Pebble pool finishes are a perfect choice for those desiring a more natural environment for their pool and spa. Pebble pool finish provides an earthy textured finish. There are many colors and textures to choose from. Pebble finishes have become very popular with homeowners wanting to resurface their pools because of its beauty and durability.
Pebble finishes consist of small, smooth river pebbles embedded in the pool plaster finish product. Other agregate finishes can be used. These include glass or quartz but pebble tends to be the least expensive of these more durable surfacing materials.
Traditional pool resuracing materials require a high level of maintenance and will only last 5 - 10 years before it needs to be replaced. We generally would expect a Pebble finish surface to last upwards of 20 years with proper maintenance. So over the long-run Pebble pool finishes can pay for themselves.
The pebbles provide a pretty and interesting texture to your pool that you don't get from plaster or tile. It catches the light, plus it just looks cool. Pebble finishes come in many shapes and colors so just about everyone can find a design that they like and that matches their pool.
Bigger aggregate can be a little uncomfortable to walk on. However, smaller ones are generally fine. Pebble finishes will last longer than plaster but will still need to be refinished at some point. And, it is more expensive than plaster.
