Let us show you the latest in vinyl liner choices!

The most durable pool liners are typically thicker gauge vinyl, with 25 gauge being a common choice. Liners with double-welded seams also tend to be more durable. Additionally, liners treated with UV inhibitors can resist damage from the sun’s rays and last longer.

Liner Color and Pattern Options How to Choose

In vinyl pools, the color of the liner is one piece that dictates the overall color of the water and the aesthetic of the entire pool area. Liner colors come in so many patterns and hues that range from light aqua to bright blue to modern and moody and everything in between. Even with the same liner, the color looks different depending on the amount of clouds or sunlight, the depth of the water, the surrounding environment, and the time of day.  The best part about vinyl inground pool liners is that you have virtually an endless array of options in patterns, colors, shapes, and sizes. Beyond that, you’ll also have to factor in elements about your outdoor environment and pool usage. Let’s take a closer look at how you can make your pool match your life.

Vinyl-Swimming-Pool-Remodeling-in-Dix-Hills-NYVinyl Liner Swimming Pool Color

You may think that choosing a liner color is about personal taste, but there’s more to it. Dark liners can help absorb heat and warm up the water. They can also hide dirt and debris if you’re not keeping up with cleaning. But the darker the liner, the more likely it will be susceptible to bleaching by the sun and chlorine, and aging due to UV damage. Lighter liners may last longer because of less bleaching and UV damage. But you’ll have to stay on top of cleaning because dirt will show easily.

Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Pattern

Liners will likely have two different patterns: a border pattern above the water and another below the water. Of course, you also have the option of choosing one solid color throughout. From tile, pebble, and slate patterns to wavy, swirling, or abstract designs, you can truly customize your look.

Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Life Expectancy

A pool liner’s life expectancy is determined by how well you maintain your chemical balance, exposure to UV rays, freeze/thaw cycles, and whether you use a pool cover. Using a cover greatly reduces the amount of UV exposure vinyl inground pool liners receive. The location of your house and tree coverage can also affect the exposure. With appropriate care, most liners can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years.

Vinyl Liner Swimming Pool Thickness

When browsing pool liner options, thickness should also be a consideration. A thicker liner is more durable, puncture-resistant, and less likely to leak over time, however, it can be more difficult to install due to its rigidity.

Swimming Pool Upgrades to Add

  1. Mechanical Renovation – Upgrade your old pump, filters, heater, and more for energy savings and lower maintenance costs. We supply and install a large selection of top-quality equipment and will be happy to discuss how you may benefit from an upgrade by lowering your operating costs, automating your systems, and increasing your enjoyment.

  3. New Water Features We can add exciting new water features and new options to your pool as part of the remodeling job. From water slides to new pool entries, underwater lighting, and more.  Renew your excitement in aquatic recreation by finding new ways to enhance your enjoyment.
  4. Complete Remodeling – If your pool is old, outdated, or damaged, a complete remodeling job may be your best bet and will restore its beauty. Our pool design and construction company can turn an old, faded, or damaged swimming pool into a real asset to your property. We will be happy to show you the possibilities.

Free-Formed Vinyl Pool and Travertine Patio Installation in Smithtown

Free-Formed-Vinyl-Pool-and-Travertine-Patio-Installation-in-Smithtown3Free-formed vinyl pool and travertine patio installation in Smithtown that looks as good as it did when it was first installed 13 years ago.  Travertine pavers and tiles have been a popular choice for centuries, and with good reason. Travertine has a timeless elegance that seamlessly matches almost any decor and never goes out of style. Plus, thanks to its natural stone properties, it’s perfect for outdoor areas, driveways, patios, pools, hardscapes, stair treads, and more.

Travertine is one of the most popular natural stone products (along with flagstone, limestone, and marble) that are used for large outdoor paving stones. Travertine is naturally slip-resistant, making it great for outdoor flooring, pool decks, and pool coping.

It’s also durable and long-lasting in exterior applications. If you live in a climate with freeze/thaw cycles, exterior travertine tile is a smart choice since it can handle temperature extremes.

And since it comes in a variety of natural hues and colors, it looks right at home in the outdoors next to other surfaces like wood, grass, and natural stone products.  Here are a few things to consider when planning your design.

Free-Formed-Vinyl-Pool-and-Travertine-Patio-Installation-in-SmithtownChiseled & Tumbled Finish

Chiseled and tumbled finishes are popular for outdoor areas due to their rustic look. Honed tile has a more polished finish and can be great for grill areas, outdoor kitchens, or anywhere else you want a refined look.

  • Indoor flooring tile will have a smoother and more polished finish.
  • Exterior pavers are much thicker, with a more rustic finish.

Choosing The Best Pattern

The pattern can also make a big difference in the overall look of the outdoor floor. Some of the most common patterns are:

  • Running Bond: A running bond pattern with silver or grey pavers is a nice choice for a cool modern look.
  • Basket Weave
  • Herringbone
  • French Pattern: The French pattern with chiseled pavers gives a refined, old-world look to your patio.

Custom Free-form Vinyl Pools

Custom in-ground pools are attractive and have features with endless customization options. With your pool installation, you can add lighting, fountains, and decorative tile or stone.  All while creating a surrounding landscaping that evokes a tropical paradise! Each time you step outside, it will be like stepping out of your home into a luxury resort.

As a homeowner, you want to do everything you can to improve your home’s value.  Custom pools on Long Island are highly sought-after amenities that will attract buyers and boost your home’s value. An inground pool can last for decades, so even if you’re not going anywhere for a while, you’ll get years of enjoyment from your pool, and then you can look forward to a return on your investment when it’s time to sell.

Free-Formed-Vinyl-Pool-and-Travertine-Patio-Installation-in-Smithtown2At Gappsi, we provide comprehensive services related to both the design and construction of vinyl liner pools.  It all starts by helping you design the right pool for the size and shape of your yard, budget, and even HOA guidelines. We’ll combine those boundaries with your design preferences to create the perfect in-ground pool and surroundings.

Our pool builders at Gappsi have a thorough, step-by-step building process to make the installation as quick, efficient, and hassle-free as possible. From the time we receive the permit and start outlining your space, to the setup of the initial chemical treatment.  Once the pool is ready, you can depend on us to do the job right!

Make Your Pool Area Look Timeless and Stylish with Travertine Pavers

Free-Formed Vinyl Pool and Travertine Pavers in Smithtown, NY

This backyard was designed and built by Gappsi in 2010 over 13 years ago.  Jeff happened to stop by and visit recently the home. As you can see this project is just as nice as the day it was installed by Gappsi. Our team built a free-form vinyl pool with concrete walls and a bench in the deep end.

The homeowner chose a mocha-colored full-nose travertine stone for the pool’s coping. The patio was installed with Classico Travertine a lighter version of the moca travertine.

The raised patio was built with Hanover Chapel Stones for the wall and steps.  We also used Hanover Chapel Stones for the raised wall structure and the caps for the wall. The raised patio area uses the same travertine stone for the sitting wall and the radius section that surrounds the dining table.

Free-Formed-Vinyl-Pool-and-Travertine-Patio-Installation-in-Smithtown1We installed a water feature with a sheer descent wallfall that is self-contained.  A captivating waterfall for any new, remodeled, or existing pool area.  The waterfall faces the back door to the home and is in the center between the outdoor kitchen and seating area.

Outdoor Kitchen and Grill

Gappsi installed an outdoor kitchen that includes a Wolf Grill, bar sink, and an outdoor refrigerator. The backyard was kept immaculate with the beautiful natural backdrop setting of evergreens and manicured landscape.

Gunite Pool Repair and Backyard Design in Laurel Hollow NY

Gunite-Pool-Repair-and-Backyard-Design-in-Laurel-Hollow-NYSwimming in a Gunite pool is a great way to cool off, exercise, and have fun during the hot summer months.  Add in an outdoor kitchen, and you won’t have to miss out on the fun that’s happening at your home.  There are many benefits of an outdoor kitchen, and whether it be a simple or more complex outdoor kitchen design, you’ll find a benefit in both.

Gappsi recently designed and built a backyard for a private residence in Laurel Hollow NY. The backyard had an existing Gunite pool that we refinished and restored. We installed new coping, and porcelain tiles in the water line under the coping, then finished the pool with gray marble dusting. The coping consists of bull nose walnut travertine which was also used throughout the backyard for caps on walls and steps.

Gunite Pool Repair and Maintenance

Owning a pool also comes with a certain amount of responsibility. Regular pool maintenance is essential to keep your pool clean, safe, and in good condition.  When you have a gunite pool, repairs are easy to schedule and take less time than you think. We offer our clients:

  • Pool service options to help maintain the pools we build
  • Restoration of older pools fallen into disrepair
  • Concrete pool resurfacing to keep your pool looking great
  • Repairs that bring an older pool up to code
  • Total gunite/shotcrete pool renovation and design for a new look for your backyard

Gunite-Pool-Repair-and-Backyard-Design-in-Laurel-Hollow-NY4What is the purpose of pool coping?

When an in-ground swimming pool is constructed of concrete, it will need coping, which is a cap for the edge of the pool. Coping surrounds the shell of the swimming pool and protects it. This piece keeps any water and debris from going in behind the shell and safeguards it from damage or cracking.

Bullnose Walnut Travertine Pool Coping

Travertine is acknowledged as a wonderful material to use in many architectural and decor projects, both big and small. It has many benefits such as its timeless look, it feels amazing underfoot, is incredibly durable, easy to clean, and more!  If your pool area needs an upgrade, you can’t go past travertine. Using travertine pool coping will make a huge difference to the look and feel of your pool area.

Travertine has a naturally cooler touch than any other paving stone. As a result, travertine pool coping is a more practical choice when you and your family are enjoying the summer months outdoors. Typically, most people want to enjoy their pool and outdoor area more when the weather is warmer.

Imagine the unpleasant experience of trying to climb out of a pool and having to grip your hands onto the piping-hot pool coping tiles. Then quickly make your way on bare feet across what feels like hot coals on your bare feet. Ouch!

These unpleasant experiences will be drastically reduced if you install travertine tiles and pool coping. That’s why it makes sense to choose travertine pool coping over any other stone or paving material.

Gunite-Pool-Repair-and-Backyard-Design-in-Laurel-Hollow-NY1Porcelain Tiles – Slip-Resistant and Safe

Porcelain is a virtually nonporous material that is ideally suited to use on a wall as it keeps water ingress to a minimum. The nonporous nature of porcelain also helps prevent staining meaning the coping will keep its original colour and be low maintenance throughout its lifetime.  Porcelain tiles are an excellent choice for pools they provide a modern and stylish look. Porcelain tiles are watertight and low maintenance, making them a great option for all wet areas around pools, including decks and patios.

Even when exposed to water, porcelain tiles won’t become slippery or especially dangerous to walk on. This makes them invaluable as a pool decking material, especially if you’re concerned about kids running and slipping when enjoying the swimming pool this summer.

Marble Dusting Gunite Pool Repair

Marble Dusting is a smooth plaster finish that is applied to the gunite pool or spa. It’s a mixture of highly refined white cement and crushed marble. This material can be dyed into many colors or purchased in a specific color and aggregate pattern. While white, or anything in the gray spectrum including black is common, exposed aggregate finishes can provide a unique look to your pool. The marble dust is applied up to the water line followed by rows of tile of your choice. The Marble Dust and tile give an attractive finish to your Gunite Pool and Spa Scape.

Gunite-Pool-Repair-and-Backyard-Design-in-Laurel-Hollow-NY2Gunite Pool Maintenance

Gunite pools are known for their durability, longevity, and customizability. However, they also require regular maintenance to keep them looking and functioning at their best. Here are some tips for gunite pool maintenance:

  • Brush the pool walls and floor: Use a pool brush to scrub the walls and floor of your gunite pool regularly. This will help prevent the buildup of algae and other debris.
  • Skim the surface: Use a pool skimmer to remove leaves, insects, and other debris from the surface of the water. Doing this daily will help prevent the debris from sinking to the bottom of the pool.
  • Check the water chemistry: Test the water chemistry of your gunite pool regularly to ensure that the pH, alkalinity, and chlorine levels are balanced. Imbalanced water chemistry can lead to algae growth, staining, and other problems.
  • Shock the pool: Shocking the pool involves adding a large dose of chlorine to the water to kill bacteria, algae, and other contaminants. This should be done every week or two, or as needed.

Top 5 Benefits of a Gunite Swimming Pool | East Hampton NY

Top-5-Benefits-of-a-Gunite-Swimming-Pool-East-Hampton-NY3

When it comes to building a backyard pool here are the top 5 benefits of a Gunite swimming pool.  Homeowners have a multitude of options to choose from. One type of pool that has gained immense popularity over the years is the Gunite swimming pool. Known for its exceptional durability and extensive customization options.

Top 5 Benefits of a Gunite Swimming Pool

Gunite pools offer a host of benefits that make them an ideal choice for homeowners looking to create a luxurious and long-lasting oasis in their backyard. In this article, we will explore some of the key advantages of Gunite swimming pools.

Unmatched Durability of a Gunite Swimming Pool

One of the standout features of Gunite swimming pools is their exceptional durability. Unlike other pool construction methods, such as vinyl or fiberglass, Gunite pools are built to withstand the test of time. Their solid structure is created by spraying a mixture of cement, sand, and water over a framework of steel reinforcement. This meticulous process results in a pool that can withstand extreme weather conditions, ground movement, and the general wear and tear of regular use. Gunite pools have a lifespan of several decades, offering homeowners peace of mind and long-term enjoyment.

Top 5 Benefits of a Gunite Swimming Pool East Hampton NY1

Design Flexibility and Customization of Gunite

Gunite swimming pools are highly customizable.  This allows homeowners to create a pool that perfectly suits their preferences and complements their outdoor space. The versatility of Gunite allows for endless design possibilities.  From traditional geometric shapes to free-form designs that mimic natural bodies of water. With Gunite, homeowners can incorporate features like spas, waterfalls, rock formations, and intricate tile work.  This makes each pool unique and tailored to individual tastes. This level of customization ensures that your pool becomes a true reflection of your style and enhances the overall aesthetics of your property.

Unlimited Size and Shape Options

Gunite pools offer unparalleled flexibility when it comes to size and shape. Unlike pre-fabricated pools, which are limited in their dimensions, Gunite allows you to create a pool that perfectly fits your available space and meets your specific requirements. Whether you have a small backyard or a sprawling estate, Gunite pools can be designed to maximize the use of your space. With Gunite, the only limit is your imagination.

Longevity and Return on Investment

Investing in a Gunite swimming pool is not just about leisure and enjoyment; it is also an investment that adds value to your property. Gunite pools have a long lifespan and are considered a permanent fixture of your home, contributing to its overall value. Additionally, the customization options and durability of Gunite pools make them highly desirable to potential buyers, ensuring a higher return on investment compared to other types of pools. This means that not only will you enjoy the benefits of a Gunite pool during your ownership, but you will also reap the financial rewards if you decide to sell your property in the future.

Top-5-Benefits-of-a-Gunite-Swimming-Pool-East-Hampton-NY

Easy Maintenance and Repair on Gunite Pools

Contrary to popular belief, Gunite pools are relatively low maintenance. The smooth, non-porous surface of Gunite makes it resistant to algae growth and staining, reducing the need for frequent cleaning. Additionally, if any damage occurs, Gunite pools are easily repairable without the need for extensive renovations. Minor cracks or chips can be patched up quickly, ensuring that your pool remains in pristine condition for years to come. This ease of maintenance and repair further adds to the long-term value and enjoyment of owning a Gunite swimming pool.

Cons of Gunite Swimming Pools

Although gunite pools offer numerous benefits to homeowners, there are a few cons that come with Gunite pools.

Longer Construction Period – One of the main disadvantages of gunite pools is that they incorporate an extended construction period. You can spend two to three months trying to build a Gunite pool. This is because gunite requires at least 28 days to cure. Bear in mind that the curing period depends on your area’s climatic conditions. If you want to construct a pool within a short period, Gunite pools are not your best option. Instead, consider fiberglass pools since they are pre-manufactured before they get onsite. Therefore, installing a fiberglass pool takes approximately two to three weeks.

Higher than Average Maintenance Costs – Gunite swimming pools are expensive to maintain. You need to keep them clean and balance the water chemistry. Many homeowners opt to purchase an in-floor cleaning system or robotic pool cleaner; otherwise, these pools would attract large algae breeding grounds and stain them.

There is additional maintenance needed because the surface of the pool interacts with the water and can be a breeding ground for algae and require the use of other chemicals to clean and stabilize the quality of the water. Additionally, a plaster finish that is applied to concrete pools must be reapplied about every 10 to 12 years. Fiberglass pools never require resurfacing. Also, frost in colder climates can affect concrete pools, requiring acid washes that can eventually wear down the color of the pool.

Gunite Swiming Pool in East Hampton, NY Designed and Built by Gappsi

The backyard was designed and built by Gappsi in East Hampton NY. We built a 14 x 40 gunite swimming pool with a 6 x 9 spa including steps and a bench wrapped around the spa. The spa was designed using polished black granite for the coping. The borderline tiles are porcelain black tiles and the finish in the pool is black marble dust plaster.

The swimming pool is equipped with an auto cover. We installed a 2-inch thick G044 Limestone for the pool coping and the autocover box. The patio behind the deep end of the pool was extended with random flagstone and grass planted between the joints. The patio stones we used are the G044 French pattern also selected from the Gappsi Natural Stones Collection. We were restricted by the size of the patio and we had to comply with lot coverage. This is the latest backyard renovation designed and built by Gappsi in East Hampton, on Long Island NY.

Gunite swimming pools offer a range of benefits that make them a top choice for homeowners seeking a durable, customizable, and long-lasting pool. With their unmatched durability, design flexibility, and potential for customization, Gunite pools provide a luxurious and highly functional addition to any property. Whether you’re looking to create a relaxing oasis or a place for entertaining family and friends, the benefits of a Gunite swimming pool are undeniable. Invest in a Gunite pool, and you’ll enjoy years of endless fun, relaxation, and an enhanced outdoor living experience. So, why settle for anything less when you can have a Gunite swimming pool that combines durability, customization, and long-term value? Choose Gunite and transform your backyard into a haven of luxury and leisure.
