We offer a complete list of Swimming Pool Renovation Services. Whether you need a full renovation or a few minor repairs, we can help with your renovation needs.
Problem: Algae stained pools.
Process: Pool is drained and rinsed with a chlorine solution.
Results: Will remove algae and may lighten but not necessarily remove all stains.
Problem: Dingy or stained plaster surface.
Process: The pool is drained and rinsed with an acid solution. Because an acid wash actually removes a portion of the plaster surface, it is not recommended for all pools, or as a scheduled maintenance item.
Results: Will brighten the pool surface but may not remove all staining. For heavily calcified pools, additional hand sanding will be required and is normally an extra charge. This process is not recommended for pools that have a worn surface.
Problem: Loose or missing tiles.
Process: Depending on the scope of repair, the pool may need to be drained. Loose tiles are removed, and the pool wall inspected for hidden damage. New or replacement tiles are applied to the pool. Due to the amount of work required to clean up tiles that have fallen off, they usually cannot be reused and should be replaced with new tiles.
Results: Will vary depending on the scope of work. With basic tile repairs, conditions beyond our control do not allow for a guarantee for grout/tile color match in the repaired areas.
Problem: Loose or damaged coping stone or brick.
Process: Depending on the scope of repair, the pool may need to be drained. Loose/damaged coping is removed, and the pool beam inspected for hidden damage. Coping is then reset or replaced, as required.
Results: Will vary depending on the scope of work. With basic coping repairs, conditions beyond our control do not allow for a guarantee for coping/grout color match in the repaired areas.
Problem: Sections of rebar have started to deteriorate and rust is leaching through to the pool surface.
Process: Rusted area is chipped out to expose the suspect rebar. The rebar is removed and the remaining ends are sealed with epoxy. Plaster is then patched.
Results: Typically prevents rust from reappearing in the affected area. In cases where the entire pool is not being replastered, the repaired area will be patched. Every attempt will be made to match the existing plaster; however, due to the many factors that created the “current” condition/look of the plaster, there is no guarantee that the plaster patch will match the existing plaster.
Problem: Pool surface is worn, dingy, cracked, chipped, or otherwise damaged.
Process: Pool is drained. Old plaster is saw cut and chipped out around tile line, skimmers, return lines, and lights. A “bond coat” is applied to the old plaster surface and allowed to set. The new surface coating is applied over the bond coat and the pool filled immediately. Once the pool is full, a specialized chemical and brushing program will start for approximately 2 weeks.
Results: Excellent. Stop by our office to see some of the many color and materials selections available to enhance the look of your pool. If you are on a budget and are also planning new tile or coping, we highly recommend completing those upgrades prior to resurfacing the pool. Otherwise, some incidental damage may occur to the new surface.
Problem: Dried / cracked mastic
Process: Remove all mastic. Install foam filler. Pour new mastic and cover with silicone sand.
Results: Excellent. This process will seal the gap between your coping and deck, which will help protect the coping and tile from water damage.
Process: Remove, replace, add, or resurface your existing deck. Stop by our office to see some of the many options available.
