Finding the Right Type of Pool Finish

Burleigh pools finishes

Are you considering constructing a pool? Perhaps you want to remodel your existing one? Whichever the case, it's essential to carefully choose the right type of pool finish for your project. That’s because the finish will not only affect the look of your swimming pool but also its longevity. 

The type of finish you will use will also dictate the materials to be used and the cost of pool construction. However, with so many finish options offered today, it's not easy to decide which one to choose. To help you make an informed decision, let's take a look at all the types of pool finish you can choose from.

Pebble pool finish is a step-up design from a standard concrete finish. It is pebble, 50% glass and pebble or 100% glass into the concrete to provide a more attractive aesthetic. A pebble finish lasts forever, as it is more resistant to chemicals and can be fixed reasonably easily. It is getting more attention today as it offers a luxurious look, and is more resistant to damage. An pebble pool finish can also be customised to give a unique colour and texture to the pool.

A tile-based pool finish is a popular option that is typically made of porcelain, ceramic or glass. This type of finish has a vast range of design and aesthetic options. It offers a modern look with unlimited colour combinations, providing you with the most excellent choice of all finishes. You can also bring out its artsy style by painting the tiles to match the theme of your pool. Marbles and granites are used to finish natural pools while glass tiles can reflect and magnify the effect of the light on the water. Glass tiles are often used to achieve a shimmering bright pool.

Out of all the pool finishes, tiles are the most expensive. The process of installation is much longer compared with a pebble pool finish.
