While Sunrise Pool Renovations is a relatively new name to the Spring area, the company has been serving Greater Houston-area homeowners for more than 40 years.

According to Remodel Manager Karl Steinbacher, Sunrise Pool Renovations operated as Texsun Pools for 40 years until the brand was acquired by Leslie's in July 2022. Texsun Pools' remodel division was retained and rebranded as Sunrise Pool Renovations.

“We spent 40 years building relationships in the Greater Houston area with Spring being our original headquarters,” Steinbacher said. “It just made sense to rebrand in the same area.”

As part of Community Impact's annual Home Improvement Guide, we spoke with Steinbacher to learn more about the pool remodeling process. This interview has been edited for length and clarity.

Why would you encourage a homeowner to consider renovating their pool?

The backyard is a gathering place for families and an area of enjoyment. A renovated pool/spa will bring a fresh, modern look to your oasis and bring back the original luster.

How long does the typical pool renovation process take, and what does that process entail?

A pool renovation can take as little as five to seven days for a simple replaster or tile project. A coping, replaster and tile job typically takes seven to 10 days. Larger projects can take 30-45 days, depending on the scope of the project. All work is supervised by our remodel specialists.

What are the pros and cons of freshwater vs. saltwater pools? Is there one you’d recommend to clients over the other?

Our recommendation is a saltwater system as these are easier to operate for the homeowner and generally lower maintenance. Saltwater systems have better water quality, which feels softer on your skin. Chlorine pools have a steeper learning curve when it comes to water chemistry. The homeowner is required to store toxic chemicals in and around their home, and these toxic chemicals can damage patio furniture or household items in the garage.

What price point do pool renovations typically start at through your company?

A typical pool renovation will run between $6,000 and $18,000, depending on surface choices and scope of work.
