Quality work at a fair price. What a concept!
Yes you have dozens-maybe even hundreds- of options for resurfacing, remodeling or building your pool. And the question we get all the time is “why should we go with Alan Smith Pool Plastering?” To be up front with you, we’re not the cheapest contractor. We’re also not the fastest. If you are looking for fast and cheap, head down to the Home Depot or Lowe’s or call around to some of our competitors. That being said, our work is not exclusively for the rich and famous either.
Our Typical Pool Remodeling Client
In fact, our typical customer has a 15,000 – 25,000 gallon pool, makes between $75,000-$130,000 in household income, and spends between $8,000-$18,000 with us on their swimming pool and spa renovation (yes several choose to upgrade and remodel their entire backyard with pavers, patio covers, masonry and outdoor lighting). In other words, we cater to people who can afford to do the job right the first time. People who want the job to outlast their lifetime, and we don’t want to save a few dollars by using cheap materials and labor instead of quality products and experienced craftsmen. How long do you want your new swimming pool surface to last?
Hydroblasting, The Best Method For Replastering
We are proud to offer our customers high-quality hydroblasting services.
Hydroblasting is a safer, more efficient way to prep your pool surface for replastering. The water jetting method gives you the best bonding platform for the new plaster to adhere to. The high water pressure literally carves out the old plaster surface to the original gunite or will leave such a rough profile on the old plaster that the new surface has the best chance for long term bonding. Water jetting avoids gunite damage and shell trauma and is also dust-free. Old ways to remove you plaster include jackhammering and sandblasting.
Jackhammering is the most commonly used method because it is fast and cheap. The down side is that stripping is strongly discouraged by pool engineers because every time a pool is stripped, it can weaken the pool shell, expose structural steel, and can cause micro fractures and bruising of the pool shell. Also, this is a very dusty process.
Sandblasting is similar in cost to jackhammering and is non-invasive to the pool shell, but has a higher fail rate of bonding for the new plaster.
For those reasons Alan Smith Pools highly recommends hydroblasting to all our clients. Jackhammers can accidentally remove layers of gunite and weakening your pool’s surface while it also can end up exposing rebar and damage gunite.
