How Long Will My Pool Remodel Take?

Posted on: April 25th, 2023 by

Summer is just around the corner and that means pool season is almost here. If you’ve been putting off a much-needed pool remodel, now is the time to get it done so that you can enjoy your new pool once the weather gets hot. You may be wondering how long your pool renovation will take, and whether you can get it done before pool season starts.

Unfortunately, there’s no specific answer to the exact timeline of your pool renovation. In general, most pool remodels will take between four to eight weeks depending on the size of your pool, the complexity of the renovation project, the availability of materials and your pool renovation company’s schedule. That being said, extremely simple remodels can be done in less time, and extremely complex projects may take significantly longer than two months.

Average Pool Renovation Timeline

For relatively simple pool remodel projects that just involve resurfacing the pool’s interior and deck, the project can be completed relatively quickly. However, the timeline will expand if you need to reshape the pool or add to your deck. If you are adding significant features such as fountains, rock waterfalls, shade structures or barbeque installations, the project can span several months.

The following timeline will give you a rough estimate of what to expect from your pool renovation.

Planning (1-3 weeks)

You should always spend a few weeks on the planning phase of your project. This is a critical component, as it will set your project up for success and ensure you get what you want out of your pool remodel. During this time, you should spend time looking at pictures of other pool renovations to get some ideas about the features you want to include in yours. This will help you discuss your goals with potential contractors.

Once you have a good idea of what you want to achieve, schedule consultations with a few pool renovation companies. We recommend speaking with at least two or three companies before you choose one. This will help ensure you truly understand the scope of the work and find a reputable company you trust before moving forward with the project.

By the end of the planning phase, you should clearly understand:

Demolition (1-2 weeks)

demolition phase of a pool remodelNo matter what your pool renovation entails, you will most likely need to complete some demolition work at the start of the project. This can be as minor as chipping away old tile before resurfacing your pool and deck, or it can involve extensive demolition work to break apart your pool in order to alter the depth, shape or auxiliary features.

Depending on the extent of the demolition work, it can take between one to two weeks to complete.

Renovation Work (1-3 weeks)

As with the demolition, the timeline on the actual renovation work will depend on the complexity of the project. Simple pool resurfacing jobs can usually be completed within a week or two. However, if you are doing a major renovation that involves altering the shape and dimensions of your pool, adding masonry features, building a spa, or adding a beach entryway, you should expect the project to take a little longer.

In most situations, larger renovation projects can be completed within three weeks. However, for extremely complex projects, the timeline can potentially be significantly longer. During the planning phase, our pool renovation experts will give you a clear estimate for the timeline associated with this stage of the process.

Replacing Your Pool Deck (1-3 weeks)

The timeline for replacing a pool deck can vary widely based on the scope of the project. If you’re only resurfacing existing decking, it can usually be completed within one week. However, major deck renovations, such as an expansion of your existing deck, may take two to three weeks to complete.
