Many factors will influence the kind of pool finish you select for your pool. For one, the aesthetic appeal of the finish matters. Another factor is the color and style and how they fit in with the rest of our home décor along with your personal preference.
Here are three of the most popular finishes:
- Diamond Brite – This aggregate finish is a combination of Portland cement that is modified with polymers and blended with quartz crystals.
- Pebble Aggregate – Some of these variations include PebbleTec and PebbleSheen.
- Glass Tiles – This is one of the most attractive finishes that homeowners love and is available in a variety of colors and shapes.
- BeadCrete and Hydrazzo
Chandler Pool Resurfacing – For the Diamond Brite finishes, there are a variety of color options to choose from including Aqua Quartz, Super Blue, and Cool Blue. Aside from the attractiveness of this finish, Diamond Brite is also known to be durable, lasting up to 12 years or more before starting to fade and lose its luster. Maintenance of this finish is also fairly inexpensive, involving an acid wash every five years. The cost for Diamond Brite finish can range from $5,000 to $10,000 depending on the color choice. It’s recommended to choose lighter colors that are more durable.
The Pebble Aggregate finish offers one of the most natural finishes among the three choices. It has a darker appearance than the other finishes. Some of the popular variations for Pebble Aggregate include PebbleTec, PebbleSheen. Color options such as Slate Blue, Black Marble, Tropical Breeze, Seafoam Green, and Soft White are the most popular among our clients.
Glass tiles are considered one of the most expensive among all finishes but they can create a spectacular effect on your pool, giving it a high-class appearance. Usually, glass tiles are placed as highlights on portions of the pool like the steps or the waterline. Some homeowners choose to have their entire pool resurfaced with glass tiles which can be as expensive as constructing a new pool. Generally speaking, the cost of glass tiles is $30 to $50 per square foot of glass. Although expensive, glass tiled pools last the longest and are easily repaired.
The color choice of your finish can have a great effect on water appearance. For example, some light-colored versions of Diamond Brite finishes can cause the water to appear aqua blue. You can also enhance the appearance of your pool by adding underwater lights which highlight the appearance of the pool finish.
Chandler Pool Resurfacing – PebbleTec and PebbleSheen are both made by the same company but differ in several ways. According to the manufacturers of this finish, PebbleSheen is one of the best-selling finishes they have and is created by blending small pebbles which gives a smoother finish compared to PebbleTec. PebbleTec has a more natural appearance but also has a rough texture which may make it non-slip.
To enhance either of the two finishes, it’s common to augment them with the Shimmering Sea. This adds an amazing brilliance to the appearance of the pebbles. Both PebbleTec and PebbleSheen are known to be long-lasting and are a good investment for any pool.
