Summer is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking of your pool plan for the season. While non-summer seasons are the best time to build or remodel pools, you may find yourself wanting a change after a long winter.
A pool remodel can be born out of necessity, like if the current inground pool is unsafe, defective or needs repair. If the pool needs major repair and will be taken apart anyways, it might be a good idea to renovate while you’re at it.
Whether you need to remodel, bought a new home and don’t like the pool, or are just thinking you want to do something different with your current, there are several factors to consider before deciding to take on the project of an inground pool remodel. Depending on your summer plans, how much you want to spend, and what materials you are wanting, it may be best to wait until the off season to get started. If you’re considering completely rebuilding your pool over remodeling, this article will provide considerations for that as well.
Many backyard inground pools have a patio to complete the poolscape vibe. Patios are not only an opportunity to make the area look more put together, they are also functional. Because water is bound to get splashed around, pool patios are generally built or paved with non-slippery materials to avoid accidents. If you’re doing a pool deck remodel using pavers, keep in mind paver maintenance will be required, and the frequency will depend on the material. If you have or want a pool patio, timing your pool and patio renovations together may be the best way to ensure nothing is out of commission when you need it.
Whatever you choose to do, it’s always important to keep in mind that owning inground pools is more than just worry-free fun. Pools, as well as the materials surrounding them, require constant maintenance to ensure everything is safe and working properly. Not keeping up with proper maintenance will cost you in the long run, so make sure you’re ready for the work.
