Happy Customer gives us a ***** star rating
We bought our home and the existing pool was on its last leg. It needed new coping, tiles were missing and there were stains forming at the bottom due to the rebar working its way through. The pool was 18,000 gallons & was 18×30. Instead of spending 15k to remodel, we paid roughly half that cost to fill it in. We hired AW to fill in our pool in. Due to his busy schedule, we waited a month for the work to begin. Reese and Bruce explained the whole process in detail. I only had one other bid from a concrete guy that was referred to me by a friend which he ended up flaking on me so I hired Arwood Waste.
Swimming Pool Removal Facts for Orange Park, FL
Basic procedure for a complete inground swimming pool removal
- To completely demolish an in-ground swimming pool, the demolition contractor first starts by prepping the area and demolishing all of the concrete and reinforced steel around the pool.
- Next, the gaunite or fibre is removed and the pool is back filled with sand.
- The final step involves filling dirt into the pool opening and compressing it so that the sand is compact and ready to go for future construction and/or seeding.
What’s the cost of removing a swimming pool?
The cost of a swimming pool removal is directly related to your geographic location, size of the pool, type of pool (inground/above ground), type of demolition (complete or partial) and overall complexity of the project. Because there are so many factors, demolition costs can range anywhere from $5000 to $12,000. At Arwood Waste, we work with demolition contractors that offer free estimates; this is the best way to get an accurate idea of costs associated with your swimming pool removal.
Another pricing factor to consider would be whether or not your city requires any special permits for demolition work. Some cities have special requirements on the hauling of debris, what pool removal procedure can be used, and what type of sand can be used for back filling. Your demolition contractor will usually handle the permitting process and often include these costs in your estimate.
How to avoid becoming a victim of front loading
Front loading is when a pool removal contractor asks for an excessively high down payment prior to starting the work. This is a huge red flag! As an example, the contractor may ask for a 50 percent down payment, only perform a small amount of the work, and then abandon the project entirely…leaving you with an unfinished job and an empty wallet. Don’t be a victim of these types of scams! As a rule of thumb, never pay more than 10% of the total amount upfront.
