Ceramic pool tile is a popular choice among homeowners for its looks and toughness. You can achieve a range of looks with ceramic tile and it’s one of the easier finishes to take care of. So how long do ceramic pool tiles actually last?
Nothing Is Tougher Than Tile
When it comes to finishing the inside of your pool, ceramic tile is your best bet for durability. Part of this is because it’s such a tough material in general, and part of it is because of how easy it is to maintain ceramic tile.
Ceramic pool tiles provide a nice even surface that’s easy to clean, so you don’t have to work as hard to keep them in good shape. Fujiwa Tiles offers a range of ceramic tile options that are designed to last long and look great.
In fact, ceramic pool tile is so durable that it will last up to 75 years if you choose a good installer and maintain it properly.
How It Stacks Up
Now that you know how long ceramic pool tile can last, you’re probably wondering how that compares to some of the other pool finishing options.
A plaster pool finish can last between 5 and 10 years as long as you maintain them well. A pebble finish will last a bit longer, clocking in at between 15 and 20 years when cared for properly. Even a quartz finish can’t hold a candle to ceramic pool tile, as it only lasts between 7 and 12 years.
Ceramic pool tile isn’t just the longest lasting pool interior option, it’s the longest lasting by decades.
Other Benefits of Tile
While ceramic pool tile is a popular choice for its durability, there are other reasons homeowners are choosing this smooth surface for their pools.
- Looks: Because of how ceramic pool tile reflects light, it’s a great way to make your pool look bluer and add some shine to your swim.
- Variety: Ceramic pool tiles come in just about every color and design you could imagine, from ordinary to artsy. Ceramic tiles can even be painted for a look that’s completely unique to your pool.
- Maintenance: Ceramic tiles are easier to clean than other pool finishes, so maintenance is a breeze. In turn, your ceramic pool tile will last longer since you’re keeping it clean.
