems on a pool deck. These include the following:
Improper Pool Construction – When the construction of the swimming pool itself is faulty, other issues are sure to arise soon after. Poorly compacted backfill is to blame for heavy soil settling under a pool deck. The wrong ratios in concrete mixtures also lead to weak and easily worn-out concrete.
Excessive Concrete Slab Weight – When concrete slabs are too heavy, the loose beneath it soil is compressed. This results to concrete settling and sinking leading to an uneven pool deck. This is both a safety hazard and an unsightly deformity.
Weather Exposure – Varying weather patterns can cause the concrete to expand and contract as an effect of the freeze-thaw cycle. This weakens the concrete and causes cracking and spalling. Outdoor exposure to dirt and debris also contributes to the wearing-down of a concrete surface.
