Dallas Pool Remodel Experts
If you can answer yes to any of the following questions, it’s time to think about a pool remodel.
- Pool plaster too rough?
- Pool plaster failing due to broken debonded areas?
- Pool plaster failing due to the use of a homebrew bond coat?
- Pool cracked and leaking?
- Tile outdated and/or falling off the pool wall?
- Pool coping hollow or shifting away from your decking?
- Looking to add outdoor living space?
- Or are you just looking for a change?
These are all good reasons for a pool remodel. On the other hand, you may simply want to change the color of your swimming pool by replastering. You might take that next step to building your backyard haven, such as adding a spa or creating a custom fireplace. Having an existing swimming pool in your backyard is no reason to limit the possibilities of what you can
achieve through a swimming pool remodel. No matter what drives you to the decision to remodel your swimming pool, one thing remains the same, you want to be sure that the job is completed by a quality contractor; one that will keep you completely apprised of the daily schedule for your job. One that is insured and will be there in the future if you have an issue. G&B offers a 10 year bond warranty on every pool we replaster.
Original pool plaster that is bonded to the substrate can last a long time if the water chemistry is kept balanced. The point it can change from enjoying your pool to putting up with it happens when the water chemistry is not properly managed. When the chemistry is not kept in balance the water can etch and deteriorate the plaster making it rough and easily stained.
Pool plaster should never be acid washed to clean it up. The acid will etch the surface and weaken the plaster making it possible for the stains to come back in full force. It also will make the surface rough.
Pool tile will commonly develop failures due to the order in which it was installed. If it was not installed on the beam and is above the top of the gunite edge it will be subject to pressure transferred from the pool deck when the ground around the pool swells from moisture or shrinks up due to lack of moisture. G&B will always install the tile first to avoid this ever happening on pools we work on.
The coping can lose its bond to the pool beam when the expansion joint between the deck and that coping is not sufficient to protect the coping from ground movement that is under the decking. The movement is transferred to the coping and will cause the coping to become loose and hollow. This can also cause the tile to begin to lose it’s bond to the pool beam.
Your pool might have a glass block spa wall that you have been putting up with or a cantilever deck edge that is cracked and causing issues for the pool. If your pool has been replastered in the past with a homebrew bond coat, it is not water tight as plaster is intended to be. The homebrew bond coat does not keep your plaster bonded to the substrate. This allows water to get between the layers of plaster. Once that happens your plaster and your pool are at risk for damage. G&B knows how to deal with these issues and many others. We have the experience and processes to make your pool remodel investment a good decision.
