Pebble Tec is considered the original pebble pool finish. They offer four different versions of an aggregate finish. Pebble Tec uses pure materials that are refined during the manufacturing process while choosing only the deepest, richest of colors. Not only do these finishes look great but they are easy to care, standing up against the test of time.
Beadcrete is an amazing finish that offers a 3D reflective effect by using elegant glass beads. Not only does the finish provide amazing water clarity, but it also creates a crystal-like appearance in the water. It is available in a variety of colors, ultimately allowing you to choose the water color that you’d like in your pool.
Glass tile finishes are incredibly beautiful and are one of the most durable options available when it comes to pool finishes.
