Enhancing Outdoor Spaces with a Custom Swimming Pool Deck

In the community of Gardendale, Alabama, a homeowner faced a dilemma with their above-ground pool. The existing deck was not only small and aging, but it also posed safety concerns and lacked the space needed for entertaining. Moreover, the obstructive railing design detracted from the scenic view of their backyard, prompting them to seek a more elegant and functional solution.

At Branham Services, we take pride in transforming outdoor spaces into safe, stylish, and functional areas. For this project, we worked closely with the homeowner to design a custom deck that would address their concerns and elevate their poolside experience. Together, we decided on a spacious main deck area with 360-degree access to the pool, complemented by a sleek cable railing system that ensured safety without compromising the view.

Designing the Perfect Pool Deck

The initial phase of the project involved detailed discussions with the homeowner to understand their needs and preferences. It was crucial to create a deck layout that would not only provide ample space for relaxation and entertainment but also enhance the overall aesthetics of the backyard.

We proposed a large, main deck area that would offer unrestricted access to the pool from all sides. This design would ensure that the deck served as a central hub for gatherings, providing ample space for guests to move around and enjoy the pool. The homeowner was particularly excited about the idea of using a cable railing system, which would maintain an open, airy feel and allow unobstructed views of the surrounding landscape.

Navigating Challenges with Precision

Every project comes with its unique set of challenges, and this one was no exception. One of the primary obstacles was the inherent shape mismatch between the square deck structure and the round pool. Achieving a seamless integration required meticulous planning and execution.

Our solution involved constructing a series of small deck frames that provided the necessary support while allowing the deck boards to overhang just enough to create a continuous circular design around the pool. This approach required precision and attention to detail, but it ultimately resulted in a flawless and visually appealing deck.

Embracing New Technologies: The Cable Railing System

Another challenge we faced was the implementation of a new cable railing system. While we had experience with various railing systems, this particular one was new to our team. However, we were confident in its potential to provide superior functionality and aesthetics.

The learning curve for the new system was steep, but our team was committed to mastering its installation. The effort paid off, as the cable railing not only enhanced the safety of the deck but also preserved the open, unobstructed views that the homeowner desired. The sleek, modern design of the railing added a touch of sophistication to the overall structure.

Delivering a Safe and Stylish Outdoor Space

Safety is always a top priority in our projects, and this pool deck was no different. The final structure was designed to provide a secure environment for the homeowner and their guests, while also offering a visually pleasing and comfortable space for leisure and entertainment.

The combination of the spacious deck layout and the innovative cable railing system created an outdoor oasis that met all the homeowner’s needs. The new deck was not only a functional improvement but also a significant enhancement to the property’s aesthetic appeal.

The Homeowner’s Satisfaction

The true measure of our success is the satisfaction of our customers. In this case, the homeowner was thrilled with the transformation of their pool area. The new deck provided the perfect blend of safety, functionality, and style, making it an ideal space for entertaining and relaxation.

Their positive feedback and appreciation for our work reaffirmed our commitment to excellence in every project we undertake. At Branham Services, we strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and deliver results that they can enjoy for years to come.
