This beautiful swimming pool & spa project located in Fredericksburg VA was the result of a failed fiberglass pool. The owners had contracted and built a fiberglass pool from another pool contractor. In a few years the pool bottom floated and rendered the fiberglass swimming pool unusable. The fiberglass contractor had then gone out of business, leaving the homeowners to fend for themselves. The customer contracted The Pool Company Construction to remove the existing fiberglass swimming pool and install a new more durable Gunite pool. The original design had a spa on the opposing end of the pool. The new design moved the spa closer to the home and we installed a raised bond beam with stone face on the original side of the pool that had the spa. We then installed water features in the wall to create a tranquil oasis for the homeowners. We used walnut travertine pool coping from the Stone Center of Fredericksburg. The pool plaster is River Rok Harbor Grey, which gives the pool water that fantastic color.
In order for any of that to happen we had to demo the existing fiberglass pool, the pool patio, remove all electric, remove all the existing plumbing and haul it away. Due to this we developed a check list for any homeowner considering purchasing a pool. This check list will help protect you from the fly by night contractor.
