Water…it isn’t only the essence of life. For the home, water in the form of water features and backyard pool remodels let you know you’ve made it. Nothing elevates both the financial and personal value that a pool does for the home. It’s also one of the easiest ways to provide the right environment to create family fun and lasting memories (that and fire features).
Creating a brand new pool, or remodeling an existing one, has never been more obtainable in today’s economy. And no one does it better than California. In fact, southern California has a rich history of residential pool construction — originated during the home improvement and “residential innovation boom” of the 1950s. We’ve arguably perfected outdoor living when it comes to laying poolside in your backyard. Who could blame us!? No one wants to waste time inside when they can spend it outside in the California sun. So we extended our living to the outdoors.
Pool options have also never been so expansive. Between pool slides, artificial water falls, and rock boulders, water fun comes in all shapes and sizes today. Customizing your pool remodel can come in different scales, budgets, accessory options, and is only limited by the homeowners imagination. Heck, even the water used can be salt water or chlorine now.
Don’t get us wrong, pool remodels are a big project and is no small feat. That’s why the most important step is the planning phase. Think twice…hammer once.
Work with a professional who will take the time to explain everything, listen to your ideas, and even show you exactly what your pool will look like before construction even begins. And never settle for the first quote you get…mediocrity is not an option. There are simply too many contractors and options out there. Plus your hard-earned dollars shouldn’t be taken for granted.
We always recommend getting different quotes from at least 3 qualified contractors, in good-standing, and with great reviews, excellent customer feedback, fair pricing, and of course fully licensed, bonded, and certified for your area.
Just because something is a big project doesn’t mean it has to be overly complicated either. Shop around, do your homework, and visit different suppliers to pick out the right materials to match the look and feel of your home.
