A Permit – We Might Need It
Depending upon local statutes and regulations, we may need a permit to perform our services on your property. This is something we’ll quickly investigate and, if needed, we’ll pick up the permit to perform Fallston, Maryland pool demolition. Once we have the permit, we’ll get started as soon as possible.
Removing Water – Is there water in the pool?
If your pool has water, we’ll need to drain this out. This is no problem at all and to drain the water, we’ll drill holes into the concrete. Water drainage will occur during day 1 of demolition.
Demolition – Abandonment vs Exhumation
When it comes to the actual method used to remove your old pool, you have options. The Remove A Pool team may perform an abandonment demolition or we may perform an exhumation demolition. The abandonment method tends to be the most popular choice amongst property owners for pricing reasons.
Both methods are equally adequate; however, in some instances it is recommended to perform an exhumation. In the end, your choice should boil down to budget, preference, and your plans for this area of the property.
During an abandonment demolition, we’ll demolish part of the pool and with an exhumation we’ll demolish the entire pool. Part of the abandonment process involves the careful punching of holes into the lower portion of the remaining concrete. These holes will help the buried pool to drain in the future when it rains.
Debris Removal and a Fresh Start For the Lawn
Following demolition, we’ll remove all of the debris from the property. Concrete is recycled and our team will plant grass seed for property owners upon request. There is an additional charge for the grass seed service.
