Not only does taking the time to renovate and remodel your pool keep your pool looking up to date and help it blend into your landscaping, but it also can increase the value of your property.  Whether you’re looking to remodel to add some personal touches to your pool or you’re hoping to increase your property value, here are 3 of the most popular remodeling ideas:

1. Resurfacing The Pool

Not only does the ordinary plaster that’s used for pools look boring or even unattractive, it doesn’t have as long of a lifespan as may other types of surfaces.  However, when that very same plaster is mixed with a number of attractive aggregates such as quartz or pebbles, you’ll be able to extend the life of your pool and be treated to seemingly endless color and texture combinations.

2. Check Your Deck

You don’t have to settle for boring old grey concrete when it comes to a pool deck.  You can choose other materials such as:

  • Stone
  • Slate
  • Wood
  • Granite
  • System pavers

These materials are not only more slip resistant, but they can also be matched up with the exterior of your home so the decking truly compliments or ties together your outdoor landscaping with your house.

3. Go Salty

Finally, a top renovation for pools this fall is installing a salt water chlorinator.  Salt water pools are becoming increasingly popular as pool owners no longer need to deal with harsh chemicals like chlorine, and many believe that swimming in salt water is more safe health-wise than swimming in chlorinated water. Salt water pools are easier to clean, and they’re also more cost effective than standard chlorine (for most salt water pools, you only need one teaspoon of regular table salt per gallon to clean the entire pool!).
