Are you in Need of a Pool Renovation?

No matter how carefully you maintain your pool, you will eventually need to have it renovated when problems begin to appear. You may also want a pool renovation to make it match your sense of style and aesthetics or to be more energy-efficient and cost-effective.

Damage

Over time, minuscule cracks, leaks or peeling can occur. If left unattended, they only worsen and can cause considerable damage to the ground and surrounding areas. Another good time to consider a renovation is when your pool begins to need frequent repairs. Either situation is a perfect opportunity to decide if it’s time to perform a complete overhaul and renovation.

Appearance

Pools that were installed or updated more than 10 years ago lack modern style. There’s a wealth of modern materials, colors and options available for updating the appearance. If you purchased your home with the pool already installed, you didn’t have any input about its design. A renovation will let you choose the color, modify the shape, or add a hot tub or spa. You can also incorporate a variety of features ranging from fountains and lights to a wireless sound system.

Energy Efficiency

The pools of the past were sadly lacking in energy efficiency and can contribute considerably to your costs each month. Pools older than 10 years are in serious need of an upgrade. It can require a significant amount of money upfront, but the renovations will pay for themselves over time. The pool will be more cost-effective to operate and function more efficiently.

Safety Features

When many older pools were installed, the safety regulations and requirements weren’t as stringent as they are now. A renovation will allow you to add lighting, install safety fencing, or extend the shallow end to make it more accommodating for youngsters. If you have pets, it’s an opportunity to create steps that can prevent a pet from drowning.

Pool Renovation: Surfaces to Consider

Today’s swimming pool owners have a wealth of options available for a pool renovation. The appearance of the backyard pool is important from an aesthetic perspective, but it also affects cost, renovation time, and longevity. Individuals can select from dozens of colors, no matter what material they decide upon for their renovation.

Fiberglass

A smooth finish and resistance to ground shifting has made fiberglass a popular option for pools. It’s longer lasting than plaster or concrete, and resists staining from chemicals and algae. It can be applied over other finishes.

Diamond Brite™

Easy to maintain, it cures quickly and can be acid washed periodically to maintain its brilliance. It’s comfortable on swimmers’ feet, resists staining and fading, and is one of the most durable on the market. The finish is created with natural quartz and is resistant to damage from chemicals, the elements, and sunscreen. It’s also easy to clean and maintain.

Pebble

This is a good choice for those that want to create a natural look and is particularly inviting when surrounded by plants and other greenery. A pebble finish is resistant to chemicals and stains, doesn’t require grout, and is quite durable.

Plaster

For those that simply want to update the finish on their pool, plaster is the most economical but it also requires more maintenance and will require periodic re-plastering or painting. Exposure to pool chemicals, the elements, and even sunscreen can cause discoloration and lead to deterioration. A highly decorative glass bead aggregate is also available that gives water a shimmery appearance.

Quartz

Long lasting and durable, quartz feels smooth to the touch for swimmers and makes cleaning the pool easier. Quartz also enhances the play of illumination on the water, whether it’s mood lighting or sunlight.

Tile

While tile can take a considerable amount of time to install and is one of the more expensive materials, it has the benefit of lasting for many years. Individuals can choose from tiles of porcelain, ceramic, stone and even glass. They can be arranged in multiple designs and patterns for an artistic look. Glass is the most expensive, stone gives a textured feel, and ceramic and porcelain can be hand-painted.
