Looking for a Daly City pool removal contractor to take out your old backyard pool? You've come to the right place. We've been doing pool removals in Daly City for years, and our experienced demolition team can handle your pool removal the right way. As the local Northern California pool demolition experts, we've created some handy tips for homeowners to help you make sure you are getting the right pool removal service.
Partial VS. Full Pool Removals
There are two types of California pool removal services. A partial pool removal breaks down the pool shell and then covers the old pool with dirt. It's cheaper than a full pool removal, which thoroughly removes all parts of the pool. As expert pool excavators in Daly City, we've seen plenty of homeowners regret choosing the partial removal in the long run. Since the pool wasn't wholly removed, it can affect the value of a home when it comes time to sell. Also, a lot of these partial removals create ground problems, which is why many cities don't allow them anymore.
Using a Contractor
Hiring a Daly City, California pool removal contractor should be the easiest part of getting your pool removed, but we know that many homeowners are nervous about contractors. This is why we take the time to address all homeowner concerns and issues during our initial consultation. We know all the local laws regarding Daly City pool excavations, and we want to make sure you know them too before we start work. Our professional contractor will explain how they are going to drain, break, and remove the pool. After removal, the contractor will then cover how our company completes fill-ins using only fresh dirt and high quality materials. Only hire Daly City pool demolition contractors who know what they are talking about, and never work with an inexperienced one.
Getting a Soils Engineer
We recommend that all Daly City pool excavations should be filled in under the supervision of a soils engineer. Of course, we have complete trust that our work is done to satisfaction, but only the soils engineer can write a letter to the city stating that the pool removal was done correctly. This gives you, the homeowner, proof that the pool was properly removed if you should ever need it when it comes time to sell your house. If your contractor is trying to talk you out of hiring a soil engineer, it may be because they don't have a lot of confidence in their work.
"I don't know why we kept heating up our pool after the kids left. We kept it swimmable for four summers in a row, but nobody used it. Getting rid of that thing was one of the smartest ideas we ever had."
