We are going to have our pool resurfaced. Recently moved into home and now our plaster pool is starting to delaminate. I have thought about re plastering as it is least $, but at same time thought it may be smarter to pay more now up frt for a surface that will last longer. We both like the smoothness of plaster, and think it would fare better with our infants as we begin to get them in the pool. Hence that is why I have been looking at the Pebble Fina and Wet Edge Primera. Ruled out the Pebble Tec and Sheen, and Wet Edge Pearl matrix & Satin Matrix due to the exposed aggregate/potential roughness under foot.
I'm just curious which is the best avenue out of the options in the title bar as far as durability. I was reading the post Ten Guidelines for Quality Plaster, & it sounds like plaster can get up to 20 years out of it if cared for right. Realistically I was thinking 10 if that. In CA here, The Wet Edge Primera has a 15 yr warranty whereas I'm unsure on the Pebble Fina.
The Wet edge Primera is apparently more marble and matrix and can be polished if there are ever problems years down the road. The Fina I again am unclear how that is different from the Primera. I just know that the Fina is the least $ out of the Pebble products and I think it may have a shorter warranty. Sure, I already know about the Pebble installers have to be certified, but that is irrelevant if I find a competent, experienced installer of the Wet edge Primera.
The one thing I do know in this situation is the $ is much higher for the aggregate vs plaster. Plaster is approx $4500-5000, whereas Wet Edge Primera is almost $8500, and the pebble Fina is $7000-7200 if I recall correctly. Could the is Primera really any better, more durable than the Fina with a cost difference if up $1500?
If any of u Wet Edge Primera or Pebble Fina owners care to comment, I would really appreciate it. Or if u own any Pebble or Wet Edge and can comment plz do so.
If price was not or had not been the factor, did anyone choose plaster vs. one of the aforementioned aggregates?
