As you plan your swimming pool installation or renovation, you’re likely hoping for a pool that is just as beautiful as it is functional. We have some good news: With a wide variety of pebble interior options available, we can help you identify a look that suits your backyard as well as your practical needs.
While you can certainly opt for the traditional plaster finish, it will need to be replaced after 8 to 12 years. That’s why many homeowners are considering pebble or quartz aggregates to extend the life of their pool’s interior.
Aggregate pebble finishes provide the most “natural” look and feel. If you want to feel as though you’re swimming in your own private tropical lagoon, an aggregate pebble finish is for you! In the past, some pool owners felt that the larger pebbles were a bit hard on hands and feet, but the newer versions are considerably more comfortable. That means you can go for the look you want, without sacrificing comfort.
Mini pebble aggregates also provide a textured look, in a variety of colors, but are known to be a bit smoother and more modern in appearance. Keep in mind that the color of your pool finish will influence the appearance of the water. That’s why so many pebble aggregates are constructed in shades of blue and green. But for an added pop of texture and visual interest, bits of black, brown, and/or white can be added as well.
Both types of pebble interiors are known to last 12 to 14 years, on average.
Quartz options offer a luxurious upgrade from standard pebble aggregate. Not only is quartz extremely strong and durable; it can be personalized in a variety of colors to suit any design scheme. Because quartz aggregate creates a textured look, the occasional scratch in your pool’s surface will be well disguised. But because quartz is such a hard mineral, scratches tend to be cosmetic in nature only. Quartz is one of the most durable pool surfacing materials, so the initial investment tends to pay off in the long run. A quartz pool interior could outlast plaster by 10 years or more!
