How Much Does a Pool Patio Cost?

What's under our Pool Patios

Installing pool patios are very similar to installing normal patios. With 2 major differences. One being the subbase which is poured concrete and two, the pitch on the pavers.

Coping

Coping is the term used to identify the material used to cap the pool edge or shell wall. Besides simply being necessary, the coping provides an opportunity for a decorative accent, which can greatly enhance the appearance of the pool, steps or walls.

The Cambridge Shapes are specially designed for specific structural, landscape and pavement applications and hardscape solutions such as steps, pool coping, edging and curbs, facing and permeable pavements.

Options we recommend are:

Stacked natural stone retaining walls create a terraced garden, showcasing a variety of plants and flowers.

Pitch on a Pool Patio vs. a Normal Patio

Like a normal patio we have to be pitched away from the home and ALSO pitched away from the pool. Think about if you had a major rainstorm and all the debris from your patio washed into your pool.

Subbase Preparation

The first step in building a pool patio is setting the heights. Base prep is the most crucial part of pool patios. One reason being we pour a concrete base so we only have one shot to get it right, and compaction. Compaction is one of the most important parts of base prep. Because it is a new pool, all the soil around it was disturbed causing air pockets and voids that allow the dirt to settle over time. You can see signs of this if you ever visit a family member or friend’s house and their pavers around the pool are lower than the coping.

Pouring Concrete

Once compaction is complete and the forms are set, we pour the concrete. Pouring concrete can be a very tedious process. We have to ensure all our forms are set to the correct heights, area is clear of any obstacles that can affect productivity, tarps are placed to prevent concrete splatter and the fact that once the concrete is poured and screed out we need to wait for it to cure. Once the concrete is cured fully or enough to walk on without getting deformed we can continue working. Concrete cures to a solid object so removing would be a major hassle if done incorrectly. Concrete is always recommended to be used around new pools especially considering the chance of the ground settling is greater.

Coping, Sand & Pavers

Next, we install your coping of choice. Different coping types and pools require different applications. For example, bullnose can be glued to concrete where if it was a steel wall pool, we´ll need to install wire lath to the coping and then set the bullnose on concrete, depending on the situation you may see a concrete joint. At first, it might seem complicated, but our experienced pool and patio contractors will guide you through each step, ensuring precision and quality. Before installing the pavers, we will add a fine sand bedding layer for the pavers to sit on. Once squared away, and all the pavers are laid during, we can cut in any in-lays and add any borders.

Concrete edge applied to the exposed perimeter followed by polysand application. Keep into consideration, the process of creating a beautiful paver project is that the it will look messy before it looks great. The construction process will leave dust and small debris in the pool, no problem for your pool company to clean out. At last, you’ll have a stunning pool patio that perfectly complements your outdoor space.

I just had my patio done and from start to finish everything went amazing. From the moment they came for an estimate, to the moment they finished, everything went smoothly. All the workers were professional and worked so fast. There were no hidden costs, no surprises. Kristina in the office keeps you informed step by step from the point they send the estimate, selecting the brick, start of the project and even throughout the project. She even sent photos of different color combinations as I was indecisive at first. Can't wait to enjoy my backyard with family and friends this summer. Will definitely be using them for future projects to come. Home projects can be stressful and feel like a chore between companies not showing up for estimates, hidden costs, poor workmanship, etc. That was not the case with James, Kristina and the rest of the crew. They made it feel like a breeze!

Affordable Patio is an amazing company! From the estimate, to the install and the clean up. We went online and more or less got a price on our own. We then scheduled an appointment with James, Kristina answered the phone and all of our questions, she’s was polite, knowledgeable and courteous! James came to give us an estimate and was able to figure out a way for us to get a fire pit! We always dreamed of a fire pit! When the install was getting done, the crew was courteous and walked us threw every step and cleaned up like we never had any work done! 5 ⭐️ I love them and recommend them to everyone!

From the initial email that I sent for a quote, to the meeting with James, to the final finished project, I have nothing but excellent things to say about this company. It was an absolute pleasure working with Kristina throughout this whole process. She was very attentive and very quick with responses and questions that I had. Joe and his crew did beautiful work on my patio. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a backyard transformation.

Recently had a patio done 18x 35 in size . The crew that came was one of the best that I have seen . They all worked as a team . The lead guy joe was great , explained every detail that was going to happen . They worked together and completed the job in a day and a half . The bob cat did rip up some grass but they brought in top soil and leveled. the lawn to repair the damage . Clean up was just as good . The garbage was placed in bags , removed the dirt from the driveway . Filled the track marks with top soil . Did a great job and would use them again . The entire process was painless .

James, Kristina and their work crew did an amazing job. They not only did our backyard they also did stone work on the front of our home and of course our front porch. The crew always cleaned up after their work day.. We couldn't be happier with how our home turned out!
