Revitalize Your Pool: High-Quality Pool Resurfacing Services

Expert Swimming Pool Resurfacing & Restoration

What is Pool Resurfacing?

Pool resurfacing or refinishing can restore your pool to its original appearance. The process involves removing and replacing your pool’s existing finish or top surface layer, which will improve its lifespan.

How Often Does a Pool Need to be Resurfaced?

How often a pool needs to be resurfaced depends on the type of pool, the harsh environment, and the amount of use. However, in general, most pools need resurfacing every eight to ten years. If you’re unsure if your pool needs resurfacing, a pool inspection from a pool service company can identify whether it needs resurfacing or any other swimming pool maintenance or repairs.

Pool Resurfacing Options


Plaster is a durable, highly functional, and affordable pool resurfacing material, which makes it one of the most commonly used materials for swimming pool resurfacing. Plaster is available in a variety of colors and designs.


 A quartz pool surface combines polymer-modified cement with quartz aggregate, which gives it strength and water resistance. Quartz surfaces also give your pool a stain-resistant finish and are available in a variety of colors and color combinations.


Pebble surfaces are made of smooth stones and round aggregates layered in cement. They give pool owners diverse color combinations to choose from. Pebble is incredibly durable and has an average lifespan of 15 to 20 years.

What are the Steps to Resurface a Swimming Pool?

Knowing the main steps to resurface a swimming pool can help you understand the process and what to expect.

  1. Draining the Water

Your pool must be properly drained before any work can begin. If the area where you live requires any specifications for water drainage, you must follow them.

  1. Prepping the Pool

Once your pool has been drained, its surface needs to be cleaned and prepared. All debris, such as leaves and dirt, should be removed. Rust stains or other discolorations should be addressed, and any necessary patching of minor cracks should be taken care of.

  1. Resurfacing

The resurfacing step starts with priming the pool’s surface. A primer, typically an epoxy primer, is applied to the entire surface of the pool and allowed to dry before the appropriate refinishing solution is applied. Your desired resurfacing solution will be applied in several coats or layers, and each layer must dry before the next is applied.

Swimming Pool Resurfacing Cost

Swimming pool resurfacing costs vary greatly and depend on the following factors:

  • the size, shape, and condition of your swimming pool
  • the surface area of your pool
  • the resurfacing material you choose to use
  • where you live

In general, depending on the resurfacing material you choose, you can expect to pay between $3 and $15 per square foot. To get a better idea of the cost, request a quote from Lone Star Pool Services.

Pool Renovation Frequently Asked Questions

What does it cost to redo pool plaster in Katy, TX?
The cost to redo pool plaster varies depending on your pool’s size, shape, and condition. Typically, pool replastering costs between $5,000 and $10,000.
How long before you can go swimming in a resurfaced pool?
Your pool service professional will advise you of the exact time you must wait before swimming in your resurfaced pool based on the resurfacing material used. However, in most cases, you can swim four to seven days after your resurfaced pool has been filled and had its initial water treatment.
What is the difference between replastering and resurfacing a pool?
Pool replastering completely removes the existing plaster in your pool. After the underlying surface has been prepared, new plaster is applied. Pool resurfacing involves cleaning, prepping, and using a new finish to the top layer of your pool’s interior surface.

  • flaking or peeling plaster

How long does it take to resurface a pool?

However, on average, a team of pool professionals working between eight and ten hours daily will take five to fourteen days to resurface your swimming pool.
