The Experts in Pool Restorations

What Is A Pool Restoration?

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 restorations 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 A Pool Restoration Can Fix

Pool restorations 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 restorations can be used to fix:

  • Stained swimming pools. If your pool is visibly stained or 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 tear. A pool restoration 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  • Outdated or older pools. If your pool is functioning fine but it’s looking a bit outdated, pool resurfacing is a cost-effective way to improve your pool’s look and design without having to pay for a whole new pool.

Pool Resurfacing

Could pool resurfacing give your pool the new lease of life it needs? Over time, older pools can start to look a little ragged around the edges – issues such as staining and discolouration can start to affect the look of your pool. Resurfacing is a cost-effective solution to this problem, giving your pool a makeover for a fraction of the price that a new one would cost.

Vinyl Pool Restorations

The part of a vinyl pool that’s most likely to wear out is the liner. On average, a vinyl liner will last around ten to fifteen years. If you’ve got a small worn area, we can patch it for you. For liners that have multiple leaks or weaknesses, we recommend a complete replacement. As well as replacing on a like-for-like basis, we also offer alternatives to vinyl liners. For example, concrete or tiles are longer-lasting options that are less prone to damage. Depending on the construction of your pool, we can also resurface with Gunite.

Concrete Pool Restorations

If correctly installed, concrete pools will last for 50 years or more. They usually need to be relined every 10 to 15 years, however, to keep them looking their best. When we come out to assess your concrete pool, we’ll discuss the various restoration options with you – some people may prefer to simply have any cracks repaired, whilst others will want a complete resurface. Our concrete resurfacing options include vinyl, stone, tiles, pebbles or Gunite.

A Custom Solution That’s Right For Your Requirements

We recognise that there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to pool resurfacing. Factors that may influence your decision on the right resurfacing option include:

  • The age of your pool (if it’s very old, you may wish to consider total replacement, for example).
  • Whether you’re happy with the overall spec of your pool (some people may feel that resurfacing should be combined with some alterations in pool shape, size or features as part of a makeover).
  • Future plans (if you’re planning to move in a few years, for example, you may want a more cost-effective, short-term resurfacing option).
  • Usage (infrequent users may prefer a budget resurface).
  • Budget – we recognise that all our customers have different budgets and can tailor our work accordingly.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How much does it cost to resurface a pool on the Gold Coast?

The average cost of resurfacing a pool is around $9,000 AUD, but it’s worth noting that this cost can vary massively between projects, with some pool resurfacing projects costing under $2,000 AUD and others costing over $20,000 AUD. The cost of any pool renovations will depend on the size and requirements of each project.

 

How do you renovate an old, in-ground concrete pool?

Concrete pools with cracks and leaks can be repaired using an epoxy or polyurethane injection to seal cracks, and applying hydraulic cement to cover affected areas. Concrete pools with large damaged areas can be effectively torn apart and recemented, though this is only necessary when extensive damage to the pool surface and shell is present.

 

What is the cheapest way to resurface a pool?

The cheapest way to resurface a pool is to use a vinyl liner. This can be done at a very low cost, though isn’t always the most durable renovation solution.
