Pool Finishes to Consider For Your In-Ground Pool

From HFS Financial

Many people don’t realize that an inground concrete swimming pool has a finished surface.  The fact that the concrete gets a surface treatment is often misunderstood and overlooked by the swimming pool consumer.  Originally the only choice for a pool surface was paint, but that has changed drastically over the decades.  Marcite plaster, the next evolution of pool finishes has been steadily replaced with exposed aggregate pool finishes.  The exposed aggregate genre has expanded and evolved into pebble and glass type finishes, making the swimming pool service aesthetically pleasing as well as utilitarian.  This post from HFS Financial discusses the different pool surfaces available as well as the pros and cons of them.

Are you investing in a swimming pool? If so, congratulations on making the first step in ultimate summer entertainment! When designing and implementing an in-ground pool to your current space, you have several decisions to make regarding style and function.

The Use of Tile and Liner

Tile is not technically a pool finish, but it is a popular feature for in-ground pools. Tile features are low maintenance, durable, and available in countless colors and designs. The use of tile to create mosaics on your pool’s floor and walls is great way to give your pool extra aesthetic appeal. If you have a vinyl pool, your only option is to finish it with liner. Like tile, liners come in several colors and designs. Liners are made for durability, but should be maintained regardless.
