Dean and Derek head down to sunny Florida--land of a thousand backyard pools--to remake a cracked water-stained pool deck with a soft pebble-like material. It's an innovative and easy way to add a new surface over existing concrete. Dean and Derek start by properly preparing the old concrete patio, drawing out a two-color sunburst design, and marking it with styrofoam. They mix the colorful pebbles with a chemical bonding agent and then use some unusual tools to precisely apply the Pebble-flex material. With a little help from Jim Ficklin and his son Jason, Dean and Derek create a safe, attractive pool deck that adds a bounce to any homeowner's step.
