Is your pickleball court in need of a facelift? If yes, then you should consider having your court resurfaced. Pickleball courts are generally painted or tiled surfaces, but they often become worn out over time. This causes players to slip and fall. The good news is our resurfacing services can help repair the damage done by years of use.

Resurfacing a pickleball court can be an easy way to ensure that your game stays fun and safe!

Materials Used When Resurfacing a Pickleball Court

Asphalt can lose its flexibility when it ages. This makes asphalt a lot less fun for players to enjoy. When the asphalt becomes too rigid, it may create a hazard for all players on the court. 

Asphalt that becomes rigid can also lead to cuts, bruises, and other minor injuries. 

When it is exposed to extreme weather conditions for a long time, outdoor pickleball courts can become more susceptible to warping and cracking. 

Over time, the seams between the tiles that make up the court can start to separate. Even if your court hasn’t been exposed to extreme weather conditions, resurfacing can help repair minor damage that has occurred over time. This can extend the life of a pickleball court, so you can play on it for a long time!

When repairing asphalt pickleball court surfaces, we recommend using Acrylic Resurfacer as its flexible properties allow it to conform to the contours of the existing surface. This means that the resurfacing will be able to provide a stable platform that won’t become cracked or warped after a short period of time.

 It also provides excellent adhesion to the existing surface and offers superior resistance to cracking during expansion and contraction cycles caused by changes in temperature.

Steps Taken Before Applying Resurfacer to the Pickleball Courts

Before applying any type of resurfacing material to a pickleball court, there are some steps that need to be taken first. These include:

1) Cleaning the Surface – Remove all debris from the surface before application. This includes dirt, grass clippings, leaves, etc.

2) Preparing the Surfaces – Make sure both sides of the court have been cleaned thoroughly. We recommend cleaning the entire area around the perimeter of the court. This will ensure that no loose gravel or other objects get stuck underneath the resurfacing material.

3) Priming – Apply a thin coat of acrylic primer on the entire court surface. This helps to seal the surface so that the resurfacing material does not stick to itself when applied.

4) Application – Apply the resurfacing material evenly across the court. Once this has been completed, wait approximately 24 hours before playing on the resurfaced court.

Necessary Weather Conditions for Pickleball Court Resurfacing

Before applying any resurfacing material, make sure the weather is warm enough. For example, if Acrylic Resurfacer is to be applied in the spring or summer months, the temperature must be above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and below 140. 

How Often to Resurface Your Pickleball Court

Another question people often ask is how often resurfacing is necessary. Although there are a wide variety of factors that determine when to repave a pickleball court, a good rule of thumb is to resurface your court every five years. 

If the court is for a professional court or for some important tournament, it is better to resurface the court more frequently. After all, you’re playing on it and spending money on it every week or month. So if you did your maintenance every five years and made a few changes now and then, this could cost you a lot of money when you prepare to resurface your court again in 5 years’ time.

But if it is only for your recreational pickleball court, it is not that important to resurface it every five years. After all, your court isn’t a professional one, so you are only going to use your pickleball court for recreational purposes.

Conditions That May Accelerate Pickleball Court Degradation

Here are some of the conditions that may accelerate pickleball court deterioration.

1. Age – The older the asphalt in your court, the more likely it is to crack and crumble. This means that every time you play on it, you’re putting yourself at risk for injury. 

2. Worn Tires – Ruts or grooves from old shoes can get into the asphalt after repeated play, gradually reducing the flexibility of the pavement.

3. Improper slope – The court surface must be level to prevent water from pooling in certain areas, which can lead to the breakdown of acrylic surfaces. 

4. Insufficient drainage system – Water has a tendency to accumulate if there are no proper drainage systems in place. If water pools up, the surface becomes more vulnerable to premature degradation.

6. Poor installation – If your pickleball court was improperly installed, it is likely to crack under pressure.

Contacting the right company is important when it comes to resurfacing your pickleball court because you’re entrusting a professional with an important job. You want to make sure that they know exactly how to prepare and apply the material so that your court looks good and lasts for years.
