How to Choose the Right Finish for Your Pool

Which kind of pool finish is best for you? It all comes down to achieving the aesthetic look you’re going for when building a pool.

Marble or Travertine

Travertine is a little bit different from marble, but the installation and finish of both are very similar. Marble and travertine are soft and smooth stone finishes that are perfect for pool copings, or edges. These stones are durable and comfortable to hold onto when near the pool edge.

Porcelain Tiles

Porcelain tiles feel smooth, look great for a long time, and are easy to maintain. The only downside is that they easily break with any blunt force. You might want to stay away from this finish if you anticipate a lot of roughhousing in your pool!

Glass Tiles

The beauty of a glass tile finish lies in its versatility. You can opt for a clear tile if you want a lot of light refraction in your pool or you might choose an opaque tile to get a smooth finish minus the sparkle.

Glass tiles let you get creative with mosaic patterns and unique color schemes. They also come with a wide price range to suit any budget while never compromising on elegance.

Diamond Brite

Diamond Brite is a special quartz-cement blend that gives swimming pools vibrant and varying hues of blue and green. You can choose your Diamond Brite combination to color your pool water exactly as you like it. Diamond Brite is also highly long-lasting.

Almost any pool finish you choose will get you stunning results. To make your decision, you’ll have to see some samples in person.
