Delaying Pool Renovations is a Bad Idea

Pool Renovations

Do the right thing and plan maintenance and pool renovations sooner rather than later.

While no one wants to disrupt those refreshing dips in the pool after a long summer’s day, delaying pool renovations is never a good idea. In fact, it is a downright bad idea. One part face lift, one part modernization, and one part repair, a pool renovation can bring new life to your pool.

  1. Facelift/Modernization: Let’s be honest, what was in style even 5-10 years ago is out of style today. So your once stylish pool is not, well, just not so stylish anymore. Pool renovations are a great way to give your pool a facelift and help improve the curb appeal of your home. This is especially beneficial when you decide to sell your home.
  2. Repairs: It is important to fix all of those seemingly small issues that have pooped up over the years: that small tear in your pool liner, those cracks in your pool deck, etc. By ignoring such repairs, you run the risk of these issues becoming big problems in the future. As the old saying goes, a stitch in time saves nine. By addressing maintenance issues now, you could be saving yourself a lot of money in the future.

So do the right thing and plan maintenance and pool renovations sooner rather than later.

Planning Pool Renovations

Every twenty years or so, most inground pools are in need of renovations – some minor, some more significant. The trick is to properly prepare for such renovations so you are not caught off-guard.

  1. Do Your Research: Know what you want. Scour photos and figure out exactly how you want your “new” pool – your dream pool – to look. Just remember, whatever you choose you will eventually have to pay for. So be realistic and keep No. 2 in mind…
  2. Budget: Save up some money, knowing that pool repairs and renovations are certainly going to come up at some point. If you have a little money set aside, those eventual cracks in your pool deck won’t seem so bad. This will also prompt you to address issues sooner, rather than trying to save a few bucks now and delaying maintenance, which will only cost you more down the road. It is also important to save up for more significant renovations, such as adding water features, pool lighting, etc.
  3. Choose a Contractor: Contact 2-3 contractors. Collect a few estimates (bids) and do a little digging. Check the Better Business Bureau (BBB), ask for references, and find everything you can about your top 2-3 choices.
