Before you know it, daylight savings, thunderstorms and, yep you guessed it, Spring projects are here. Some folks are even thinking about getting the house ready to put on the market. Either way, your swimming pool decking may be showing signs of distress.
Chances are that water has gotten through the UV damaged caulking by now and winter freeze/thaw has the soil settled or eroded out of it's original place. There is also the possibility that the local moles have decided to tunnel through the area and displaced the soil, resulting in settlement. Either way, pesky trip hazards are now evident.
Now you've got some questions:
1. How much will it cost to replace a section of my pool decking?
Often times, in order to pour new small sections of concrete, there is a hefty minimum.
2. Will it match my existing pool deck?
If the existing pool deck is a few years old, there is a very good chance that the newly poured concrete color will not match the older.
3. Will it resettle?
Pouring heavy concrete, 140 lbs/cu ft, on already compromised soil could result in resettling.

Before beginning any pool deck repair project, the first and most important step is to figure out what caused the damage and then determine the best repair procedure for solving the problem . For the best results, you’ll need to remove all unsound concrete and fill in noticeable cracks before completing the repair.

As the other commenter brought up, determining what caused the initial sinking needs to be dealt with as well. In the case of pool decks, if the issue is water the foam based products stand up extremely well, if it's a settling issue it may simply require a follow up visit in a few years which is still far easier than replacing.
