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.
