Most Glen Allen, Virginia homeowners think of an in-ground pool as an asset to their property. After all, Virginia’s temperate climate means that you can use a pool more than half of the year. However, there comes a time for some homeowners when they’d rather do without the space, time and expense required to maintain a swimming pool. Maybe their kids have grown up and moved away, leaving few family members to enjoy the pool. Maybe the expense and time necessary to keep a pool looking nice has become too much of a burden, or maybe they are considering adding on to their property and want to use the land where the swimming pool currently sits. Whatever the reason, getting rid of an in-ground swimming pool requires the equipment, training and experience of a pool removal specialist.

Having your pool removed may sound like a daunting process to the average homeowner. However, our pool removal team can return your land to its original state (sans pool) in a short amount of time with little mess or interruption of your daily routine.
We follow a few key steps. First, we make sure that we have all of the necessary paperwork and permits in place before we begin the demolition. We also take time to located all of your underground utility wires and cables, so we won’t interrupt your electric service while we are taking out your pool.
The next step involves drilling many, small holes into the concrete base of your swimming pool and allowing the pool water to gradually seep out into surrounding ground. After the water is all gone, our team breaks up the concrete into manageable pieces and hauls these pieces away to a local recycling location, where the pieces can be used to create new building products. Finally, we haul in top soil and fill dirt to fill in the void left by the swimming pool. If you are planning to leave the area as lawn, we’ll also plant grass seed atop the dirt.
