Affordable Swimming Pool Plaster Repair Service in Dallas, Plano, & Frisco, TX

IMG_0007For gunite or concrete pools, plaster is the most desirable finish. It comes in several forms and a multitude of color choices. When applied properly, and barring underlying structural problems, plaster provides a barrier between the structure of the pool and the water in which you swim.


A standard question customers ask is, “How do I know when it is time to re-plaster my pool?” The answer is both subjective and objective. Three questions will help you make the important decision to replaster your Dallas, Plano, or Frisco pool.


Water loss can occur based on any number of problems, but in this case, let us focus on a few specific issues. First, cracks in a swimming pool structure can show up through the plaster surface. We will make recommendations regarding cracks on a case-by-case basis. Also, water can leak through many of the penetration points around a pool (pool return inlets, light fixtures, etc). If your pool is losing water from somewhere other than plumbing, resurfacing may be a viable solution combined with other work. Delamination is an industry term that simply means the plaster is separating from the surface beneath it. This occurs because of inadequate preparation prior to resurfacing. We use the plaster manufacturers’ recommended product and procedure for preparation, which usually protects against delamination. If you are experiencing either water loss or delamination, we can recommend a course of action suitable for your specific situation.


As plaster ages, or because of improper chemistry, its surface becomes rough via etching or scaling. When the pain on the feet is unbearable, it may be time to consider re-plastering. Our typical method of “start-up” (care for the first several days of plaster life) allows for a smooth-but-not-slick surface designed to add years of life to the plaster and make for a comfortable swim experience.

Benefits of Plaster Finish

At Select Pool Services, we highly recommend using a plaster finish for your pool in many instances. Not only does it offer a smooth and sleek surface for your pool, but it also has a variety of benefits. Plaster is a cost-effective option that is durable and long-lasting. It can withstand the elements, chemicals, and everyday wear and tear that comes with pool maintenance. Additionally, plaster is a versatile material that can be customized to match any design or style preference. It also provides a non-slip surface, which is essential for ensuring the safety of your family and guests.


Whether the previous plaster choice was not your style or the surface and water chemistry were not properly maintained, aesthetic appeal is the final reason to resurface your pool. Consider your pool a blank canvas on which you can, within reason, customize the look of your pool.
