Recommendations for Delaware Pool Builders? (Tear down/new build)

Hi all-

We bought a home with an oval shaped, concrete pool that we’d like to update at some point in the future. We’d like to make it bigger, make it rectangular, and increase the decking. Is this an updating project or a tear down and redo project? Space isn’t an issue.

Any thoughts or advice appreciated!

Yeah, People have partially filled in their existing pool to make them smaller/shallower. You would be replacing so much to make yours bigger/square that it wouldn’t be worth trying to tie into what was left.

Thanks all, that was my assumption. Will have to get somebody out to take a look at some point.

Is there a good reference for pool builders, by area?

Thanks!

We replaced an existing smaller pool with a larger one a couple years ago. The existing pool was steel / vinyl. They ripped out everything....plumbing, decking, autocover, etc. Even though the footprint of the new pool would encompass most of the hole left behind from the demolition, i was surprised to see they didnt just expand the hole or use it in any way. They filled it in, in lifts, so that eventually you couldnt tell there was ever a pool there. Then they marked it and started the new dig as if there was never a previous pool there.
