Just like anything else in your California home, your outdoor swimming pool may age and need some fixing up down the line. What that means is that from time to time, you may end up needing to resurface your pool even with great care and maintenance.
Luckily, there are plenty of options you can choose from that can actually end up improving your pool even beyond where it had started.
Plaster – Plaster is typically the basic option when it comes to resurfacing. However, it is definitely not a bad option as it gives you a wonderful smooth and clean finish without any of the cracks or jags of a worn out plaster job. Though white and light blue are the standard option, plaster comes in a large variety of color for you to choose from.
Aggregate – This is what you get when you mix plaster with quartz and other rocks. With this sparkling finish, you can enjoy a surface that is more durable than plain plaster and with a more attractive look too. However, the rough texture can be off putting to some.
Tile – Ceramic tiles are much more durable than plaster and have a smoother surface than aggregate. Not to mention that tiles offer a large range of variety in pattern for both your wall and base of your swimming pool.
Paint – Paint isn’t much of a solution, but it can be a good stopgap measure to keep the pool from getting any worse while you are working on getting the proper pool resurfacing scheduled and done. An epoxy paint is best to cover cracks and jagged edges, but it won’t last more than a year or so. However, this method should only be used if you can’t get things scheduled sooner.
Everything does fall apart eventually and your pool is no different. Still, that does not have to be a bad thing. If you are starting to see cracks or sharp edges in the surface of your pool, don’t hesitate to resurface your pool with a quality pool contractor today so you can hop back in the swimming pool.
