Love the pool deck. What is the material?

Yes, stamped concrete is one option. There are also concrete coatings that are specifically made to be about 15 degrees cooler than natural stone while mimicking the look of stone. I would talk to a local concrete contractor that has been properly vetted, and ask about these concrete coating products. Some trade names about which I am familiar are "Cool Deck" and "Sundek". There are also manufactured paver systems that purport to stay cooler than natural materials. One company that manufactures this system is Artistic Pavers: http://www.artisticpavers.com/. Good Luck!

Quest has a product in many colors.. it is similar to what Platinum Poolcare was referring to. A stamped rubberized concrete with a 5 to 10 year warranty. Hydro-stop is what my company uses. Great stuff, for almost any project. best of luck with your project

I have no clue what this woman is saying but I think the project is great. I'm a landscape architect in MD and like the way you incorporated the water jets into the paving joint. I know that can be a tricky detail.

Hello, and thank you for the inquiry. This was a pool that was constructed on an existing house, so I don't have the information on the windows.

Who makes the Cobalt pool interior? I am assuming it is not Pebble Tec.

Hello, and thank you for the inquiry. Could you clarify the question? If it pertains to the exterior paint color of the house, we would not be in a position to answer that question as the house was existing and we designed and constructed the swimming pool.

Hello, and thank you for your comments. To answer your question: Yes, it is certainly possible to heat a pool using invisible solar power, or any of the other available solar heating methods like Photovoltaic cells, Solar Cells, or other new technologies that are available. We have not used therma-hexx before, however. Thank you again for your inquiry.
