With summer right around the corner, there is no better time than now to build an inground pool into your backyard! Swimming pools are perfect on those hot summer days where the A/C just isn’t enough and you need refreshment. It’s also a great feature for when you have guests over, want to have a pool party with some buddies, or just sit and relax under the hot sun. It also adds an amazing amount of value to your home if you ever plan on selling down the road!
With all of these amazing features, you may be ready to look into how to build a pool into your yard, and this process starts with a pool excavation. If you’re wondering how to find the best contractor for your upcoming pool excavation, you’re in luck because we here at Mondo EX want to help. With our advice, you’ll be able to find the right person for the job in no time.
Do They Have the Right Licenses/Insurance?
One important thing to look at when hiring a company to do your pool excavation is whether or not their contractors have the right licenses and insurance. Accidents can happen when it comes to risky jobs like this, even with the most experienced and skilled team by your side. So, if these accidents do ever take place, you want to be sure that the workers are licensed, insured and bonded so you don’t end up with any unnecessary costs.
What Preparation Needs to Be Done?
Even though the company will be doing a heavy amount of the work, there are some things that you will need to do on your own or with the help of another service in order to properly clear the land and have it prepared for a pool excavation.
Make sure you confirm the shape of your desired pool with your contractor. This will ensure that they know where to put the stakes and string to highlight how the area is going to be excavated. Your contractor may also ask you to remove certain pieces of furniture or plants, structures etc. to ensure the land is completely clear before construction. In addition, you will want to be sure to ask them about the precautions they will take to ensure none of your water lines or sewer lines are damaged in the process.
How Long Will It Be?
On average, pool excavations will take less than a day. Even so, this amount of time entirely depends on factors such as the size of the pool being excavated, the weather, the conditions of the soil, etc. When it comes to specific situations and when you want a more accurate timeline, simply ask your contractor. With the amount of experience they will likely have, they will be able to come up with a pretty accurate measurement of how long your project will take. Always make sure to let your contractor know about the dimensions of your pool, the shape/depth of your pool as well as the type of ground material so they can provide you with the most accurate timeline possible.
How Will the Dirt Be Dealt With?
In order to dig a deep pit for a pool, the contractor(s) will have to remove piles upon piles of dirt, soil and rocks in and around your pool site. Not every ounce of this debris can be used for backfilling, so you will want to know what will happen with the rest of it and how it will be used/disposed of. The answer to this question will also commonly determine the final costs as well.
