FIBERGLASS vs. PLASTER for RESURFACING SWIMMING POOLS

The following are several reasons to consider fiberglass as an alternative to re-plastering a swimming pool:

    Fiberglass is much stronger than plaster.

      Fiberglass has its own structural integrity regardless of what it is applied to, while plaster is brittle and relies upon the surfaces it is applied to for most of its strength.

      Common failures with re-plastered pools are: Cracking, Chipping and “Pop-Offs”. These occur because new plaster applied to an existing Gunnite/Plaster pool does not bond well. Fiberglass does bond well to any existing swimming pool, and is not susceptible to these failures.

      The flexible characteristics of fiberglass allow it to withstand earth movement and shifts in a swimming pool much longer, while plaster will crack and chip almost immediately.

    Fiberglass provides superior resistance to stains, algae, and discoloration.

      Fiberglass is nonporous; therefore algae, even black algae, will not adhere to it.

      The two most common pool stains, copper oxide and calcium, adhere to plaster’s porous surface and are almost impossible to remove entirely. Acid washing is the only way to fight these stains. This method damages the pool surface each time making it more susceptible to both staining and algae. The smooth finish of a CCS fiberglass shell, making it resistant to these common problems.

      It is common for plaster to discolor within a few short months which gives an uneven pattern to the look of the pool surface. CCS finish coat gives each pool a uniform color and will stay this way for the life of the surface.

    A fiberglass shell reduces operational costs of the pool.

      Re-plastering will usually last only 10-12yrs. A CCS fiberglass shell will last longer resulting in less money spent over the lifetime of your pool.

      Since organic material is more easily removed from the pool, less chemicals are needed to maintain an acceptable sanitary pool reading residual. No chemicals are absorbed into the pool water from fiberglass so proper pH is easier to maintain.

      The nonporous fiberglass surface is easier to maintain. A pool with a fiberglass finish is easier to clean, brush and vacuum.

    Fiberglass is a superior pool resurfacing product.

      Our finish-coat stays much smoother than a plaster finish and is also much whiter. Using a white finish-coat will result in the water appearing bluer and more inviting.

      Fiberglass is a proven product that has been used for many years in numerous industrial applications including automobiles, airplanes, industrial tank liners and spas. It has been used in the area of resurfacing swimming pools for over thirty years.

    After spending 12 years in the swimming pool industry, I am convinced that fiberglass is a superior surface for a swimming pool and will, in the long run, be far less expensive.

    What makes CCS the best?

    I am totally convinced that fiberglass, when applied correctly, is far superior to any other surface for a swimming pool.

    What makes CCS the BEST COMPANY to renovate and resurface your swimming pool?

    CCS firmly believes in doing a thorough, precise job that both our customers and we will be proud to "show off”! It takes our company a little longer than most other companies to fiberglass a pool because we do several unique time-consuming steps that we feel result in a better end product.


    1. Before fiberglassing, we take the extra time to acid wash or power-wash the pool surface to be sure it is clean and porous.
    2. We use tested procedures in undercutting and fiber-puttying fixtures and preparing the tile for fiberglass to assure a good bond.

      If the tile is not being replaced, we under-cut the tile and x cut around the pool fittings then use hydraulic cement under the tile and around all fittings; this locks the fiberglass shell in position and prevents leaks. This part of the process is unique to our company as far as I know.

      We are the only company that primers the pool by spraying a resin on and then rolling it into the porous surface to obtain maximum penetration and bonding. This unique procedure provides a better bond between the pool surface and the fiberglass.

      Using Owens Corning Fiberglass Matting. We apply the fiberglass mat and pigmented resin onto the primered surface and roll it out with especially designed rollers to minimize any possible air bubbles between the layers.

      At this point the pool looks good and that’s where other companies stop. We come back, after the shell has hardened and sand the pool down again. We then apply our Finish Coat to add strength and beauty to the shell and give the pool a final finish that is smoother and whiter. The resin manufactures tell us that we are the only company in the bay area that finishes pools in this manner. The difference is a shell that is STRONGER, THICKER, SMOOTHER, WHITER, LOOKS WONDERFUL AND LASTS LONGER. When comparing our pools to any of our competitor’s the difference is very apparent, even to the untrained eye.

      We have experienced company representatives who will come to your home and will have the knowledge to discuss pool equipment, pool chemistry, fiberglass resurfacing, pool remodeling, tile, coping stone, brick, rock, etc.

      We have all the equipment to core drill the pool or to install new equipment, and we have trained workers to do the job right.

      When resurfacing the coping stone or replacing it with brick or rock we deliver a professional job at below competitive prices.

       

    Every year we remove and replace at least one fiberglass shell that was done by a company that cut corners, usually by either failing to prepare the pool surface properly or by applying too thin of a coat of glass on the pool.

    All in all, we are very proud of our company and the job we do and feel that you will be extremely happy using Certified Construction Services as your pool remodeling company. We look forward to being of service to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact us
