Does anyone have a pool deck made out of pavers? If so, are you happy with it? Does it get hot? If you were happy with the company that did it, can you please share the name.

We are planning to resurface our poll and deck. We would like to use pavers for the deck, but the price the pool companies quote is pretty high. A friend recommended we use a landscape company, so I am looking for recommendations.

Also, do you know if we would do the pool or deck first?

I don't have a pool decking with pavers, but do have a patio and walkways and they get way too HOT to have around a pool I would think. It would take the skin off your feet. We wet ours down to try to cool it cuz we have to walk across it to and from the pool area. Stick to the tried and true kooldeck and similar products that are not as hot.

Agree with Ponderosa. I'd use pavers only for areas where you are likely to walk with footwear on. Any place where you may be walking in bare feet requires a cooler material. If you really want pavers, make them light in color -- maybe travertine.

I personally would not even get "light colored" pavers as decking around a pool. Even light colored concrete is too hot to walk on during the summer. Ouch! I definitely suggest getting a "cool deck" material/coating. Your feet will thank you!

I've heard light colored stones don't get as hot, does anyone have any experience with those?
