We Can't Believe the Results!!

We just applied Cool around our swimming pool and can’t believe the results! We were somewhat skeptical, but the concrete around the pool is significantly cooler than the adjoining sidewalk. We found the product very easy to work with too. We love it! Thanks!

Other Features of our Cool Paint

Cool Pool Deck Paint Colors

Available cool paint colors: Tint the 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 or another cool paint for pool decks. Please refer to the paint charts and educational videos for the most current recommendations on choosing the pool deck colors for your application.

Disclaimer: For 10 years COOL has been found to reduce the temperature of bare concrete by up to 38% on in-ground concrete slabs. If heat reduction is a priority for you, please consider choosing one of the many cool deck colors in 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.

YES! Cool can be applied over existing KoolDeck Surfaces!

Thinking about what kind of paint you should add to COOL!?

We’ve assembled a list of recommended paints that are compatible. We recommend a satin to semi-gloss sheen, however any sheen is compatible with our coatings. Please call us with further questions! (888) 776-2242

Why COOL Paint for Pool Decks?

Applying the Cool paint to your concrete pool deck is the solution for those who are tired of burning their feet on hot concrete. We see it all the time – people running from their chairs to the pool because the concrete is so hot. Our products do much more than cool and resurface pool decks, though. This paint for cool deck provides a non-slip surface, repairs and resurfaces concrete, and can be tinted to any color you desire. This product is a DIY project that makes getting a “cooldeck” for pools easy.

Encore Coating’s cool paint for pool decks is a unique and innovative solution for those looking to upgrade their outdoor living space. COOL paint is specially designed to reflect the sun’s rays, reducing the temperature of the deck’s surface and making it comfortable to walk on even on the hottest summer days. Additionally, it provides a slip-resistant surface that ensures safety for those walking around the pool.

This paint is easy to apply and comes in a variety of colors, allowing homeowners to customize the look of their cooldeck. With its durable and long-lasting finish, Encore Coating’s cool paint is an excellent investment for anyone looking to enhance their outdoor space.

A Pool Deck Coating That Stays Cleaner.

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

A Durable Pool Deck Coating.

Our chemistry develops a strong, molecular bond with the concrete, ensuring against peeling and chipping. Cool™ will also repair concrete, filling in cracks up to 1/8″ and sealing them permanently. When it’s time, our coating can withstand a rigorous pressure washing long after other cooldeck 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 deck paints and 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.

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

The Best Pool Deck Coating Available.

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! We love the unique cool pool deck colors our customers choose: shades of white, grey, tan, and even yellow. It can be rolled on with ordinary paint equipment or, if desired, can be sprayed and trowled to produce an architectural finish. In any case, it 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, Our pool deck coating 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?

You have found the only pool deck paint coating on the market that keeps your pool deck cool on hot summer days. It can even 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.

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

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

Cool Paint Coverage:

Our 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 Our Pool Deck Paint 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!

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?

The Smart Choice for Pool Deck Paint and Concrete Paint

For many pool owners, selecting the ideal cool paint for their deck can be a difficult process. Most paints become scorching hot and slick when wet – not to mention they don’t even last an entire year! Before COOL!, there was no such thing as the perfect coating solution that didn’t cause more problems than it solved.

With its attractive finish, our non-slip concrete paint won’t heat up or get slippery – so you have found your ultimate match in terms of painting your pool deck!

Encore Coatings’ COOL! is a high-quality concrete paint that provides several benefits for any concrete surface. This unique concrete paint is specially designed to reduce surface temperatures by up to 38%, which makes it ideal for outdoor areas that are exposed to direct sunlight. Additionally, it also provides a long-lasting and durable finish.

COOL! is easy to apply and can transform any dull, gray concrete surface into a vibrant and attractive one. If you want to protect and beautify your concrete surfaces while keeping them cool, then our concrete paint is the perfect solution.

Concrete Paint for Steps

If your home or business has concrete steps, consider non-slip concrete paint for your outdoor steps. Ensure your family and visitors are safe by adding non-slip concrete paint to your concrete steps and sidewalks.

Concrete Paint for Patios

When choosing non-slip concrete paint for a concrete patio, use COOL! because of its unlimited tinted colors. This gives you the flexibility to match your patio’s design. If you have patio furniture, try to select an extra durable non-slip concrete paint and sealant for your patio.

39 reviews for Cool Pool Deck Coating – Kit (5-gallon mixing pail with Cool Coating)

  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

    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. Thomas

    Best boat cleaner ever! Cleaned years of mold, grime and dirt from the seat cushions of my boat. Did a great job on the hull. This is my new go-to product.

  31. Jimmy Card

    Cool deck triple crown
    This is an EXCELLENT product, works as advertised. The customer service is 2nd to none !! They answer the phone or text almost 24-7 Easy instructions, great videos. Cleaned it one day and coated the next. I only covered my immediate pool deck the areas I didn’t do will burn my feet the cool deck well…..Is exactly that COOL !! Do yourself a favor and and get it you won’t be disappointed I promise.

  32. Jason Hoffman

    We had a new pool put in and the contractor did a horrible job choosing the concrete color. It was a reddish color like you might see on an Arizona roof and it was faded out almost immediately. I did some research and finally settled on the Cool for Pools product package. I watched the videos. I called Encore for help before I got started to make sure I was on the right track. They could not have been more helpful even though I was probably a bit of a pest with multiple calls. I drove my wife crazy talking about the steps. In the end, we applied this to 6-month-old concrete, and we just could not be happier with the results. The surface looks fantastic, it is cooler than our existing cement patio on hot days, and it changed our feeling about our pool. There were a few other options that I was considering, but I hit a home run with Encore Coatings and the Cool for Pool project bundle.

  33. Toby McCaughey

    Let me start by stating that I do not write reviews for anything, ever. However, I struggled with the decision to give this product a try and wanted to reach people struggling with the decision weather this even works as advertised. I waited until now to even write this review as I applied this to our pool deck last fall. By the time it was applied, the brutally hot full sun days were behind us here in Georgia. I was VERY skeptical as I could not seem to find anyone putting out actual numbers if this worked as advertised. At worst this could be the most expensive paint additive available, or at best this could be the miracle solution. In my opinion, this covers the latter category perfectly. This is even better than I had hoped, and our concrete never gets hot enough to be uncomfortable even after a full day in full sunlight. It was worth the price and effort. This was the best decision I could have made. The only thing I might change if I were to apply again is we went with an off-white grey. It can be a little bright when you first walk out, and I may have chosen a few shades darker to lessen this, but it would probably not cool as amazing as it does now. Even with going a little lighter than we should have, I do not have an ounce of regret. The support is awesome, as I did call and spoke with them a couple of times. Thank you for this product!

  34. Ronnie Pate

    Encore Coating Cool Deck is the best product for resurfacing pool decks that I have found. The ability to use any color, great pricing and support only makes the product even better. Jeff Jr has always been available to answer my questions (which can be a lot 🤦‍♂️).

    Our customers love the look, the safety and quality of this product.

  35. Matt

    My pool is in Sunny Phoenix Arizona. 2 years after application I couldn’t be happier. I can stand barefoot on the pool deck in full sun on the hottest day of the year. That feat was not possible on the old bare cool deck. It has held up beautifully, still looks brand new, Easy to clean (the product filled a lot of the nooks and crannies dirt would collect in), just spray it off to remove the dust. The texture is great and the color turned out almost exactly as I hoped. It is a bit of a guessing game as to how light or dark it will be due to mixing your chosen gallon of paint with 2.5 gallon of white product. Luckily, with 2 coats, you can lighten or darkest the second coat to get the look you want. I suppose you could get a really good idea by buying a pint of the color you choose and mixing it with white in a ratio of 1 part color to 1.5 parts white to see what you get and then adjust your color from there.

  36. cdaffin

    I purchased this product over 2 years ago and did not want to write a review until it had been down a while. after two summers and winters i will have to say this is an excellent product and would recommend this product highly to anyone it has held up well not hard to put down and the service was great.

  37. anton

    Great Product

  38. Jennifer

    Buy Cool! Contact them about all your questions up front to make your application easier. The customer support is amazing! We had to wait over 10 months from the time we decided to use the product until schedules, temperature and weather aligned to apply it. The lanai floor is MUCH improved. I’m no longer embarrassed by it. A few minor imperfections are related to the initial state of the floor and our patch job (ask your questions in advance). Most important was the temperature reduction for South Florida summers, dog paws and human feet. We did choose a lighter than desired color to ensure we got the best cooling properties. We used 5 kits for about 750 sq ft, but we had to use a third coat as we worked the second coat too much and saw too many roller marks. You won’t be disappointed with Cool! for Pools or the fantastic customer support.
