Before I bother getting quotes I an hoping to get an idea what surfaces people like on their pools and perhaps what it costs to have a pool resurfaced

Thanks Gary

Are you talking pool deck surface or the inside of the pool surface?

Pool Deck
Kool Deck is hard to keep clean. Spraycrete is less expensive and easier to do crack repairs and paint over. Ceramic tile can get slippery. Brick pavers can get hot if you don't choose the right color. River rock requires continued maintenance. Spraycrete and painted is my choice.

Interior of Pool
Diamond Brite is a smoother finish but requires refinishing after several years. Pebble Tech and similar brands are a rougher surface but have a lifetime guarantee. Both have a variety of color choices. I prefer Pebble Tech.

Most of my customers that purchase homes with a pool down here aren't familiar with the choices and don't usually express a preference unless they have done research. The pools up north are much different than here in Florida. Ask a pool company what is the most popular surface. I would make a decision based on comfort and maintenance, not necessarily price.

Thanks TamRe

I was talking about the inside of the pool not the deck.

There are a few gouges and a bunch of heavy rust stains from hurricane Charlie.

I want to have the tiles around the inside of the pool replaced ( they are a lovely shade of Plum ) and also have the pool resurfaced in a color that will make the water look a darker blue.

Colors are abundant and each company will show you the standard & upgrade colors. You basically have two choices, as TamRE mentioned: Pebble and Quartz (Krystal Krete, Diamond Brite). Lots of tile choices as well. Neighbor had his re-finished a couple of years ago (just the quartz, not the tiles). I want to say it was like $5,000. Not cheap. Dirty job. Only took 2 or 3 days though.

We had ours done by Superior Pools two years ago at a cost of $4,000. The tiles around the waterline were replaced at a cost of $1,000 and the pool resurfaced with Crystal Stones for an additional $3,000. We opted for the darkest "Standard" color; any darker and there was an additional charge. Very happy with it.

That's what I want to have done, I'm sure the price varies dependent on the color and the type of tile chosen
