After Plaster – What’s Next?

Picking up on our New Construction job in Ennis, TX – we recently posted our article showcasing our Plaster Installation. We all know that plaster is the pretty & colorful material that creates our pool surface. So what happens after we plaster a swimming pool? Can we just fill up and start swimming right away?

The short answer is soon, very very soon. After we complete our plaster installation – we fill the swimming pool with water immediately. Plaster is a delicate material that requires hydration to stay in tact. Heat and sunshine can cause it to dry out and crack. *(That’s why you always find pool tile at the water line – plaster has to remain underwater).

Alas, upon filling up our newly plastered swimming pool – we begin the process of chemical startup. During this phase, we balance our pool chemistry using the Langelier Saturation Index. This index identifies the level of calcium balance in our swimming pool water. We balance our calcium upon fill up so that our water (which has calcium) and plaster (which also has calcium) are in balance.

In many cases, if these two entities are out of balance, water & plaster can exchange (steal or deposit) calcium causing issues like etching or scaling. For more information, we invite you to visit our article on the LSI Index – and give us a call if you’d like to learn more!

We Can Create Your Next Outdoor Kitchen

Alas, as we fill up and chemically balance our swimming pool – we’re free to complete our final phases of new construction. In the case of our Ennis job – our client desired to create an outdoor kitchen.

With the benefit of a large backyard, we had plenty of space to work with. Using this large amount of room to our advantage – we created a huge outdoor pergola with a covered outdoor kitchen and adjacent sitting area.

We like creating things with high quality materials. As you can see from the images, we built this outdoor kitchen using rich cedar that is both soft, wide and very beautiful. Our huge cedar beams create a woodsy feel and blends in natural to its surrounding environment. After it’s completion – our client now has a gorgeous space to escape the heat, enjoy a meal or sit by a fire on a cool evening. They are now ready for hours of outdoor entertainment in both summer and winter months – rain or shine!
