Give Your Pool A Makeover With A New Surface: Resurfacing Options To Renovate Pools

by Anton Leinonen

If you have a pool, you might have grown tired of its look. It may have some fogging on the walls or on the floor, for instance. Those are problems that can be fixed pretty easily with resurfacing. Resurfacing is the process of covering your existing swimming pool with a new surface to give it a brand new look. The following pool resurfacing information will help you give yours a makeover with a brand new surface and look:

What is Pool Resurfacing?

Just like a facelift or home renovation, pool resurfacing is a popular way to improve the appearance and functionality of your swimming pool. Taking into account that pools tend to cause a lot of hassle and expense, most pool owners will be happy to learn the benefits of resurfacing with a new surface. Pool resurfacing is a process in which a new surface (or coating) is applied to your pool. Pool resurfacing, sometimes referred to as replastering, involves removing all or part of the old surface and applying a new one. Today, there are also several other options, which include installing tile or stonework for the new surfaces.

Remove the Old Pool Surface

Removing the old pool surface is very important. These materials need to be removed to ensure the new finish for your pool can be installed correctly. Over time, the old surface will fail and may cause problems with stain colors, adhesives, and possible delamination of the finish layers. Removing the finish down to the substrate will allow for a smooth transition to the new surface.

Choose the New Finish

Resurfacing is a simple and cost-effective way to renew and completely transform your pool. Whether you want to change the pool surface's material, color, texture, or shape, new resurfacing techniques can provide virtually any new finish you can imagine. To create this transformation, you have the choice of conventional pool coatings and plaster finishes, or, as mentioned previously, you might want to enhance the appearance with a custom tile or stone finish for your pool.

Pool Resurfacing

Once you have chosen the material you want to use for the new finish, the work on the new surface can begin. This is a job that you can expect to take a few weeks, especially if you want to add features like custom stairs or a water feature. The contractor will begin applying the new surface to the pool once the old materials have been removed and changes have been made. When the new surface has cured, your pool will be ready to be filled again. In addition to the pool surface, you might also want to ask about coping for the pool deck and other improvements for the pool area to create the new look you want to achieve.

A pool surface may be perfect for getting a brand new swimming pool look. Contact a pool resurfacing service to start planning these renovations for your pool.
