I am new to the forum and have spend hours and hours learning a ton!!! Than kyou all-what a great forum! I thought I might have to hire someone to take care of our pool, but after reading-I'm fairly confident I can do it on my own and save some $$$! So...We are getting bids from several pool builders here in Houston and, unfortunately, can't have it all If you had to choose between the following upgrades, which ones would be at the top of your list?
-Upgraded interior (plaster to quartz or pebble finish)
-Upgraded decking from spray deck (I really don't like the look of the generic spray deck coatings) to stamped concrete or pavers
-Water feature-water fall or raised wall with a sheer decent or 2
This is my thought process, let me know what you think
1) More deck (can always upgrade it in the future but hard to add on later)
2) I'm torn between a water feature and the interior-the water feature would add enjoyment for inside the house and sitting outside…but the pebble finishes hold up longer…but I suppose I could plumb for a water feature and add later?
3)Upgraded decking-although I think it adds a lot to the overall look, I suppose I could go back and upgrade in the future?
Anyways, just wanted to bounce it off some people that had a pool and could share their choices with me!
