If you’ve decided to have a court installed on your property, you may think that you are restricted to your creative choices. You may assume that certain courts have to look a certain way. Fortunately, this isn’t the case. You do have freedom in the design process of your court surfacing! Here are some things you need to know about how to create the perfect court for you.
What Kind Of Sports Do You Play?
The first consideration when installing a court is the kind of sport you plan to use it for. You could have a tennis court installed, or a basketball court, or pickleball, or perhaps you don’t want to pick just one sport, so you go with a multi-sport court. Once you’ve picked your sport, you can move on to customizations.
What To Know About Graphics
Graphics in a court are a fantastic way to personalize it. You can choose to keep standard options and colors, or you can make them your own.
Every court needs striping to meet sport specifications. If you’re doing a multi-sport court, you can use ghost-lines for the multitude of sports you’ll use the court for. You pick the prominent sport while ghost lines offer the court specifications for other sports. You can pick the colors, whether you want a different color for each sport or traditional white stripes or what have you.
Graphics involve striping, yes, but you can also choose to have logos or other designs on your court. These can be whatever you want; people often opt for the logos of their favorite sports teams, their company, or their school. These logos can bring your court together, adding personality and cohesiveness.
Picking The Colors Of Your Court
The colors of your court surface can also be customized to suit your ideal court. Just because tennis courts are commonly green doesn’t mean yours has to be. Court surfacing companies can offer you an abundance of colors to choose from, ranging from a vibrant purple to soft grey with hundreds of other options that can be made from mixing colors like an artist. Your court can be black and grey; orange and blue; whatever customization you want.
Pitching Your Vision
Once you’ve decided to have a court installed, you can call a professional court surfacing company, like Utah Court Surfacing. You’ll tell them about the sport or sports you will use your court for, your vision, and ask any questions you might have for them. You’ll be asked questions too about the area you want the court installed, and the professionals can go over any customizations you may want with you. They can show you what those will look like, so you can adjust accordingly if what you pitched doesn’t look quite right to what you want.
What You Can Expect From The Process
After you’ve called the court surfacing company and gone through your initial ideas, some professionals will come to inspect the area you want the court installed. They do this to see if the area needs any kind of repairs and to check the measurements to match them against the court specifications. If you have weeds or cracked concrete or any such issue, the company will need to take care of those before installation in order to ensure a good surface that the court can be installed on.
Once going over any needed repairs or resurfacing and the size of the area, you can expect another meeting to finalize customizations and make sure that both you and they understand what is needed and what is wanted and come to an accord.
After that, you can move on to the actual installation of your perfect court! Courts are made of concrete or asphalt and then have the court surfacing product applied over top, after the concrete or asphalt has cured. The court surfaces Utah Court Surfacing uses are acrylic-based, which means that not only will your court surface last 4-6 years before the wear and tear requires another coating to be applied, but that it’s also environmentally friendly.
