Thread: Replastering

  1. Back To Top    #1


    Replastering old pool which seems almost like new pool construction. Thinking about quartscape or having silicon added to plaster. What are pros and cons of each one???

    Welcome to TFP!
    Adding quartz/pebbles to plaster does make it last longer...typically the increase in lifespan far outweighs the increase in cost.

    We considered Quartzscapes for the durability factor, but ultimately went one step further and did the Stonescapes Mini Pebble. If that's an option for you price wise, I'd highly recommend it. For us it was a few hundred dollars more than Quartzscapes. You get an even longer life span, and the pool looks so much more awesome with it.
