We have had an unusually wet spring in DFW this year. As such, the 5-8 wk pool build that got started in Jan is still not completed. This weekend they tried to beat some rain and plaster the pool. Unfortunately, right as they were finishing a pop-up shower hit the site and lasted about 5-10 minutes. Today the owner called to inform me that they lost the pool and would have to re-plaster it. In fact, the plaster company called the owner to tell them they already knew they lost the pool when it started to rain. We are using StoneScape mini-midnight in color with abolone shell.
In any event - I didn't get a good feeling for what to expect. They were physically power hammering out the areas near the pipes and lights but from what I can tell, it looks like they're just paining the surface white. Is that all they do? Just paint it and plaster right over the top or should they be actually jack-hammering all of the old plaster completely out of the pool?
Thought I'd ask the forum to see if anyone knows for sure. I don't want them to cut corners and while I've had trouble getting progress with this company, the workmanship to date looks very good. Here is a quick pic as of a few mins ago vs Saturday when they were finishing up.
