How Long Do Pool Renovations Take?
Summer is right around the corner and few things compare to spending a warm day by the pool. Whether it’s spending quality time with your family, hosting a pool party, or enjoying your day off from work, having a pool right outside of your backdoor is a true luxury.

So, How Long Does it Take to Finish a Pool Renovation?
Pool renovations aren’t a one-size-fits-all process. Fixing chipped tiling takes significantly less time than adding a spa to your pool, meaning project timelines will vary. Shoreline Pools will listen to your concerns, evaluate the state of your pool, and create a renovation plan that is tailored to your specific needs. Below are some of the most common renovations and their respective project timelines.
Pool resurfacing involves the removal and replacement of the top layer of the pool surface. This process seeks to repair structural damage (cracks or leaks) or overhaul the pool’s appearance. For instance, plaster, tile, and aggregate rank among the most popular pool finishes. In general, the pool renovation process takes about five to fourteen days, depending on weather delays, materials used, and permit acquisition.
Exposed pebble usually needs treatment after 15 years, while plaster falls between 5 to 15 years, and aggregates at 30 years. Choosing a pool finish often depends on what aesthetic you are trying to achieve. For example, plaster finishes prove inexpensive and give a classic look. Meanwhile, aggregate finishes are quite resistible to chemicals, offer excellent longevity and produce a unique look. Finally, tile finishes rarely need replacing unless they are dislodged or chipped and allow for visually stunning mosaics.
Coping is the material (often concrete or stone) used to surround the pool’s edges. Your pool’s coping may be susceptible to cracks as the soil expands and settles after rainfall, putting pressure on the pool’s coping. Cracks in the coping itself or cracks in the grout between the coping may cause structural damage to your pool if severe cracks aren’t fixed. It’s better to fix this sooner rather than later so that the integrity of your pool structure is not compromised. The severity of the cracks and any structural damage will determine how long pool renovations will last. Fully reinstalling coping can take three to four weeks, but if damage to your coping is less severe, it may only take a few days.
A Full Pool Remodel
If you’re looking to completely redo your pool, your timeline will fluctuate depending on the kind of changes you are looking to make. Simple renovations take about a month and require little to no demolition; simple renovations include services like repainting the pool deck, replacing waterline tile, and resurfacing the pool. However, if demolition and additional construction are necessary to create the pool of your dreams, you may be facing months of renovation. With longer renovations, you may need to sacrifice part of your summer vacation. Nonetheless, quality pool remodels will last anywhere from 15-25 years, making remodeling a worthwhile investment.
