We work with customers looking to re-plaster their pool with standard white plaster, as well as those looking to change the look of their pool with upgraded plaster options:

Replacing the tile and coping can add a few more steps.
Pool Tile Replacement - New Pool Tile
A perfect time to replace pool tile is during a pool re-plastering. That being said, we can replace the tile without new plaster. The pool will still need to be drained so that we can demolish the existing tile and set the new tile chosen.
Pool Coping Replacement
In a coping only replacement, the entire pool appears to change.Sometimes we also replace the spa veneer and spa spillway. Whenever we replace the coping, we will have to drain the pool, perform a light acid wash on the plaster as we clean up our mess, and replace the mastic.
A few coping options:
- Oklahoma Blend Flagstone (pictured above)
- Leuders (many options and one of our favorites)
- Custom Concrete Sections
- Colorado Red Flagstone
- Pennsylvania Bluestone
When the coping stone is being set, we try to ensure the largest sections of stone be used, resulting in less mortar joints and a smoother look.
Mastic Replacement - Caulking Between Coping And Pool Decking
Mastic is the caulking between your pool decking and the coping (brick or stone) around the perimeter of your pool. Maintaining good mastic prevents water from seeping down under your pool decking and behind the shell of your pool. This is especially important to correct before the winter arrives and freezing temperatures turn water into ice, causing damage to your pool.
