Tackling a major project like a major pool renovation or this one we recently did where we added a water feature? Here’s something to think about: Contractors have peak “busy” times and then “not so busy” times. They often get hit in the spring with commercial projects that must be completed by Memorial Day, making spring a risky time for you to start your pool project and hope to have it completed by summer. Think about getting your project completed while your pool won’t be in use. That’s right… from Labor Day to St. Patty’s Day.
In other words, beat the crowds by scheduling your pool contractor for fall or winter. The completion date can be scheduled for late spring because the majority of the work will have been completed months before. In the temperate Northwest, we can often work on cold winter days, too. And when the weather warms up in the spring, we just have to surface the pool, fill it and, voila! You’re ready for the swim season.
Another great reason to consider fall or winter is the noise and dust factor. Keeping your windows shut helps keep your life a little more peaceful while the renovation is going on, but who wants to shut their windows in July or August?
Finally, an off-season construction period generally better accommodates your schedule because won’t be fighting for space on an already super-busy summer calendar.
So as you are enjoying your pool this summer, make that list of renovations you would like to add for next year and schedule us for the fall.
As always, please call with any questions.
