Houston TX Gunite Pool Resurfacing
If the surface of your gunite pool is stained, cracked, leaking, or too rough on your feet, it is time to resurface your pool. If taken care of, this should only happen once every 10-15 years.
Concrete pools have a tougher surface, and mediocre plasters will do you no favors in the long run. Because of this we highly recommend considering higher-quality finishes. If you still want the look and feel of plaster, we recommend looking into the Altima and Luna Quartz products made by Wet Edge.
These plasters replace some or all of the marble sand found in most plasters with significantly more durable quartz sand for a proven increased life-span. Wet Edge also uses top-of-the-line powdered pigments in their plasters, which prevent the uneven fading and fast wear of the cheaper liquid pigments.
If you want to move away from the plaster look entirely and aim for the luxurious feel of a smooth riverbed, we recommend looking into one of several pebble options. Again, we recommend Wet Edge as a starting place for these options because their products are easily some of the best on the market.
Wet Edge – Exposed Aggregate
The term aggregate refers to the added objects found in high-quality pool finishes such as pebbles, glass beads, and shells. If the aggregate is exposed, this can mean one of two things. Either the aggregate is visible, but the top layer is polished, so the surface is one smooth texture. Or, the top layer of cement is removed during the application process. This allows the aggregate to form the texture along your pool’s surface.
The colors in the pigment and accents in the aggregate will impact the hue your water will have at both close and far distances.
Wet Edge offers 4 distinct styles of exposed aggregate finishes. Every option across these 4 styles is recommended for Houston TX gunite pool resurfacing because of the smooth, durable surface it provides.
Only 1 of these styles is polished – Primera Stone. This style uses a combination of smaller pebbles, colored glass beads, shells, and pigment to create beautiful light blue or black-bottomed hues.
The remaining 3 styles featuring exposed aggregate are Signature Matrix, Prism Matrix, and Serenity Stone.
Wet Edge Premium Pebble Finishes
Firstly, Signature Matrix is the most diverse of the 3 styles offering 21 different combinations of small pebbles, medium pebbles, and pigment. These options range from the light blue hue of Gulf White to the intense, gold-accented Black.
Secondly, featuring the same small and medium-sized pebbles, Prism Matrix offers 13 stunning options with different pigments and colored glass beads. These options range from the iridescent blues of Summer Lights to the deep blues and intense emerald accents of Glossy Black.
And lastly, featuring the largest pebbles of the collection is Serenity Stone. This style combines medium and large pebbles with colored glass beads and pigment. These luxurious options range from Radiant Sky to Midnight Mediation.
Resurfacing? The Perfect Time For Additions
Resurfacing a pool is a great time to add to your pool’s shell. Did you realize later you wanted a tanning ledge or a waterfall? Maybe you’re considering adding an above-ground spa? JR Pool Plastering and Texas Gunite Ltd. can help you design and install any additions you’ve been wanting before resurfacing your gunite pool.
And, with the use of gunite, these additions can be anything you can dream. Do you want a sloping tanning ledge to mimic your favorite beachfront? Do you need to add wide, gentle stairs an elderly person can easily walk up and down? Maybe a ledge for young kids to safely play on? These additions are no problem with gunite. We can also add water features like fountains, jets, or waterfalls. Even a large addition like a pool extension or connected spa is made easy with gunite.
What Is Gunite?
Gunite is a popular form of sprayable cement. This sturdy material is used to build the shell of your pool. It is then made waterproof with a plaster finishing seal. On top of this seal, beautiful details like aggregate, coping, and tile can be added.
Gunite is popular because of its durability and the increased flexibility it offers during the design phase. In fact, gunite can be manipulated to take on any desired shape. This is done by building a 3D grid of steel bars and spraying the gunite onto it. With this incredibly flexible material, we can make any addition you can dream.
If your gunite pool’s plaster is stained, cracked, leaking, or too rough on your feet, it is likely time to resurface your pool. Don’t settle for another round of mediocre plaster; upgrade your private oasis with Wet Edge.
