5 Steps to Your Dream Pool Remodel

Just like any other part of your home, there’s a good chance you have the desire to update and remodel your pool. Maybe your plaster has started to crack, maybe you want to add some new features to your pool, or maybe you’re inspired by some of the design trends of 2020. Whatever your reasons are, So Cal Pool Plaster can help you make your remodeling dreams a reality with these five steps.

Step 1: Have An Idea

You’ve got a dream, an idea that will help transform your backyard into your own personal oasis. However, like any home renovation project, a pool remodel is an involved and demanding task to begin. Whether you want some new and stylish pool tiling installed or are interested in adding a spa, you need to have an end goal in mind for your project. At the same time, however, don’t try to plan out every single little detail imaginable. Projects like this often change and evolve over time, and you may end up discovering a new pool finish you hadn’t initially considered during the later stages of the pool remodeling project. If you’re undecided, So Cal Pool Plaster has a gallery of previous work we’ve performed on our website that you can browse for inspiration and references. 

Step 2: Get a Consultation and Estimate

The next step is to find out if your dreams are within your budget, and the only way to do this is to get a consultation and estimate from a pool contractor like So Cal Pool Plaster. To fully determine the cost of a pool remodeling project, we will need to come out to visit your pool and inspect it. We’ll be able to tell you what the requirements of your remodeling dream are, what needs to be removed, what can stay, and other steps your project will need to take. We’ll also take the time to sit down and discuss your ideas, inspirations, and hopes for your pool remodel, as well as answer any questions or concerns you might have about our services.

Step 3: Start Designing

In this stage, your contractor will start working on simulations of what your remodeled pool will look like. This can include sketches, mock-up photos, and 3D renderings, and it should help you settle on the pool finish or feature you truly want. It’s important that you finalize a design in this stage, rather than trying to change it halfway through construction, as that can easily lead to you going over budget later on. 

Step 4: Construction

Once you’ve finalized your design, your contractor can begin working on the remodel! This will include demolishing and removing unwanted elements from your pool and installing the new elements that you desire. Replastering, adding new pool finishes, and more all take place during this stage. At So Cal Pool Plaster, we always make sure that our customers are fully informed of everything we do so that there are never any unpleasant surprises. If something unexpected does come up during our work, we will always explain what it is and how we can handle it. 

Step 5: Enjoy, and Stay In Touch

Once your contractor has finished their work, you should have a beautifully remodeled pool for you and your family to enjoy! We’re so sure of our work that we offer generous warranties on the pool finishes and plasters we use, and if any unexpected issues do arise, you can always call us; we’ll come out and make things right. As long as you keep your pool healthy and clean, however, you should have a personal paradise in your very own backyard.
