pool renovationMaking upgrades around your home is fairly common.  Kitchen renovations and other remodeling projects all provide an enhanced level of style, design, and technology.  But what about renovating areas outside of your home?  If you bought a home with a pool or built one several years ago, you may be interested in giving it a facelift. 

Pools today feature a wide array of style and technology options.  Not only can a renovation completely change the appearance of your backyard, but it can also improve the way that your pool functions as well.  Here are a few things to know and expect when it comes to remodeling your pool.

Pool Remodeling Begins With a Custom Design

Based on the size and shape of your pool, you’ll have the ability to redesign and update in a variety of ways.  From surface texture and color to water features and more, your pool contractor can create a customized design specifically for you.

 Draining Your Pool

Depending on the size of your pool the draining process can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours.  This will be the first step in the remodeling process as it provides access to the surface of the pool for upgrades and other redesign initiatives.

“Chipping Out” Your Pool

Once the pool is drained, the surface can be chipped and primed.  This allows the gunite shell of the pool to be cleaned and updated.  If you opt to have your pool tiled, it will be done as a part of this step as well.

Pool Equipment Upgrades

Depending on the age of your pool, it may be time to consider replacing the equipment as part of the renovation.  Opting for a more efficient pump can save you money in the long run while also improving the quality and safety of the water. 

The most important part of remodeling your pool is selecting the right contractor that can bring your vision to life.  Renovations can be subtle or extensive depending on what you want.  Everything from shape to depth to materials and more can all be addressed.  Lucas Firmin Pools designs, builds, services, and remodels custom pools in the Baton Rouge area.
