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. Although once the homeowners finish making all of the decisions it is entirely up to the pool construction  company to complete the project, many times homeowners believe they can go on vacation and not make a single decision when planning on constructing a pool in their backyard. 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. 

Pool Problems in Miami

There are specific traits to every geographical area for example we have Chicago; The wind city, Florida; The sunshine State and although we may enjoy of these peculiar traits other pose a threat when using your beautiful pool.

As far as Florida is concerned there are several things to keep in mind. For starters “The Sunshine State” does in fact receive a lot of sunshine and this is great for enjoying your pool, however, it can pose some serious health threats. Whenever you’re enjoying your pool during peak hours from 9am-4pm make sure to wear appropriate sun screen to prevent skin diseases such as cancer.

Another important aspect to keep in mind is the humidity. A pool can refresh you from the humidity, but who relives the pool from the humidity? It’s important to have proper maintenance done to your pool in order to avoid complications and strange diseases to you, your family, or even guests.

 Pools in South Florida can either be a blessing or a nightmare, make sure your pool doesn’t keep you up at night. Have proper maintenance done to it, use it safely, and always have a professional come in at the first sight of a problem.
