Available colors: Tint the Cool Kit to ANY color imaginable by adding one gallon of mid-priced acrylic paint to the kit.  Don’t buy the most expensive paint and don’t buy the cheapest – just a mid-grade in a satin or semi-gloss sheen!  Do not use a paint-&-primer-in-one product.  The color match is perfect and you’ll be thrilled with the outcome!  We guarantee it!

Disclaimer: For 10 years COOL has been found to reduce the temperature of bare concrete up to 38% on in-ground concrete slabs. If heat reduction is a priority for you, please consider choosing a light pastel color or the typical colors often found around a pool. Darker earth tones and even shades of gray can contain black pigments which are not conducive to a cool walking surface. Encore Coatings is not responsible for marginal heat reduction due to environmental anomalies or negligence to the above disclaimer.

A Pool Deck Coating That Stays Cleaner.

Unlike most pool deck coatings, Cool™ doesn’t rely on a profile of crevices and cavities to stay cool, so there’s nowhere for dirt and unsanitary lotions to reside for weeks and sometimes months. Cool’s™ uniform, slip-resistant surface is easily cleaned with soap and water so your pool deck is easy to maintain.  Apply Encore’s SealBack Nano-Acrylic Sealer for extra protection and cleanliness!

A Durable Pool Deck Coating.

Cool™ chemistry develops a strong, molecular bond with the concrete, insuring against peeling and chipping. Cool™ will also repair concrete, filling in cracks up to 1/8″ and sealing them permanently. When it’s time, Cool™ can withstand a rigorous pressure washing long after other coatings would have begun to peel or chip when subjected to the same conditions.

A Slip-Resistant Pool Deck Coating.

Safety around pool areas is a top priority for property owners. Achieving the perfect balance between comfort and safety is a difficult task for pool coatings. Everyone wants to have a safe, slip-resistant pool deck coating, but too much slip-resistance could be a bad thing. Cool’s subtle texture is very comfortable, and still meets and exceeds commercial (ADA) safety requirements for slip-resistance – even when it’s wet.

An Affordable, Cost-Effective Pool Deck Coating.

Given the benefits, you’d expect Cool™ to be considerably more expensive than other options, but it’s not. It’s actually the most affordable – especially if you consider it’s superior service life. Depending on the condition of your concrete deck, all materials necessary to complete the job will typically average $1-$2 per square foot. Your investment is only pennies per square foot when spread over the service life!

The Best Pool Deck Coating Available.

Coating that keeps concrete cool

Atlanta, GA

Add it all up and Cool™ is the best overall choice when it comes to solving the issue of hot concrete. Since color comes from the paint you add to the kit, your decorative options are endless!

Cool™ can be rolled on with ordinary paint equipment or, if desired, can be sprayed and trowled to produce an architectural finish. In any case, Cool™ dries to produce a hard, durable coating that will provide decades of service.

When you choose Cool™, your decision is backed by a Lifetime Warranty – the best in the business. Where other pool deck coatings offer limited features and benefits, Cool™ provides every feature and benefit on your list. Since applying Cool™ is no more than a 1.5 day process in most cases, why not act now?

** Do not use paint that contains a primer.

Cool textured pool surface

Cool can be rolled over existing Kooldeck to maintain a cool, textured surface.

You have found the only pool deck paint coating on the market that keeps your pool deck cool on hot summer days.  Cool can be applied over existing Kool-Deck* and cement-based pool deck coatings to give them a fresh appearance that either maintains or develops a cooling feature.  It can also be applied to bare concrete surfaces.

Cool’s proprietary formulation can reduce heat build-up by up to 38%! Tint to any color you desire by adding one gallon of acrylic paint** to the kit. You’ll be amazed at how the color matches the color you choose.

Cool also completes minor repairs to your deck, filling in small cracks (1/8″ or less) and helps prevent further deterioration of the surface.

Cool™ is a two-coat application.  Most pool decks can be completed in one day. Apply one to two coats of clear acrylic sealer to protect and increase ease of cleaning.

Cool™ is the only product of its type on the market and is guaranteed for as long as you own your home. Commercial projects are warranted for ten years!

Creating a Cool Pool Deck Surface is Easier Than You Think.

Simply mix one gallon of acrylic paint** (your color choice) to the kit and apply Cool™ with an ordinary 3/8″, 1/2″ or 3/4″ nap paint roller to a clean, prepared surface.  Cool dries within 30 minutes.  Apply a second coat.  Then a clear sealer.

Coverage:  400 square feet (1 coat).  Coats required – 2.  Completed coverage per kit is approximately 200 sq.ft..  For example, if you have 1,000 square feet of deck to coat, you would order 5 kits.

Cool’s revolutionary technology leaves behind a comfortable, yet skid-resistant walking surface that’s ADA-compliant – even when it’s wet!  Got a commercial project?  Download the test results for your file.

There’s a reason why Cool™ is becoming the coating of choice for water parks, hotels, condominiums, apartments, and countless backyard pools. Start enjoying the benefits of this remarkable coating today!

How it Works:

Unlike other coatings that attempt to reflect heat up and away from the pool deck (which is a bad idea when you and your family are on it), Cool uses a natural Law of Science to pull the heat into the soil below the pool deck where it then dissipates.   This technology not only keeps your feet comfy and cool, it keeps the entire environment cooler!

How Cool! Pool Deck Coating Works

Cool™ has been proven to reduce heat buildup by up to 38% or more!

Cool™ can be tinted to any color by adding one gallon of exterior acrylic (water-based) paint** in your color choice to the kit. An unlimited possibility of colors allows you to express your creativity and blend your pool deck into your environment.

Companies, schools, hotels, and hundreds of other organizations love the idea of a custom colored pool deck.  What would you do with an infinite color palette?

  1. Annie F.

    Wonderful product! Recommended by my nephew who had used it and raved about it. I can’t believe how much cooler it made my pool deck. I can actually walk on it in the middle of July without scorching my feet. I recommend this product to anyone wanting to cool their concrete down and improve the feel and look of their pool surround.

  2. J. Holston

    I love this product! I applied it over my 8-yr. old pool deck surface and the results were dramatic to say the least. It’s the perfect product to upgrade my outdoor living space. It makes me a proud homeowner again! Thanks for a great product!

  3. Thomas R.

    I really like this product. I was a bit skeptical about the claims but everything so far is true. It feels great on bare feet and the color match was actually perfect. I gave it 4 stars since it hasn’t had time to prove itself but I would recommend it to anyone who wants to have something besides a painted pool deck.

  4. Becki T.

    Thanks for providing such a great option for us. We were so discouraged at the price contractors wanted to charge us for their options and then we found your product. Cool is simply fabulous! It was easy for my husband to apply and our pool area is gorgeous!

  5. Frank

    My customer wanted to spray the product and knock it down with a trowel. Wasn’t sure how that would work, but I tried it and the results were really neat. Doesn’t build up as high as other knock downs, so it’ll be easier to clean. The customer was happy. I like the fact that you add paint to it for color. My former supplier had coatings, but only in a few colors. It’s good to be able to offer more options. Customer was pleased so I’m pleased. Company was good to work with. Very knowledgeable on prep work.

  6. Rebecca Fullerton

    We just put this product down and it’s everything we wanted. The texture is perfect for bare feet. We used to have to pour water from a can before we got out of the pool because the concrete was too hot, but that’s over. I’m not sure “how” this product works – but it works!

  7. Bernard Loveright

    I found this product easy to apply. Best of all, I did it myself and saved thousands of dollars over having it professionally done. It definitely stays cooler than the concrete did. My kids and wife are happy about that part. It filled in the small cracks and brightened up the place. I gave it four stars instead of five because it did tend to dry a little fast for me.

  8. Robert Tillman

    Very easy to use. After cleaning my concrete I rolled out two coats of Cool and then sealed it with a sealer that I picked up at a home center. The result looks great. Lots of compliments from folks who had seen the deck prior to me applying Cool. Highly recommend.

  9. R. Bell

    Cool was a great choice for our POA. It was easy for us to apply it and it turned out great. Didn’t break the bank. The company was super easy to work with and was responsive to the homeowner’s inquiries. We’ve had only great comments from the residents about the pool.

  10. David Cutright

    I was skeptical, but bought it because I had heard someone talking about it at a tradeshow. It was easy and straightforward to apply. It looks great. I’m still trying to understand how this stuff works. It was 104 degrees on the deck a few days ago and the surface wasn’t hot. I like it!

  11. Tab Marin

    Cool has become our “go-to” product for new and existing pool decks. Our customers love this product. It’s fast, so we’re off the job quicker – everyone’s happy with that. It looks great and our customers love the feel. This product has the perfect texture. Not too rough, but not too slick. The best feature is the cooling feature. It’s absolutely amazing. This summer, while rolling it out, the concrete was so hot, it was burning my feet through my boots. For grins, I took my boots off to apply the second coat to see how it’d feel. I put the entire second coat down in bare feet!! No complaints. The company is also very good at support and training, even though the product is easy to use. If you need a pool deck coating, choose this one!

  12. Daniel K.

    We had the product applied over our kooldeck and there’s a couple of spots where the product lifted. But I think that’s because the old coating lifted. Otherwise, it is a good product and it feels great on bare feet. I plan to touch the area up that peeled and it it stays down, I’ll be back to add the fifth star.

  13. Atlanta Pool Guy

    I did my first installation of Cool a few years ago. Since then, I’ve continued to offer it to customers over traditional knock-down finishes. They like the Cool. First, it’s easy to clean compared to knock-downs. Furniture doesn’t hurt it either. I routinely visit these jobs and they still look great. Good product for the money!

  14. Vernon Kilmer

    Have had the product on our pool deck for about 1.5 years. We’ve expanded the pool deck and need more coating so here I am. This product works. It keeps the temperature of the deck comfortable. It looks good. Very durable too.

  15. Quent C.

    Product looks and feels great. We hired a local contractor to put this product down. He and a helper finished the deck in two days – about 1/2 the time of what other contractors were estimating. We got a great deal and we’re very satisfied. If it would just warm up now!

  16. Deborah C.

    Love this product! Our son pressure washed the deck and my husband and I put Cool down in one day and it looks fantastic! The feel on bare feet is perfect! It has completely upgraded the pool deck area. We had a day in the 80s last week and the coating was almost cold. I want to see what it will do when it’s 95 outside, but so far, so gooood!

  17. Curtis T.

    I’m about to apply Cool to my fourth pool deck in as many years. Customers love this product because it works and is easy to keep clean. I love applying it. Very easy. Just always make sure you do a good job cleaning before you apply and things will work. You’ll love the result.

  18. Freddy P

    Happy to find this product. My son and I applied the coating a few weeks ago to my old worn pool deck. Today, it looks like a new deck. It filled in the cracks and left a very nice texture. Yesterday, it got up into the high 80s and I was amazed (like the other reviews I’ve seen) at how cool the deck stayed. Without Cool, we had to scurry across the deck because it was so hot. Neat product!

  19. Susan K

    We’ve now applied Cool to our second pool. This is the only product that I’ve been able to find that looks great, is easy to clean, and easy to apply. The best feature is the cooling feature. We love it! Our grandkids used to run from their chairs to the pool because the deck was sooo hot. Highly recommend to anyone with an old pool deck or one that stays hot.

  20. D. Rogers

    Our facility recently had Cool applied to the pool decks. The product was straighforward, easy to apply. We were able to reopen the decks to the residents 24 hours later, which was a big factor in our decision of what product to use. Another big factor was the 10 year warranty.

    The surface is easier to clean than the previous surface. It gave new life to the previous surface. And, best of all, it’s significantly cooler than the previous surface. Aside from the comments that we get on the look of the decks, the comments on how cool the deck is seems to be the big plus for our clients.

    All in all, we’re very satisfied!

  21. Vince Kappor

    Giving this product five stars was easy. It does exactly what it’s said to do. Went down easy. Looks great. Stays cool! I love it.

  22. Kelly W.

    We’ve used this product on several projects over as many years. We get rave reviews from our customers on how well the product improves the look of their decks. Cool is less expensive than other options, but is infinitely better in every comparison to typical pool deck toppings.

  23. Jason W.

    I live in New Mexico and decided to use this product. I applied it about three weeks ago. It has been hot here, so it was amazing to see how well the product cooled the concrete. Before, you could not stand on it in the middle of the day without having a water hose to cool the concrete down. Now, we walk around in bare feet – no problem! I really like this product. It was easy to apply, making it very affordable for us, and it looks like a pro put it down.

  24. Thomas Beezer

    Works great. Was easy to apply. Wish this company the best as they move forward. Excellent service!!

  25. B. Reiland

    Very good product. Completely renovated our worn out Kooldeck surface. Compared to other products that I evaluated, Cool left a comfortable, textured surface on the deck, which was nice, because I didn’t want to end up with a slippery surface.

    We have had metal furniture on the deck since it was completed. I’m very impressed with the durability of this product. Absolutely no scrape marks or sign of wear. It’s now been about 2.5 years since we applied the product and have no regrets about having used it. Love the fact that it keeps this southern exposed deck cool, too.

  26. B. Breinhardt

    Two years ago my husband and I applied this product to our pool deck and were very happy with the results. This past weekend, we emerged from hibernation to find our pool deck in wonderful shape. At the time we did the work, we only did the deck – not the sidewalks around the yard. We’re very happy with how the deck looks after a very hard winter and we’re buying more to do the sidewalks. Can’t wait to get the work done. This product does a fantastic job. Very affordable for what it does!

  27. C. Bertlaney

    We applied this product over our existing “Sundeck”. The application was easy, dried quickly and left a great finish. We applied two coats as directed and applied two coats of Sealback sealant. We couldn’t be happier. This is an excellent product line with great results. I would highly recommend this product. If you aren’t a do it yourself type person there are contractors installing this product. Encore saved us a lot of money as it is more affordable than the other products on the market. None of the other products have the lifetime warranty either…..just can’t say enough about this great product.

  28. Benji P.

    Outstanding product! Very satisfied with the result. We researched all of our options and this was by far the best value.

  29. Larry (verified owner)

    My deck looks great, and it really does keep the deck cooler. It also seems to be very durable as I accidently dragged patio furniture across it, and it showed no marks or damage. I recommend your product, but I am really impressed with your customer service. I am not a large contractor or company, just merely a homeowner trying some DIY improvement to my ugly pool deck. I am glad I found this product and this company. Many, many thanks.

  30. Brian V.

    I did my customer’s 1,500 square foot pool deck in under two days which allowed me to charge them less. I have used several major brands of pool deck coatings (not paints) and can say that this was the best experience yet with a coating. It took about half the time that other options would have required and that’s great for everyone but the thing that impressed me the most was how durable the coating was after just an hour of drying time. It was amazing! We were walking on it within 20 minutes and tried scratching it after an hour – we couldn’t! I’m pushing this product hard from this point on. It’s the best!

  31. Barbara G.

    We just complete a pool remodel 2 weeks ago and the product is simply amazing! Temp is already 100 in our area and the product delivers as promised! The pool deck is barely warm even in this heat. It looks great, texture is as promised. Followed the directions to a T and the result is better than we had hoped for. Thank you for a product that actually works as advertised!!

  32. Guy Z

    First of all I want to comment on the outstanding customer service at Encoe Coatings. I had an issue with the first kit that I mixed. I contacted Encore Coatings and Peggy resolved quickly. No questions asked, she sent a replacement kit which I received 2 days later.

    As for the Cool product, it was as good as advertised. I am not all that handy, but each step of the process was easy to complete. Now the concrete around my pool is cool and looks great.

    I highly recommend both Encore Coatings and Cool!
