Add onto Existing: In most cases it's possible to be
If you find yourself asking “Can I change the depth and shape of my swimming pool?” you'll be happy to hear that the answer is yes. It's possible to change the depth and shape of your swimming pool without starting all over. Many homeowners have backyard pools that they love.
An average pool installation costs $22,191 with most homeowners spending between $14,925 to $29,988 depending on the pool type. The average cost to add an above ground pool is $1,850 to $4,977, while the cost to put in an inground pool ranges from $28,000 to $55,000.
You can install a vinyl liner over a concrete or fiberglass pool. Given enough time, all swimming pools require repair and renovation, including sturdy concrete or fiberglass types. Renovating the basin of a concrete or fiberglass swimming pool can cost a lot.
The most significant disadvantage of a fiberglass pool is the limitation on pool shapes and sizes. If you are looking for a large pool with multiple bodies of water or want a swim-up bar with bar stools built into the structure, then the fiberglass pool may not be the right choice for you.
A water feature comprises 10 to 15 percent of the total cost of pool construction on average, Marshall says. Typical waterfalls run $7,000 to $10,000, though some cost as much as $30,000.
The experts are a split on how much a pool can contribute to a home's value. One HouseLogic study suggests an increase of 7 percent, at most, under ideal conditions, while HGTV reports that the average inground pool can up your property's value by 5 to 8 percent.
In many cases, a pool remodel specialist can cut the water depth by several feet. Depending on a pool's existing dimensions, it may even be possible to create an approximate configuration of a play or sports pool. By doing so, you will have an aquatic retreat that's more economical and far more functional.
ADDING A SPA TO EXISTING INGROUND POOL
We hear a lot of people asking if a spa could be added to their already existing pool. If you have a in-ground gunite swimming pool, then yes, you should be able to add a spa to the existing pool. (If you have a vinyl liner, or a fiberglass pool you may not have this option.)
Can a swimming pool shape be changed? In short the answer is yes, usually only if the swimming pool is a concrete structure. Changing the shape of a swimming pool can be very challenging, concrete steps & seats or ledges can easily be added.
The topic of the day started out as a question; can you install a vinyl liner into a concrete pool? Yes, you can, and I've done it before, on a concrete pool from the 1950's. Perched on a steep hillside, the pool was crumbing and cracking, and would one day soon need replacement.
Maybe you bought a house with a pool that is not large enough to accommodate your needs, or maybe it has a shape that you don't particularly enjoy and you would like to renovate. Whatever the reasons, Neave Pools is here to help. Enlarging a swimming pool or adding a spa can be a large undertaking.
A well-maintained concrete pool should last around 50 years or more. And a well constructed in-ground concrete swimming pool should last a lifetime. But, a pool's liner or finish won't last long. And thus, an in-ground concrete pool will need to be resurfaced every 10 to 15 years.
A pool can increase not only your social worth but also the value of your home. However, the increase is probably not as much as you think. According to HouseLogic, there's no real guarantee that you'll make your money back. In fact, adding a swimming pool may only increase your home's value by 7%.
Adding a waterfall to an existing pool involves a good understanding of your pool's mechanics, drainage, masonry, pump systems and filtration. Once your waterfall is installed, our team at ABC Home & Commercial Services can handle any needed repairs, maintenance and pool cleaning.
Pool waterfalls make it easier to maintain and clean your swimming pool by keeping the water moving. Fast movement of swimming pool water prevents dirt from settling and creates negative ions that purify the entire pool. A water pool isn't a replacement for a filtration system but an enhancement.
Most fiberglass pools are known to last 25-30 years, but we take that to the next level. Our manufacturer, Narellan Pools, makes the best fiberglass pools around. Their unique fiberglass formula results in a pool that can last as long as 50 years! Plus, these pools are notoriously easy to maintain.
Fiberglass pools are extremely easy to maintain, can be installed quickly, are very durable, and can be beautifully designed. However, their initial cost can be higher than vinyl liner pools, and the shapes and sizes are not as customizable.
Fiberglass swimming pools are very compatible with salt water systems. If you are using a vinyl liner pool, you must be careful as those pools tend to have metal parts or connections which salt will eat through and corrode.
