Posted on: May 12th, 2015 by

With summer now just around the corner, you may be thinking about giving your pool a makeover. At Allen Pool Service, we do pool renovations in a wide variety of finishes to restore the natural beauty of your whole back yard.  Today we want to share some helpful information about the benefits of a pebble finishes for pools.

Plaster and pebble are the most common materials to use to refinish your pool. A plaster finish will be less expensive upfront and may seem like the most cost-effective option.  However, there are several advantages of a pebble finish that definitely make it worth considering.

Pebble finishes are more durable than plaster finishes. While they cost more to install, they tend to last longer, and they can handle the many chemicals that are required for pool maintenance. On average, a pebble finish, when correctly installed and maintained, will last 30 years. So, if cost is your primary concern and you plan to be in your home for a long time, it may make sense to invest in a long-lasting pebble finish.

Pebble finishes help keep your pool warm. White plaster reflects the sun, whereas a darker pebble finishes absorbs the sun’s heat. This means that a pebble finish will naturally keep your pool warmer than a plaster finish would, saving you money if you heat your pool and adding comfort if you don’t.

Pebble finishes hide natural stains. Dirt and dust will to get into your pool, even if you clean it well.  Some natural staining will occur just from the fact that your pool is outdoors. Compared to plaster, pebble finishes are better at hiding these stains because they are composed of multiple colors and are very natural-looking on their own.

The creativity factor. You have an opportunity with a pebble finish to pick what colors you want the finish to be and really make it unique. You can find a finish that matches your personal taste and can match with the tiling and other furnishings for a well-coordinated look. You can also choose the size of the pebbles that you like best.

Last but not least, pebble finishes are truly stunning.  With a wide variety of colors to choose from, you can create a more beautiful pool with pebble finish than can be achieved with simple plaster, plus the finish will enhance the natural beauty of a yard because they themselves are natural-looking.

In the end, with the Allen Pool Service team managing your pool renovation, you can’t go wrong with either a plaster or pebble finish.  Since you are investing time and money renovating your pool, it is important to choose the option that is best for you both aesthetically and budget-wise.
