The winter season is here...which means it's a great time for pool maintenance! No matter how attentively you’ve cared for your pool over the past year (or several years), at some point it will need to be resurfaced.
The professionals at American Pool Enterprises, the largest swimming pool management company in the U.S., offer the following pros and cons to help you prepare for your next pool resurfacing project.
Invariably, when you see those telltale cracks, you’ll be confronted with the question of paint versus plaster. But what works best for you isn’t a matter of choosing either/or. You’ll want to look at the age of your pool, where your pool is located, your budget and the current surface of the pool. All of this should be taken into careful consideration.
In other words, there is no easy answer. But a good property manager can present you with a breakdown of each option so you can make an informed decision, with the help of your qualified pool specialist. If you do not have a pool specialist, you can ask your property management company for a certified list of vendors.
In a nutshell: the right finish will depend on you. There may be variables or specifics when it comes to your community association’s pool that makes one option more viable than another. Cost is always a factor as well, and these solutions may be paid for in many different ways from your budget. Your best bet? Talk to a reputable pool company. A great property management company can help you find one. And whether you ultimately choose paint or plaster, it’s the professional who does the job that matters most of all.
