As we get closer to the pool season, you might be wondering about your old pool. You moved in to this house several years ago and at the time, the pool was one of the reasons you decided to buy it. Now, though you love your pool and all of the benefits it brings, you feel like something is missing.
You certainly don’t want to tear it out and build a new one, so how about doing a little pool renovation? If you are thinking about doing something new with your pool, consider the top 5 reasons why you might need to renovate.
1) You want what you want. Your pool was built and designed by the former owners of your home. You’ve often thought about what you would have done if you were the one who built it. The good news is, you can have what you want by working with a pool company that specializes in pool renovation and design.
2) A better fit. Your backyard might have changed over the years, from the landscape to the gardens. Your pool might stick out like a sore thumb it looks like something from the YMCA while you have constructed and created a park-like, natural setting around it.
3) A place to play. Yes, you might take it personally when friends and family don’t flock to your pool to hang out when you send an invite. But a pool that is old and shabby might actually look dirty, even when it’s not. Maybe your coping is chipped and cracked, or maybe you need a better entryway. A new deck would be a great addition to encourage fun.
4) Safety features. The rules and regulations might have changed since your pool was built and you might need an upgrade to keep it in line with the local codes. Or maybe the neighborhood has changed and you want to keep your pool safe. From fencing to alarms, to lighting, be sure your pool is safe.
5) Save money. Your pool might be way out of date when it comes to energy saving features. From the pump to the filtration system to the heater, there are many ways to update your pool that can actually save you money on your energy bills. Plus, if you have an opportunity to “go green,” the pool is one place to start.
Make your pool a place where everybody wants to be, including you. You’ll love even more than the day you moved in.
