Finish Your Pool The Right Way
The finish you choose for your pool depends on a variety of factors – from color scheme to texture. Whatever finish you choose, Rhine Pools can make sure the job is completed correctly.
If you already own a pool and are interested in pool resurfacing, we can easily accommodate you. Many of our existing customers have decided on pool reconstruction as a way to breathe new life into their backyard living space.
Concrete pools are constructed using Gunite or Shotcrete. It is a blend of cement and sand that is mixed with water and then applied to steel reinforcement in the shape of your in ground pool. Concrete pools allow the greatest amount of creativity in the size and shape of your pool. They can also be fitted with hot tubs that spill over, infinity edges, beach entries, tanning shelves, benches, umbrellas, water features, and automatic covers. After installation, your concrete pool can be finished with your choice of plaster, quartzite, or pebble finish.
The fiberglass pools we install are created by Viking Pools. A fiberglass pool is easy to install and comes with a lifetime-limited warranty on the shell and a 20 – year warranty on the finish. Fiberglass pools can be as big as 40′ long by 16′ wide and can be up to 8′ deep. Viking Pools offers a wide variety of shapes you can choose from and the install time is quick. Fiberglass pools are easier to maintain because of their smooth surface and the absence of any chemical reaction between the shell and the water. The fiberglass pools we install can be outfitted with any style coping, diving rocks, LED lights, and automatic covers.
Plaster leaves a smooth finish on concrete pools and is available in a small variety of colors. Most plaster finishes last for 6 to 8 years depending on water conditions and overall care.
Quartzite finishes are comprised of tiny pieces of quartz that glisten and sparkle in the water. Available in multiple colors, Quartzite gives the pool finish a sandy feel. The average life span of a quartzite finish is 8 to 10 years.
