Gunite-Pool-Renovation-And-CopingMarble Pavers Pool Copings In Brookville NY

This is a gunite renovation completed on Long Island in Brookville NY. Gappsi installed new glass tiles in the waterline to freshen up the look of the pool.

Waterfalls, water walls, fountains, jets, bubblers, and spillovers give your pool a focal point, and they create an inspirational setting. A great pool design is often realized by the water within; its appearance, reflections, and how it refracts light and color. By adding a vertical element of moving water, the design can spring to life and almost become a work of art. There are many types of water features to choose from.  Simply put, today’s pool builders create customized features that move water in astonishing ways.

For our customer in Nassau County, we built a wall for the water feature to include sheer descends and on each end, we added spillover bowls.  Along the side of the pool we installed 6 Laminars; 3 on each side.

Sheer-descent waterfalls

Sheer-descent waterfalls, also called sheetfalls, are more suited for modern and geometric pools. The water flows through a thin spillway creating a sleek elegant look as it descends into the water. Sheetfalls are often installed along a raised wall on one side of the pool. The wall can be finished in glass tile for a stunning effect or stacked stone for a more natural look.

Laminar Fountains

Laminar fountains are a type of deck jet that produces a bubble-free arc of water.  This water feature is more common on modern pools and often lit by colorful LED lights.   This water feature look is both stunning and exciting. Designers should pay attention to windy areas because too much wind may ruin the effect on the laminar fountains. Laminar fountains are more expensive than standard deck jets.

Gunite-Pool-Renovation-And-Coping2Gappsi Stone Collection | Marble G043

In general construction terminology, coping refers to masonry material that is used to cap the top of a wall. Most walls have some type of coping, and the kind that adorns those on gunite pools features specific elements.

Coping is the material—usually natural stone or various forms of concrete—mounted over the top of the pool shell’s “bond beam” (the upper portion of the wall). This is where the pool structure meets the surrounding deck

For the coping in the patio, we used marble G043 selected from the Gappsi Stone Collection. The benches and steps in the pool were outlined with glass tiles that were used in the pool for the waterline. For the wall water feature, we used very unique marble slabs to elevate the look and make it a dramatic focal point of the pool and backyard. The patterns in the stones add to the natural beauty of the backyard through the natural patterns in the stones.

  • volleyball
  • pickleball
  • badminton
  • short court tennis | tennis practice

Tennis Court Construction on Long Island

If you are going to proceed with a tennis court construction project, make sure that you are receiving the court of your dreams with Gappsi Sports Game Courts.

Tennis-Court-Construction-on-Long-Island2How Much Room Do You Need For A Tennis Court?

If you want to add a tennis court to your property, make sure you have enough room for the tennis court construction. We have built tennis courts in locations where the available space was slightly smaller than the normal regulation-size tennis court. A regulation doubles-size tennis court takes a minimum of 60′ by 120′. The property’s offset requirements need to be considered when designing and choosing the location of the sports game court.  The property lines and town requirements are important to note because the distance from your neighbor’s property line is governed by zoning laws and regulations adopted by homeowners associations or town / village laws.

Orientation is ideal in a north to south direction to account for the sunrise in the morning and set in the late afternoon
Outdoor courts need a 1% slope to permit proper court drainage. It is imperative to consider the direction and ease in which water flows over, under, and around your court. Depending on the ease of flow, your court may require additional drain installation to facilitate the drainage process

At Gappsi our designers will do a court consult with you on your visions and specifications for your court and build a court for optimum performance durability, and aesthetics. Whether you desire indoor or outdoor tennis sports game courts, the construction specialists at Gappsi will seamlessly implement the design to fit perfectly with your property for endless family fun for years to come.  The results are a personalized custom solution that meets your family or facility’s specific needs.

Gappsi Design Team built a brand new sports game court; a combination of basketball and tennis in Smithtown NY. Nicolock paving stones size 6×9 in the color names Granite City bordered the Tennis & Basketball Sports Game Court.  We used 2 inches of asphalt over an oversized recycled concrete base.  In order to make this court able to play two different sports.  Gappsi first painted the white lines on the court for tennis and then we painted the yellow lines for basketball.

We built a retaining wall and faced it with eldorado cultured stones. The court was primed with black asphalt paint on three sides of the court, then Gappsi installed an out-of-bounce netting that is used for both tennis and basketball court games.

Gappsi designed and built a freeform vinyl pool with sundeck using concrete walls. This backyard was designed and installed for a residence in Holbrook NY.  A sheer descent waterfall was created using a masonry structure and two columns on each end along with two Pentair water balls. The pool is 45 inches to 60 inches in the deep end. 

Sundecks | Tanning Ledges | Tanning Shelf

The pool features a sundeck with an umbrella and two lounge chairs. If you are building a new pool at home, we highly recommend a sun deck! A sun deck can be designed as an oversized step or two, or you can have it as an independent addition to the side of the pool. The sun deck is a great spot for kids to play or for you to lie under and relax. You can even install a bubbling fountain on the sun decks.

Sun decks are also referred to as ‘tanning shelf’, ‘tanning ledge’, or the ‘shallow section where adults and kids can relax and relieve their stress. Along with being useful, sun decks also have the potential to give your pool a stunning appearance. The highly creative team of experts at Gappsi Pools can custom design a sun deck for your pool according to your preferences.

For the patio and coping on your Free Form Vinyl Pool With Sundeck, we installed G043 marble pavers selected from the Gappsi Stone Collection. The wall for the water features was veneered with silver travertine split-faced and tumbled. The design and feel of the backyard display beautiful color variations. The patio was sealed with a color enhancer stone sealer too.

Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island

Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island

Travertine Patios And Pools On Long IslandGappsi designed and completed the landscaping and Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island recently in a home located in Yaphank, NY.  Gappsi installed a freeform vinyl pool with a gunite spa spilling into the pool. Three structures were built including a gazebo, a pavilion, and a pergola; since the property is surrounded by woods populated by deer we decided to screen the gazebo for bugs also.

Backyard Gunite Spa with G035 Travertine Pavers

The home’s backyard was built on two levels so Gappsi utilized natural stone borders to retain the hearth and create a more natural look as well. The freeform vinyl pool is 18 x36, with the deepest part of the pool only 5 1/2 feet. There is a gradual slope on the bottom with the walls being straight down. The stairs that were installed are in the shallow area and we added 3 built-in stools in the pool to sit and relax poolside.

The spa that was added is a gunite spa finished with super blue diamond brights. This pavilion was built to add a shaded area while relaxing near the pool with a pergola for a lounge chair. The patio was paved with G035 travertine selected from the Gappsi stone collection and the veneer on the spa is also G035 travertine. The entire backyard has a very beautiful setting and layout.  The homeowners will enjoy the backyard for many many years to come along with all the family members.

Why Consider a Travertine Pool Deck?

One of the best reasons to consider these pavers is purely aesthetic. They provide a unique look that, when compared with other pavers, makes your patio or pool deck stand out amongst others in your neighborhood! An essential part of buying a pool is thinking about the best pool deck for your family. Travertine tile pool patios are increasingly popular because they are slip, heat, and mold resistant.  Travertine is a natural form of sedimentary limestone. It develops around natural spring mineral deposits, leading to distinctive swirls throughout the limestone. Due to the travertine tiles’ layered, mottled texture and beauty, the ancient Romans favored it as a building material.

Travertine-Patios-And-Pools-On-Long-Island3

Travertine pavers are ideal because they stay cool to the touch; Perfect for Barefoot-in!.

Simply by designing the yard with travertine pool pavers the customer increased the safety of their pool area by providing a stable, slip-resistant surface. The porous stones are naturally rough and even more so when they are wet making the surface slip-resistant.

Use Travertine Paving Stones in the following places:

  • pool decks
  • patios
  • decorative walls
  • stairs
  • fireplaces
  • driveway

Benefits of Travertine Patios And Pools On Long Island

Travertine is eco-friendly
All travertine stones are eco-friendly as they adopt an environment-friendly manufacturing process as opposed to marble. In addition, this stone is super low maintenance; they stay intact much longer, thus avoiding the need to replace them regularly.

Extremely durable
Due to Travertiens’s ability to withstand heat and extreme temperatures, travertine pool pavers are known to be extremely durable, thus making them ideal for all outdoor projects.  For example driveways, walkways, patios, and pools; enjoy your barbeques and parties.

Water Absorbency
Concrete pavers do absorb some water where tiles do not, and neither does flagstone. Since water is constantly present around a swimming pool, especially if it is heavily used by children choosing travertine pavers is smart because it absorbs more water than other paving materials.

Non-Fading
Better paving materials today are fade resistant, but in the face of the sun, over the years even pavers do lose some color. Travertine pool decks are natural stones whose color is permanent versus dyes that are long-lasting or fade-resistant.

No Efflorescence
What is that? Efflorescence is a powdery white deposit that’s commonly seen on concrete surfaces and requires cleaning to remove it.

Travertine-Patios-And-Pools-On-Long-Island2

While this isn’t part of our list above of reasons for suggesting travertine for patios and pools the fact is that it is hugely popular. This isn’t a fad or trend; it’s been in big demand for patios and pool decks for several years now, and instead of showing signs of losing favor as a trend does, the requests for travertine paving in the backyard continue to grow.

Are You Ready To Level Up Your Yard?

When looking to remodel your pool deck, having a selection of colors and sizes to choose from makes the process all the more enjoyable. At Gappsi you can select from an array of travertine deck pavers’ colors, sizes, designs, and patterns. No matter your taste, finding the right paver for your style is simple!

Work With a Contractor For Maintaining Your Travertine Pool Deck

Although travertine tiles are water-resistant, they may gradually appear stained. Further, if your travertine pool deck is close to loose soil, dirt can become trapped in the natural pores.

Fortunately, you can easily prevent this by sealing your deck every three to five years. Although you’re not required to seal your deck, you’ll be grateful that you did so a few years down the road.  Your pool contractor can replace damaged tiles or may recommend a cleaning and sealing of your pool’s patio.

If you clean your travertine tiles on a regular basis, you shouldn’t need much help from a contractor to repair or replace them.

Flamed Granite Pavers For Driveways

Flamed Granite Pavers For Driveways

Flamed Granite pavers driveway

Why should you use Granite Pavers when paving your driveway?

Granite is a very common type of rock, flamed granite is another hard-wearing granite paver you can use. The flamed finish provides that extra grip surface. The flames granite is very dense because it has been torched with a flame to cause an exfoliated finish, commonly known as a “Flamed” finish.  The flamed finish provides the stone with a high grip surface, hence its popularity for domestic and commercial jobs.

Gappsi’s Flamed Granite Pavers are widely used in the home, on patios, decks, and around commercial properties. Granite has been used in construction for tens of thousands of years now. It is a popular stone also due to its very tough and durable nature along with an abundant stone.  Most granite deposits are massive making the cost lower compared to some of the other types of stone used in construction. Granite is quite beautiful and is often preferred in areas where style is the primary concern as opposed to the functionality of the area the stone is used in.

What is the texture & color of granite?

Granite has a coarse to medium texture and can come in a wide range of colors including shades of pink and grey. The color depends entirely on the chemistry and different minerals making up the stone. Generally, different areas will have stones of a slightly different shade and a common feature is the different colors within any slab of stone. The overall hue will usually range from gray to pink, but within are shades of both pink and gray are tan, black, and white as well as a clear or shiny crystal.

Granite Pavers Used In Construction

Most projects are completed and installed over a recycled concrete base (RCA) then the flamed granite pavers are installed over one inch of sand with Surebond polymeric sand to fill the joints between the pavers. Additionally, gray granite Belgian blocks are used to retain the earth next to driveway borders.

We created a compass star aligned with the door, to highlight the entrance to the house. It’s a circular driveway with a separate driveway for the garage doors. The color of the pavers matches the roof tiles of the house, a combination of beige maroon rust and the blue limestone for the aprons of all the entrances of the driveway. The installation of the driveway started with the excavation of the soil and the installation of the RCA base.

Flamed Granite Pavers Driveway

The driveway in the pictures above was constructed using a 10-inch RCA base, and granite:

  • The pavers were installed on one inch of fine sand
  • Paving stone sizes were 6”x 9” with a flamed and tumbled texture finish.
  • The flamed granite pavers are 1-1/4” thick
  • Flamed granite pavers are a great choice because they can be used for pedestrian and vehicular trafficked areas.
  • The joints in between the pavers were filled with polymeric sand, then compacted with a mechanical vibratory plate and sealed.

To learn more about Gappsi products, please contact us at 631-543-1177 or visit our showroom.

That is not to say there are not a number of advantages though:
1. Granite is durable, it is a very hard stone and will last for years with little or no wear. In fact, many who carve monuments have begun switching from marble to granite due to increased acid rain, which over years will degrade the marble more so than granite.
2. Granite is beautiful because it comes in a wide range of shades, plus polished granite can be a truly stylish addition to nearly any home or building.
3. Granite compared to other stones is more affordable due to its abundance.

Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031

BLACK LIMESTONE FLAMED & TUMBLED G031Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031Why should you use Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 when paving your driveway?

Are you are looking for a classy look for your driveway? Gappsi’s offers a Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 paver that we recommend will create a WOW driveway that will stand out from your neighbors.  This paver is a sedimentary rock composed mainly of calcium carbonate, they are a highly versatile natural stone that is best suited and stable for your driveway application.

Driveways are great places for showing off your personality.  When choosing your pavers ensure they can withstand the high pressure of the vehicle and any weather-related problems that may occur in your area.

The Perfect Driveway WOW Choice Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031

Black Limestone driveway pavers are a perfect choice because they have great beauty, more durability, and less corrosion. Their rough and rugged texture makes them non-slip and water-resistant as well. The different lithotypes are quite similar: they are mudstone composed mainly of calcite and have the same fabric, characterized by the effect of the packing.  Black limestone paving is a very popular limestone that is dark charcoal greyish black in colour to achieve a contemporary looking patio with straight sawn edges to add the wow factor.

What does the Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 natural texture feel like?

In terms of texture, limestone will give you a smoother finish with fewer ridges.  It offers a more even finish perfect for driveways as well as many indoor projects too. If you are looking for a more contemporary finish then sandstone with a sawn finish would be best; keep in mind there are certain types with a grittier finish that can be more slip-resistant.

What is Limestone Made of?

The surface of Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 paving stone apart from the occasional riven is very flat and uniform; this combined with the consistent black color makes it suitable for contemporary gardens and landscapes. The black limestone is extremely dense, hence making the products strong and durable. This natural limestone is very tough and slip-resistant plus has great tolerance in freezing and thawing conditions; which is ideal for commercial sites.

Limestone is mainly composed of calcium carbonate, which is a type of mineral called calcite. The reason most limestones are black is due to the calcite crystals being clear and the origin of black limestone is in the marine sediments where sunlight is radiated. Due to the high concentration of organic matter everywhere, it retains a black color.

Black limestones are usually formed in a deposit environment with limited circulation and high organic matter such as a lagoon. This results in organic feeding, limiting the presence of decaying organisms, and reducing anaerobic conditions that are similar to the back swamp environment in classic settings.

Black Limestone Flamed & Tumbled G031 vs. other Limestones?

The mineral composition of limestone and black limestone is no different from each other. The black limestone in appearance is due to its high organic matter content which is the only difference.  Most of the black limestone contains fossils, which give it an attractive appearance perfectly suited for flooring, tiling, and paving.

When choosing the perfect limestone for your home or business don’t look for features in the limestones, just find the color you like and keep it simple.  Depending on your location in the world your environment and outdoor life will be different. If you live in a place where there is a road next to your house or there is a highway then black limestone paving may be better for you.

Are You Feeling The Heat?

Many of us are feeling the heat in our backyards right now, with heat waves making gardens very hot in parts of the world.  One of the most undesirable effects of hot weather is paving that is just too hot to even stand on, scrapping any patio ideas that involve walking barefoot. To help reduce the heat choose light-colored stone. As a general rule, no matter what paving materials you choose, go for a light color as it reflects rather than absorbs heat.

Choosing your pavers carefully will help you avoid getting your feet scorched after getting out of the pool. Among the best paving materials for reducing heat are limestone and sandstone.
