You don’t have to completely replace your pool to breathe life back into an older pool. There are a few key swimming pool renovations you can complete to make your pool look and feel brand new again.
Bring Your Aging Pool Back to Life With These Swimming Pool Renovations
Custom features are a great way to add personality and style to your backyard pool. You can create ambiance, add functionality, or enhance your overall swimming experience. Get started with the following 5 pool renovations.
Tile not only looks amazing, but also comes with some other, more subtle benefits. It hides many of the issues inherent with gunite pools. It will effectively disguise the “bathtub ring” line of scum on the pool’s surface due to fluctuating water levels. New tile givers your entire backyard a new, fresh look.
Replace the decking around your pool for a dramatic effect not only around your pool, but for your entire backyard. Renovating your deck also makes way to replacing your pool coping, another renovation to consider. If you’re not wanting to completely replace your deck, consider adding a pool deck coating to your existing deck for a temporary, but beautiful finish.
Coping prevents water from getting behind the pool shell and covers the steel support beams. If you’re going to replace your tiling, it’s best to replace the coping at the same time since removal of existing coping can cause tiles to fall. Vinyl swimming pools can now use stone or brick coping. You can choose from a variety of materials such as precast concrete, natural stone, or tile. Fresh coping alongside new tile makes a huge transformative difference to the look and feel of your pool.
Moving water, whether fast or slow, always provides a calming effect. People love to look and listen to water features. The sound and sight of a waterfall or fountain adds uniqueness and ambiance to your backyard pool experience. Kids love to play in small pool fountains known as bubblers. Build these water features into many different areas in your design such as small retaining walls, a pile of boulders, or other places. These features can be customized to fit almost any style or preference.
Your plaster will begin to show signs of wear such as mineral stains or patches of gunite showing through with time. This is a perfect time to replaster your pool. New plaster will make swimming more comfortable and free from abrasive surfaces that might scratch you or snag swimwear. Plaster is essential to your pool foundation and appearance. Don’t wait to replace, but take action as soon as you notice a problem.
