Stamped Concrete Pool Deck

Part 1: Forming and Prep

Hi Everyone!

We just installed and awesome stamped concrete pool deck for a customer in Freeport, Maine, which by the way is home to L.L. Bean Store, a famous retail outlet.

This first video in this 4 part series is about how we prep and form the pool deck patio for the pour.

On this pool deck we had to form the coping around the pool as well as the exterior forms. We used the Z-Poolforms system for the concrete coping.

The coping forming is quite an art form in itself. There's nobody in my area who forms with this system so it sets us apart from the competition. It's really a great system and is easy to form with once you learn how.

Check out the video to see how we formed this massive pool deck, then be on the look out for the remaining videos in the series, Part 2 pouring the pool deck, Part 3 stamping the concrete, Part 4 sawing, cleaning, and sealing the concrete.


Monday I posted a video showing us pouring a concrete floor for a new garage. This is a 16' x 22' garage floor.

If you just learning or if you are thinking of pouring your own garage floor, you'll want to check out this video also.


P.S.I've started a private facebook group to share more insights and valuable information about what I do on an every day basis in my business.

If you'd like to be part of this exclusive group the link is below to join. It'll only be available for a couple weeks and is free to join.

The group will be a way for you to ask me and other concrete'ers questions and share out tips and techniques with each other.
