Pool refinishing or resurfacing might sound overwhelming, but this does not have to be the case. The costs associated with pool resurfacing vary since pools are not all alike. The size of the pool, its shape, and the finish used are all factors that affect the cost of pool resurfacing.
Pool owners mistakenly believe that it is possible to resurface a pool yourself. However, that can be quite a massive risk especially for those that haven’t undertaken such projects before. Fixing mistakes resulting from inexperience may actually end up costing more money than if you had simply used a pool resurfacing professional from the start.
Even if you do a good job with your pool resurfacing DIY project, chances are it won’t look quite as good as if you had used a professional. That’s the reason why we always recommend hiring a professional pool resurfacing service in Dallas, Texas for the best results.

Pool Resurfacing Cost in Dallas, Texas
The unfortunate reality is that with limited to no knowledge of many details of your pool, it is close to impossible to come up with a decent cost estimate. Plaster will obviously be your cheapest option. However, it has the shortest service life. Pool re-plastering helps add to the value of your property.
If you have issues with your electrical, plumbing, or other equipment, you can expect the cost to be higher. Depending on whether the craftsmanship is poor, the pool’s age, and your desired options, the price will also vary.
If you require upgrades or replacements in your plumbing system, those too will add to the overall cost of the project. You can think of these things as the transmission and engine of a 20-year-old vehicle. A new interior and paint job will be great, but it is even more important to look at such things to avoid any surprises later.

What Finishes Are Available for My Pool?
The pool resurfacing options below are guaranteed to give you many years of excellent performance and natural beauty in any properly maintained pool. The following will help you understand the weaknesses and strengths of each.
Here are 3 of the most popular finishes:
– Diamond Brite: It is a mixture of a polymer-modified cement in an aggregate of Quartz crystals
– Glass Tiles: It is quite a popular option because of its incredible durability and stunning beauty
– Pebble Aggregate: It is available in many options, which include PebbleSheeen, PebbleTec, Hydrazzo, and BeadCrete.
Diamond Brite is a fine pool finish that’s easy to maintain, pleasing to the eye, and durable. It is permeated with stunning natural quartz crystals. Quartz is one of the purest and hardest minerals on
Earth. The quartz aggregates are combined with non-fading Quartz crystals and polymer cement thus creating an impressive gamut of colors.
Diamond Brite is not only impermeable to the sun’s UV rays but also the harsh pool chemicals. The strength of natural quartz resists etching and stains. Unlike plaster pools, you can drain Diamond Brite pools without causing any damage. Diamond Brite is available in 17 different colors. Each color reflects the sky, water, and surroundings in a unique way.
Glass Tiles add incredible beauty to swimming pools. They come in many different colors, finishes, and shapes and can add elegance and class to any pool. Of all the finishes that we offer, glass tiles offer the most durability. Glass tiles can be installed in a pool’s edges and steps, waterline, sun shelf, water walls, as well as the interior or even the outer walls.
Glass is an excellent option for a pool tile due to the way it refracts sunlight and reflects the water’s movement. Glass tile installation, however, is slightly more labor intensive, which usually translates to higher overall costs. Still, the results are amazing and it isn’t comparable to any other type of tile.
A pebble finish is referred to as an aggregate finish in the industry. One mistake that people in the industry make is referring to a pebble pool finish as “Pebble-Tec” since that’s just one brand out of many.
Pebble-Tec is widely recognized in the industry since it was the first company to patent the specific process, but just as in the case of quartz finishes, there are several manufacturers of pebble aggregate finishes.
A pebble finish is attained much like a quartz finish is attained. To the plaster mix consisting of standard plaster small polished stones are added before they are troweled by hand onto the granite surface.
All pebble finishes have a mottled or marbled appearance to some extent since they are made largely of nature’s stone, but you will never find two alike pools.
You will also come across exposed aggregate finishes that use larger river rock stone as opposed to the smaller quartz gems and stone. Pebble Tec and Crystal Stone are some of the most popular brands. Hey give the pool a different look compared with the quartz products.
We only use the highest quality finishes currently available in the market. Doing this ensures that your pool is not only beautiful but also reliable and durable for a long time to come. We offer the latest by Pebble Tec, Pebble Fina and Pebble Sheen.
It is important to note that there can be a massive difference in how each one affects the appearance depending on the selected color scheme. If colored Diamond Brite is applied in lighter shades it can make your pool water appear blue. Darker and medium colors will have a totally different effect. Another interesting way to enhance your pool’s appearance would be to install underwater lighting.
The Differences Between Pebble Sheen and Pebble Tec
Pebble Tec consists of small river pebbles that are mixed with Portland cement and dye. There are numerous styles and colors that you can choose from. The colors range from white to dark blue to black. Pebble Tec adds elegance and class to your pool and is a dependable and durable finish. It is a non-slip surface naturally, and since it is made of stone, it tends to be incredibly resistant to less than ideal water conditions.
A smaller pebble with a diameter of 1 to 2 mm that’s fused together in a high density and then polished to a high sheen is used in Pebble Sheen. The manufacturer says that the fine pebbles as well as the application process results in a look that isn’t unlike granite countertops and is available in 16 colors.
A Brief Summary of Pool Resurfacing
Selecting the type of concrete overlay to be used is the first step in resurfacing a pool deck. The decision is made by the homeowner with a professional’s input. However, the proper surface should have a non-skid element and be made of materials that resist the chemicals typically used in pools. It should also look good. Still, functionality and safety have to come first.
The existing deck surface along with the pool have to pre prepared prior to the commencement of the resurfacing job. The deck should be thoroughly cleaned and any divots or cracks should be repaired using a concrete resurfacer, but only if they are superficial.
If the cracks go all he way through, the concrete itself may need to be replaced completely. The pool is usually covered or at least drained completely to protect the pool system from the materials used during the resurfacing process.
The old plaster from the drains, inlets, tile, and lights is removed to allow the new finish to go on evenly. Any paint should be removed by water or sand blasting, which can take 1 or 2 days. A bond coat is then applied to the pool to prepare it for the new plaster. The entire prep and plaster time can take 3 to 4 days. Once the pool has been plastered, it should then be filled with clean water with a low mineral and metal content.

Here Are the Steps Followed when Resurfacing Your Pool
We first access the central pump system of your pool and switch it over to the “backwash” or “drain” setting. We make use of a submersible pump in some instances to remove the water from the pool. Pool resurfacing cannot start unless the pool is completely emptied and dried.
During the process of draining we direct the runoff water somewhere it does not cause oversaturation, flooding, or any other complication. The time taken to drain your pool may be up to several hours, but this will depend on the size of the pool.
Once we have emptied all the water out of the pool and it is completely dry, we will check for crumbling, cracks, blistering, and other deterioration. Such marks are indicative of a more immediate issue with either the pool’s plumbing or in-ground foundation. We also use tarps to cover the pool area to keep it clean while sand blasting is underway.
Fiberglass, plaster, and composite finishes have to be sandblasted or even chiseled away to the underlying concrete to ensure a better hold for the new material. Sand blasting etches the existing surface and makes it sufficiently rough for bonding, but smoother than if it was chipped out.
3. Cement and Masonry Tiles
High-end pools typically have an impressive look when resurfaced with materials such as ceramic tile, quartz, or pebble concrete. Such materials offer a durable lining that resists stains, algae, as well as chemical-related damage.
Our tile professionals are experienced in pool applications that differ from interior tile installation because your pool tile will be continually exposed to chemicals, outside elements, as well as water. This steps usually takes 2 to 3 days, while masonry usually takes 24 to 48 hours.
4. Plumbing Inspection
We then undertake a complete inspection of your pool’s plumbing system and pump. We will be checking for any leaks, whether hidden or obvious. We also test the resiliency of any plastic parts and components. The process typically takes 1 full day.
5. Acid Wash and the Application of Pool Finish
Acid etching is needed on bare masonry surfaces such as plaster or concrete. It is also effective for removing chalky residue as well as hard mineral deposits on a previously coated pool. Acid washing helps to open up millions of tiny holes that allow for the penetration of the subsequent coating thereby leading to the creation of a secure cohesive bond.
The acid and drain wash are primarily used to get rid of the scale, stains, and calcium from the corners and floor of your pool bed. After the acid wash, you should completely neutralize the acid using an alkaline soda ash solution.
The concrete is cleaned using a mixture of muriatic acid and water. Muriatic acid produces harmful fumes as well as burns on the skin and we have safety equipment that’s rated to protect our technicians from its effects.
6. Filling the Pool and Cleaning Up
When refilling your pool, we spend several hours doing a thorough, final cleanup of the whole pool are. While we usually clean up after ourselves at the end of each work day, we want to ensure that there’s no trace of dirt or dust left behind. We will also perform a final inspection during this time.
7. Initial Water Treatment
The initial water treatment is perhaps the most important action that’s performed to ensure that the pool retains its appearance and life of the new surface material. Once the pool is completely filled with water, a sequence of treatments is necessary for the surface area to cure as thoroughly as possible.
Close monitoring and service is critical throughput for the first 7 days of the pool treatment. You can, of course, choose to have your own pool man do this and we will be happy to consult with him to ensure that it is properly done.
If the pool service professional isn’t readily available or prefers not to do such treatments, you can always trust our team of experienced professionals at Dallas Pool Resurfacing Contractor to undertake the initial water treatment procedure.
