If you have a swimming pool, you will eventually have the pleasure of experiencing pool resurfacing. Pool resurfacing is the process of removing the current pool surface, whether that is tile, plaster, or fiberglass, and replacing it with a new surface. The pool resurfacing process can be lengthy, especially if weather interferes with the process. Typically, pool resurfacing takes between five and seven days and we recommend having it done during the fall or winter to allow you to use your pool during peak summer months.
There are several products to choose from when deciding what to resurface your pool with. Typically pool resurfacing is done with tile, aggregate, or plaster.
- Tile – There are many beautiful tile options to choose from. Some popular choices are glass, stone, porcelain, or even hand painted tile. Mixing these tile types is a great option as well.
- Aggregate – This type of pool resurfacing product is made by mixing different materials together like, glass, stones, and cement. You can have it left as an exposed or an unexposed surface. An exposed surface will have a rough and bumpy finish.
- Plaster – Plaster is a mixture of white cement, water, marble sand or limestone, and a few other products. This product is a popular option as it is budget friendly. Plaster can be dyed to a color of your choosing. Plaster will need maintenance to keep algae at bay and an acid wash every several years.
