If you have an older pool, you might consider pool resurfacing as a way to repair damage or other problems that may have developed over the years. Or, you may just want to update the look of your pool. It’s amazing how just how much resurfacing your pool interior can change the overall appearance of the pool. With so many different materials / options to choose from, resurfacing your pool can really make a statement.
Pool Resurfacing Materials
There are several materials that are commonly used for pool resurfacing: pebble, quartz, and tile. Depending on your budget, pebble or quartz might be a better choice, because they can fix some of the problems that can be associated with plaster. Here is a comparison of these materials:
- A pebble surface for your pool is actually referring to a pebble aggregate that is mixed with a plaster surface. The advantages to this type of pool resurfacing is the fact that the pool surface is stain resistant, and a variety of color schemes are available which will determine the shade of water in your pool. When a pebble surface is installed correctly, it can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years with proper maintenance.
- Another long lasting solution is quartz, which usually has the same life as the pebble resurfacing option: 15 to 20 years. Like pebble, quartz gives you the ability to have a durable, stain resistant surface with a variety of colors to choose from. Many people enjoy the look and feel of quartz over pebble as it provides a smooth feeling under your feet.
- Tile is becoming more popular for pool resurfacing, because it offers a great way to create a luxurious look for your swimming pool. If you want your pool to make a statement, then tile is the way to go. There are many types of tile available so you can choose the color and style that best fits your home architecture and design.
