Tips for a Complete Pool Remodel

Posted in Swimming Pools

During the sunshine and swimming season, your pool area is the busiest place around your home – a cool dip in morning, a refreshing swim in the late afternoon and many evenings relaxing on the pool deck with friends and family. If your pool area needs a remodel to get ready for the busy season ahead, here are some tips to make this popular spot spectacular.

  • One of the simplest ways to make your pool look new again is resurfacing. Adding a quality surface like Pebble Tac or Diamond Brite will make the surface safe for swimmers and soft on their feet while giving the pool a beautiful appearance.
  • Pool deck. Adding a new pool deck can change the entire appearance of your pool area. Tumbled marble pavers are a stunning choice for pool decks, with excellent drainage, a cool surface and fade resistance.
  • For a complete pool area remodel, you also need to incorporate the landscaping. Adding plants that compliment your pool area adds a natural touch and blends in your property with the pool space.
  • Features. Adding a water fall or wall to your pool can add sound and movement. Other features to consider are underwater lights, spot lighting and fire features. ‘These little elements can make your pool area the centerpieces of your home and are especially beautiful for nighttime entertaining by the poolside.

This year, be the envy of the neighborhood with a complete pool remodel. Call your local contractor that offers pool renovations, pool resurfacing, pool decks and landscaping – It is simpler when one contractor can do it all, from design to completion.

What Are Travertine Pavers?

Posted in Paver Driveways

If you have been considering using pavers for a new driveway, pool deck or patio, there is a good chance you have come across travertine pavers in your research. Travertine has become one of the most popular paving materials for outdoor projects, especially in warm regions such as the southeastern portion of the U.S. So what is travertine and why is it so prevalent in paving? Here are some facts about travertine pavers.

  • Often called travertine marble, travertine is not a marble at all, but instead a type of limestone. It is found in many different areas around the world, including most notably from Italy, as well as Turkey, Mexico and here in the U.S.
  • Travertine comes in a wide range of colors from pink and coral to dark tan and white. It can be tumbled and porous or polished and shiny, making it versatile and great for many uses.
  • Travertine is highly durable and is easy to maintain in outdoor paving structures. It is also fade resistant and easy to repair.
  •  Pavers can be cut in a variety of sizes and shapes, plus its natural beauty makes it wonderful for creating unique designs for patios and driveways.
  • One of the elements that makes travertine ideal for patios and pool decks is its cool exterior. Unlike bricks or cement that are hot to bare feet in the summer, travertine stays cool.

This durable, beautiful stone is one of the preferred natural stones that works well for most outdoor paving projects. If you are planning on using pavers for a new project, ask your local paving company about the option of travertine pavers.
