Building a pool often seems like a great do-it-yourself project. Many people think building a pool themselves will reduce costs, ensure all the features they want are included, and enhance everyone’s personal connection to the project. Sometimes these things are true. However, building a pool without outside help often leads to frustration and time-consuming side projects. In contrast, hiring a pool contractor has several benefits.
Knowledge of Permits
Building a pool necessitates obtaining several permits. Permit requirements vary not only from state to state, but also from community to community. For example, some permits are only for above-ground or in-ground pools. Others cover only specific pool types and may not include extra features like a spa or Jacuzzi. Pool contractors are trained in negotiating the permit process. They can assist homeowners in deciding what type of permit will be most cost-effective and easiest to obtain. Pool contractors can also help decipher ambiguous permit language.
Quick, Efficient Work
Most of the time, prospective pool owners begin their projects while still unsure of what type of pool they really want. Owners may invest in pool materials that aren’t conducive to their homes or available space. They are also often unaware of the many available features of residential pools. As a result, they decide to add or take away features midstream, creating a waste of materials and equipment.
These setbacks lengthen building time unnecessarily. In contrast, a pool contractor will apprise owners of all available features before the project begins. He or she will also have experience building several different pool types, ensuring the pool is built as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Available to Address Concerns
Prospective pool owners, including experienced ones, often encounter safety and other concerns during the building process. For example, an owner may not know his or her state’s specifications for pool alarms and barriers. Pool contractors demonstrate knowledge of safety concerns before working in the field by passing a certification test. In addition, an on-site contractor can answer questions as they arise; as such, owners need not rely on secondhand information when working with a pool professional.
