It is usually best to apply non-skid epoxy concrete paint on the walkway and to the pool. This will hide minor errors in the construction and would also provide a better look for the pool as well as the safety of those walking near it. The epoxy paint will help in providing a non-skid pool deck surface. This type of paint would be available in many of the typical hardware stores in your neighborhood.

But if the repair to the pool deck and the surface is more significant, then actual resurfacing compound will have to be used instead of paint. When these types of compounds are used, the look of the pool and deck would be much improved. This will help to repair any minor cracks in the pool or pool deck.

But when the damage to the pool deck surface is severe, these compounds may not resolve the problem completely. Some times the damage to the pool deck may be severe enough that it cannot be repaired easily by simply applying the compound. In such cases we may have to approach pool restoration companies for their services. They fix the pools very professionally and their finishing will make the pool look its best.

The details of such service providers are available in almost all daily news papers or on the internet. It is always better to have the pool and pool deck in attractive and good condition because of the beauty and added value to the home. A little effort can go a long way for your pool deck and your homes equity.
