Thinking that your pool may be ready for a do-over?  Here are some of the top reasons why homeowners decide to start the process of swimming pool remodeling:

When Safety Becomes an Issue

Cracked concrete, damaged fiberglass and chipped tile are all common safety issues that can potentially lead to a disastrous situation.  Not only can someone become physically injured by cracks in the pavement or broken steps and ladders, but such cracks or breaks in the foundation of your pool and the surrounding area can become a health issue (algae and other nasty bacteria can be harboured in such areas).

Benefit:  Not only will you be keeping you, your family and visitors safe, but you’ll also be protecting yourself from any potential lawsuits that could arise should someone become injured on your property!

When the Pool’s Just Ugly

Let’s face it, there are some really unattractive pools out there. Your backyard may be absolutely stunning, but that boring rectangular pool with damaged turquoise tile from 1989 is actually taking away from the appeal of your lovely patio, not adding to it.  Fortunately, the appearance of your pool can be easily updated and in ways that can fit any budget.

Benefit:  Adding a beautiful pool to your backyard not only increases your own enjoyment, but it can increase the value of your home as well.  If you’re planning on selling your home any time soon, having a fantastic looking backyard oasis can help to quickly move your property off the market.

When Energy Efficiency is Poor

Old pools lack a number of technological advancements and features that newer pools have.  Pumps, heaters, filtration systems, cleaning systems… all of these are far more efficient today than those from even as little as 10 years ago.

Benefit:  While you may not need to completely remodel your pool to take advantage of these features, it’s a good idea to begin trading in your own pumps and filters for more energy efficient ones to save both the environment and your money.
