Questions to Ask Before a Pool Remodel

Has your in-ground pool seen better days? If so, then it may be time to look into a pool remodel.

Before you sign off on a pool remodel, however, there are a few important questions worth asking.

3 Questions to Ask Before Signing Off on a Pool Remodel

How Will My Yard Be Protected?

Because a pool remodels will involve a fair amount of drilling and heavy machinery, it’s a good idea to find out how the pool remodeling company will protect your yard and any landscaping. Generally, a reputable company should take basic precautions, like covering your landscaping with tarps and minimizing the amount of large machinery driven over your lawn as much as possible.

How Long Will the Remodel Take?

Of course, you don’t want to miss out on prime pool season because of a remodel, so be sure to get in writing a completion date for the project. If your remodeling project will be an extensive one, you might also want to consider scheduling it during the “off season.” You may even be able to save some money on the project this way!

Will You Obtain Any Required Permits?

Depending on where you live, your city or even a neighborhood HOA may require special permits or permission for your pool remodel. This is something that any reputable remodeling company should handle for you, but it’s always a good idea to ask and be sure that it’s included in your contract.

These are just a few of the most important questions to ask when thinking about a pool remodeling project. For more information on transforming your existing pool, contact us today!
