Swirl Finish Concrete Pool Deck

Sometimes subtle changes make a world of difference! This swirl finish concrete looked blotchy and stained, but now it looks amazing after the gray tinted concrete sealer! It wasn’t a dramatic color change, but does that evened-out gray concrete color complement that lovely swirl finish or what?

Beautiful Broomed Concrete Pool Deck

This broomed concrete pool patio is stained with a rich khaki shade, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. The coping is stained with a deep charcoal color, adding contrast and depth to the overall design. The combination of the two shades creates a cohesive and sophisticated look for the pool area.

Project Info:

  • Project Completed In: 4 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 757 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    Pool deck is stamped concrete gray color with a khaki colored perimeter around pool that was done 12 years ago. We sealed the deck every 2-3 years as we thought the only way to revive the color was painting the stamped concrete which we did not want to do as we wanted to keep the color dimension it had.
    When we found the Direct Colors Antiquing Stain and EasySeal Kit it seemed to be the answer for a DYI project to meet our needs and to give the pool deck an uplift.
    I ordered 2 Charcoal Antiquing Stain & EasySeal Kits and 1 Khaki Antiquing Stain & EasySeal Kit to see if it would give us the results we wanted. I contacted Direct Colors and spoke to a Rep who answered my questions and reviewed the instructions for prep and application.
    I began with the pool perimeter and was impressed as I completed my second coat of stain. After I applied the two coats of sealer I was amazed and impressed with the results! I couldn’t wait to continue my project!
    I completed the project with ease in 4 days (the delay was having to wait for my additional order as I wanted to make sure it provided the results that the Direct Colors advertised). As a 62 year old woman this was a fun, easy, and rewarding DYI project that gave us professional results. Our pool deck has been restored to its original color and shine thanks to Direct Colors Antiquing Stain & EasySeal Kit!
  • Personal Tips:
    1. Read all instructions and contact Direct Colors Rep to answer questions or clarify and steps
    2. Have all product and materials ready – have a tarp available in case of rain after you stain
    3. If stamped concrete has a lot of crevices rolling on stain and brushing works best
    4. Sprayer works best to get even coats of sealer
    5. Have fun with this project – you can achieve professional results as a DYI

  • Personal Tips:
    My main problem was to keep the color uniform around the area. The pigment goes down to the bottom very easy and the beginning of the gallon is always lighter. I had better results using a brush and small bucket than the sprayer.

    • Project Completed In: 3 day(s)
    • Estimate of Square Footage: 250 sq. ft.
    • Project Description:
      Our pool deck was just plain brushed cement and it was very stained and discolored.
      After pressure washing the area and letting it dry for 3 days, we applied the Aztec Brown, let it dry for 24 hours, and then applied the second coat.
      After 24 more hours, we used the Antique Sealer.
    • Personal Tips:
      Spraying the color versus wiping it on is definitely the way to go. Turn off your pool filter system until the job is complete, just in case you overspray your sealer. We have a salt water pool and the sealer solidified on the surface of the pool, but was easily removed using the net skimmer.

  • Approx. Area:  2,000 Sq. Ft.Days to Finish:  7 day(s)About the project:  

    This was my first experience staining and sealing outdoor stamped concrete.  After doing a little research online, I found Direct Colors.  Their website was easy to navigate with all the resources and products necessary to get the job done.  I emailed them for a project consultation and received a response the very next day with the answers to all my questions, along with the links to everything I needed to get the job done.  I wanted to stain and seal approximately 2,000 sq ft of stamped concrete in my backyard that had faded over a 10-year period.   I immediately ordered the Direct Colors sample kit and decided to go with the Yukon Gold Antiquing Stain and the Solvent Based Acrylic Satin Concrete Sealer.  Prior to staining and sealing, I power washed the concrete, making sure it was completely clean.  As soon as that dried, I was ready to apply the first coat of stain.  Considering this was my first time staining and sealing concrete, the project went quite smoothly and I was extremely happy with the overall results.  I was a little reluctant to use the pump sprayer at first, as I thought I would end up putting too much on and wasting a lot of product, so I decided to apply the stain and sealer with a nap roller, around the pool and fire pit area.  After finishing that section, I decided to use the pump sprayer to finish the rest of the concrete starting by the big tree in my pictures and ending at the gate, on the other side of the house. Glad I did, because using the pump sprayer vs. the nap roller was like night and day. The amount of area I covered using the nap roller, I did in a fraction of the time using the pump sprayer. The whole project took me about 7 days, where I probably spent 4 of those days working and the rest, allowing the stain and sealer to dry.

     

    Personal Tips:

    1. Buy a pump sprayer. The time it took to spray the stain and sealer vs. rolling with the nap roller was like night and day.  (Important Note: If you have acetone based dyes in your stain or sealer, buy a pump sprayer that’s acetone resistant, otherwise the acetone will ruin the sprayer hose, seals and gaskets.)
    2. Surface preparation is extremely important when it comes to your final overall look.

Project Info:

  • Project Completed In: 2 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 0.00800 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    Sooooo we are a DIY family that let a stamped concrete area around our pool go for 19 years with only sealing it once after it was installed with a big box store sealer. After lots of research I ordered a sample of the antiquing stain and sealer. I was so impressed with the ease of this I thought this is a project I can do myself unlike most that I find and my husband has to complete. I ordered the 5 gallon buckets of each and started on a Friday with pressure washing the area. Started early Saturday morning with the stain and did a second coat that afternoon. Finished up on Sunday with two coats of sealer. The ease of this product was amazing. So simple for anyone to do regardless of your diy capabilities. Wishing I had done this sooner. Have received so many positive compliments. Took the concrete back to its original appearance after 19 years of neglect. Makes our pool area so refreshed and modern looking once again.

Personal Tips:
If In a windy area have a second person hold a piece of cardboard to prevent over spray. We bent a piece of cardboard to go around curved areas that had stone that we didn’t want to stain.

  • Project Completed In: 5 day(s)
  • Estimate of Square Footage: 1100 sq. ft.
  • Project Description:
    Our original stamped concrete was supposed to be a beautiful dark charcoal color. However, the installers were in a hurry and power washed it too soon. They destroyed the color and sealer, leaving weird power was streaks. Your product saved our stamped concrete!
  • Personal Tips:
    Plan! We had a large area around a pool along with a back porch. We had to do it in stages. We have large dogs, so we had to fence off sections at a time.Secondly, we used a sprayer to apply the antique stain. You should agitate the sprayer fairly constantly to keep the pigment evenly dispersed.
