A pool area has unique considerations when it comes to the pavers you use. For the best in function and beauty, here are four reasons why Unilock pavers would be great for your Hopewell Junction, NY, pool deck.
Safety is essential in wet areas like pool decks. Concrete pavers from Unilock feature non-slip surfaces even when the pavers are wet. This applies to smooth pavers in the Unilock line such as Beacon Hill Smooth. The refined textures of Unilock pavers mean they won’t snag swimsuits and feel exceptionally good on bare feet. Beacon Hill Smooth pavers come in five gorgeous colors that complement your home and landscape. For optimal barefoot comfort, choose lighter colors that won’t soak up the sun’s heat.

While beauty is important, function takes the driver’s seat when it comes to pool decks. There are so many shapes, sizes, textures, colors, and finishes to choose from that it can be a bit overwhelming to know where to start.
At poolside you want the most durable finishes so that you can enjoy your pool deck without fussing with it. This includes pavers infused with EasyClean Stain Resistance technology for superior resistance to stains from food, drinks, pool chemicals, or salt (if you have a salt-water pool).
Unilock Umbriano pavers feature a natural granite look and a non-slip surface. These popular pavers feature three proprietary Unilock technologies: ColorFusion Technology, which incorporates real granite pieces for a realistic appearance; EasyClean Stain Resistance Technology; and EnduraColor Facemix Technology, which ensures long-wearing color.
Beauty and Design Versatility
Unilock concrete pavers are designed for artistic expression. Many homeowners use contrasting borders, inlays and accents to create one-of-a-kind pool decks. One example of a brilliant combination uses flagstone-textured Unilock Bristol Valley pavers in the warm Bavarian color on the main field (Bristol Valley’s three larger-format shapes offer endless laying patterns and textural interest) and the look of cobblestone for accents, to create a touch of sophistication and character.
Many Unilock pavers come in random bundles of different sizes and shapes. This offers nearly endless laying patterns and allows you to create virtually any look: everything from a visually exciting and rustic appearance using highly textured pavers, or a sleek, smooth and minimalist aesthetic.
Borders are a simple way to tie in your pool deck with the rest of your hardscapes, particularly if the areas are separated. This lets you give your pool deck its own personality using different field pavers, and use the same borders as your patio to make the space feel unified.
