Some of the signs that homeowners should look for that would indicate that now is about the time for them to consider re-plastering their swimming pool would be:
- With the plaster you’ll probably start to notice – the first thing you’ll notice is as you and your friends and family are using the pool, the bottom’s starting to feel a little rough; more like sandpaper than the old, slick and smooth interior finish.
- You’ll notice some staining and discoloration.
- Some delamination is occurring where you’re getting spots that are actually popping off where you’re seeing the raw Gunite or shocrete underneath of there.
- And then of course some people decide it’s just time for a face lift; like to change the color and that’s another reason as well that people decide to resurface their pool.
For folks that are considering or believe to be ready to go and make the plunge right now to go and re-plaster, there are several things you should look for when choosing a company to do the work for you.
Make sure you’re having your pool resurfaced is to get it done by a reputable company that’s done a lot of whatever products you decide to use. The main thing with doing a resurfacing project is it’s much like painting your house. About 80% of the work is in the prep and then about 20% is in the application of the actual product. Look for references or have them show you the processes that they take and of course the products that they use.
What specific things happen during the prepping process?
Contractors prep a pool for resurface by first chipping out around your fittings and underneath your tiles about two to five inches. This is done so the new plaster will come in and flow flush with existing or new fittings and tiles. And then they’ll apply what’s called a bond kote over the existing plaster or finish. Bond kote gives the new product a better surface to adhere to so it’ll stick to the pre existing surface. Many contractors skip the bond koting even though it is very important. It is like painting a black wall white with no primer. The bond kote is the primer, so make sure whom you hire includes that step.
Is there a typical life expectancy on the concrete pools when it comes to needing to re-plaster?
With concrete pools the cement based plasters, plaster or a quartz finish, they usually come with a 10 year warranty. Now if you don’t chemically care for your pool, the pool surfacing can easily deteriorate quickly.
Another option is a pebble type of pool finish, generally they come with a longer warranty as they’re going to last a lot longer. It does cost a little more, but pebble comes with a 30 year lifetime limited warranty. And realistically, unless you want to change the color of your pebble finish, then this surface will last you a long while.
