Essential Tips When Remodeling Your Pool

A swimming pool in the backyard it definitively set the scene for hours of quality family time, as well as playtime with friends. However, when pools look and feel a bit rough, it’s perhaps time to pool remodeling.

A pool remodeling project involves a huge responsibility, lot of budgeting and decisions. It also includes the use of a number of tools we’re likely not very familiar with.

Leaving the pool remodeling tasks in the expert hands of a pool construction company that provides a pool remodeling service you can trust, ensure a job well done. However it’s important for pool owners to know what to expect when hiring a pool remodeling service.

A regular day in the pool remodeling process began with the drainage of the pool.

The first step of any pool remodeling proyect is turning off any pool equipment, immediately following drain the pool. After that use the sump pump to get out any remaining water.

Chipping Out

If the owners have requested a ting, then this is the next step. Chipping out is possibly the noisiest of all pool remodeling steps, and this process takes about half a day. Contractors clean up the gunite shell and then clean it.

Tile and Coping Renovation

Over time, pool tiles and coping will wear away, splinter or discolor. If that’s not your case, maybe you just want to transform your pool into the atmosphere you’ve always dreamed of, and well, this is a great start.

Pool coping is the material above the tile line that generally covers the top of the pool structure. The pool coping is used to separate the pool structure from the pool decking.

If you want to renovate or replace your pool’s coping it is best to do it at the same time as the tile since the removal of the coping stones could cause the file to fall off.

If coping is installed correctly, any water that is splashed out of the pool should flow away from the pool and down into deck drains. Coping should be tilted slightly away from the pool.

Pool Decks

The covers around the pools can be made of various materials such as Stamped Concrete, Decorative or Paver Pool Decks, and have added aesthetic elements that will add great decor to your backyard space.


The pool deck pavers are basically rectangular pavers that are used especially for an outdoor swimming pool area’s construction.

Currently there is a variety of natural and manmade materials that are used for decks finishes, textures well adapted to their particular environment so during the pool remodeling, it is important to choose a deck with non-slip surface features, safe to sunbathe, play and hang out.

In Miami the most used pool deck finishes when pool remodeling are Travertine and pavers.  

Pool Deck Pavers used in the landscaping of outdoor swimming pool areas can be beneficial to homeowners and users of the pool area. Stone, brick, and concrete are the three main materials used to make these pool pavers.

These materials are best for pool paving purposes as they can weather the rigid effects of chlorinated or salt water pools.

On the other hand, Travertine is a natural material which comes from the family of limestones. Travertine pavers are environment-friendly, thick pieces of travertine which are mostly used for beautifying the pool decks, patios, driveways, walkways and outside stairs.

Pool Resurfacing

If you see hollow spots, chipping or cracking on the surface of your pool, it is time to resurface your swimming pool.

Resurfacing basically involves chipping out the damaged material, applying a new finish and acid washing the pool’s surface.

Before resurfacing the first step is to get the pool prepped. After drain the pool use the sump pump to get out any remaining water, following this, remove any loose debris like leaves, chisel away any plaster that has gotten loose, and then sand down any edges that are sharp or rough. Finally use the cleaning solution and a sponge to clear away any dirt that remains.

Pebble Finishes

The prefabricated swimming pools made with fiberglass should be resurfaced with fiberglass, which is a polymer that is complemented by a polyester resinwish. If you have a fiberglass pool at home, this is the best alternative to resurfacing it.
