Gunite To Vinyl Conversion on Long Island

Gunite To Vinyl Conversion on Long IslandThis Gunite swimming pool was built in 1960 and it lasted for about 60 years, in the last 4 years for some strange reason the pool shel started developing some cracks and got worse every year to the point that the pool totally cracked in half and started licking badly to the point of not being repareble. The cost of replacing this gunite swimming pool would have been tremendous and the clients had no budget for that. Not only the cost of redoing the pool but also the cost of removing the old pool and all the damage that would have accrued to the yard and the landscaping , irrigation fence and the entire patio would have needed to be replaced. We proposed to remodel the pool and reshape the inside to accommodate a custom vinyl liner, we added a sundeck with 12 inches of water and reshape the pool deep end to make it more with straight ankles instead of a bowl shape that it’s usually a gunite. This gunite swimming pool conversion came out very nice. We used a liner with a pattern of a terrazzo looking finish that makes the pool look like it’s a gunite pool with no border at the top. When doing a Gunite To Vinyl Conversion it’s expected that the liner might show some imperfections or some minor wrincles, the clients has to understand that a vinyl pool construction is built with angles a gunite pool is more rounded shaped inside, and the liners are a little more difficult to be measured.

Cleaning and Sealing Paving Stones on Long Island NY

Cleaning and Sealing Paving Stones on Long Island NYWe have started our 2020 cleaning and sealing season rejuvenating the Gappsi showroom parking lot in Smithtown NY located in Suffolk County on Long Island. We are using hot water on low pressure and surface cleaner to remove dirt and residue of oil and other debris collected in the crevices of the pavers surface. We are also using a rotary wand to loosen the dirt collected in between the joints of the pavers. This is a large parking lot built with Nicolock pavers, and the colors of the paving stones are still very nice even after 15 years of being exposed to the elements and vehicular traffic. Nicolock manufactures high-quality concrete products that withstand the test of time. But as any other concrete products, concrete is corrosive and it weathers when exposed to the elements like the Sun’s heat, the rain and snow, and also to the calcium chloride and ice melters used during freezing times. After completing the cleaning of the entire paver parking lot, we filled the pavers joints with haze-free polymeric sand and vibrated it with a mechanical plate compactors to allow the sand to settle in and completely fill the joints. We spray water on the pavers to allow the sand to get wet, letting the water saturate the sand all the way through the bottom of the joint, and also wash off the pavers surface.

The polymeric sand comes in a few different colors, but most commonly used is beige or gray. It really doesn’t matter what color you use because over time it weathers and it will eventually turn into a brownish-gray color. The polymeric sand is a combination of medium-crushed natural sand, that is combined with color and a polymer component. It is activated when in contact with water to make it glue and eventually harden. This makes better for the pavers’ stability, makes it harder for ants to dig and nest in between the paver joints, and also makes it harder for weeds to grow through.

The next process is the installation of the sealer. We use high-quality urethane-water based sealers, which are environmentally safe and won’t harm plants, pets, or humans. It penetrates the surface of the pavers and creates a coating to protect the pavers from the elements. It also brings out and deepens the colors. Our sealer won’t yellow, and it will create a consistent  tone on the pavers during wet and or dry circumstances. We allow the sealer to cure for at least 3 days before driving on it, and depending on the temperature, it could be long for the sealer to totally cure.

We provide Pressure washing and re-sanding & sealing services in the following areas of Eastern Long-Island, Western Long-Island, North-Shore Long-Island, South-Shore Long-Island, Suffolk County, and Nassau County: Glen Cove, Hempstead, North Hempstead, Oyster Bay, Babylon, Huntington, Islip, Smithtown, Brookhaven, Southampton, Riverhead, East Hampton, Southold, Old Brookville, Old Westbury, Mill Neck, Nissequogue, Lloyd Harbor, Muttontown, Cold Spring Harbor, and East Norwich.
