    Combining two pool finishes on pool edge

    IMG_4637.jpg

    Is it possible to have a sand pebble finish on the top of this shelf and a blue pebble finish on the wall of shelf without a boarder tile?

    What does your PB say? He'll be doing the work, right? Not many PB's on this forum.

    No, wasn't sure if any pool buyers had this done and had any suggestions on how it was done. Should I check forum rules, am I not suppose to ask questions like this?

    It is fine to ask the question, I don't see that he suggests otherwise in his answer to you. I have seen two color finishes, not all installers will do it. And it seems to cost nearly twice as much to do it because it is basically two different set ups and pool finishes.

    Ok just wanted to make sure. We already have price set for the two colors, but right now on that lip of sun shelf there is a line of tile what we are afraid may have our pool looking too busy. Was wondering if there were any other methods to have these two finishes be separate without having the tile to separate.

    I've seen plasterers butt the two finishes together with nothing in between.

    If your builder can't get the bubbler centered, keep the strip of tile.

    Two finishes are rather common around here. Something to consider is there will be a straight line where one color starts and the other ends. I've seen pools where the colors were attempted to be faded together and the results looked a little odd.
