Pool Building Expectations
Building times vary based on the scope of your project, your contractor and things that are out of everyone’s control. But it is always a good time to build a swimming pool. Keep in mind that Florida’s rainy season and holidays can cause delays.
One day of rain can delay a week plus. Even if the forecast predicts rain, it can still affect progress.
Permits & Inspections
Permits will be pulled by your contractor and inspections scheduled as necessary. However, a contractor cannot guarantee they can get an inspector to come out the moment they have completed a portion of the project that requires an inspection.
One major question to ask yourself before a pool project even begins is do you have the space? Accessibility is a huge factor in pool construction so make sure you talk with you contractor about any spatial issues before work begins.
Change Orders & Materials
Any time you change what you want for the project, including materials and finishes, the project will be delayed and additional costs may be incurred.
Production expectations should be based on weekly progress, not daily progress.
When digging there are problems that could arise including difficulty detecting the waterline, and obstruction by old sewer lines, septics, etc. – Speak with your contractor to understand what possible delays and costs could be incurred if an issue arises.
