Fiberglass Swimming Pool: Installed by Gappsi inc. Lawrence NY 11559

V (1)Hours of construction and design building led the Gappsi group to create a Thursday Goliath 16×37 fiberglass swimming pool with a 3/8 bluestone gravel base that was installed for the under layer of the pool shell for stabilization. Once the pool was adjusted and numerous factors were considered, the pool was then lifted and dropped in place. After installation, Gappsi associates placed solar tubes around the perimeter of the pool to increase support for the concrete slab of the patio base. This fiberglass swimming pool was installed by Gappsi in Lawrence NY 11559, located on the south shore of Nassau County Long Island. Due to the areas high water table the pool needed to be elevated, and many yards of fill were delivered to raise the grade of the property. We faced many challenges installing this fiberglass pool because of its size and weight. The delivery was the main obstacle because due to the size of this pool, 16×37, it was very costly to cross bridges and drive on highways. Due to the size of this magnificent pool we needed 2 police car escorts to the job site.
The patio pavers used for this job were the Melfi Limestone. This unique stone is an earthy, multi-toned masterpiece; shades of beige, green, brown. and gray bring natural tones to the design. The stones are strategically placed in a Vincenza pattern along with a 2 inch thick random coping for the pool edge. The Melfi Limestone, and many other stones, are exclusively available at Gappsi. The stones are a beautiful contrast to the sapphire blue liner inside the pool. Plus assorted flowers and trees bring in pops of color and interest to the backyard area.
To enhance the aesthetic of the Thursday Goliath fiberglass swimming pool a safety auto cover was installed. The sleek blue auto cover allows customers to easily protect the pool by simply turning a key. The Goliath, 16×37 is 3.8” to 6’8”deep which makes this fiberglass pool a non-diving pool, however, the pool can be used for a plethora of reasons. It’s Olympic inspired shape is perfect for a morning workout swim, play water activities/sports with the kids, and allows family and friends to lounge on the extended benches and steps that are molded in the pool shell by the manufacture.

Located in Kings Park Long Island,a blue collar coastal suburb of Smithtown this Split level Ranch or Splanch had many obstacles to overcome when trying to redesign the front entrance. The customer came to Gappsi for our design and expertise in the masonry and landscape forum. With keeping cost down and designing a multi-use entranceway from three sides of this slender sized property was the biggest challenge we had to undertake. After a few hours of designing and redesigning the customer and the team here at Gappsi design center nailed down the perfect combination to suit this homes updating project. While at the showroom the customer also had the chance to glance and browse Gappsi Signature Natural Stone selection and fell in love with our Amagansett granite paver. With design and material chosen, Gappsi’s masonry division expertly built and installed what you see here. A full two car driveway in a 90 degree herringbone pattern with soldier course border inlaid with a 45 degree herringbone walkway adds contrast and designates which area is which while still using the same medium of stone is the largest revitalization portion of this job. The main platform entrance from the driveway has two sets of steps on either side to access the main entrance of the home from either the walkway on the right as well as from the driveway. Leading up towards the main door another platform was built to meet the homes entrance, notice the absence of rails. To soften the large structure two columns and an eighteen inch planter wall with creeping ground covers and accent annuals as well as two side planter beds were added into the design bringing life and color to the project. These side planters have a dual purpose, by designing these planters the homeowner did not need to install hand rails due to height issues, which in turn saved them money. Using hanover wall system to compliment and add a vertical contrast to the natural stone paver the project blends two different materials seamlessly together with the existing home as the canvas. Curb appeal was achieve and the value of this home has been increase bringing joy not only to the current homeowners but to future homeowners as well with this timeless design and material choice.
