Pools are a great investment for any home. However, it’s not the end once the contractors install your pool. If you want to continue enjoying your pool for years to come, you need to replaster and maintain it when it’s time. Rely on JR Pool Plastering & Texas Gunite Ltd. to properly replaster your pool with our pool services and expertise.
What is pool plaster?
Plaster is the “skin” or surface that separates the pool water from the concrete pool shell. It creates a smooth surface and provides a watertight seal between the water and the rough shell beneath. Plaster is often a mix of Portland cement, limestone sand, and water. It can come in many colors, although the standard choice is white plaster.
It’s been around since people first started building pools and remains a popular, timeless choice for the surface of your pool. Deciding on the color or subsequent replacement is an important part of any pool remodeling project. Popular choices instead of plaster include tile or aggregate stone. Tile can effortlessly meld into the tile coping while aggregate is smooth and provides a textured look.
Whether you decide to stick with pool plaster instead of tile or other options, JR Pool Plastering & Texas Gunite Ltd. can help you change up or replaster your pool. We can show you how even a basic or slight change to your pool can make it completely new to you. Take a good look at your current pool and start imagining the possibilities!
Pool Plaster + Time = Replastering Time
Even though your pool plaster looked fantastic during its initial installation, time, usage, and general wear and tear can cover its original color, luster, and design. In cases of inconsistent maintenance, lack thereof, or a fair share of extreme weather, your pool plaster may endure stains, corroded surfaces, cracks, etc. If you leave these problems alone for too long, it could lead to a number of aesthetic and health-related issues. Replastering your pool can freshen up your pool’s look and give it the makeover it needs to return to its former glory.
When’s the best time to replaster my pool?
Our pool remodeling experts suggest replastering your pool about every 10 years. Technically, you can replaster you pool whenever you feel like it’s time for a change. Of course, remodeling any part of your pool takes time and and money, so you have to determine if the replastering project is a worthwhile investment.
You’ll usually see most of the wear and tear affect your pool plaster after a decade. The life span of most cement and pool plaster materials usually only lasts anywhere between seven to twelve years. Constant use, pool chemical exposure, and seasonal climates can wear out the plaster, so you might even start seeing damage at three years at the earliest. Whether you start seeing problems or get tired of the same design, we suggest getting it out of the way by the 10-year mark to ensure nothing’s wrong.
We also suggest replastering your pool if there are cracks or noticeable damage to your pool plaster. Replastering your pool is safer than shoddy repairs. If not done properly, those cracks and damage can harbor and hide bacteria, fungi, dirt, decomposing matter, and other unideal substances within your pool. In the worst-case scenario, your pool can become an environment stock full of waterborne problems.
But that’s all the technical and serious reasons to replaster your pool. Real life doesn’t come down to a geometry problem with a list of proofs. Seeing the same scene for years on end can bore anyone. Sometimes, you just have to ask yourself – is it time for a change? If the answer’s yes, it may be time to replaster your pool.
Whether you’re replastering the pool with the same plaster color or changing it up, you will see a noticeable difference.

Get inspired with fresh designs from others in our large Houston community and transform them into your pool. Here’s a few grand ideas that you can do by simply changing out the plaster:
Do you like the feeling of swimming in the deep end? Choose a darker plaster color. Having a darker plaster color creates the illusion that your pool is deeper than it really is. Not to mention, it’s more energy efficient because it absorbs the warmth of the sun better and keeps the water a nice comfortable temperature.
Do you want your pool to better blend into the landscape? Choose a more natural-toned color. Tans, browns, earth yellows, or even gray can give a warmer tone that can blend into the surrounding landscape easier than harsher colors.
Do you want to keep it modern? Choose a cool-toned color. Blues, greens, grays, and purples can make any pool take on a chic appearance. With some sharp lines and sleek accents, you can modernize your old pool with a simple color change.
Of course, if you have a grander scene in mind, replastering might not be the end. Our team can completely remodel your pool if that’s what it takes for your vision to be realized.

What To Expect After Replastering Your Pool
Plastering your pool is often one of the last steps to remodeling your pool. Although the main purpose is to seal your in-ground concrete pool, that doesn’t mean you can’t spice it up with some designs or color to bring together the overall design. However, there are a few points you should know about plastering.
Pool plaster can change colors or its overall look while it sets and cures. What you see when our team initially finish the project can change after it’s done drying. The plaster is applied by hand, so expect some unevenness in application and color throughout the pool. That’s why no pool is the same as another.
After the plaster sets, it’s important to maintain the correct water chemistry. Although the plaster’s color will naturally have some variation, an imbalance in the pool chemicals can make those variations wider and more obvious.
