Refinish your pool with Fiberglass

Westwood BeforeWestwood AfterPlaster vs. Fiberglass

  Pool Conditions  Plaster  Fiberglass
Rough Surfaces As plaster wears, roughness increases. Always smooth. No scratched feet and toes.
Structural Cracks Any substantial pool movement can cause cracks and leaks. Adds structural strength to pool shell. Prevents leaking.
Blemishes – Stains Little resistance to stains and blemishes even if surface has been recently applied. Resistance to stains with easily cleaned surface.
Algae Resistance Algae adheres to porous surface. Smooth, dense, non-porous surface prevents algae from adhering.
Chemical Demand High chemical requirement at all times. Reactive surface Noticeable reduction chemical usage due to the inert nature of fiberglass. Makes pool chemicals more efficient.
Attractiveness Unsightly when stained/deteriorated Maintains attractive appearance.
Durability Depends on application. Re-plastering often separates from original surface (poor adhesion). Material limitations reduce the durability of plaster. The superior corrosion resistant and inert properties of fiberglass ensure exceptional durability.
Water chemistry Very sensitive to incorrect water chemistry. Plaster surface easily compromised Inert surface less sensitive to out-of-balance water chemistry.
Life Expectancy Varies. Depends on water chemistry, maintenance regime, plaster mix, and application technique. Exceeds that of plaster. Time tested with 25 years industry experience.
Leachable Material Salts/plaster constituents will adhere, and create a very abrasive surface. Due to the inert nature of fiberglass, no leachable material is available to cause roughness. Surface remains smooth.
Start-up Complicated. Requires brushing and attention. Simple. No brushing needed. Allow to cure, then start-up.
