Knowing a thing or two about the process can help you plan it better and save you a lot of time and a decent amount of money.

Why you should replaster your concrete pool

Over time, the plaster in your pool can wear down, leading to an unsightly appearance and potential structural issues. Replastering is essential to maintain the integrity of your pool’s surface, enhance its aesthetics, and prevent future problems such as:

  • Surface degradation
  • Structural damage
  • Water loss
  • Algae and bacteria growth
  • Increase maintenance costs
  • Decreased property value

From our experience, concrete pool replastering on time is the cheapest way to maintain your pool. And, of course, hiring professional contractors with a deep understanding of this field who are working with A-class materials will ensure high-quality work that will last for a long time. 

How does the replaster pool process work?

We asked our builders to tell us a bit more about the process so you’d be able to better prepare yourself for it. To make it easier to understand, our builders separate the process into several vital steps to ensure a smooth and durable finish.

Preparing the pool’s surface

The first step, obviously, is to drain the pool to expose the existing plaster surface. The next step is to prepare the surface for replastering by removing any loose or damaged plaster and repairing any cracks or imperfections. Then, it’s time to apply a bonding agent to promote adhesion between the old and new plaster layers. That is the last step taken to prepare the surface for the new layer of plaster, and now the builders can move on to the next phase, which is applying the new plaster.

Applying the new layer of plaster

Once the surface is prepared, our builders mix the plaster according to manufacturer specifications and apply it to the pool using specialized tools such as trowels or plastering machines. After the plaster is ready, it needs leveling to ensure the texture and appearance are on point and there are no loose ends that could cause future issues. 

And now we wait. As the newly plastered pool needs several days or even weeks to dry (depending on the specific product used and environmental conditions)

Why replaster pool over existing plaster?

Every crisis is also an opportunity! Replastering the pool over existing plaster helps to maintain the pool’s structural integrity. Basically, it allows you to customize the look of your pool by choosing new and exciting colors and finishes that match your unique taste and style.

And, of course, this minor thing we all like – saving time and money. And who’s not interested in that?
