Just like your home and landscape, pools need care, upgrades, and renovations. If your swimming pool is over three years old and shows definite signs of wear and tear, it might be time for pool resurfacing. 

Depending on the materials your pool was built with, your pool may last much longer than your neighbors. Because every pool is different, we’ll give you seven tell-tale signs to look out for if you need pool resurfacing. 

What is Pool Resurfacing

Pool Resurfacing is a professional process that entirely refinishes your pool’s surface and can last anywhere from three to seven years. It might even last over ten years, depending on the materials, quality, and upkeep. When you hire pool resurfacing professionals and the job is done well, your swimming pool is restored to its original beauty. 

It is an extensive process that can be completed relatively quickly. Pool refinishing involves removing the top layer of the pool’s floor, walls, or waterline—it sounds more daunting than it is! 

Your pool refinishing company then replaces the floor and walls with new, durable materials. This process should be done when your swimming pool shows considerable signs of wear and tear, either due to use or weather conditions. 

7 Signs Your Pool Needs Resurfacing 

Your pool might be covered in algae or have other signs of aging. This is because the surface has worn away, allowing water to seep through.

But what are the typical signs that it is time for pool resurfacing? 

Here are a few things to look out for:

  • Pool tiles sticking up or curling away from the pool wall.
  • Visible cracks in the tiles and walls of your pool. These can be caused by shifting soil, temperature changes, stress on pool structure, pool equipment malfunction, or even by the pool being built on an uneven surface.
  • Discoloration of tiles and pool water.
  • Mold growing near areas where there is tile grout (such as around drains).
  • Pool plaster loss around pool equipment or waterline.
  • Pool paint is peeling, chipping, or cracking.
  • Rough texture on the pool floor or walls. 

Pool Resurfacing Materials 

Pool re-plastering is done by applying a layer of epoxy or vinyl ester resin with a sand mix over the pool’s surface. This process fills in any cracks and holes by sealing them off from water penetration. Professionals can dye the plaster to match your color scheme. 

Resurfacing can also include cement, fiberglass, and tiles.
