At least once a year, Signature Pools is approached by a homeowner asking to have their old, damaged pool replaced. In some cases our clients are simply tired of the maintenance and upkeep of a vinyl or concrete pool; other pools are completely un-useable and eyesores in their backyard. In either case, we are happy to consult with these customers, evaluate the condition of their existing swimming pool equipment, and design a plan to transform the backyard into a family oasis and gathering place.
The project below, located in Addison IL, started with an old, damaged vinyl liner swimming pool. The homeowners wished they could have a place for the entire family to enjoy, and called in Signature Pools and Spas to re-design and construct the space. Take a look at some of the before and after pictures below, or click here for a photo series of the entire transformation!
This is what the existing vinyl liner pool looked like when we showed up. You can see the wrinkles in the vinyl and how the walls are collapsing into the pool. Also notice how dirty the liner gets over time. No amount of scrubbing will bring back the original color to the surface. This pool is completely useless in its present state.
Once the old vinyl pool is removed, workers prepare the excivated site, remove any more necessary dirt, and set the sand base for the fiberglass pool. Great care is taken to make sure this base is constructed to exacting standards.
The fiberglass pool shell is carefully set into place on the sand base and immediately filled with water. Sand and stone is then backfilled around the outside of the pool. Later, concrete forms will be placed around the pool to form the pool deck and secure the pool into place.
Once concrete is poured the forms are removed from the edges. Here you can see the fresh concrete right after it is poured. Only a few more days and this project is complete.
Final touches are added to the swimming pool area. In this picture you can see the completed backyard transformation, including a water slide, textured concrete around the pool, and a large brick paver patio.
