In-ground swimming pools are considered a luxury addition to many Illinois homes, but sometimes homeowners grow tired of having a pool in their back yard. Many their kids have grown and moved away and the maintenance involved with having a pool has become tiring and overwhelming. Maybe they want to expand their home and need the space currently occupied by the pool. Or, maybe they want to upgrade their pool and replace it with a newer model. Whatever the reason, removing a pool requires the skill and training of a good pool removal contractor.

What’s involved with removing a swimming pool

Removing an in-ground swimming pool involves a number of steps. The first thing we do is obtain all of the necessary permits and licenses from your local government. Next, we drill holes in the pool and gradually allow the water to leak into the ground. After that, we break up the concrete and haul the pieces away, recycling the material where possible. Lastly, we fill the void with top soil and plant sod atop the dirt. In a few weeks, you won’t even be able to see where the pool used to be.

Why hire a professional pool removal specialist

When you hire a professional pool removal team, you automatically get the many benefits that come with having a qualified, experienced crew on-site. These include:

  • Proper permits. We make sure that you stay without local building and zoning regulations by making sure that we obtain the necessary permits before we begin removing your pool.
  • Licensing, insurance and bonding. All of our employees are licensed, bonded and insured. That means should an accident occur or your property be damaged during the removal process, you’ll be adequately compensated.
  • Recycling. We make sure to take the material from your demolition site to centers that help turn that material into other, usable products.
  • Thorough clean up. We’ll leave your property cleaner than we found it. It’s how we do business.
