How Much does it Cost to Resurface a Pool?



Resurface or Remodel?

resurface and remodelingIf you have had your pool for some years, apart from resurfacing your pool, why not take the opportunity and have it remodeled at the same time? Although this may sound expensive it doesn’t necessarily have to be thanks to the wide range of pool finishes available. Whatever your taste or budget there will be a pool finish to match.

Styles change so what might have been your perfect surface a few years ago may look slightly dated or you may not be aware of the range of products available so it is always worthwhile discussing the options with your pool contractor.

The Cost to Resurface a Pool

Once you have decided on whether or not you wish to remodel the pool or simply get it resurfaced the best thing to do it to talk to your local pool company. They will be able to provide an estimate of the price. If you have any thoughts about remodeling this is also your opportunity to discuss what opportunities are available.

The actual cost to resurface a pool will depend on the finish chosen but is determined largely by size and labor. The cost of materials will vary but as a rough estimate can be anywhere upward from $4/ft2.

The costs are also influenced by the type of preparation required. If pools have to be sandblasted or acid washed in order to remove the existing surface this can also increase the costs.

Another point to consider is that if your pool is located in an area with a high water table it may be necessary to use a water pump to remove water from both inside and outside the pool, and this can increase the costs.

Refilling Costs During Resurface

After your pool has been resurfaced it will also need refilling and this can be quite expensive, especially if it is a large pool and you need to hire a tanker of water in order to refill it. This needs to be included when calculating the costs for resurfacing the pool. After all, there is no point having a beautiful, re-surfaced pool if you can’t afford the water to go in it.
Can I Re-Surface the Pool Myself?

Although in theory it is possible to resurface it is not recommended. A pool is an important feature in your home so having invested in it initially it is worthwhile maintaining your investment and ensuring that it is looking its best. This is not to say that you are not excellent at DIY (of course you are!), but simply that some things are best left to the professionals.

Your local pool company will be happy to give you a free estimate of the costs involved in re-surfacing Florida pools so it is worthwhile giving them a call rather than tackling this task.
