Hello all, we are in the design stage and the pool finish is a BIG financial and desire decision for us. 2 catalogs left from prospective PB's are from Gemstone and NPT. We were leaning towards plaster for financial reasons but understand the builders do not warranty them and want to get it right at first after reading "change order" threads. Another consideration is feel to the foot, we have infants and my wife's feet can be sensitive so the right decision is important. My questions are
Gemstone vs NPT, same quality & cost?
Is mini pebble same as pebble sheen?
Is the quartz finish an economical alternative?
Does the stone or quartz finish offer that much sparkle and warranty to justify?
I am confused why the builders would not warrant the plaster?
Next question is for thread start or continue existing. When I start this "finish thread" do I start a new thread for "Questions for Builder". Thanks for reading.
