RollerRock Saves Another Pool Deck

Allen Stanfill knew his pool deck was in trouble. It was in really bad shape and needed some major help. However, he was ready to put in the work, and started by researching pool deck coating solutions on the Internet.

The Oneida, Tennessee homeowner was impressed with what he saw under reviews for RollerRock™. He figured if the product was rated for use in driveways, then it should be good for his pool deck. And he was right.

 

Careful Preparation

Before the cans of RollerRock were ever opened, Stanfill invested time to carefully prep his pool deck. He pressure washed the deck twice. He waited for three days of pure sunshine to assure the concrete was completely dry. Then he blew the deck off again.

Next he applied two coats of Kilz 2 primer. Even though RollerRock has a built-in primer, because his deck was in such bad shape he wanted to take this extra step.

After the primer was dry Stanfill measured out a thick stripe around the pool’s edge. He taped it off. Then came the RollerRock.

Rolling on RollerRock

“I applied four coats of Ivory for the striped area,” says Stanfill. “I want this level of coverage because I know the surface around the pool’s edge will get heavy usage. Then I retaped the Ivory paint strip so I could start applying the main color.”

After that Stanfill applied three coats of the Cinnamon RollerRock to the remainder of the pool deck. Once fully dry, he applied three coats the Hi-Build Ultra Sealer on the Ivory stripe area and two coats on the main deck.

Tips from a Homeowner

Having never worked with RollerRock before, Stanfill was surprised at how thick the product is.

“It’s a bit more difficult to roll on than you’d think,” says Stanfill. “Imagine peanut butter at room temperature. You have to be sure to mix it well several times in the bucket and roll it on very consistently.

“The roller supplied with the paint is good for the first coat. After that I used a ¾ nap cheap roller for the final coat. It makes it a little smoother on the feet.”

According to Stanfill, the RollerRock product makes his pool deck look 100% better than it did previously. “The difference is simply amazing,” says the homeowner. “Now we’re ready to start another project and we’ll use the same RollerRock in Cinnamon on the flooring for that project. This is a product that really makes a positive impact. It was definitely worth the investment.”
