6 Pool Remodeling Options

Jacob Fladhammer - Monday, July 02, 2012

Have you taken the time to reevaluate your outdoor space lately? If you haven't, you may begin to realize this very quickly the moment you do take a look. Remodeling any outdoor space, especially one that contains a pool, is a big task, but the whole point of the job is recreating the area so that it's one you can enjoy and live with. Pool remodeling may be precisely the thing you need if you discover that you just aren't using your outdoor space the way you used to back in the days when it was designed.

One of the most popular projects in the realm of pool remodeling is resurfacing the pool itself. Today there are numerous creative options that will give you a pool that's unlike any of the other ones in your neighborhood. To get you started, here are six options you might consider:

  1. Pebble Tec – This surfacing material is made up of tiny pebbles that are bound together with an adhesive material and then formed to create the pool's bottom. This particular option is probably one of the most durable and stain-resistant choices on the market, and it comes in just about any color you can think of.

  2. Pebble Sheen–This brand name takes the durability and beauty of the Pebble Tec finish another step further by adding in a mosaic of pebbles in the bottom of the pool. This mosaic is then buffed very lightly so that you have a pool surface that is textured very finely and looks just like real granite.

  3. Finest Finish – Pool owners who are looking for a material that looks and feels like plaster but isn't, this material fits the bill perfectly. This material is much denser than traditional plaster so that it can stand up to the chemicals that will be added into the pool constantly.

  4. Tile – Traditionalists may prefer to stick with a tile finish, and there is literally no restriction to what you can do when it comes to tiles. Maybe all you want is to freshen up the color with one that's more up to day. Replacing tile is something that can be done easily with a little bit of time and effort.

  5. Plaster – Some homeowners feel that plaster is the way to go. In fact, it was once a common material used for the surface of pools, although today there are better materials available. For example, Finest Finish is one material that mimics plaster very closely except that it is far more durable than regular plaster. So you should consider carefully all of the available options before you decide that plaster is the one for you.

Other pool remodeling ideas include resurfacing the deck or adding new water features, both of which are great ideas if you just need a change in the overall appearance of your outdoor space. Don't be afraid to get creative with your design ideas because there are few rules in the area of pool remodeling.

When you do finally sit down to start planning your pool remodel, it's time to really look at the type of lifestyle you enjoy living outdoors and use that as a basis to create the space you want. It needs to be functional as well as look great so that you can begin enjoying your yard once again.

Emerald Pool and Spa expert will help you with all of your pool remodeling efforts. They know what it takes to make a pool that is structurally sound, beautiful, and designed to last as long as you want it to.

4 Steps for Pool Construction You Should Know

Jacob Fladhammer - Sunday, July 01, 2012

Building a new pool is an exciting adventure, but it is important to do your research thoroughly before embarking on pool construction with any company. There are several things you, as a homeowner, should understand before you agree to let someone build a new pool on your property. It's always best to find a company that will let you work closely with just one person so that they are always aware of where the project is and what's going on with it. Follow these four steps for successful pool construction:

  1. Meet with a consultant and present your ideas. You should never work with someone who won't listen to what you want or need in a pool. They should also measure your yard carefully and go over the available options, providing you with some advice that will fit your needs and also work well with your yard.

  2. Go over the plan and proposal with the company you are considering doing business with. After that initial meeting, the pool construction company will usually come back with a plan and a proposal for the design and build of your pool. They'll discuss their recommendations more fully and get some feedback from you about any adjustments you would like them to make with their proposal. Only once you are completely satisfied with the plan should you move to the next step.

  3. Review and sign a construction contract. The construction contract outlines what the builder will do, when he will do it, how long it will take, and other details. This is a document you should examine carefully and go over with your contractor. This is also the time to make sure that what you are signing will actually fit the budget you have to work with.

  4. Monitor the progress of the project and stay in contact with the builder. Once that contract is signed, the builder will be ready to start work on your new pool! It is always best to keep in touch with the main consultant who is in charge of the work so that you know how it's going, whether they are ahead or behind schedule, and if they have run across any difficulties accomplishing the proposal you agreed to.

When you're looking for a pool construction company, there are several things you should take into consideration. While the price may be the first thing you notice, it should not be the deciding factor when it comes to choosing a company to work with. You also want someone with a track record of delivering quality workmanship on time. This pool is a major investment, so you want it to be something you will enjoy for a very long time after it is built.

You also should check out some reviews of pool manufacturers, specifically the ones offered by the pool company you select. One of the best brands out there is Ultimate, which turns out very luxurious pools that are made using advanced techniques and only the best materials you can buy. A warranty is also very important because if there is a structural problem with the pool, chances are it will be the pool manufacturer that will be held liable, so you want a company that both offers a warranty and stands by it in the event that something does happen.

Anyone can have the paradise they have been dreaming of in their backyard, but it does take time and research to ensure that you make smart choices. Let the experts at Emerald Pool and Spa help you design and build your new pool construction.
