  1. Assessment and Planning: Begin by thoroughly assessing the current state of your pool. Identify areas that require attention and envision the changes you want. Collaborate with a professional pool designer or contractor to create a comprehensive plan that aligns with your vision and budget. At Blue Glass, we meet with you in person at your home and also in our show room, to give you the opportunity to explore finish and tile options in person. 

  2. Permitting: Check local regulations and obtain any necessary permits for your remodeling project. Compliance with local building codes is crucial to ensure a seamless and legal process. Blue Glass values being compliant with licensing and permitting. This step is important for you the home owner to understand to protect you from any potential harm. 

  3. Draining the Pool: Once the planning is complete and permits are secured, the pool is drained to allow for detailed inspection and repairs. This is a critical step to address any underlying issues and prepare the pool for the upcoming modifications.

  4. Chip out & Demolition: Once the pool has been drained the demolition work begins. This phase involves removing old finishes, tile, and equipment to prepare for the upcoming upgrades. This step is carefully done by experienced pool demolition teams so as to not harm the underlying support structure of the pool. 

  5. Structural Repairs: Address structural concerns such as cracks, leaks, or damage. Steps can be taken to reinforce the pool's integrity to guarantee longevity and durability after the remodel is completed. 

  6. Aesthetic Upgrades: Implement the visual enhancements outlined in the plan, including new tile, plaster, or decking. This is where the transformation truly takes shape, and your pool begins to reflect your desired style and ambiance.

  7. Installation of Features: If you're adding new features like waterfalls, spas, or lighting, this is the stage where they are integrated into the design. Ensure that the installation aligns with the overall aesthetic and functionality of the pool.

  8. Filling and Testing: Once the remodeling work is completed, the pool is refilled and thoroughly tested. This includes checking the water chemistry, ensuring proper circulation, and confirming the functionality of added features. Proper maintenance of the new plaster is key to making sure your remodeled pool starts off on the right path.
