Your swimming pool has likely provided you with years of entertainment and relaxation. However, if you check the interior surface of your pool, it may look more worn that you would like. That is why you should consider resurfacing your pool to make it look "like new" again. There are several pool resurfacing options to choose that a professional can apply for you, but you should only consider the top choices. Read on to learn about some great options.


If your budget is tight, you should consider using plaster to resurface your pool with. Plaster is a very inexpensive option that will give you that classic white surface that you are used to. It can be applied within a few hours and can last several years without too much maintenance. If you want to make the surface of your pool shine a little, consider mixing the plaster mixture with quartz aggregate. The quartz provides a stunning reflective surface while adding a tad more durability than plain plaster. 

You can purchase plaster and quartz aggregate from your local hardware store. Simply follow the manufacturer's directions to mix the plaster. After draining your pool, allow it to air out for several hours in order to get the surface totally dry before applying the plaster. Make sure to apply the plaster so that it is 1.5-2.5 cm in thickness. 


If you are a die-hard for extra durable surfaces, consider having a professional apply concrete to resurface your pool. Although concrete is used to resurface larger public pools, it can be used for residential pools as well. When poured on the pool surface, it is smooth and is free of any rough spots that may degrade the overall quality of your pool. Concrete can also be painted to more closely match the decor and style of your pool as well. Ultimately, it is a quality choice if you want to totally prevent any cracks or damage from forming in your pool. 


Fibreglass has become an increasingly popular option when it comes to resurfacing pools. Fibreglass is durable because it is made from interlocking plastic-like fibres that can withstand everyday wear and tear. 

Fibreglass can be purchased in cast shapes, like tile, to fit on the surface of the pool. Some people prefer to have a professional layer the fibreglass with vinyl surfacing in order to customise the colour or design of the pool surface. Although fibreglass is highly durable, it is possible that it can crack over time. The good thing is that cracks can be repaired with fibreglass patches that are readily available at your local hardware store.
