There are many Pool Finishes on the market to pick from, and trying to make a decision can make you dizzy to not say the least.
Here are some quick tips as to the categories and durability of the different finishes on the market today from hardest to least durable.
- Pebble-Tec, Pebble finish Products are extremely durable and many come with a lifetime warrantee if installed with an authorized Applicator.
- 100% Quartz Product, Quartz is one of the hardest substances know to man and when used as the only aggregate in a pool finish its durability and price point make it hard to compete. For the investment SGM Diamond Brite is a the “Best Bang for the Buck” it comes in a vast assortment of colors and will out last any of the Marcite Blends that are currently on the market being taunted as Diamond Brite “LOOK ALIKES” Their is only one 100% Quartz product on the market today and used world wide in theme parks, hotels and resorts- SGM Diamond Brite.
- Marcite Finishes are the least durable products on the market today. Marquis, Krystal Crete, Marcite, Premix, CLI, Florida Stucco, are all blends made up mostly of Marble Dust that is extremely soft and will have a useful lifespan of 3 to 5 years. However they are inexpensive in nature because of the ingredients used in the products. Their look is close to the Quartz in appearance so it makes them a popular choice amongst home owners that do not intend on living in their homes long term. Beware of Applicator trying to convince you that these products are as durable and high quality as the 100% Quartz Product of Diamond Brite, there is no comparison.
