A swimming pool is a great asset to any southern California home, and if you want to substantially increase the value of your home, a pool remodel service is a fantastic investment. In this article, we will review some of the best pool and pool-area upgrades that will serve to add terrific value to your home.
New pool tile is a great way to boost the attractiveness of your swimming pool. Slip-resistant, high-quality pool tiles with UV protection and a durability guarantee are especially excellent for increasing the value of your home.
New In-Ground Spa
If your pool area does not have a spa, adding one can definitely boost the value of your home. Spas are great for entertaining, especially in the wintertime, or at night when the sun is down and the air is cool.
If you want to boost the value of your home, pool landscaping is an essential component of any pool-remodeling project. Adding palm trees, pool-area tiles, grass, decorative rocks, and pool lighting are surefire bets for increasing your home’s value. Consider adding an outdoor kitchen, bar, fireplace, canopy, or television to elevate the value of your pool area even more.
A poorly maintained pool can actually hurt the value of a home, so it’s important to keep up with regular pool maintenance. Check the water chemistry, clean the pool filter, scrub the pool tiles, and inspect the cleaning equipment at least once per week to ensure a well-maintained pool.
Adding features to your pool such as a fountain, waterfall, slide, or swim-up bar will surely boost the value of your home. Similarly, remodeling your pool so that it features a more modern design, such as an infinity edge or a sloped entrance, can also increase your home’s value.

In southern California, it is not uncommon to find pools that have old, leaky copper pool plumbing that desperately needs to be replaced. Finding and fixing leaks from copper pool piping can be very aggravating and time-consuming.
Instead of spending more money on copper pool plumbing repairs, invest in high-quality Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) piping. Choose Rigid PVC Piping if you have an inground pool, or if you need piping with as much strength as possible. Flexible PVC Piping is not as strong and is often damaged by insects and rodents. But Flexible PVC Piping is easier to install and modify, as long as it is not used for an inground pool.
To learn more about the differences between Rigid and Flexible PVC pool piping, and the annoyances that can come with keeping old copper pool plumbing, come to Oliveira Pools. Serving the Los Angeles and Orange County areas since 1976, we offer top-notch pool remodeling and replastering services. Call us at (562) 217-4102 with your questions or visit our website for more information.

Why spend money on a brand-new pool when you already have one in your backyard? Pool remodeling is very popular in southern California because it’s an inexpensive way to completely re-energize your pool. If you are thinking about remodeling your pool, read this article for tips on how to select the right pool tile.
Look at Safety
Safety is a very important aspect to consider in your next pool tile, especially if children or elders will be using the pool area. Choose a tile with a slip-resistant surface, or make sure that the tiles you choose are treated to reduce the risk of slipping. Reliable pool remodeling companies will only sell pool tiles that have been inspected for safety.
Find the Right Style
If you want to go for a more traditional style, blue tiles or tiles with earth tones are great options. To create a bolder and more eye-catching design, choose a brightly colored pool tile, or a mosaic tile. Glass pool tiles are very popular these days, and they will help create an attractive, modern look for your pool area.
Ask About Durability and Maintenance
Buy waterproof tiles that feature UV protection to make sure your pool tiles will hold up year after year. Some pool tiles will come with a guarantee against damage, fading, and manufacturing defects. Before buying a pool tile, ask your pool remodeling company how to clean the tile and what chemicals need to be used.
Get Advice, Samples
If you are seeking the services of an experienced pool remodeler, don’t hesitate to ask them for advice on which pool tiles they think would look good in your pool. Ask for a sample so that you can get a better idea of how the tile will look in your swimming pool.

Pool remodeling may seem like an involved process, but if you go with an experienced pool remodeling company, they will make it look easy. Watch this video to see a time-lapsed pool remodel in three minutes.
Before a pool remodel can begin, the water must first be drained from the pool. After this, workers will clean the pool bottom. If any old materials need to be replaced, they will be removed, and the surface will be prepped for the installation of new materials. Siding, plaster, tiles, and other materials are added after this. Finally, water is added back into the pool. Once the water chemistry is balanced, the pool can be used again. To see the pool remodel in fast motion, watch the video.
