Thread: Does Pebble Fina cost MORE than Pebble Tec?

    Does Pebble Fina cost MORE than Pebble Tec?

    Our contractor had level 1 Pebble tec in our contract. After much contemplation we think we would like Pebble Fina Bella Blue better. Bella Blue is a standard color. When we told our contractor he said that it would be about $800-$1000 more. I thought Fina was a downgrade from Tec. Am I confused or is my contractor confused?

    Pebble Tec is their baseline product. All of the variations are more expensive.

    Hey guys,

    pebble tec is their baseline pebble product, but pebble fina is more like a traditional plaster finish instead of the "pebble" finish. Around me, pebble fina is the base product and is about 30% less than pebble tec.

    Curious how Pebblesheen fits into the line?

    Re: Does Pebble Fina cost MORE than Pebble Tec?

    Thanks. I thought that it would be less since it does not have the pebble product in it. It does seem to be much smoother than regular plaster finish though. I think my PB didn't have a chance to price it before he told me it would be more.

    My builder said PebbleTec or PebbleSheen were the same price for me. I didnt ask about PebbleFina but I have read it is the cheaper of the 3. I think the pricing may vary on location, but if you are in Houston don't be fooled.

    Matt...actually we are in the Beaumont/Houston area. My husband REALLY wanted Beadcrete but it was over $7,000 more than the Pebble-TEC!

    I imagine so, Beadcrete is totally different but it looks pretty cool. But $7k??? I think I would pass, too...

    my plaster crew installed a few bead crete finishes, but had problems with very very sharp pieces. I wouldn't use it on a customer's pool after hearing those stories.
