Pool Resurfacing: The Best Option?

Backyard Swimming Pool with Diving BoardSo it’s time to resurface your pool. What should you do to get the best value for your money? Which option will take the least amount of work and last the longest? What method will be most effective?

According to InTheSwim, there are two options. You can re-plaster the surface of your pool or even use swimming pool paint.

Plastering will last about 15-20 years but will cost between $4000 to $6000. Painting will last from 2-7 years and will cost about $1000. Both methods will make your pool look new, and you can customize the color of either the plaster or the paint to your liking. In short, you may spend less using the painting strategy, but you’ll have to take on the project more often. The decision is up to you.
