Photos of a completed pool in Montgomery

We’re sick of the cold weather, as we’re sure you are. But don’t fret, this is Southeast Texas and it’ll be warm again, so warm that you’ll want to do nothing more than jump in your swimming pool. To give a tease of those great days to come, here are some pictures of a completed pool in Montgomery along the shores of Lake Conroe to tide you over until it’s time to complain about the heat again.

Enjoy!

Recent pictures of pools, Harvey relief information

Before showing off these pictures, we want to show our support for all of those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. It’s been a tough week-plus for the Houston area and Southeast Texas and we’d like to give our best. We are available to help on any pool maintenance issues that storms and flooding have caused and encourage you to help in whatever way you can.

You can donate food or clothing to local shelters such as the one at College Park High School, donate to organizations such as the Red Cross either online or via text (text “HARVEY” to 909-99). Texans’ defensive end J.J. Watt is also heading up a fundraiser which has received $10 million in donations.

While we look to recover, help and move forward, here are some pictures. These images, and more, can also be viewed in our galleries.

Pictures from another pool transformation

We touched on the Groner pool replastering in a previous post, as Matthew Groner graciously allowed us to use photos he took of the remodel. But we also took a few photos of our own to document the transformation of the old Groner pool to Groner pool 2.0.

Pictures from a remodel in The Woodlands

Along with building brand-new swimming pools, we also look to remodel existing swimming pools. Think of remodels like a swimming-pool makeover. Take your old swimming pool, alter it a bit and it’s as good as new. Remodels aren’t easy and aren’t able to be done on every pool, but when they are, they can inject new life into your backyard.

Here are some pictures of a remodel that we did in the Cochran’s Crossing neighborhood in The Woodlands.

The remodel process

Here are some initial photos of what the pool used to look like. Notice the brick coping on the spa and encircling in the first picture and the weathered tile in picture No. 2. The customer was looking to trade the brick coping for flagstone coping and upgrade from the tile, along with getting a plaster facelift. These pictures give you an idea of what we were originally working with.

One of the first things we did was rip out the coping all around the pool and the spa. We also stripped the tile that encircled the hot tub. Here are some pictures of us “doing out with the old.” The first two deal with the coping around the pool while the rest concentrate on the spa.

As mentioned above, we also resurfaced the pool, which included replastering. Notice the holes in the bottom of the pool. They are called weep holes and are essential in surfacing a pool because they don’t allow the shell to “float” away. You can read more on that concept here while enjoying these pictures.

Finishing the remodel

Now that you’ve seen the process, here are the results. As you’ll notice, the brick encircling the pool and the shelf of the spa has been replaced with flagstone, and the weathered tile along the sides is now eye-catching brick. We also added a pretty sturdy rock formation alongside the spa. That goes with a nice plant area alongside the edge of the pool, and we resurfaced the pool with a nice new layer of plaster.

In case you were worried, the spa works just like new. We even tried it out!

Replastering photos

We’re feeling pretty photo happy at Ultimate Pools lately, so here’s a look at a couple of pictures that a customer shot from a replastering job in The Woodlands. A hearty thank you to Matthew Groner for the photos.

Update: The replastering is finished and the pool is filled, just in time for the beginning of swim season.
