    Cost of various plaster finishes

    Is anyone willing to share their quotes for plaster, quartz and pebble finishes? Here's what I have so far in Maryland, ~ 100 lf perimeter pool.

    White plaster: Base
    Diamondbrite: +$3,000
    PebbleTec: +$11,500 over Base
    PebbleSheen: +$12,500 over Base
    My Pool Build (2015): inground 12K gals gunite/plaster pool, SWG, 2-speed pump, cartridge filter, gas heater, and polaris cleaner (Jandy). TF-100 Test Kit w/ Speed Stir

    Re: Cost of various plaster finishes

    Our quotes were $4K for Diamondbrite and $6,600 for PebbleTec. Our pool is larger and these were from 2013. We went for white plaster tinted with Onyx Diamondbrite at $0 to yield grey mottled plaster...which we really like.

    Thanks, bmore and rr -- I hope we can get a feel for costs around the country, but regional costs are most important to me

    And rr, based on that, I am girding myself for my quote, lol. Did you chose a pebble finish in the end?

    Helen, our upgrade to PebbleSheen from white plaster was about $1200.

    PebbleTec
    PebbleSheen
    Stonescape Minipebble

    I'm still waiting for estimates for the last three.
    Not in Maryland but similar size pool. My total cost (not working with builder) for the pebblesheen was $5000. I believe plaster would have been about half that. FWIW, I think a lot of the cost is coming from materials cost from Pebble Tech.

    Re: Cost of various plaster finishes

    97 ln ft
    $3900 for Gemstone (Standard, Sandstone, or Designer Series)
    + $5/ ln ft increase for Radiant Fusion or Microfusion upgrade

    I'm doing Radiant Fusion (comparable to Pebblesheen). My total cost is $4400
    The Radiant Fusion includes the abalone shells and the glass beads at no extra cost.
    This is the same finish martinkennedy has in his pool.

    Helen, we stuck with plain old white plaster. We actually wanted to go with a grey, but the PB talked us out of it for several reasons. As nice as the PebbelTec looks, we have to draw a line somewhere with the costs.

    I completely understand! Are you going to start a build thread for us?

    Here is my build thread. Still waiting for the permit to come back, which we expect any day now. Digging to start once the ground thaws (low tomorrow of around zero, which is pretty cold for here).

    rc, as I recall, bmoreswim started his build on Valentine's Day. Not sure why I remember that, lol. Looking forward to watching your build -- you may be finished before I ever get plastered!!!

    Re: Cost of various plaster finishes

    It's the second thing I think about each Valentine's morning since then. Our PB said the ground couldn't freeze deep enough here to stop the excavators equipment. It was a full size trackhoe.

    In 15 more years I'll probably do a pebble finish of some type. They do look nice. Love ours for now though.

    Actually on the dig day 2/14, I did forget the first thing...because I was awakened by the sweet sound of beep, beep, beeps!

    Re: Cost of various plaster finishes

    I got some gold from my PB-A today and though this thread might like it. Pricing for Wet Edge! From my builder at least. And what he was charging for Pebble Tec Tier 1. Hope this helps.





    With this information it looks like I'll be doing the famous color Spool got. Yea!! Happy Dance!!

    Re: Cost of various plaster finishes

    Spool's color is amazing! Congratulations!

    Wow on these prices! My PB is pretty expensive but his price on our top tier pebble is a real bargain. I'm sure I'm paying an outrageous sum for something else though

    What color are you looking at Nurse? Did these prices seem in line?

    I'm doing the Topaz. It's a very vibrant blue

    [IMG][/IMG]

    I am not familiar enough with the Wet Edge to compare the price. The Radiant fusion is the top tier (or very nearly) of the Gemstone/Finest Finish line

    That's beautiful and close to what we want. I think that's why Spool's caught my attention.



    Going to read your build thread now!

    Lol. You might want to wait and start with tomorrow's installment! So far, it has been a lot of nothing much except delays and waiting. Dig happens tomorrow

    Spool's is a good one to copy!
