Design & Build




Similar to your home, trends are ever changing for pools and landscaping. Investing in periodic remodels are necessary to keep your home’s value and appeal in tune with the marketplace. Even more importantly is the excitement and enjoyment you will experience with a pool and landscape remodel. Additionally, investing in new innovative technologies, and the design curb appeal of your home, will provide a healthy return on investment.
Modernizing a dated backyard design can be anything from a new surface finish or pool liner all the way to changing the pool shape. Design elements such as colours, textures, mood settings and features allow you to transform your backyard space. From lighting, fire bowls, water features to landscaping, the remodel design will make your backyard brand new again, ready to enjoy for decades to come. Innovative technologies like automation make swimming pool ownership easy. A swimming pool remodel is an exciting process.

Remodel “Project Awesome” – Before & After

Featured is a recent remodel completed by Gib-San Pools. The homeowners purchased a home with an existing Gib-San Pool years ago and contacted us to remodel the old concrete pool to suit their needs. They requested we revive the existing fireplace and increase the pool size for their entertainment needs. In addition, we provided them with a covered area tied into the pool design, multiple seating areas, new interior finish, lighting, pool equipment, new entry stairs and much more. It was important that we tied in the rustic ranch environment into our design while also maximizing its west facing vista. 

Is your pool too big? Do you want to change the pool design? Gib-San can turn both issues into a solution!

Before & After

Before & After

Client Presentation | Realistic 3D Renderings

Our Design team created very realistic design renderings to provide a thorough concept for these client’s to visualize. The decision was to cut the pool to provide more entertainment space.

Remodel Refinements

While very similar to the original design concept, full length stairs were built, rather than side stair entry, beside of the attached spa. The clients loved the idea of having dedicated zones around the pool area and the reclaimed space to sit, sip and slip into the pool for a dip, all while admiring their waterfront views. Below is an example of the design process.

Design elements to consider

Find inspiration for your backyard renovation. Our clients are always delighted at how, with the simple application of upgraded features and finishing’s around the pool, the transformation can be unrecognizable! For concrete pools, Pebble Tec offers many options for finishes from smooth finishes to textured as well as a wide range of colours to choose from. The selected interior finish of your pool provides aesthetics as the surface colours determine the water colour. Many years ago, these surfaces were simply painted, now we can apply plaster finishes that provide more durability, safety and quality. If the pool is vinyl, there is an amazing array of patterns and colours to choose from, all of which will provide a new pool appearance. Our designers can advise you about focal features such as fire pots, sheer descent waterfalls, sunning steps and cabanas.
