Experts In Renovating Concrete Pools

What is pool renovation?

Is it the same as pool resurfacing or pool restoration?

Pool renovation, restoration, and pool resurfacing are three terms for, effectively, the same thing. A pool restoration is considered a cost-effective and convenient way to bring an old swimming pool back up to scratch. We can turn an old, disused, or unattractive pool into a contemporary, eye-catching feature that is as much a joy to swim in as it is to look at. Pool renovations can:

  • Improve the look of your swimming pool
  • Reduce overall maintenance as well as the need for regular chemical rebalancing
  • Improve comfort in the pool by ensuring a smoother surface

Pool resurfacing is relatively fast, and it’s a much more economical option than having an older pool replaced completely.

Issues that pool renovation can fix

Pool renovations can fix a huge number of issues that can arise in older pools relating to both the look and function of your swimming pool. Pool renovations can be used to fix:

  • Stained swimming pools. If your pool is visibly stained discoloured, this can look unattractive and unclean. Pool resurfacing will completely rid your pool of any discoloured marks or stains, making it look clean and fresh once again.
  • Damaged pools. If material is peeling off the sides of your pool, this could be caused by imbalanced pH levels or simply years of wear and year. Pool renovation can quickly and effectively repair this damage, both improving your pool’s aesthetics as well as lengthening its lifespan.
  • Cracks or leaks in your pool. If you wait to fix a cracked pool, the damage will only get worse, potentially incurring significantly higher costs to fix later on. Resurfacing your pool is an effective way to seal off cracks and small leaks before the damage accelerates.
  • Outdated or older pools. If your pool is functioning fine but it’s looking a bit outdated, pool resurfacing is a cost-effective way to improve your pool’s look and design without having to pay for a whole new pool.
