Another Quality Pool Remodeling in Hunters Creek Orlando

It is time for another quality pool remodeling overview!

We just love the Hunters Creek area not only because it is located in the heart of Orlando, Florida but more so because we live their as well. In our line of work we travel hundreds of miles on a weekly basis which at times can be frustrating, especially due to the population growth Orlando has been seeing in the last couple of years driving has became a nightmare. So with that being said their is literally nothing better than work right in our backyards.
This pool remodeling could not have been more of a perfect job for us. Lovely area, cooperative homeowners, lake view and the weather in late December just topped it off. Once the homeowners made up their minds on the pool finish, tile, deck paint and of their choosing we were off to a good start. We even rewarded the homeowners with some new upgrade Quartz spillways replacing the thin travertine ones. Scroll down to see our progress and end result on this project and please feel free to leave some comments.

Swimming Pool Renovations and Upgrades in Hunters Creek Orlando

A much needed swimming pool renovation in Hunters Creek Orlando!

Majority of swimming pool renovations consist of re-tiling and resurfacing also known as plastering. However once in a blue we have a more extensive and complicated project.
When we met the homeowners for this renovations project they were highly concerned of their swimming pool’s current condition. The tile line had separations and cracks throughout the fountain spill-over feature was useless as fountains don’t have main drains making them difficult to clean, pool finish has discolorations and deterioration through out the surface and overall the entire pool area was in need for some refurbishment.
The homeowners were highly creative, cooperative and patient and after many brainstorming sessions we came up with some creative ideas and the swimming pool renovation work started. Initially we drained the pool and started the demolition and prep work. Making sure we remove any hallow-spots in the surface and under-cut around all the returns, jets and light fixture properly is a crucial part of the prep work, followed by removal of all of the planters and wooden deck on the outside of the enclosure. We then built a radius footer on the existing fountain wall and installed a custom radius cut Sheer Descent Waterfall, re-tiled the entire perimeter and radius wall, bonding-agent was applied to the surface, paver stones were installed over the Sheer Descent Waterfall, in the planters and replacing the old wooden deck with some beautiful paver stones and a single line retaining wall. The old fiber-optic light system was upgraded to a multi-color led lights with a remote control to turn the lights on and off and control colors. The homeowners even added their own touch by personally installing some starfishes in the pool steps and swim-outs. The pool resurfacing then took place which resulted in a beautiful smooth and exposed Quartz finish. Followed by rolling a few coats of Acrylic based deck paint to give the entire pool area a final touch thus completing the swimming pool renovations project.

Pool Refurbishment in the Beautiful Lake Forest Subdivision in Sanford

Just some needed pool refurbishment

What began as a straight forward pool resurfacing ended being an entire pool refurbishment. Initially the plan was just to resurface the interior finish of the swimming pool and leave the rest as is, since the tiles were in great shape and not breaking off anywhere. However after draining the pool we noticed the tiles were heavily calcified and non-cleanable. At this point a tile redo was necessary and we gave the customers some tiling recommendations and decided on a modern looking and a easily cleanable tile. Due to the efforts of our service crews the end result was a beautifully renovated swimming pool which one can be proud of.

Property located in the beautiful subdivision of Lake Forest in Sanford, Florida.

Factors to Consider When Choosing your Pool Resurfacing Company

It is time for a Pool Resurfacing

Swimming pools are a forgettable luxury even in Orlando. When not properly cared for or the natural process of Wear & Tear occurs the finish eventually starts to look cosmetically unbearable. When this stage occurs a swimming pool resurfacing is necessary and all homeowners should steer away from individuals or non-licensed pool companies offering to paint your pool for a couple hundred dollars. Why? Concrete pools are not meant to be painted, and the paint will flake off . Once the interior surface is painted, the surface will have to be sand blasted prior to resurfacing the pool with a proper cement based finish. Thus increasing your project cost by $1250-$2000+ depending on the size and condition of your swimming pool.

Consider these important factors prior to committing to a pool resurfacing company.

Few Factors to Consider

– Swimming pool contractor must have a valid
state license and not an, “occupational license”
Using a unlicensed contractor will void your
5-10 year manufactures warranty on your pool
finish against failure.

– The pool resurfacing contractors reputation in the industry.
Examples are positive/negative Online Reviews
or Presence?, customer references, and are they BBB Accredited ?

– The contractors response time is very important,
slow to call you back will likely end in slow to finish the job.

– The contractors communication skills and attitude, it is difficult to deal with someone who barely knows how to communicate
and doesn’t have their temper in check.

– Product knowledge and the contractors ability to educate you on the step-by-step finishing process and the pros and cons of various types of finishes.

– Finish options. It’s better to have more options if the contractor only shows you one or two samples that’s a RED FLAG. That would typically indicate limited experience installing various finishes.

– Completed project photos. We humans love the idea of Show don’t Tell.

Before & After of a Pool Resurfacing

– Comfortably with the contractor. You know the saying follow your instincts. Go with a contractor who you feel comfortable with and don’t make your decision based on PRICE. Remember you get what you pay for.

We hope this brief write-up was of some help. We know it doesn’t help answer every question or concern you may have however it does address some of the important factors.
