Pool Designing

Before your backyard is illuminated with the reflection of the sky on the crystal clean water of your pool, there are a series of steps that must be completed. One of the firsts steps that must be completed before your pool is finalized includes designing it, and presenting the customer with a presentation of what their pool would look like once completed. Of course the presentation is subject to change based on the customers wants, laws and regulations, and construction necessities. However, the overall look of the pool stays the same. During the three dimensional presentation of the pool, the customer not only sees the pool but also their home and backyard with additional features such as a garden or pool adjacent furniture. Swimming pools add great value to your home, but also require a lot of time and energy during the construction and designing process. Depending on the pool, the designer may take days even weeks to have every small detail according to the customers request. The designer may also show the design to other members of their team in order to receive feedback and make appropriate changes.

Commercial Pool Renovation

          Residential apartment buildings are by law required to meet certain standards and codes specified by state and federal laws. Their structure, emergency precautions, and a number of other aspects of the building must be in perfect order when the inspector passes by. Another aspect of the building that must be in impeccable conditions and up to all of the recent code changes are the pools. There are only a selected number of tiles, and pavement that commercial pools may use. Their depth and shallowness are also regulated and controlled.

        Every year hundreds of changes and new codes are put in place for commercial buildings to abide by. An infraction of one of these laws could cost the management from hundreds to millions in fines. The lives of hundreds of residents are at risk, and the management company would be liable for any damages. The pool construction company with which the building is working with should be reliable enough to be trusted with informing the complex when their pool is in violation of a code or law. 

New Pool Construction in Miami

New pool construction in Miami requires a lot more than just hiring a pool construction company and letting them do all of the work. Inevitably, you as the home owner will have to put some effort into the way your dream pool will look. Homeowners are in charge of picking the style and form of their pool, the tiles, colors, and backyard accessories to complete their outdoors.

It is important for homeowners to have an active role int he construction of their new pool so as to make sure they are completely satisfied with the end result.

 

During the process of constructing a new pool there will be a lot of documents, inspections, digging, and working around your house. It is important the homeowner does not impede the proper work of the workers by throwing parties around the same area or cluttering the area with unnecessary items that will only be obstacles in the way of the pool contractors.  More than just slowing down the completion time of your own pool, using the space for other things may cost you an additional inspection if the inspector does not approve of what you are storing, or what’s in the way.

“Winterizing” Your Pool

Summer is gone and fall has begun, luckily down here in south Florida we get to enjoy summer climate through the majority of fall. However, during the winter there will be days when we dread getting up from our warm and comfy beds because we know a cold harsh tile floor awaits us. Winter means more than just not wanting to get up, most pools in south Florida aren’t equipped to be used during winter weather. This means that your pool must be properly closed off during those cold winter days. The best way to protect your pool from the elements of winter is to invest in an in-ground winter pool cover. These covers range drastically in price according to quality and brand, you can purchase one for as cheap as $29 up to $2,000 (the price also varies based pm the size of the pool.

Pool Contractor

It is very important to research any pool contractor with which you plan on completing a project with. Below you will find several points you should cover with the pool company of your choice. 

  • What is their area? Are they primarily a commercial pool construction company, or have they worked mostly on residential pools?
  • What is their specialty? For example, Rosmel Pools specializes in small access pool construction
  • Are they licensed? Without the proper licenses the city may not grant you the the permits required to complete your pool.
  • Are they insured? Doing business with a business that is not insured is risky business and also illegal. If something were to occur during any part of the construction phase to your home and the company did not have insurance you would probably have to pay the repairs on your own.
