The Importance of Pool Resurfacing and Replastering
Once Pool Pros are called to the pool resurfacing location, we assess the damage first and deliver an estimate to the customer. They often realize our prices are hard to beat, and they go along with us due to the outstanding reputation we have built. Once an agreement is met, the reconstruction process begins with removing the old surface of the pool. Most consist of pebbles, tiles, plaster, and other materials. When the old surface is removed, and a new one is put in its place, all of the blisters, cracks, and other damages get fixed simultaneously. Damages do not take place overnight but over many years. The pool resurfacing of the floor and walls are done at the same time. This way, everything is in line. While all the water is out and we are resurfacing, the customer may wish for other services such as upgrades to the shape or adding equipment to keep up with the maintenance.
As we mentioned earlier, water and oxidation cause deterioration and corrosion. The importance of pool resurfacing and pool re-plastering is critical for more than looks. Bacteria and algae grow in these areas and can make a person sick. That is why the upkeep is vital. Some people paint their pool. Though painting is good, it does not last as long as pool re-plastering. Paint can last up to seven years if the pool is maintained correctly. Others need to be repainted annually. Pool re-plastering can last up to twenty years. When the customer realizes the longevity, they mostly will side with re-plastering. Pool re-plastering is adding a brand new surface of mortar inside a concrete pool. Those that have plaster are already examined and have another layer added. We recommend no more than two layers. If there are two layers, we remove all plaster and start from scratch.
