Wonderful pool finish ideas for you to copy
Polished aggregate finishes comprise of finely crushed colored stones, like granite, quartz, or marble. Post the hand application of the aggregate finish (using a trowel) to the pool shell, it is thoroughly polished to bring out the stone’s lustre & have a smooth surface. Flecks of colored granite or quartz impart a decorative sheen to the pool finish and extend the plaster's life by 12- 20 years. Polished aggregate finishes have a timeless allure that works well with classic pool designs.
Exposed aggregate finishes contain glass beads or tiny river pebbles. Like polished aggregate finishes, exposed aggregate finishes are also hand applied by expert craftsmen. However, on completion of the application and while the surface is still wet, the new finish is power washed using a mix of water & muriatic acid. This wash is meant to remove the top layer of concrete and expose the colorful glass beads or pebbles within. Exposed aggregates in the plaster add traction to the pool surface, and their varied sizes & colors allow for a range of color combinations & textures.
The rustic look of pebble finishes complements the natural surroundings; pebble finishes are commonly used for lagoon-style or tropical pool designs.
Glass bead finishes capture the sparkle of the sunlight & lend a 3-D effect to the pool surface. These finishes can inject an exquisite magnificence into any pool design, but are the best options for enhancing the visual effect of modern pool environments.
