How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Pool?

Posted on: May 31st, 2024 by

Are you considering remodeling your pool this summer? There are many reasons to remodel your pool: improve your enjoyment of the pool, make it more appealing to spend more time at the pool, increase the value of your property, and more. However, deciding whether you want to go forward with a pool renovation often depends on one major factor: how much will it cost?

The truth is that a pool remodel is a custom procedure whose cost depends exclusively on the exact renovations you’re looking for. The best way to know how much it will cost to remodel your pool is to request an estimate from Allen Pool. We’ll come out and listen to your ideas, then propose a plan to achieve your pool remodel goals, along with a reliable estimate of the cost.

However, if you’re not ready to request an estimate, here is some general information and factors that might influence your costs to consider first.

Pool Remodel Cost: Best Objective Data

As we’ve said, a pool renovation is a custom procedure with costs that can vary widely depending on what type of remodel you want. However, we can get a general idea of what a pool remodel could cost by looking at data from actual prior pool renovations.

Angie’s List provides us with a good, current estimate of pool remodel costs. They draw their data from actual pool renovations performed by professionals in their network for customers, then compare that data with other industry sources to ensure its accuracy. They say that the average cost of a pool remodel in February 2024 was just under $10,000, with a normal range of $5000 to $15,000.

Factors That Influence the Cost of a Pool Remodel

pool renovationHow do you know whether to expect that your pool remodel is likely to be average, below average, or above average in terms of cost? Consider some of the factors that go into the cost of remodeling to give yourself an even better idea about whether your pool renovation will cost.

Type of Remodel

Some types of remodeling are more expensive than others. For example, adding a simple slide or ladder is going to be less expensive than changing the shape of the pool by adding entry steps or a beach entry.

Some of the pool remodels with above-average costs include:

Some of the pool remodels with below-average costs include:

A common pool remodel that falls in the average range is adding a tanning ledge, though this is also dependent on some of the other factors.

Size of the Pool

One big factor that influences the cost of your pool remodel is the size of your pool. Larger pools require more materials, and it takes more time to complete the renovation of a larger pool than a smaller one.

Not all pool remodels are affected by the size of your pool. For example, if you just want to add a pool slide, that doesn’t depend on the size of your pool. However, remember that remodels of the pool deck are also influenced by the size of the pool, because the deck runs beside or even around the pool.

Quality of Materials

Consider the case of resurfacing an average-size pool that has about 500 square feet of surface area. Resurfacing a pool with material that costs $2 per square foot will cost just $1000. However, resurfacing the pool with material that costs $30 per square foot will cost $15,000! That’s a wide range of costs, and almost every phase of your pool remodel can have options with this disparate level of costs. That’s why it’s so hard to give a figure for what your pool renovation will cost before we talk to you about the specific options you’re considering.
