What You Should Know About Pool Refurbishment

Irene Montgomery

If your pool looks a little worse for the wear, you may consider tearing it out and replacing it. However, what you may not know, is that there is an alternative to pool replacement. Swimming pool refurbishment is an excellent option if you want to bring your pool back to life. In addition, refurbishment works well for damaged pools that need some care. Here are three things to know if you think that pool refurbishment is the right option. 

The Best Timing

The first thing to know is whether pool refurbishment is the best option for your swimming pool. In some instances where your pool has a significant amount of damage, a complete replacement may be necessary. However, if your pool is outdated, has cracks or is peeling, requires new safety features, or isn't energy-efficient, swimming pool refurbishment may be an excellent choice. In addition, upgrading your current pool is less expensive than replacing it, making it a better option for your pocketbook as well. 

How Much It Costs

There are many ways in which you will see savings when you opt for a pool refurbishment over a total replacement. When you remodel or refurbish your pool, the existing structure stays in place, which saves you a lot of money. Working with the pool you already have can save thousands of dollars. How much pool refurbishment costs depends on the condition of your pool and the changes you want to make. On average, swimming pool refurbishment will set you back anywhere from $4,962 to $12,943. While refurbishment isn't cheap, it costs a lot less than installing a brand new pool. 

How Long It Takes

If you are looking into pool refurbishment, you will want to consider how long the process takes. The timeline for swimming pool refurbishment can range from a few days to weeks, depending on what will be done to your pool. Before committing to a refurbishment, make sure you discuss the timeline and your expectations with your pool contractor. If you use your pool often, you may also want to schedule the construction during the off-season. 

If your pool needs some work, pool refurbishment may be just the thing for your pool. However, there are a few things to know. First, refurbishment is an excellent option for many swimming pools, but you need to consider whether it's the right fit for your pool before jumping in. Second, swimming pool refurbishment will cost thousands of dollars, but it is less expensive than replacement. Finally, you will also want to discuss the refurbishment timeline with your contractor before work starts.

Adding Value to My Home

My husband and I are considering selling our small brick home in the near future. While we’ve completed some work on this house recently, we know we will need to do a few more things before we put it on the market. For instance, we need to replace some of the flooring, paint some of the walls, and replace some of the siding on the front porch. In addition, we may want to add a pool to the backyard. Because we live in the hot southern United States, many of our neighbors have pools. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of pools to install in a home you may sell in the near future. Enjoy!
