    Pool remodel - Acworth, GA (Atlanta)

    At the finishing stages of a pool remodel in Acworth, GA (Atlanta area). Great experience so far with our contractor. Here are a couple of before pictures, and the almost-finished product. At this point, they still have to adjust the color of the stamped concrete, seal it, cap the wall, build the fireplace and firepit, and resurface the pool. This has been fun to watch!

    Looks great! I can't wait to see the complete transformation! What have you decided for the interior finish?

    Welcome to the forum. Sorry to suggest work, but I would remove those leaves. Tannic acid (from the leaves) will leave a stain on your new plaster which is removable but only with some effort.

    How neat is that! Good job!

    Now your next job is to get a good test kit! Look in my siggy for the one we use and love!

    Adjust the color on the decking? What do you mean?

    We removed 6 trees from the yard. Those leaves are the leftovers. New finish going in today, no leaves!

    Caribbean blue pebble finish. I'm so excited to see it!

    Not sure of the terminology, but when they poured the concrete they mixed in a brown color. Then they coated the top with a fine gray powder. That's the color on the photo. Then they come back with acid and a pressure washer and remove some of the gray, exposing the brown underneath. Then they seal it. Will post a picture of it soon. Looks amazing.

    The color looks great! Maybe I missed it, but what product and color did you go with?

    Oops... Just scrolled up and saw you said it was Carribbean Blue. Was that by Stonescapes?
