Colored Ceramic Quartz
Aggregates, like colored ceramic quartz, are a new option in interior finishes for your swimming pool. they come from a specialized form of ceramic-coated sand. When mixed with the use of plaster, you can create a stronger and more durable surface compared to standard plaster. The surface becomes harder and more resistant to water and chemical changes.
Aggregate surfaces, the new generation in plaster finishes, tend to be more expensive than plain plaster. On the upside, it is also more resistant to chemicals and stains. Patterns on the quartz may also help disguise visual blemishes that otherwise would be so obvious on plaster.
In terms of durability, you can expect aggregate surfaces to prolong the life of the swimming pool’s surface by 10 to 15 years.
Over the last decade, another type of finish has become quite popular – exposed aggregates, which usually contain micro glass beads or small river pebbles. The glass beads or pebbles are embedded in concrete and are exposed by power washing the concrete before it dries.
Not only does an exposed aggregate finish make your swimming pool look beautiful, but it’s also the most durable when compared to plaster and quartz.
It’s also probably the most expensive but it can extend the life of your swimming pool by as much as 14 years. What you spend for its installation will more than make up for the cost you will end up saving for its maintenance for the long term.
Whether you are building a new swimming pool or refinishing an old one as part of your renovation project, you can find a pool finish to achieve the look that you want, that fits your budget, and suits your needs.
