So I get one quote today from a pretty well known builder in my area to rehab my pool. He quoted the resurfacing as just plaster only. Unfortunately I wasn't home when he came to measure so I didn't get to tell him that I wanted Pebble Tech. So I asked him while he was on the phone how much extra Pebble Tech would be and his comment was, "why do you want that, you don't need it." I replied with my reasoning that it was more durable and would last longer. He told me that was nonsense. He said he knows of plaster pools that have been around 30+ years and still going. Granted, this made his quote cheaper than the others but I don't know how true that is. I have always been under the impression plaster didn't last as long and you would need it redone every 10 years.
I am really going nuts over this rehab! Please help!
