Pool Renovation Guide 2020

A pool renovation shouldn’t be just a snap-of-the-finger kind of project.

Real dream pool renovation projects require some well thought out planning, budgeting, and extensive option consideration.

Today’s swimming pools have become more than just a place to cool off.

Homeowners now dream of a private oasis equipped with waterfalls and a swim-up bar, and hey, there’s nothing wrong with that.

But it is essential to understand what it takes to get what you want, properly budget for each feature, and partner with a compatible pool remodeling contractor.

In this article, we will be discussing a few key ways to plan out and execute the perfect pool remodel.

Building a Pool Renovation Budget Creating a pool renovation budget

Rule number one of pool renovations, you are going to need to set a reasonable and affordable budget.

Pool renovation costs can add up quickly if you don’t keep an eye on your budget, which is precisely why you should thoroughly plan out your needs, wants, and can’t do without features.

Upfront Considerations:

These are all questions you need to ask yourself to budget for your remodel accurately, as each factor will affect your costs.

When it comes to budget restraints (assuming you have any), you also need to prioritize what you want to achieve the best outcome.

Pool Renovation Research

Once your budget is firmly established, you can begin the fun part- research!

Start looking around online for local pool remodeling companies, check out what they offer, their quality of work, and don’t forget to read reviews!

It is crucial that what you want is within budget and within the scope of what your contractor can do as well.

Next, begin researching pool renovation ideas, pool remodeling must-haves, and even private oasis features that excite you.

In this stage of the pool renovation process, you need to take the time to discover what you need first, what you want second, and “what would be nice, but you can do without” third.

The discovery process will help you build a firm plan for your dream pool while staying within your budget and keeping stress to a minimum.

Pool Renovation Price Check

Here is where the planning gets a little sticky.

Once you have your pool renovation list, its time to start researching overall price points and material costs.

Gather all of your planning information, get an accurate estimate from a few professionals, and begin sorting out your options.

Unfortunately, (depending on how flexible your budget is) choosing an estimate bracket you are comfortable with may require nixing a couple “would be nice items” from your remodel list.

But that’s ok, you’ve created a strong enough plan that you are still getting what you want no matter what.

Make sure you compare the quality of work, reviews, and estimates of at least 2-4 pool remodeling contractors.
