Our Team Knows How to Renovate and Resurface Pools

Our team completed a gunite pool renovation in the Village of Laurel Hollow in Nassau County on Long Island NY. The pool has a natural shape to resemble a pond with 2 waterfalls and a natural stone coping.

The freeform pool was designed to create a natural environment with the use of boulders, landscaping, and the materials selected. With multiple usable areas in the backyard, this space has something for everyone.  Freeform pools are the perfect tie-in to your nature-oriented landscaping. With the ability to fit perfectly into any space, these freeform swimming pools are not defined by straight lines or hard angles.

It is essential to remove any loose plaster on the old surface before applying the new plaster coating. At the time of preparation, we will inspect for cracks in the gunite surface and make necessary repairs.  The pool was prepared by starting with the removal of loose old marble dust.

Next, we acid-washed, naturalized, and primed the pool with Bond Kote. Go the EXTRA MILE to get the job done right. On pools with a pre-existing plaster surface, it is highly recommended to apply one coat of Bond Kote before applying a new plaster coating. Bond Kote is used to produce a superior substrate to mechanically bond new pool coatings over existing plaster finishes.

Marble Dusting Pool Surface

We finished the pool with gray marble dust and completed the waterfall and the shelves in the waterfall too.  Marble dust is a smooth plaster finish applied to the gunite pool or spa. It’s a mixture of highly refined white cement and crushed marble. This material can be dyed into many colors or purchased in a specific color and aggregate pattern.  Marble dust is a substance that gives a classic look to the pool because of its clean and smooth characteristics. From other finishes, you can observe that this material is shared among pool owners because it is budget-friendly and straightforward for repairs. Our process of marble dusting offers you a pleasant finish and enhances your pool’s appearance.
