Time for a change
Even the most wonderfully designed swimming pools will be subject to construction and renovation every 10 to 20 years, if for no other reason than to keep up with changing tastes and new technology. Savvy pool owners consider pool renovations to be an investment in their pool and home value. Some renovations are inspired from the pool owner’s desire for something new, while others are trying to prevent deterioration, or simply to keep the pool fun and inviting. Here, will discuss some of the great new ways you can reinvest and reinvent your swimming pool.
Resurfacing the plaster
It may be necessary to resurface your concrete pool, and the most cost-effective choice is plaster. An experienced pool builder can chip or sandblast the old plaster surface down to the original concrete shell. Then they will apply a bonding coat along with one or two coats of new plaster that is tinted to your choice of color. Unlike fiberglass or vinyl, plaster will react with pool water over the course of time, so you will need to be very diligent about maintaining proper water chemistry. Consult your pool contractor about the most advanced plasters or surface mixes. If your pool surface is in decent shape, consider painting instead of resurfacing it. Rubber-based or acrylic paint is available, but neither is as durable as epoxy paint, which can last for 10 to 15 years.
Change your pool shape
Changing the shape of your pool is an adventurous pool renovation idea that can be an opportunity to test your creativity. For example, your pool could be extended on one or both ends in an effort to create a longer swim lane; or you could add curves to one or more sides of a rectangular pool. The possibilities are unlimited, with some being more practical than others.
Add a spa
Adding a spa next to the pool, or even one that spills over into the pool may be easier than you might expect. You will also be surprised to find the cost comparable to a portable spa. Your pool builder can
Build one that will sit above the pool deck by a few inches, making it easier to keep covered. You can add a few planters and some updated poolside furniture for added affect.
Add a water slide
That’s right, we said water slide… If you have a family with youngsters, your pool will become the most popular place in the neighborhood. There are pool slides that are specifically designed backyard pools. Your Charlotte pool builder could have your pool slide up and running in a couple of days. Be aware that some slides need quite a lot of deck space, and need to drop swimmers in design specific water depth, usually around 42 inches.
