Renovating an Apartment Building: Tips

I had always wanted to be an entrepreneur, so when I saw a local apartment building up for sale at a great price, I decided make the investment. I am a manager by day, so I thought I was ready to be a great landlord. After I had trouble attracting new tenants, I decided to try investing in a few upgrades to see if I could attract more tenants with the added features. I hired a local contractor to work on my first project, which was a fitness room. I remembered that I always looked for buildings with them when I rented apartments! I then had some work done on the grounds and in the apartments themselves. The building is completely full now, so I realized it was a good investment. I decided to start a blog to share my renovating and construction tips with anyone who needs them!

Four Custom Features To Change Your Pool During Renovations

Your old home may have a pool that is in need of repairs. Some of the repairs that you may want to do to your pool can include re-plastering, adding a new deck and maybe even a water feature and pool house for equipment, bathroom and a small shower. You may think that customizing these features means investing in a completely new pool, but with the right remodeling you can get all of these things. Here are four ways to change the look of your pool during restoration and re-plastering:

1. Using Darker Plastering For More Natural Colors

If you want your pool area to be more like a natural oasis, this is something that can be accomplished with re-plastering. You will want to have the plastering done in darker blue tones that help to give the water more of a natural color. This will work best with natural filtration systems that will not cause the plastering to fade over time.

2. Comfortable And Safe Decks With Composite Materials

You may also want to have your pool decks redone when remodeling your pool. If you want to make them safer, you may want to consider using composite rubber materials. These can be conventional decking materials that you would use on the decks on your home or they can be newer composite rubber paving systems. These will provide a comfortable slip-resistant surface around your pool.

3. Using Stone To Create Water Features And Additional Areas

If you do not have a water feature for your pool, adding one can be a good investment. This is a great way to keep water circulating, which can improve the quality of the water and reduce problems with things like insects. Using stone is a great way to add these features and blend them in with your pool and additional features. This is great if you want to add a spa or sitting area to your pool.

4. Affordable Pool House Designs For Equipment And Bathrooms

Many pools have the equipment hidden behind a wall of your home or in the corner. If you want to reduce noise, make your pool more attractive and protect equipment, an addition of a pool house may be something you want to consider. This can also be a great place to add a small bathroom and shower area to your pool. This can be done with small wood buildings that are affordable, or even a small stone enclosure that blends into your pool and water features.

These are some things that you can have done to completely change the look of your pool with a minimal investment. If you are ready to have you pool remodeled, contact a re-plastering contractor and ask them about incorporating some of these ideas into your project.
