Since 1992, we’ve remodeled thousands of pools, many of which are commercial jobs. Whether the remodel is for the city, a resort, neighborhood, or condo/apartment complex our number one goal is to make the client happy. We don’t leave the job until we accomplish this all important goal. We were recently hired by Crown Pools to remodel the pool and spa at Belleza Condominiums, an upscale development in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The manager of the complex wanted to refinish the interior, update the tiles, and add new internal light fixtures. She requested a navy blue tile, which apparently was in very limited supply nationwide. We were able to locate the tile through a distributor in Arizona. Being a commercial pool, the surface of the tile would need to be baked with a non skid finish. We had the tiles shipped to West Palm Beach to have this process done and within three days we had the tile. During this time, our remodel crew went to work prepping the pool and spa for the tiles and new plaster. The pool was drained and the guys chipped out the old gutters to make room for the new plaster. Within a week the new tiles were installed and the pool/spa was ready for plaster. The spa was finished with pebble and the pool would get Krystalkrete. Two different finishes meant we’d have to use two pump rigs.
The plaster crew started mixing at 7 am and finished troweling before lunch time. By the end of the day the pool and spa had been acid washed and were ready to be filled. After the pool has been filled it typically takes about a week for the chemical setup and to work out minor kinks that come with all remodels.
