(Why Kilnfired Adobe is the Perfect Surface)
Because it is reflective, slightly convex, and holds moisture.
It doesn't show stains or dirt. Only minimal hosing off is needed
Looks great after years of weathering.
Fired, non-skid surface prevents slips and slides.
Natural material with soft, pastel earth-tone patina created during
kiln-firing picks up all the colors of the landscape.
Comparable or less than most custom decks, plus there's no upkeep
Doesn't require steep sloping to drain, so patios and pool decks join
naturally at grade.
Adobe patio decks flow to pool areas without the usual expansion joints.
Headers, walkways and walls, all of adobe brick, merge elegantly.
Adobe decks don't require frequent hosing. They absorb a lot of pool
splash. Thus adjacent plants don't get over-watered.
Adobe brick has a down-home, southwestern feeling. The same kilns
fire pinto adobe roof tiles of the same materials. Decking with adobe
brick creates a fine architectural continuity and landscape ambiance.
Thirty years after the first adobe pool deck installations, the owners
of Kilnfired Adobe, Inc. still get referrals from their initial customers.
With over a half million of feet laid, we continue to enjoy the product
and its placement.
