Pool Resurfacing Options And Alternatives

Today’s post focus on two common ways to build the flooring in the pool: concrete resurfacing and textured colored concrete.

Resurfacing With Plaster

Plaster is the common name for concrete pool floorings. It is the most used among pools, and it is also the most practical. If you ever watched one of the Youtube videos on “primitive pool makers,” you have seen plaster. 

Concrete pool plaster offers you these benefits:

  • The pool flooring increases in durability
  • It minimizes damages 
  • The pool surface is seamless that feels good to the barefoot
  • Installation is easy and fast
  • Affordable pool resurface cost 

Alternatives To Pool Plastering

Now here are alternatives to your pool plastering Las Vegas. Using these other resurfacing methods, you can make your pools durable and polished, looking like a seamless concrete pool

1. Fiberglass

Why use fiberglass? There are certain types of conditions where you can not use plaster or concrete pools. 

If your area lacks humidity, Las Vegas concrete flooring will be prone to cracking. Your alternative is fiberglass. It gives the same cooling effect and seamless surface.

Downsides Of Fiberglass
However, watch out for the downside of using fiberglass:
  1. Cracks
  2. Colors fade easily
  3. Settling plumbing lines
  4. Bulging Walls
  5. Metal stains
Fiberglass is a reliable pool material. That is also why it is the number one choice for creating luxury pools. Despite its lucrative appeal, it is always best to weigh the downsides to the benefits.

2. Colored Concrete Pool

A practical alternative to pool plastering is colored concrete. If you want to depart from the old grey concrete pool finishing it with coloring or paint will make the difference.

3. Textured Pool

Textured surfaces provide excellent slip resistance. Beads, pebbles, and a mix of aggregates were immersed in the cement mix. The combination of those materials

Aggregate Finish

The aggregate finish uses a mix of gravel, pieces of glass, sand, and small amounts of pebbles. The aggregate mix results in smooth, bumpy textures that provide slip resistance.

You can create a unique pool or incorporate a jacuzzi with textured concrete to complete a therapeutic feel.


Beadcrete is quite a new product in the market. It looks like an aggregate finish. But the beads are made of glass pieces with polished edges.

Pebble Tec

Another innovative pool resurfacing application is the pebble tec. Its difference with the aggregate finish is that pebble tec goes through the pump instead of hand-seeding the mix. The materials are sprayed or poured onto the surface using a pressurized pump.

4. Marcite

Marcite is the widest used pool plaster material. It consists of white cement, marble, lime dust, and additives for water resistance. The resulting material is white plaster that installers use to base coat the pool shell.

5. Glasscoat

Consider glasscoat as an evolution of fiberglass. What makes a glasscoat different is that it is sprayed during installation.
