Ways to Increase Your Home Value via Pool Upgrade

Hey, swimming pool owners - A swimming pool remodel can be a great way to increase the value of your home. There are a few things you can do to get the most bang for your buck, including:

  • Upgrading your pool decking

  • Adding new features or amenities

  • Resurfacing your pool walls

  • Improving the landscaping around your pool

  • Make sure your pool water is properly maintained and clean

Take Your Pool Deck to the Next Level

Something as simple as installing a new outdoor deck made of pavers or natural stone can make all the difference in the visual appeal of your swimming pool. If your current pool has seen better days, this is one of the easiest ways a "pool renovation" can add value to your home.

Upgrade Your Pool Water Features

When we say water features, most pool owners may think we mean extravagant fountains, expensive diving boards, or water slides - we don't. We are talking about features that make your pool easier to maintain or more pleasant for you to enjoy. Nowadays, pool tech is pretty incredible. You can have your entire pool system operating from remote control and have access to check your pool chemistry levels, activate color-changing lights, turn on your pool heater, and any other great ideas you can think of! Swimming pool equipment manufacturers like Hayward take automation to the next level. Check out our video all about Hayward Automation HERE.

Something else to consider is upgrading your pool equipment. The pool pump is the main upgrade that can add value to your pool resale value. There are many different types of pumps available on the market these days from single-speed pumps, variable speed pumps, and even pumps that connect to a pool heater if you want to be able to enjoy swimming pools during the winter months.

Some pool owners aren't aware of how far pool system technology has come in the past few years. A variable-speed pump can actually run much more efficiently than the older single-speed pump. What does this mean for you? It means cost savings on your energy bill and water savings due to improved water circulation design.

Some other pool upgrades you can add that increase the aesthetic appeal of your pool and safety are led pool lights and non-slip powder-coated handrails.

Remodel or Refinish Your Swimming Pool

Pool surface walls normally last an average of 10-12 years before starting to deteriorate. That average can get knocked down if the pool is not properly maintained. If you enter a pool that needs resurfacing - it is immediately noticeable. The pool plaster will be brittle and rough on the bottom of your feet. Not only can this be dangerous for the individuals swimming in the pools, but it can also mean serious work for your pool filter and robotic vacuum - which will be expensive to repair or replace.

Update Outdoor Living Space & Pool Area

To keep your pool safe and inviting, consider adding features that will benefit it. For example, trees or shrubs can lower heat loss while decreasing evaporation helps cut down on water costs! If you don't want to add any greenery but still need protection from harsh winds and ensure an aesthetically pleasing design feature for years into the future, go with a walled hardscape construction like pergolas which creates instant beauty without sacrificing functionality in any way at all!

Properly Maintain Your Pool System

Although pool upgrades help, if your pool water is murky and unswimmable - chances are a potential buyer isn't going to want to purchase your house. The maintenance can differ depending on the type of system you have, salt system or chlorine system. If you want to learn more about the differences between the two, you can read our blog all about it HERE.

Potential buyers will consider many factors when deciding whether or not to buy your home, including the condition of your swimming pool. By ensuring your pool is in good condition and adding value with a remodel, you can increase your chances of selling your home.
