When You Use Us For Your Pool Resurfacing in Palm Springs, You’re Getting Quality!
There are many contractors out there who claim to be able to resurface or re-plaster your pool. That’s because lots of businesses know how to apply concrete, tiles, and paint. However, doing this kind of work in a swimming pool is not quite what a general contractor is used to doing. Doing the job right in this field takes specially trained and skilled professionals.
Why is Palm Springs pool resurfacing better?
Out of all the contractors out there who will gladly do anything you want with your pool’s maintenance, you’re sure to find some who will do it cheaper and faster than we will.
But there is an old saying which you have probably heard – You get what you pay for. Do you really want to risk having corners cut and substandard materials used, which will require that someone do the job all over again?
Who our resurfacing clients are
We have been in business for over 21 years, so we have worked with a whole spectrum of clients, both residential and commercial.
The fact is that most of our clients are average middle-class homeowners who treasure and take pride in their beautiful pools and are willing to invest in keeping them in top shape. That’s our favorite customer!
In the simple resurfacing of a $15,000 average-sized pool, typical homeowners spend around $5000 on materials and labor. In the case of a full remodeling of their pool, including the deck, outdoor lighting, spa area, and patio covers, they will spend upwards of $15,000 towards the project.
These are average California homeowners who wish to maintain their pools and lifestyles and know the value of investing in their future. Given that the average homeowner is not wealthy and earns probably $100,000 per year or less, this says a lot. If you are searching Google for experts, then here we are!
What do you get out of the deal?
Our crew of trained, fully insured professionals takes pride in using high-grade materials to help you continue living your dream. And it’s all covered by a ten-year warranty.
While we advertise in the yellow pages, our primary source of new clientele is word-of-mouth referrals from our many happy, satisfied customers. They are such loyal clients because we treat their pool, deck, and surrounding area as our own.
We never take shortcuts, which means any average project will take a bit more time. But, our customers don’t mind at all because they know they are getting quality workmanship. We go the extra mile by ensuring each process is prepped correctly. Also, we use top-grade materials that are strictly applied according to industry standards.
The professional processes we perform
Most of our clients actually have no idea of the proper name for the finishes we use or the specific variations of other surfaces and tiles that we often apply. So, we explain everything and bring along samples that allow you to make an educated selection of what you would like.
The following is just a brief outline of some steps of typical processes we employ to get your pool looking new. That way, when you see our crew diligently doing their part, you will have a better idea of what exactly is going on.
The basics of pool resurfacing
We have a full spectrum of materials to choose from for resurfacing your pool and deck in the Palm Springs area. We have various materials from Portland cement plaster to aggregate, tile for concrete pools, and fiberglass pool resurfacing.
In the case of cement pools and tiled pools and decks, these can last 5 or 10 years between resurfacing. In comparison, a decent fiberglass pool can last around 10 or 15 years before it requires any kind of resurfacing. The most crucial factor is to think ahead to those benchmarks and be sure you catch any serious problems on time.
The following is a brief rundown on the common properties of many materials used in pool resurfacing:
Portland Cement – In an environment of constant exposure to water, the affordable Portland cement is reasonably durable. It can last upwards of 7 years before it requires any maintenance. You can opt for the natural or colored finish.
Aggregate – Portland cement with other materials added to the mix, such as granite, quartz, pebbles, or chunks of tile, is known as aggregate. Diamond Brite resurfacing is one form of aggregate, probably the most chosen in Palm Springs because of its stunning beauty. But close behind is the pebble aggregate because of its natural appearance and affordability.
Fiberglass – Fiberglass pools are popular because of their nonporous nature. Thus, they do not need cleaning nearly as often as cement or aggregate materials. It also typically outlasts those materials.
Tiles – Tiles come in many styles, including the original ceramic tiles, glass tiles, and even porcelain tiles. There is also a spectrum of various sub-styles to choose from. While this is the most costly resurfacing option offered by Palm Springs pool resurfacing companies, it is also the easiest to repair if any chips or cracks appear.
At Palm Springs Resurfacing Company, we are more than happy to address any questions or concerns you have for us concerning your pool or deck resurfacing. We are also experts in non-slip decks, epoxy coatings, repainting, overlay, sealer, expansion joints, drains, drain channels, and drain covers.

The cost of resurfacing your concrete pool
While we would have to schedule a consultation with you to know the specific kind of work you need. We can let you know the many variables that will help determine what kind of costs you may expect.
As you can probably already figure out, your pool’s actual size is the most significant point when it comes to figuring out the costs. The shape is also a critical factor because some shapes are much easier to work with than others. The next largest variable is what materials you choose to use in the project and what additional options you would like to have in the final product. Plain and colored Portland cement are available. They are the most economical finish we offer. However, for a bit more, you can opt for aggregate or other pleasing patterns.
Diamond Brite, which we mentioned earlier, is offered in a wide range of colors. The majority of our Palm Springs pool clients opt for this finish because of its beautiful appearance, durability, and relatively low cost. It is available in a variety of colors to suit your specific needs. This concrete resurfacing option typically only needs an acid wash every five years. This helps maintain its original appearance, which has been known to last upwards of 12 years or more.
Many of our clients who started with a plain concrete pool opted for Diamond Brite when they partnered with us to resurface their pools. That’s because it is not that much more costly than plain cement, but much more attractive and durable. You are free to choose other finishing options we offer as well. Of course, it’s always nice to change the appearance to something new and more exciting when you have your pool resurfaced.
Please feel free to call us any time for a free, on-site consultation, regardless of the final finish you’re looking for. We will be more than happy to set you up with a free quote with no obligation.
Do you have a fiberglass pool?
If you have a fiberglass pool, the pool’s shape isn’t a significant cost factor because it is easy to apply fiberglass gel around curved surfaces. However, factors such as size and finish are still important to consider when determining the final cost.
One of the most significant cost factors unique to fiberglass pools is the condition of the fiberglass. If there is any extensive damage such as cracks or other repairs that must be made, that will add a bit to the cost. But rest assured, we are fiberglass pool repair experts, so regardless of what your pool looks like now, it will look like brand new when we’re finished.
If you call us and give us the general size of your fiberglass pool, we can give you a rough estimate of the cost of resurfacing over the phone.

Our strategy of resurfacing:
First Step – Draining and full inspection:
Obviously, your pool must be drained before any repair or refinishing can be performed. While our crew member is draining your pool, he will conduct a full visual inspection to identify anything that needs attention. He will then perform a test of all pumps and related pool equipment to ensure they are all in good working order.
Second Step – Preparation:
Once the pool has been fully drained and is sufficiently dry, we will begin preparing every surface. This typically involves first covering the entire surrounding area with a protective tarp, sandblasting, a complete stripping of the pool walls, and multi-coating.
Of course, sandblasting can be a bit dusty, but our crew knows how to keep all that to a bare minimum, so you’ll barely notice. At the end of the day, everything will be cleaned up, and all equipment removed, so you won’t even be able to tell we were there.
Third Step – Tiles and Masonry:
By this point, you’ll know what finish you want. However, since this is the last step, you will want to be absolutely sure of your selection. Once we have signed the final agreement, the work will begin.
Typically, tiling can take anywhere from 24 to 36 hours. Masonry can take a day or two, depending on the project.
Fourth Step – Plumbing Inspection:
We want to be sure that the plumbing integrity is intact, and the pipes are correctly sealed to prevent any leaks. We will also perform any other necessary repairs. This will generally take about one working day.
Fifth Step – Applying the Pool Finish:
Once the pool walls have been fully prepped and cleaned, we will begin applying your chosen finish. This is when you start to see what the final product will look like. Usually, this process takes less than three days, depending on the pool’s size and shape.
After installation, an acid wash will need to be performed by trained professionals, if you selected Pebble, Hydrazzo, Beadcrete or Quartz finish. This is routine to ensure proper bonding of these specialized products.
Sixth Step – Filling the Pool & Cleanup:
Our professional crew will never fail to leave your pool spotless at the end of each day. We take every precaution to ensure we leave your property spic and span. So, we always spend a few hours cleaning up anything we may have overlooked. Only then do we actually fill your pool? We will then do one final pass to check for anything out of the ordinary.
Seventh Step – Initial Water Treatment:
To ensure your pool’s new resurfacing application will stand the test of time, we always do initial water treatment. This can take up to a week because adjustments will need to be made to make sure it’s perfect.
If you have your own pool service crew, you would prefer to use, that’s fine! We will be pleased to work with them to achieve just the right water chemistry to guarantee your pool resurfacing will last a long, long time.
