All County Pools is committed to ensuring that your pool area is both architecturally sound and visually stunning. If you’re thinking about concrete pool resurfacing but you’re not sure how to get started, our team is here to answer your questions and ensure that the finished product is to your liking. You’ll learn about the popular choice for pool resurfacing materials depending on your design goals and the type of concrete pool you have.
Plaster As an Ideal Resurfacing Option
There are three main materials that are used to create or resurface a pool: plaster, aggregate, and tile.
Plaster is a combination of sand or marble aggregate, water, and white cement. Our team of qualified builders will apply the plaster to the structure of your pool with a trowel, which is a flat tool with a round edge. Although the plaster resurfacing mixture is usually white, you can request that it be dyed in the color of your choice.
Plaster is an affordable choice and gives your pool a classic look. However, the texture is rough and could be a breeding ground for algae. Speak with the All County Pools and Spa team about ways you can keep your resurfaced pool clean and safe.
A team member can also give you maintenance options to keep the plaster from cracking or staining. This resurfacing option could keep your pool looking great for up to a decade.
Aggregate Is a Popular Choice for Resurfacing
Aggregate enhances the aesthetics of the pool and you can choose glass beads or glass tile to accent the surface of the pool area. The glass can be mixed with the cement in place of sand to give the surface more texture and shine. Many pool owners choose this option because the glass creates a smooth surface that is comfortable to walk on. The more the aggregate is covered, the more pleasant the surface will be to the touch.
Pebbles and quartz can also be used to achieve this look, and the All County Pools and Spa team can polish the stones or leave them exposed depending on your style preference. Aggregate finishes tend to be a popular choice because they last longer than plaster. You can expect a quartz surface to last up to 12 years; pebbles could last for as long as two decades.
The Benefits of Tile-Resurfaced Swimming Pools
The tile surface finish is usually made from porcelain, but you can also choose glass or stone for this pool resurfacing option. Or, you can customize the surface by using a combination of these materials. If you decide to go with porcelain, you can choose from textured or glazed tiles, or you can select hand-painted tiles if you want the pool to look especially elegant.
For a natural and resort-like feel, surface materials like sandstone, granite or limestone will bring your design dreams to life. The tile is easy to clean and is especially durable, and glass tiles are UV-ray and heat-resistant so you and your loved ones can walk around the pool area safely.
