Will You Need Help With Your Renovation Project?

Sourcing labor is one of the most challenging tasks for any project. At times, the work may seem simple enough for a homeowner to undertake themselves, but professional assistance can ensure the proper steps are taken and is often required for challenging jobs. Pool contractors, such as designers, electricians, and builders, are trained to take your renovation from start to finish efficiently, allowing you to get back to swimming sooner!

Pick The Most Suitable Season For Your Project

Choosing the most suitable time to start a renovation can largely determine how much you’ll be swimming this upcoming season. Many pool owners aim to complete their project before the summer, allowing them more time to enjoy their new pool. Work starting in Winter may pose risks to larger remodels, which depend heavily on good weather conditions. Spring is the ideal time to start pool renovations, with ample time to complete work once the unsettled weather has passed. However, Gold Medal Pools is capable of working around your schedule and can renovate your pool whenever it is convenient for you.

Review The Reasons For Your Pool Renovation

There are many reasons to consider a pool renovation, such as safety and functionality concerns or aesthetic improvements and upgrades. Most customers will perform some renovation or remodel work over the lifetime of their pool, focusing on structure, designs, and systems that begin to wear down with age. Here are some of the most common reasons our customers decide to invest in pool renovation:

Pool Resurfacing

Pool resurfacing upgrades the topmost layer of your pool to provide aesthetic improvements and additional protection from the elements. 

Safety Features

Upgrading or adding additional safety features to your pool can help to keep it a welcoming environment for the whole family. Common renovation tasks include adding or replacing ladders, railings, pool covers or adding or replacing pool fencing. 

Aesthetic Upgrades

Adding a touch of style or luxury to your pool before the next swim season can be a perfect way to upgrade your pool. Nothing beats a new deck for bathing in the sun or soaking beneath a cascading fountain on a hot summer’s day. Aesthetic upgrades can be both for appearance and functionality.

Maintenance, Repairs, And Upgrades

Sometimes renovation is necessary to keep your pool working correctly. A tired pump or cracking tiles may only hold out for so long during the summer, so replacing old, worn-out materials and equipment can be wise before they quit mid-season. These types of upgrades can also help increase the lifespan of your pool and improve energy efficiency and overall functionality.
