Vinyl Liner Pool Installation
Marble Coping For Vinyl Pools & Spas is a popular type of pool and spa surface. Vinyl Pools are custom-made to fit your specific pool area. Because they are pre-fabricated and installed relatively quickly, vinyl liner pools are usually less expensive to build and renovate than in-ground gunite pools with cement finishes. A typical vinyl liner replacement may take only a few hours with an experienced crew (not including water fill time), as opposed to days or weeks for a renovation and re-plaster.
Vinyl Liner Strengths And Weaknesses
Liners are widely available, more affordable to install and replace, and can be installed quickly. They have benefits especially in colder climates, due to the lack of winter issues like calcite crystals. Even if a vinyl liner is damaged and faded during the winter, its surface is still smooth and therefore not abrasive to swimmers’ feet. Another benefit is that patterns and colors do not drive the price of a liner. You can choose from many patterns and colors without large differences in cost, unlike cementitious surfaces which can vary widely in price.
Many would argue the biggest weakness of vinyl liner pools is their lack of customization. Concrete pools can be just about any shape and size, whereas liners are more limited in their shape and size. That all being said, technology continues to advance and we have been seeing more complex liner pools out there. Also, while you can get a plethora of patterns and colors, vinyl liners almost all are similar in feel and appearance…unlike a concrete pool which can have many textures and vibrant colors.
A metamorphic rock composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Marble can have beautiful pattern movement within the stone and comes in a wide variety of colors from white to salmon to gray, blue, green, and black.
Regardless of your chosen pool design, deciding which natural stone pavers to use for your pool surrounding will make a very powerful statement about your taste, status, and success. Some factors to consider include appearance, durability, non-slip finish, environmental factors like weather conditions, and finally, sealant.
A Raised Spa that is elevated above the pool surface. A raised spa can add a dramatic focal point to a poolscape. A raised spa can double as a water feature if it is designed to permit spa water to cascade into the pool. Depending on the type of installation, the spa may or may not share the main pool’s circulating equipment. Raised perimeter-overflow spas overflow on all sides, creating a unique gravity-defying effect.

How Much Does an Outdoor Kitchen Cost?
An outdoor kitchen will add value to any home, and increase the enjoyment for your family and guests. The cost will depend on factors, such as appliances chosen, materials, and size. It is important to also consider if the project requires electrical, plumbing, gas, or ventilation. Outdoor kitchens have risen in popularity partly due to their functionality. It is the perfect additional livable space in the home where you can cook, eat, entertain and relax.
Many times, homeowners hire a contractor to build their outdoor kitchen, because they offered the lowest price. But the lowest price isn’t always the best way to go. It is not necessary to break the bank, but it is important that whomever you choose to work on your home, knows what they are doing, and is willing to stand by their work.
Gappsi designed and installed this gorgeous backyard setting in Medford Suffolk County NY. The design of the backyard started with the installation of the 20 x 40 vinyl liner swimming pool with concrete walls. The pool was designed to incorporate a raised spa that spills into the pool. The 8 x 8 raised spa is veneered with Silver Travertine and Coping G038 24×24 marble pavers.
The entire patio was paved with G043 marble pavers selected from the Gappsi stone collection. The Gappsi Stone Collection offers beautiful color variations of beige, browns, and whites. In addition, a sundeck with two fountain bubblers was installed so they can be enjoyed while in the pool.
Outdoor Living By Gappsi
Included in the project surrounding the vinyl-lined pool Gappsi installed a very large patio. The outdoor living space featured an L-shaped cooking island using all Delta appliances including a gas burner grill, storage cabinets, a gas burner, sink, and a Summit Refrigerator.
