A Pebble Tec finish is purely cement and stone without calcium carbonate. The pure cement is much more resistant to acid than plaster and the stones are impervious to acid.
Pebble Tec uses about 2 ½ times the material than used with plaster (thickness of Pebble Tec is between 3/8” and 1/2”).
The calcium/mineral build up on a Pebble Tec finish at the waterline is more difficult to remove than on tile.
Pebble Tec is susceptible to expansion and contraction.
Pebble Tec is not easy to patch.
Pebble Tec does not recommend custom colors.
The Division 13 Cementitious Finish Specification includes a 3 year warranty on all cementitious finishes, including Pebble Tec.
