Fortunately, many luxury pool builders who focus on new construction also do amazing renovations. The following pool builders and industry experts share their insight on pool remod- els, including details about some of their best remodeling projects, popular features, and planning tips so you'll know what to expect as you dive into your pool makeover. POOL RENOVATION PROJECTS Clint Fore, vice president of Aqua Blue Pools, Charleston, South Carolina, designed a smaller pool to increase the backyard living space. "We were able to transform the existing footprint of the pool by demolishing and removing the old pool, spa, and deck area and replacing it with a more functional, modern design that fit the homeowners' needs," says Fore.

"We excavated the original pool and built the new one within that existing envelope but at about half the size." Cline and Fore were able to achieve "an overall balanced composition of pool and terrace space that works better for [the homeowners'] living and entertaining preferences," says Cline.
