With new and improved plaster technology in the pool industry, replastering your swimming pool is important to consider for a renovation project. White plaster, which has typically been used in the pool-building business, is outdated and can become damaged and aged quickly due to weather, corrosion and wear and tear over the years. The new aggregate plaster finishes provide durability and longevity that not only prevent damages to your pool but can add aesthetic value to it.
Certain companies have nixed the outdated pool finishes and have adopted and become licensed to install the most innovative plaster materials in the industry.
With new plaster technology offering a variety of options, replastering can give your pool an updated custom finish that can complement your home. There are several design options, such as the color and the texture of the cement. Adding or changing these elements will enhance your pool and give you the opportunity to upgrade and change the look of your back yard. The best option for variety, durability, texture and beauty is an aggregate finish. An aggregate is a white or colored plaster that is mixed with small pieces of different types of river stones, glass beads, quartz or granite. With these different elements available, you can mix and match colors and materials to give your pool its desired look. Choosing the right colors and blend pieces can create the effect of a bright and sparkling pool, a Caribbean-style pool, a lagoon-like pool and much more. These multiple finishes are offered through Pebble Tec and LX Glass, both of which are made to be comfortable and slip-resistant while also being durable and beautiful. Pebble Tec offers a phone app that allows you to see what the colors and materials will look like at different depths throughout your pool. This is a convenient tool to help you decide what finish looks best to you.
While cracks and other damage to a pool are definitely a concern and should be fixed, the most common reason for pool replastering comes from an aesthetic viewpoint. People usually choose to replaster their pools in order to revive the color or look. Plaster can get old, and as time passes the plaster in your pool becomes dull and stained.
Replastering your swimming pool does more than just change the look of your pool or fix damages. There are various benefits:
• Strengthening the structure of your swimming pool
• Increasing the life of your swimming pool
• Ensuring that your swimming pool works efficiently
• Changing the look of your back yard
• Increasing the value of your home
It is important to keep in mind that replastering your pool does not have to be a choice based solely on aesthetics. New plaster for your pool will increase the strength and the durability of your pool. Once your pool has been replastered, make sure you follow your pool contractor’s instructions on water chemistry and overall pool care to keep your pool looking pristine.
