When it’s time to redo your pool’s plaster, every pool owner should consider a quartz plaster finish. It’s more durable than standard plaster finishes, but costs less than pebble finishes. Instead of sand in the plaster, like with traditional pool plaster, crushed pieces of quartz stone are added to the mix. Polymers are added for additional strength. The end result is a beautiful and durable pool plaster that will last for years to come.
Here’s why you should consider a quartz finish for your pool plaster:
- A stronger surface: Quartz is one of the most abundant minerals in the earth’s crust, and for good reason: it’s strong and durable. Using quartz in your pool plaster helps strengthen the mixture, along with the added polymers. This type of plaster lasts over 10 to 15 years longer than traditional pool plaster.
- Cost effective: If you choose a quartz finish, you’ll enjoy the benefits of a longer-lasting pool plaster surface—for less than the cost of tile or pebble installation. Since you’ll go longer in between replastering jobs, you’ll save even more money as time goes on. If you can finance the initial investment, it will serve you well.
- Smooth, comfortable surface: You might read the words “crushed quartz” and picture yourself being scraped by your pool plaster. There’s no need to worry—your crushed quartz pool plaster will be troweled smooth. You and your family will stay safe and comfortable as you enjoy your pool throughout the years.
- Stain and scratch resistant: Since quartz is so strong—and nonporous—quartz plaster finishes are far more resistant to stains, scratching and etching. Traditional pool plaster can be destroyed over time, thanks to harsh chemicals, sunlight, algae and more. Quartz finishes will look great and stay structurally sound for decades.
- Available in multiple colors: You’re not limited to white or gray when you choose quartz plaster. This finish comes in a variety of colors, including blue, green and even red. Of course, if you prefer white or gray, you can choose those classic neutrals as well.
- Fights erosion: Over time, your pool plaster undergoes a lot of wear and tear. If you have a chlorine-based pool, the chemicals will eat away at the plaster. This can erode the finish and lead to cracks or chunks falling off. Not only is that unattractive, it’s also unsafe for swimmers. Quartz’s ultra-tough properties can stand up to your pool chemicals while still looking great.
