TENNIS COURT RESURFACING
Is your tennis court beginning to fade? Are there birdbaths all over the court? Is the concrete beginning to flake off? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, it may be time to repair and resurface your tennis court. Resurfacing is a cost-effective way to bring back the beauty and restore your court. It is important to note that all structural cracks will come back. If your court has a lot of cracks and structural problems, an asphalt overlay or concrete post tensioned overlay may be the best options. Merritt only uses the best products available for surfacing courts. These include Plexipave, Advantage, etc.
The following is our process to resurface a court:
Power wash and clean the court of loose debris, dirt, and algae.
Rout and fill cracks.
Scrape and remove loose coatings.
Patch all existing low areas or bird baths with court patch binder.
Squeegee-apply one filler/finish coat of acrylic resurfacer to level out the surface.
Squeegee-apply two coats of textured world class acrylic color coatings.
Mask and paint 2” white lines per USTA regulations.
POST-TENSIONED TENNIS COURT CONSTRUCTION
Post-tensioned concrete is the preferred method for new tennis court construction and rebuilding of old tennis courts. Merritt specializes in post-tension tennis court construction and can deliver a complete turnkey tennis facility. A cost-effective way to restore an existing court in bad condition is to do a concrete post-tensioned overlay. This prevents you from having to tear out the existing courts and allows for a brand-new surface.
The following are the reasons why post-tensioned tennis courts are the best option when it comes to building a tennis court:
Ability to span unstable soils
Increased resistance to settling and/or heaving
Elimination of cold joints around net posts and fence posts
Better uniformity of play
More controlled slope for drainage
Stable, attractive concrete edge
Lower maintenance costs. This is important if future access is limited by landscaping, structures, etc.
Eliminates the potential liability from structural cracking
Ability to construct over existing courts, thereby saving valuable resources associated with demolition and disposal
