    JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    Beginning a pool remodel.

    Was hoping to hear from those who choose either surface finish, price paid per square foot, and color selected. Photos of finished build would be great as especially with JewelScapes it is hard to find diverse representative pictures. Both options tend to be expensive so for those who selected these finishes was it worth it in retrospect? Thanks

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    We are have a 17x30 3ft to 6ft with raised spa and the price for jewelscapes for that size pool and spa was $16000.00 upgrade. We are going with quartzscapes Barbados blue I'm in south Florida. Most PB go by linear foot here. If I'm remember correctly it's 210 linear foot pool and spa. I think the jewelscapes is beautiful. Sorry I can't help with the other questions. Hope this helps

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    Can u clarify which one is which along with the color of the finish? Both of these look great.

    I have been quoted $16,500 for PebbleTec BeadCrete Water Blue.
    Leaning toward that at this point.

    JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    We are nearing the end of a new build and are putting in Beadcrete Water Blue. The upgrade from Pebble Sheen was I recall around $8000 (CAD) for a 16x30 20K gallon pool and raised spa. Happy to post pics when the water is in and balanced.

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    Our bead shoot is scheduled for tomorrow. 4th time rescheduled, so I'll believe it when I'm squinting from the sparkle.

    Happy to post pics before and after fill and balancing!

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    Thanks, ummgood! The colour is still developing but so far we love it.

    I was thinking as it was going in yesterday, that it was very Smurf-like. Similar pigments, I imagine, to Blue Surf?

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    Looks great! Thank you so much for sharing. Particularly like the color gradient with depth. Certainly sold on BeadCrete. I am between water blue and majestic at this point.

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    What's the difference between Beadcrete and a pebble sheen with luminous glass beads as an add in? Is Beadcrete a smaller pebble?

    Re: JewelScapes vs Pebbletech BeadCrete

    I believe the main difference is that Beadcrete has glass beads only and no pebbles.

    I think the plaster color might be the same between the two. It isn't that far fetched to think they use the same plaster in several different products I am guessing.

    I just got an education on this from our local PebbleTec application company and was told that BeadCrete is indeed all glass. Additionally, glass beads can be added to PebbleTec and PebbleSheen finishes (with options for different amounts too). BeadCrete is apparently a *lot* more than the Tec/Sheen finishes (and just adding some glass beads isn't that cheap either). MA pricing for what it's worth.
