The High Cost of Cut-Rate Swimming Pool Removal
While everyone likes to save money on home improvement services, it’s important to recognize the fact that dealing with an unlicensed pool removal contract could wind up costing you a lot more than you ever thought was possible.
The average backyard swimming pool contains thousands of gallons of water – water that could cause some serious damage to your home and neighboring properties if it’s not extracted properly. There are also numerous utility lines leading to your pool which need to be located, disconnected, and capped off and that the actual pool structure needs to be demolished safely as well.
Using an unlicensed pool removal company, a fly-by-night contractor, or trying to tackle the project yourself isn’t just risky – it’s just plain dangerous.
Homeowners Are Liable for All Problems With Unlicensed Pool Removal
When you let an unlicensed contractor, your brother-in-law, your neighbor, or a family friend perform work on your property, by law, you are assuming sole responsibility for anything that goes wrong both during the project and in the future.
That means you will be held accountable by the county building inspector, your utility providers, your neighbors, and all future owners of your home for work that’s done without the proper permits and insurance policies. This includes full liability for any:
- Worksite injuries that occur on your property
- Problems with the utility disconnection
- Damage to neighboring properties
- Damage to your own house, yard, and landscaping
- Issues with the work that are discovered by future owners of your property
And if you decide to simply drain out all the water from your backyard pool, fill the entire space in yourself and plant grass over the area, it’s simply a matter of time before the real cost of cutting corners on your pool removal project start piling up. Whether a sinkhole forms, your neighbor reports you to the county building, or your insurance company discovers what you’ve done, chances are good your unwanted pool will haunt you for years to come.
Remember – unless the pool removal contractor you hire is fully licensed, registered, and insured, you are leaving yourself and your family wide open to huge liability claims.
Before you decide what to do with your unwanted pool, take the time to really weigh the risks letting an unlicensed contractor work on your property.
