Knowing what to expect when building your pool can make things so much easier.
|1.||Time it takes to build
Dig to swim: Varies based on scope of project, your contractor and many other factors. Keep in mind that Florida’s rainy season and holidays can cause delays.
|2.||Permits / Inspections
Permits will be pulled by your contractor and inspections scheduled as necessary. 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 day of rain can delay a week plus. If there is a forecast for rain it can still affect progress.
|4.||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.
Progress should be measured on weekly basis, not daily.
When digging waterline utilities, many underground obstructions may not able to be located, old sewer lines, septics, etc. – Speak with your contractor to understand what possible delays and costs could be incurred if an issue arises.
What is required beyond ability to get in the backyard – what is around the project? Building a pool is a big project!
