The majority of the pools we remove are outside. However, we also specialize in indoor pool removals. Indoor pools present their own set of challenges. With this Barrington, IL pool removal, we removed both the pool and the surrounding structure.
Our clients recently moved into the house and had no intention of keeping the indoor pool. Mack Land, LLC worked with both the buying and selling realtors to facilitate the the pool removal process. We were able to start the permitting process while they were closing on the house, allowing us to start as soon as they moved in.
The indoor pool had been an addition to the house and was not consistent with the architecture. Unfortunately, some details of the structure were costly to maintain and increased the moisture levels in the main house. The roof of the structure had previously been damaged by hail. While it had been repaired, it was most likely going to sustain damage again in any strong storm. Most structures are not salvageable but this one was a prefab aluminum structure that could easily be re-purposed. In this case, the homeowner was able to resell the structure.
With this project, we went above and beyond code and removed all of the concrete both from the surrounding structure and the pool, and disposed it offsite at a recycling center. Some of the brick work was stockpiled for future use to repair where the enclosure was attached to the main house.
After importing backfill and compacting in place, we fine graded the area to match the existing lawn. The existing structure had landscape beds around the perimeter. We worked to reconfigure the existing planting beds that were to remain so that they flowed nicely and did not look as they were leftover The client opted to finish with grass seed and blanket.
