Pool Plaster

Eastern Stone features a wide range of pool plaster finishes for your inground pool. With an option for every budget and pool design, we’re ready to create the pool you’ve always imagined.

Classic White Swimming Pool Plaster

Classic White Swimming Pool Plaster is a mixture of Portland cement, marble dust and water. This type of pool plaster is a timeless choice for gunite pools because after the pool is full of water, the surface becomes a breathtaking clean light blue. White pool plaster is an affordable choice for your gunite pool, and with proper maintenance, will last for up to 12 years. Classic White plaster is also a versatile pool finish choice, as it can be mixed with a color pigment for a palette that meets your taste.

Diamond Brite Pool Plaster

Diamond Brite Finishes are blends of selected quartz aggregates and fortified white Portland Cement that are ideal for new gunite pools or for refinishing gunite pools. Available in a variety of colors and textures, Diamond Brite finishes are factory-blended to provide the pool owner with beautiful durable pool coatings. Diamond Brite Pool Plaster can last up to 17 years in a properly maintained pool. Click here to read more about Diamond Brite.

Alternatives for Gunite Swimming Pools

High Build epoxy paint is an alternative to Pool Plaster and Diamond Brite pool finishes. The High Build Epoxy Paint can last up to 12 years in a properly maintained pool. While epoxy pool paint is a solid choice in pool finishes, it can be expensive to remove and replace with a plaster or Diamond Brite finish. The epoxy paint will need to be sandblasted off completely before plastering your gunite pool or applying the Diamond Brite finish. 


If you want to know more about gunite pool finishes, Eastern Stone will be more than happy to assist you. Call Eastern Stone at 518-355-1355 or email us today!


Diamond Brite

Diamond Brite

Diamond Brite is an exposed aggregate pool finish blended from natural quartz aggregate, polymer modified cement and non-fading colorquartz in a stunning variety of colors. This unique interior pool finish is durable, easy to maintain and comfortable to swimmers’ feet.

Unlike traditional marble-based pool plaster, Diamond Brite is made with natural quartz, one of nature’s hardest and purest minerals. Marble aggregates are easily dissolved by pool chemicals causing unsightly staining and rapid deterioration. Diamond Brite’s insoluble quartz aggregate is unaffected by the harshest pool chemicals and resists permanent staining. The 3-M colorquartz accent colors won’t rust, rub off or fade like other colored aggregate because the pigment is ceramically bonded to the quartz aggregate. Finally, state-of-the-art polymer modification of Diamond Brite’s cement increases hardness, improves bonding and reduces water penetration. All this adds up to a beautiful yet durable pool finish.
