One of the advantages of installing a custom inground pool is that you can customize the design to perfectly go with the design aesthetics you are looking for. One place that’s perfect for customization is the finish, which is used on your Austin backyard pool. Pool finishes differ quite greatly in texture and look. It is worth taking the time choosing the kind of pool finish, which is perfect for you as a pool owner.

Pool Finishes

Here are different kinds of pool finishes that can help you choose when adding the finishing touches to your backyard oasis.

Plaster and gunite:

Plaster and gunite mixes are versatile and durable. They are a great choice for people looking for a clean, appealing, and smooth finish. These pool finishes often have a mixture of marble and cement, though you can use additions like colored tiles and quartz for a smart aesthetic effect. Quartz is often a sought after option and can add an appealing sparkling look to your pool. It will illuminate the pool area and make it look more appealing.

Paint finishes:

Pool paint is a minimalist way of finishing your pool and can provide a simple, smooth effect. This is often an epoxy paint or heavy-duty rubber, which is resistant to chlorine. Pool paint finishes that are applied directly onto the pool’s surface concrete, are added after the swimming pool area concrete cures. They are often very low maintenance as well.

Aggregate surfaces:

Aggregate surfaces are a hugely sought after option. Aggregates often consist of a concrete coating with many pebble additions to provide a rocky, stony effect. This type of finish is appealing, and can also be effective in assisting to minimize a pool’s walls or floor slipperiness.

Our professionals can incorporate an array of different kinds of pebbles and stones into an aggregate finish. This will let a pool owner choose a finish that’s suits the design aesthetics of their outdoor space. But some aggregates tend to be rough to the touch, a fact that’s worth considering when selecting a finish.


One of the most sought after pool finishes, tiling, is still a preferred option among pool owners. You can get them in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. Tiling is a great choice for pool owners seeking to add a custom and classy look to their Austin backyard pool. Long-lasting and durable, tiles look stunning when arranged into an elaborate mosaic, when patterned, or when evenly applied.

Your selection of pool finishes can be highly creative and unique, or minimalist. Whichever way, the finish is an important part of the appearance you are seeking to attain.
