If you are interested in building a swimming pool deck, there are a number of options for you to consider. If price is the biggest factor in your decision, you may want to consider either wood or concrete. Both of these options are fairly standard and they are less expensive than tile, rubber or some of the other pool deck surfaces. Between these two options, regular wood will generally be less expensive than a concrete deck. Concrete will wear little bit longer, but the initial cost will be cheaper if you opt to go with a wood deck.
