Patching Pebble and White Plaster Surfaces

The appearance of your pool's interior surfaces can have a major impact on the overall appearance of your outdoor pool area. There are many types of pool interiors to choose from, but the more popular surfaces happen to be either white plaster or an aggregate pebble surface. These are some of the more popular options because of their proven durability and pleasing appearance. While these surfaces are meant to last for a number of years, there are some instances where your white plaster or pebble pool surface may require a patch to keep it intact and looking its best. At Pool Problems? We offer a quality white plaster and pebble patching service that can help keep your pool interior looking its best at all times.

White Plaster Patching
Traditional white plaster is made by mixing white cement with crushed white marble to give your pool surfaces a bright white finish that is extremely durable and highly reflective of sunlight. This makes any pool look bright, clean and inviting. In most instances, white plaster finishes will come with a five-year bonding warranty on the material itself. When properly installed, cleaned and maintained by a trained professional, white plaster can last for about ten years before it starts to flake, crack or deteriorate. If your pool features a white or colored plaster surface and is more than five years old, you may want to be on the lookout for any significant deterioration or noticeable cracks forming under and above the water surface. Should you find any issues, it is important to get the white plaster patches completed before the small cracks become big structural problems.

Pebble Patching
There are many different options for pool owners to choose from when it comes to pebble finishes. The variables include the type and size of pebbles, as well as color options that can suit virtually any design scheme. Despite these differences in appearance, pebble surfaces are applied in essentially the same fashion, no matter what color or size pebble finish you select. Pebbles are mixed with waterproof cement and a polymer additive that promotes adhesion. The mixture is applied using a trowel and is then washed to expose the colored pebbles on the surface. In most cases, pebbles with larger stones will have a more coarse texture, while smaller pebbles will feature a more smooth feel. When pebble patches are required, it usually involves a color and texture match to ensure the pebble patches don't stand out in a noticeable or unattractive way. Pebble patches are often required after about 5-10 years when pebbles in higher traffic areas become dislodged from their cement base.

Patching your white plaster and pebble pool surfaces is a cost-effective solution to maintain the appearance and integrity of your interior pool finish. Complete white plaster and pebble remodels and installation can often be prevented with quality patches completed by an experienced professional. At Pool Problems?, our team of experts can give you an accurate assessment of your pool's white plaster or pebble finish, and we will offer workable solutions for keeping the surfaces intact and attractive for years to come.
