Important Considerations for Swimming Pool Removal in Maryland & Virginia
Every Single Detail of Your Swimming Pool Removal Project in Potomac, Bethesda, Rockville, & Frederick, MD Really Matters
As your swimming pool removal or demolition project takes place, you may find that the so-called “little details” are not so little after all. In fact, every single detail of your project truly matters if you want assurance that your swimming pool removal was performed correctly. There is more to pool removal than busting up concrete and dumping soil in a big cavity. And most importantly it’s who you hire to remove your pool that makes the difference.
I often tell prospective clients “swimming pool removal is as major of a project as it was when the pool was built”. In all reality, I feel that removing a swimming pool is even more intense than building a new pool. Selecting an experienced, competent, knowledgeable contractor can help immensely with ensuring the pool removal project goes smoothly from start to finish. And to go one step further, I have found that all of my clients appreciate that I the owner of the pool removal company was onsite the entire time as the project was performed. Owner operators tend to have a higher sense of awareness for what is going on during the course of the job. If and when something unexpected arises, it seems that the issue is detected and recognized by the owner operator sooner than when a crew is working without owner supervision.
Knowledge is Our Best Tool
When working with an existing swimming pool, there are usually numerous site variables that must be recognized and observed both before the pool demolition project begins as well as during the course of the project. We recently removed a vinyl lined swimming pool in Frederick County Maryland. It was a routine pool removal job for us, everything was typical and straight forward. The pool had a natural stone retaining wall next to it that was to remain intact. As we started breaking up the concrete apron around the pool, I discovered that there would be no structural support for the stone wall after removal of the concrete decking. Potential problem was detected and recognized. I knew that if we continued without addressing the issue, the structural integrity of the retaining wall would be compromised in months to come. So I decided it would be best to saw cut the concrete and leave a portion of the concrete in place up against the wall to act as a retainment system for the retaining wall, to help prevent the wall from sliding down the hill. I determined that in the end the concrete retainment would not be visible because we would backfill over the concrete with a heavy lift of soil. I feel certain that had this particular pool demolition been performed by a pool removal company without a knowledgeable owner on site – the issue would never have been recognized and contended with.
