Boulder Colorado Pool Removal

With this Boulder Colorado Pool Removal project a repeating theme occurred. The customer made the decision to remove the pool without giving further thought about what to do with the reclaimed space. Having years of experience this does not phase us at all. The method of pool removal remains the same but it’s the finishing that’s left up for discussion and for which we have many options.

Fall is one the best times to remove your pool and have it filled in. This returns your backyard to it’s original condition allowing you to enjoy the winter experience hassle free. With many clients unsure of what they want to do we have developed a process to help ease what can often be a very emotional and mentally exhausting decision to make. Our process recommends removing the pool and starting with a clean slate. Then take at least two weeks or ideally the whole winter to experience the new space before planning what you do next.

Removing the pool in fall gives the client the time to experience the space during the winter when deciduous plants lose leaves and to consider where evergreen plants need to go to screen in wanted views.

Hardscape is a big investment. Your new patio just needs to be the perfect size and function the way you want it to. Not too big (then you paid too much for material you’re not using) and not too small (then it does not function). Take the time to think about how you want you use your patio, how many people to you want to accommodate, what elements you would like to incorporate (fire pit, outdoor kitchen etc.). What furniture and the space it needs to function properly? Then lastly start thinking about size and shape.

Fall is great if you have a clear plan of what you want to do next as there are great blow out deals on plant material. If you have not yet decided what you want to do then you can take the winter to experience the space. At the same time you can plan it out and start getting bids. This will allow you to hit the ground running next spring. Ideally you want to have all your work contracted by early March to be at the top of the list for a spring install and enjoy your new back yard all summer. Taking the winter time to plan and bid out project can lead to greater savings for the client by making sure they know what they want next and having time find and price out multiple contractors.

A swimming pool can be a source of endless enjoyment during its prime years, but as time goes by, it can also become a source of headaches and financial strain. If you find yourself with an old and dilapidated swimming pool that’s causing more problems than joy, you’re not alone. Many homeowners face the dilemma of whether to keep or remove an aging pool.

In this Aurora Colorado Pool Removal this was an old family home now vacant due to illness of the owner. It was time to sell the home but the pool was in a bad state of disrepair. Getting it up an running again was going to cost too much so the decision was made to have it removed.

The Justification for Pool Removal

1. Costly Repairs and Maintenance

As a swimming pool ages, it becomes increasingly susceptible to wear and tear. Routine maintenance, repairs, and chemical treatments can quickly add up, making the cost of keeping it in good condition a significant financial burden. By removing the pool, you can free yourself from ongoing expenses and redirect your funds to more worthwhile investments.

2. Safety Concerns

Older pools may not meet the safety standards and regulations in place today. This can pose a risk to your family and anyone who visits your property. Removing the pool eliminates these safety concerns, ensuring peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

3. Unused and Unattractive

If your pool has fallen into disuse and become an eyesore in your backyard, it’s time to reassess its value. Unused pools not only take up valuable space but can also detract from the overall aesthetics of your property. By removing the pool, you can reclaim your outdoor space and enhance your property’s curb appeal.

5. Environmental Benefits of Pool Removal

Swimming pool removal can be an environmentally responsible choice. By eliminating the need for pool chemicals and reducing water usage, you can lessen your environmental impact. Additionally, the space gained can be used for eco-friendly landscaping or even a small vegetable garden.

6. Increased Property Value after Aurora Colorado Pool Removal

While it may seem counterintuitive, removing a dilapidated pool can increase the value of your property. Many potential buyers may view an old pool as a liability rather than an asset. A well-landscaped, spacious yard, on the other hand, appeals to a broader range of buyers and can lead to a higher resale value.
