Tips for choosing a Barrie Pool Installation Construction Contractor

May 1, 2017
A lot of us really enjoy swimming or just lounging around the swimming pool. If you are planning on hiring a Pool Installation Contractor in Barrie, here are some things to keep in mind. Installing an in-ground pool is aesthetically very appealing and they come in a wider variety of shapes & sizes. As an experienced pool installation contractor in Barrie, we can help you with all the decisions.
Your in-ground pool can be designed for safe diving and designed to accommodate laps. However it is important to plan ahead and choose the right Barrie pool installation contractor since a concrete in-ground pool installation could take up to 12 weeks. There are other material choices though including vinyl and fiberglass; as your best choice for pool construction in Barrie, we will help you make the best decision for you. Another reason to choose us as your pool installation expert is that this may be the most complex addition you’ll make to your property. We will have to assess your land for construction compliance, access for construction equipment, and additions like fencing, patios, walkways, landscaping, and even retaining walls. As an experienced professional with pool construction in Barrie we will be able to guide you through all these details with no surprises. Getting stuck with an inexperienced installer could be very costly. Companies or individuals that promise cheap (too good to be true) prices often bury necessities such as steps and pumps in the fine print, and will surprise you with those additional costs. Also we encourage you to call our references – we have many happy Barrie pool installation customers.
We will help you choose the best location for your in-ground pool construction. Sometimes there is only one place where it’s easiest to dig, and some backyards have hidden rock formations under ground that can prove problematic. You’ll also want to consider the proximity of the pool to other structures or trees in your backyard. Having trees hanging over the pool can increase the need to clean the leaves and other droppings. Also a shaded area over your pool can also make for cooler swimming or increased costs with heating your pool. There are also safety concerns and it is a good idea to keep the pool within view of where you like to relax so you can still monitor those swimming in your pool.
All pools in Barrie have to be kept safe and require some barrier to stop children from wandering in unsupervised. By law your in-ground pool will require the installation of fencing to act as a protective barrier. We will help you with the many choices you have for fence installation. Your pool fencing can even include self-closing and self-latching doors. Other options are also available for your pool safety such as door or motion alarms to alert you when a child is in the pool area.
You’ll also want to choose a pool cover. Pool covers prevent debris from getting in, help prevent evaporation and help retain pool temperatures. There are several cover options – as your pool installation Barrie expert, we will help you choose among pool covers that that are child-resistant and ones that are designed to keep your pool protected during the winter. We’ll make sure you know the purpose of each before buying.
Owning a pool can be absolutely fantastic and can add so much fun, entertainment and even exercise to your life. Let Simcoe Contracting make sure your Barrie pool construction project is the best decision you ever make for your home and your family.
