Laying Deck Tiles?

Most people look to concrete or wood when planning their deck, but you can mix things up by choosing beautiful deck tile.

How durable is kool deck compared to concrete for instance?

I have seen Kool-Deck by Mortex last over 20 years if done properly. Kool-Deck only works on brand new concrete as it is applied the same day the concrete is poured and MUST be done by an experienced installer. If the concrete is already there then use one of the polymer modified "spraydecks." "Preferred" is a good brand to use. Spraydecks are not as cool as Kool Deck but at least it works on existing concrete.

Other than cooler deck temps what are the significant differences between Kool Deck and Concrete Deck and which is better for the money?

Good question on pool decks. Regular concrete vs a "Kool Deck" brand surface will address two or more features you can add to your swimming pool deck. But lets first answer your question, a "Kool Deck" (brand name) product will be cooler due to both the highs and lows of the surface of the product and the actual Kool Deck additive which reflects heat, and is much cooler than concrete. Kool Deck surface has a custom look to it also and many color choices to further enhance its look. Your cooler colors are most desired for a "cool deck". If the decorative products or hi tech goodies are in your budget go for it, after all your buying the pool to enhance your life and have fun. good swimming

Do you have any major tips on building a deck on the ground, with existing concrete base?

First you got to make sure that the ground is level. I would replace the concrete base of the patio deck. then you will have to decide if you want a wooden deck, structural plastic ( highly recommended ) or just leave it the concrete slab. You would need to build a base for ventilation so the wood wont rot. From there you can start building the posts and boards.

Can you replace coping on vinyl liner pool with stone?

Afraid not. Vinyl liner pools are built using "concrete receptor coping" into which the deck is poured. It also contains the "bead receptor" that the vinyl liner attaches to. Actually YES it can. You would want to do this during a liner replacement but it can be done. You would have to remove the concrete from around the perimeter of the pool, remove/ replace the "concrete receptor coping" with bead receiver, aluminum extrusion, form/pour a bond beam, then lay your stone. Not really an easy do it yourself job but it can be done.
