How to prepare for a pool remodel?
Find a trusted pool professional
Take your time, interview more than one pool contractor, unless you have one you already work with and trust, and seek out estimates for the project. Meet with the contractor, ask your questions, ask him for references from current clients.
Hiring a pool contractor whom you trust and one with a proven record is half of the battle in your pool remodeling project. Look for a pool contractor who clearly communicates with you through all steps of the process.
You will need to obtain building permits before any construction can begin. Your contractor knows what you need and will help with the completion and submission of the paperwork. All municipalities require building permits for construction and renovation. Any professional pool builder will know what you need to do for your specific area to apply for the building permit.
Share your vision
A swimming pool is more than just a place for swimming and frolicking, it is the focal point of the backyard landscape. Your pool is also a place of relaxation. After you’ve decided to remodel your swimming pool, you need to know whether you have to address any cracked or discolored tiles. Does the pool need aesthetic as well as mechanical upgrades? Will you add or upgrade water features?
Make certain your pool contractor understands the vision of what you want the finished project to be. Cut out photos of what you want the finished project to look like so you can more clearly show the contractor what your vision is. The more clearly you articulate your vision the better the outcome.
After you’ve put your budget together and have determined the scope of the project, there are pre-construction tasks such as having a survey of the site, if you’re expanding the pool’s footprint.
A swimming pool remodeling project can sometimes be as big of as undertaking as having a new pool constructed. Approach it with the same attention to detail and you are certain to have a finished project that you and your family love!
