On average, pools need resurfacing every eight to 10 years. But, if you notice some of these signs, it might be time for maintenance:
Like fiberglass boats and pools, gelcoat is a hard, durable coating. Gelcoat can fade over time, even though it is durable. Chalking, cracking or discoloration are some of the most common signs that gelcoat has gone bad.
When the vinyl liner needs replacing, it can cost between $1,000 and $3,500 in both material and labor. A complete replacement is really the only way to resurface a vinyl pool that’s become dry and brittle. If you take into additional costs, such as refilling the pool and restocking chemicals, it may run you closer to $4,500.
