Tile Styles for your Galveston Pool
Pool tiles can transform the look of your Galveston pool and give it a unique custom appearance. Our experienced Design Team will assist you in choosing the shape and color of a pool tile layout. You have many options in Galveston… Some people prefer amazing blue tiles to line the wall of their pool. Others desire the more environmental earth tone tiles uniquely placed around their pool. We will assist you in drawing the dream vision of your Galveston pool every step of the way.
There is a wide range of tile styles, looks, and pricing. Much of this depends on the material chosen (glass, ceramic, porcelain, etc) and the manufacturer. We use a thin-set mortar & grout material – we use the appropriate materials for the type and size of tile you choose. Our energy is focused on ensuring the integrity of the installation and the lasting beauty of the tile.
Coping allows you to customize the look of your Galveston pool. The perfect coping completes the border between your pool and decking or landscaping – it is a critical accent. There is a wide variety of materials available for coping installation. For your Pool Remodeling in Galveston, several items will dictate which material is best to use for each renovation situation: a) the thickness and width of the existing coping, b) the overall look you have in mind, and c) cost. In many cases, flagstone coping is less expensive than limestone coping and is installed where a customer desires a more rugged, natural look. Limestone and travertine are used where modern, smooth lines will align with the shape of your Galveston pool.
The deck design can transform your Galveston backyard appearance and create a wonderful entertainment area.
Are your decks in such bad shape that sections are falling away from the pool? If so, then pool remodeling should include upgrading your Galveston pool’s deck. Custom stonework, travertine, pavers, poured concrete, decorative concrete, stamped and colored concrete– we have your pool ideas covered!
Tile design and pool decking can be the backdrop for the entire pool entertainment space. Are you looking for a courtyard feel, a modern look, or a natural environment? Your decking pulls together your backyard feel. In Galveston, choose from flagstone, interlocking pavers, and many other options such as textured or stained concrete. Decking is a critical choice for the overall environmental feel you’re trying to achieve.
As a pool owner, you will typically spend more time on your Galveston pool deck than actually inside your swimming pool. During a Galveston pool remodel, it is important to choose a decorative concrete, stone, or wood pool deck that is attractive and provides a safe non-slip surface for entertaining and simply socializing.
As part of your Galveston pool remodeling, there are many types of tile decks. Tile often does a great job replicating wood, stone, marble, or brick. Because tile is not difficult to install, you can make your existing deck larger if you have space. You can find different shapes and sizes from specialty dealers, but the square is the most popular.
Pavers are very popular for Galveston pool remodeling. Pavers come in a number of different sizes, colors, and shapes. Brick Pavers, Concrete Pavers, and Travertine Pavers are some of the most common Galveston pool remodeling deck pavers. In your Galveston Pool Remodel, Pavers can create a range of looks to suit any pool deck. Safety is one of the key features that pool deck pavers offer. Pool deck pavers have high wear and tear resistance and have a non-slip surface that will last a long time.
Stone Decking in Galveston
Stone decking is available in many shapes, sizes, and colors. It is a wonderful method for adding a natural aesthetic to your yard. For Pool Remodeling in Galveston, stone decking is the most popular choice for homeowners who have designed a natural-looking swimming pool with boulders and cascading waterfalls. The stone finish Pool Deck Resurfacing is done by embedding large stones, finely cut into a layer of concrete. This type of pool deck resurfacing is probably the best type of finish, as it not only looks good but has many advantages over the other methods of pool deck resurfacing. Another great advantage of this surface is that it provides natural friction – it is almost slip-proof.
Should I Re-Plaster?
For Galveston Pool Remodeling, there are three questions will help you make this important decision.
#1 Do you experience water loss in your Galveston pool?
Water loss can occur based on any number of problems. First, cracks in a Galveston swimming pool structure can show up through the plaster surface. Also, water can leak through many of the points around a pool (return inlets, light fixtures, etc). If your pool is losing water from somewhere other than plumbing, resurfacing may be a good solution combined with other work. For Galveston pools, we use the plaster manufacturers’ recommended product and procedure for preparation.
#2 Is your Galveston pool surface really rough?
As plaster gets older, or because of improper chemistry, its surface becomes rough by etching or begins scaling. In Galveston, our typical method of “start-up” (pool care for the first several weeks of plaster life) allows for a smooth-but-not-slick surface designed to add years of life to the plaster. It makes for a comfortable swim experience.
3# Do you like the current optics & look of your Galveston pool?
For your Galveston pool remodeling project, consider your pool an open canvas on which you can customize the look of your pool. We offer many aggregate finishes in a wide variety of attractive and resilient options that may suit your taste in style and color.
For concrete or gunite pools in Galveston, plaster is the most desirable finish. It comes in several forms and many color choices. When applied properly, and with no underlying structural problems, plaster provides a barrier between the structure of the pool and the water in which you swim.
