Is your pool serving you well? If so, that’s great news, and we’re thrilled that you’re enjoying it!
But if you’re finding that your pool just isn’t meeting your family’s needs anymore, you might be considering a pool renovation. We are here to help you through your renovation to make sure that your pool is exactly what you want and need.

Before we begin your pool renovation, we’ll want some specific information from you so that we can help make your dream a reality.

What kind of shape is your pool in?

Pool Renovation

Is your pool worth renovating? Or does it need a complete overhaul? Unfortunately, in some cases, time has taken its toll on a pool and renovation simply doesn’t make sense. There’s no point pouring money into a pool that is too old or too damaged.

As we plan your renovation, we also need to know what kind of mechanical upgrades or safety features need to be added. While we recognize that discussing considerations like the pool liner, pump, or pool covers is not nearly as much fun as imagining slides, diving boards, lighting, or fountains, it’s still absolutely necessary for you to get the most enjoyment out of your pool.

If you aren’t sure about the condition of your pool, that’s no problem! That’s what we’re here for. We’re happy to come out and give you a consultation to help you determine the condition of your pool and see if it makes more sense to renovate your current pool or build a new one.

What kind of budget are you working with?

It would be nice to have an endless supply of money to build your ultimate dream pool, but for most of us, that just isn’t a reality. That’s okay, though. You don’t need to have unlimited funds to create a nice pool that looks great and will give you and your family years of enjoyment.

Sit down and work out a budget for your pool renovation. How much, realistically, are you looking to spend? Letting your pool specialist know the exact figure you have in mind will help us suggest upgrades and changes that are realistic.

What is your vision?

Close your eyes for a moment. Imagine you and your family enjoying the pool. What do you see? Perhaps you are lounging in a backyard oasis. Perhaps you’re hosting the next family reunion. Or perhaps you want a pool you can use for exercise, swimming laps all through the summer. Would you like your pool to be the centerpiece of your backyard entertainment area? Is there an overall theme your pool should be contributing to?

All this information is vital as we consider your remodel. We may need to change the depth of your pool or look at changes to the entry. Maybe your pool needs a bigger band of concrete so that it blends better with your patio, allowing you to entertain with greater ease. We can even look at fun water features, like fountains or pool lighting, to contribute to the overall ambiance.

What’s your ultimate goal?

Some people want a pool renovation to make their pool more energy efficient. Others want to limit their maintenance so they can spend less time cleaning and more time enjoying their pool. If you have kids or pets, safety is probably a top concern.

Take some time to identify what you absolutely need vs. what you’d like. Let us know your specific concerns so that we can address these while we are planning your renovation. It can be helpful to sit down and create a list of all the things you’d like to improve or change and then rank them according to priority. We can then discuss these ideas with you, talk about how much they cost, and plan the best way to get what you need in with your budget.

When should your renovation take place?

Once we know what kind of renovations you are looking for, we can give you an idea of the time frame for your project. This will help you plan your renovation accordingly. You don’t want to be renovating your pool during the time when you will be enjoying it the most, but you also don’t want to be caught by cold weather and have the work come to a sudden halt.

The end of summer is a good time to think back on how your family used the pool this summer and what you want to change.
