Coping – San Antonio Pool Remodeling

Coping allows you to customize the look of your San Antonio 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 San Antonio, 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 San Antonio pool.

Deck – San Antonio Pool Remodeling

The deck design can transform your San Antonio 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 San Antonio pool’s deck. Custom stonework, travertine, pavers, poured concrete, decorative concrete, stamped and colored concrete– we have your pool ideas covered!

Remodeling Pool Decking

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 San Antonio, 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 San Antonio pool deck than actually inside your swimming pool. During a San Antonio 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.

Tile Decks

As part of your San Antonio 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.

Stone Decking in San Antonio

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 San Antonio, 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.

Plaster – San Antonio Pool Remodeling

Should I Re-Plaster?

For San Antonio Pool Remodeling, there are three questions will help you make this important decision.

#1 Do you experience water loss in your San Antonio pool?

Water loss can occur based on any number of problems. First, cracks in a San Antonio 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 San Antonio pools, we use the plaster manufacturers’ recommended product and procedure for preparation.

#2 Is your San Antonio pool surface really rough?

As plaster gets older, or because of improper chemistry, its surface becomes rough by etching or begins scaling. In San Antonio, 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 San Antonio pool?

For your San Antonio 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 San Antonio, 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.
