Fibreglass swimming pools are increasingly becoming a favourite of homeowners in Australia, and it’s not hard to see why. They are affordable, look nice, are easy to install and build, and comparatively require less maintenance.

But alongside all these advantages, fibreglass pools have their own unique set of disadvantages as well. From osmosis to chalking, it is advisable for fibreglass swimming pool owners to detect these issues and get their pool makeover with fibreglass pool resurfacing.

What is fibreglass pool resurfacing?

First things first, it is necessary for you to know what exactly is fibreglass pool resurfacing.

Fibreglass pool resurfacing is a cost-effective alternative to pool replacement. If your pool is going through deterioration, fibreglass renovation experts remove the old top coat and repair the pool by eliminating osmosis, cracks and other issues, and apply a new layer of fibreglass to the pool which makes its smooth, non-permeable and dramatically sturdier than before. In the end, the pool renovators apply a high-quality pliable top gel-coat that makes the pool last for 7-13 years looking great.
