Over time, your pool’s surface will wear out and need to be replaced. When considering a pool renovation project, choosing the right resurfacing material will be an important decision. There are many options available, and the right solution for you will depend on your unique needs and budget.

Below is an overview of the best resurfacing materials for your pool renovation. At Allen Pool Service, we’ll discuss these options with you in detail and recommend the best option for your project.

Plaster

Plaster is one of the most common materials used when resurfacing swimming pools due to its durability and affordable cost. It also provides a “clean” appearance which is desirable to many pool owners.

In addition, white plaster pool surfaces are very easy to repair in the event that it gets chipped. You have two options for this pool repair:

  • Reapply a new layer of plaster to the damaged area
  • Paint the damaged area with a matching color

Aggregate (Pebble)

Aggregate is one of the most popular resurfacing materials available. It is made from a mixture of plaster and pebbles or quartz. You have a wide range of pebble colors to choose from, giving you the ability to get creative with the appearance of your pool. Other benefits of this material include:

  • Highly durable, long-lasting results
  • Stain resistant
  • Natural, earthy look and feel that resembles a stream or lake

However, aggregate pool surfaces are often very rough. If you have extremely sensitive feet, this may be undesirable. In addition, aggregate is one of the most expensive pool resurfacing materials. If you’re on a fixed budget for your pool renovation, this may not be the best option for you.

Concrete

Concrete is one of the most durable resurfacing materials. It’s a very popular option for commercial pool renovations since this durability allows it to withstand a significant amount of wear without breaking down. In addition, cracks are easy to fix. Simply sand the area and repour concrete.

However, you may want to consider a finishing material to improve the aesthetics of your concrete pool. Common options include:

  • Paint
  • Ceramic or glass tiles
  • Pool liner coating

Tile

Tile provides a luxurious appearance to your pool. This option provides several important benefits:

  • Difficult to stain
  • Easy to clean
  • Resistant to damage by chemical agents
  • Color doesn’t fade over time

Most tile pool surfaces use either a glass or ceramic material. The one drawback to tile pool surfaces is the cost. Due to the labor and materials involved, this is often the most expensive option.
