Renovating your inground swimming pool gives you the opportunity to completely upgrade your swimming pool design in Houston . For instance, you can install a new inground pool finish that will make your inground pool safer and more attractive. Here is a look at some of the most popular pool finishes available for inground pool renovations.
Swimming Pool Tile
Swimming pool tile is an incredibly popular pool finishing choice, as it is durable, affordable, and attractive. Your pool contractor can find swimming pool tile in almost any color or pattern to ensure that it matches your overall swimming pool design. Tiles also require very little pool maintenance. You will only need to occasionally clean or re-grout the pool tiles. The ideal swimming pool tile is porcelain tile, as it is dense and doesn’t absorb water. It will also be treated to ensure that it is slip-resistant, frost-proof, and protected from harmful UV rays.
The oldest pool finishing material for inground pools is pool plaster. Standard white pool plaster is created from white cement, white marble aggregate, and water. Many people choose pool plaster for their pool finishing because it is inexpensive, and will accommodate literally any swimming pool design. White pool plaster also makes pool water have a brilliant, clean, bright blue appearance that is difficult to achieve with other pool finishes. A plaster finish will require regular pool maintenance to prevent cracking, chipping, shading, scaling, or staining. You can also opt for colored or decorative plaster for your pool finish. Pool plaster can also be chemically treated to increase its strength, durability, and lifespan.
Aggregate Finishing Materials
You can also turn to aggregate finishing materials to further enhance your swimming pool design. Ceramic aggregate finishes are available in a wide range of both very bright and very subtle colors. Ceramic aggregate is also more durable and wear-resistant than plaster. Aggregate materials can also create the appearance of a natural stone finish, such as river pebbles. Another popular aggregate finishing material is smooth, colored glass beads, which are available in a variety of pigments.
