A pool is a great investment, but only if it remains in proper working condition. Just as certain components of your home will eventually require replacement or renovation, your pool demands the same attention. The average inground pool has a lifespan of approximately 15 years, after which time pool renovations become necessary. Pool liner replacements are typically necessary at five- to ten-year intervals, and equipment replacement may occur even more frequently. At Royal Pool & Spa, we’re here to help you get the most out of your pool, so if you’re dealing with any of the following issues, it’s time to consider renovating your pool.


You’re Paying for Pool Repair Services Frequently

Are you constantly calling for pool repair services? Are you frequently finding new cracks, replacing outdated pool equipment, or losing water inexplicably? If so, it’s high time for pool renovations. Just like any other structure, your pool has a finite life. If you’ve neglected maintenance, or you’ve just purchased a home with an outdated pool, renovations may be necessary. 


New and growing cracks may be cause for alarm, especially if you locate them in the foundation. As well, damaged pool coping can present a safety hazard for anyone who uses your pool. A quick call to a pool renovation service can help you determine what’s in imminent need of replacement so you can get the most out of your pool.


Your Pool Looks Outdated

Do you find yourself neglecting your pool because it looks as though it jumped straight out of the 80s? Yes, headbands and leg warmers might be making a comeback, but an outdated pool deck is never in style. If you hope to sell your home at some point, an outdated pool can significantly detract from your home’s value.


Even if selling isn’t on your radar, pool renovations are a simple way to derive more enjoyment from your time spent outdoors. Perhaps new tile or a liner replacement can improve your pool’s attractiveness and encourage you to enjoy it more often. Or, new tile or brick pool coping is a nice finishing touch that can dramatically improve the appeal of your pool. All it takes is a few tiny tweaks to make your backyard shine.


You Notice Signs of Aging or Damage

Have you noticed cracks in your pool? Depending on their size, they may or may not impact your pool’s structural integrity. Surface cracks, like spider cracks in a fiberglass pool, aren’t necessarily terrible, but they’re certainly not aesthetic, either.


Another age-related pool issue, cracks in your pool deck, also detracts from your pool’s aesthetic. While pool renovations may not be absolutely necessary to maintain the integrity and functionality of your pool, you should definitely consider repairs if you hope to maintain its value.


Structural cracks, however, such as foundation cracks, are typically a result of poor installation or ground shifting over time. These cracks must be repaired promptly as they almost always contribute to leakage. To prevent structural cracks from growing and creating a serious issue, contact a swimming pool repair service to have gaps in the concrete sealed.
