I get a lot of questions after quoting a pebble interior (Wet-Edge) product for the Swimming Pool Plaster Resurface. Potential customers will ask their friends or neighbors about pebble and they will sometimes tell them it’s rough.

The key to any lasting project that involved applying a coating would be proper prepared foundation. This is true for the swimming pool plaster application resurface job. It would be impossible to determine what condition of the existing surface looks like from the view of the deck and the swimming pool filled with water and how many times its been resurfaced without removal of the prior layers.   For this reason our team includes a set amount of prep work included. Unless otherwise noted.  We can get a better grasp of the condition of your existing pool
