As you consider having your new in-ground swimming pool installed, maybe the last thing you want to think about is necessary renovations that will need to take place decades from now. On the other hand, perhaps you’re the type that likes to plan ahead. If the latter describes you, then this post is definitely a must-read. One of the many benefits of your in-ground swimming pool will certainly be its longevity. In addition to regular weekly, occasional, and annual maintenance, you’ll have an occasional need to upgrade your pool. While such a significant added investment might be daunting to consider right now, an informed decision is always a good thing.
Any kind of pool renovation is an added investment in your back yard and — by extension — your home’s value. Somewhere between 15 and 20 years after its installation, your pool will require at least a facelift to prevent inevitable deterioration, as a result of regular wear-and-tear caused by both use and the elements.
Vinyl linings continue to reinvent themselves as technology constantly progresses. In addition to newer, more resilient liners, decades from now that liner that once looked fresh and clean will be starting to show its age. The good news is that having a new liner installed takes just a day or so. When the liner is off, the walls should be inspected for damage. In case of rust or other issues, using wall foam may be a good option before having the new liner installed.
Your pool renovation can mean having your pool take on an entirely new shape! Definitely more invasive than a new liner, this kind of upgrade can significantly impact the entire ambiance of your yard. From extending your pool to adding curves or even creating an attached roto-molded spa to flow into your pool, the possibilities can be as large as your yard! An attached spa may be more affordable than you think, if you already have an in-ground swimming pool. Far less expensive than a portable unit, this new addition to your pool may be the most significant one you can make.
Perhaps when you first had your pool installed, you couldn’t justify the expense of your dream deck. But a decade or two later, your pool will be paid off, and you may well be ready for an intricate paver design, stamped concrete, or outdoor floor tiles. For an even more high-end look, consider flagstone or natural stone for your new poolside deck. Along with a new deck, redone pool coping can add value, too. Today’s vinyl pools can use brick or stone coping, just like concrete pools do. An older concrete deck can be easily updated with wood deck tiles.
