Pool Resurfacing Design & Build

Whether resurfacing a pool deck or pool shell, we use only the best materials.

What is pool resurfacing?

Pool resurfacing is the process of renovating and refreshing the interior surface of a swimming pool or pool deck, typically by removing the old finish and applying a new one, to enhance its appearance, durability, and water-tightness.

There’s some general confusion regarding what “resurfacing” actually means. In the pool industry, we think of it in terms of replastering the pool. Often, our clients are referencing their pool deck. It’s because of this, we’ll attempt to describe both on this page. There are 3 levels of pool plaster: white marcite, quartz, and pebble. There are 4 general levels of pool deck resurfacing: stained, spray decking, stamped overlay products, and Carvestone.

Pool Resurfacing Styles & Materials

Blue Pebble Plaster

A mini pebble plaster is the premier plaster option on the market. It isn't nearly as rough as a large pebble finish but has all the forgiveness and durability a pebble finish has to offer.

White Marcite Plaster

Sometimes simpler is better. A white marcite plaster allows the decking, tile and coping to shine. It’s the smallest investment and has been utilized throughout Texas for decades.

Blue Quartz Plaster

A quartz based plaster can provide an elevated, decorative look when compared with a white marcite option. The main issue is that it’s far less forgiving and repairable when compared with a pebble.

1x1 Porcelain Tile

Instead of using a standard plaster material, you can also use a tile option. When considering this option, remember that anywhere you place grout will create a maintenance cycle moving forward.

1x2 Glass Tile

A glass tile sparkles beneath the water and provides an elegant feel that cannot be achieved with a plaster product. It can be slippery on a beach entry so you’ll want to be cautious with where it’s placed.

Carvestone Pool Deck

When resurfacing a pool deck, Carvestone is the premier concrete overlay on the market. Not only is it composed of limestone and quartz but it’s custom colored as well as hand-carved and textured.

Types of Pools We Resurface


Whether it’s because of a lack of space or a lack of desire to have an entire pool, a spool (spa pool) can be the perfect solution. Be aware, this is not a cost-effective process and isn’t a small investment.

Symmetrical Pools

Those of us with OCD cannot stand when something is out of balance, especially when it’s something as large as a pool. A symmetrical pool can balance the space and settle our spirit.

Raised Spa Pools

Adding a raised pool adds a level of interest to your pool. It can also add a water feature. It signifies the spa (hot tub) is a statement and intended to be the focal point of the space.

Champagne Spa Pools

A champagne spa is effectively a spa that spills over into the pool on all 4 sides. It’s beautiful and allows for the perimeter of the pool to be square as it’s contained inside the pool itself.

Pool Resurfacing Installation Process

1. Surface Prep

Regardless of the selected pool, we’ll start by removing the existing plaster and creating room for the new application.

2. Tailoring

We begin by listening as your pool needs to be built specifically for the way you intend to use the space.

3. Crafting

Once we’re plastering the pool itself, the final result will come down to our ability to execute on a successful application.

4. Walkthrough

There’s not much better than the first time you dive into your new pool. We’re glad to help you get there.

Pool Resurfacing Costs

Pool resurfacing costs are about as you’d expect. The least expensive plaster application is a white marcite application whereas the largest investment is the pebble finish. We no longer install a quartz based plaster as it has a tendency to mottle and lacks repairability. On the decking, Carvestone is a much more beautiful and durable overlay than a spray deck and it’s priced accordingly.
