Pool Replastering & Resurfacing
Over time, the plaster in your pool will become chipped, cracked, and even stained. The longer you wait to replaster your pool, the rougher it will get and the more your pool will be at risk for leaks or other damage. When it comes to pool replastering, Houston homeowners trust ABC to give their pools a smooth surface and an entirely updated look so they can make the most of their time spent poolside.
Choose ABC to Make Your Pool Like New
Although the plaster in every pool will degrade over time, there are many variables which dictate exactly when your pool should be replastered.
Signs you may need to consider pool resurfacing:
- Mineral stains,
- Patches of exposed gunite
- An uncomfortably rough pool floor
- Appearance of dirt between cracks along the bottom of pool
What can you expect when you choose the pool care experts at ABC?
There are many factors to consider when taking on a huge project such as replastering and resurfacing, such as design style and budget. Our technicians guide you through the entire process and answer any questions you may have before, during and after. There are many options to choose from for your plaster, tile color, and step or ladder options, each with their own warranties.
A pool typically needs to be replastered anywhere between seven to twenty years. When you choose ABC Home & Commercial services, our pool care experts will walk you through each step of the two-day process:
- On day 1, our technicians will drain and acid wash the pool. Once that’s done, we will release the hydrostatic pressure by drilling holes in the bottom of your pool and then we’ll remove plaster below the tile line. Finally, we’ll prepare the surface for new plaster, fix any hollow spots, and apply a substrate to help the new plaster bond.
- On day 2, our pool resurfacing experts will fill hydrostatic holes from the previous day, apply new plaster to the entire surface, and install a new anti-vortex plate to the main drain cover. Lastly, we’ll reinstall any pool lighting and refill the pool.

After your pool is replastered, your pH levels will quickly rise, so you will need to add pH reducer to the water. For the first month or so, test your pool water daily and give the pool a thorough brushing. Daily brushing will help get plaster dust into your pool filter so it can be backwashed. Your calcium and hardness, alkalinity and chlorine will also need to be adjusted.
Keeping your pool chemicals at recommended levels will extend the life of your pool plaster and keep your pool safe for swimming.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does replastering a pool cost?
The cost of having your pool replastered depends on the size of your pool, the time it takes to remove your loose plaster and the finish you choose. Many colors and varieties of finishes are now available. You can choose from marble, quartz or pebble finishes.
ABC will give you a no-obligation estimate to get your pool replastered. Our inspector will take a look at your pool, learn more about the finish you desire, tell you how much the project will cost and how long it will take to complete. Once you approve the estimate, we can schedule the work to begin.
Do I need to be at home when my pool is being replastered?
To be able to give you an accurate estimate and answer all of your questions, we recommend meeting with you during the first visit. When the project is underway, in most cases, homeowners can be at work while their pool is being replastered. We just ask that you provide us with access to your pool area and keep your pets indoors.
After we complete the work, our technicians will provide you with a detailed list of next steps to make any needed adjustments to pool chemicals so you can enjoy your pool again.
Do I have to retile when I replaster my pool?
Our experienced pool technicians can use a saw cut to chip plaster from the area where the pool meets your tile so you don’t have to retile. You may choose to retile, however, if you pick a plaster finish or color that doesn’t match your existing tile. ABC can help with any sized pool renovation project.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“I would definitely recommend ABC!! They were professional, courteous, and did a great job. During the treatment my blinds had to be removed, and they graciously put them back up before they left. Blair came three weeks later to do a follow-up check and was extremely friendly and helpful. He gave me more information and suggestions in regards to staying bed bug free. He even carried my large Amazon package into the garage for me. I would definitely recommend them for all your pest control needs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
“Do your research, but this is the company to choose for your pest and rodent control. A new townhouse community is being developed in an adjacent wooded field, so all these woodland creatures started relocating to our established neighborhood. I get it, this land was theirs before it was ours, but after 20 years, they had no right to move into my house rent free. The cute hares/ rabbits were ok at first. They would flop around, and the worst they would do is leave small chocolate eggs in the yard. But when we heard scurrying in the attic, our anxiety levels started to rise. We were already overwhelmed by a pipe bursting in the garage in February due to a flash freeze. Then we noticed droppings as the restoration company came and cleared out the garage. But we really didn't connect all the dots because simultaneously we were caring for my 85 year old grandmother who was on hospice care from terminal breast cancer. So our hands were a little full at the time. But when we saw evidence that there was probably a mouse or something, we had to make it a priority. I called 3 or 4 local companies for quotes. 2 came to the house and 2 acted like they could care less about actually securing my business but were willing to quote hundreds of dollars for the service. One thing that stood out was the other companies said they would plug the holes leading into the house, but 2 said they don't go into the attic. Well that's where we heard them and so it didn't make sense to not go in the attic to hunt them down. Then Kirby from ABC came out. He did a thorough inspection and designed a plan to attack the problem. They definitely weren't the cheapest company, but they provided the best proposal with the strongest warranty. So we pulled the trigger. The crew was very professional and plugged holes and set traps. And the we waited. But there were no dead mice for weeks. So they came back out and found more holes to plug. Then the rodents got more desperate. One was bold enough to entire the kitchen at night. I was ready to burn down the entire house. Frustration was level 10. By this point my grandmother had passed away. Grief plus phobia and a general sense of absolute exhaustion had settled in. All the techs that came out were nice, friendly, professional and courteous, BUT we were sick of the rats running our house. I was also frustrated by what seemed to be a long wait between reporting sightings and an available appointment time. Mark Rodriguez came out and did a good job observing the situation and he realized that a supervisor was needed for a solution. Enter Kenneth! He was absolutely amazing. Between crawling through the attic and discovering new holes to tracking down a food source (a case of mac snd cheese boxes) in the garage that my grandmother left months before her passing (she was always prepared for when her great-grandchildren came over), Kenneth understands the mind of a mouse and the rationale of a rat. He made it his mission to eliminate these evils. And one by one, he did. Kenneth is a hero in our household. He will be receiving a Christmas card this year. My grandmother's dying wish was to rid the house of these invaders, and Kenneth and his team were able to accomplish that. It was worth ever penny for the complete customer care and warranty on the work. If you are looking for a quality solution, you've found it. Be patient, because rodents can be tricky and hard to eradicate, but ABC is committed to the long haul.”
