Benefits of Removing a Pool Saves time and money on pool maintenance. Has more space in the yard for other activities or landscaping opportunities. You no longer have the additional dangers and responsibilities that come with owning a pool. If your pool has literally turned into a money pit, you may quickly find that the cost of removing your pool is lower than the cost of getting it running again.

While not cheap, removing a pool is a relatively simple process. In addition, it requires fewer design decisions, choice of materials and, in general, is a simpler procedure. Just make sure you research and hire a company you trust to do the renewal. Maybe the pool deck needs to be repaved, or the old wooden planks are rotten.

Concrete in the pool may need to be re-paved, or tiles may break. Depending on how the pool is used, you may not be able to justify a redesign or investment in a new look of your existing pool, deck, or landscaping. A house with a swimming pool buried in the courtyard has been the ultimate luxury for almost 100 years, and the charm is not about to disappear. But for some pool owners, it's a relationship they'd rather end.

Some choose to fill or demolish their pools instead of continuing to maintain or remodel them. Removing your pool also allows your property to have more outdoor green space. A clear patio increases the potential of your property and therefore increases the value of your property. Any idea how long you plan to stay in this house? If you're going to be there a while, I think it would be a good idea to get it.

You don't like it and you'd probably enjoy your patio more without it. Also, it might be a good idea to get it out anyway. You say you don't think swimming pools increase the value of homes in your area, so there's no point in spending a lot of money on repairs, maintenance, etc. I think all too often people worry that something will affect the value of their home when one day they sell on the road.

What about the value of enjoyment you get from anything while you live there?. That can be worth a lot. If your home has a fairly small backyard and the pool takes up a large amount, such as in the close-to-fence pool, then it might be a good idea to raze the pool, especially if you plan to reside in the house for several more years. By removing the pool, a homeowner can gain more space that they can use for landscaping, installing a shed or gazebo, or even building an extension of the home's living spaces if the complete removal of the in-ground pool is completed.

And remove or fill your pool the right way so you can start enjoying the many new uses for your backyard space and landscape. For the serious gardener, some pools can be leveled with gravel and turned into a sunken greenhouse, using the soil to provide stable temperatures for growing plants. However, in the long run, we thought it would be less expensive to eliminate it due to maintenance costs and the loss of potential buyers, when it is sold. To calculate the cost of removing an in-ground concrete pool, or whatever type and size of pool you have, get a quote from your local pool removal contractor.

Here is a list of factors that may have a negative effect on the value of your home and that should lead you to consider removing the pool. We have a similar group and are looking at replacing it with a different one, so that all parts can be updated. Caring for a pool can be a slow and costly process, especially if it's not used as often as in the past. At the lower end, average pools will consume approximately 200 square feet, while larger pools can cover up to 800 square feet of previous patio space.

Some bylaws will require a pool to be completely removed, while others may allow partial disposal (fill the pool). While most are big pool lovers and may think you're crazy, there are a couple of builders who frequent the forum and can give you an idea of the cost of removing your pool. I have a dilapidated pool; underground plumbing is not good, maintenance is incredibly expensive, no one swims in it since the kids grew up and moved. Those considering buying a home with a pool already installed may not want to bear the risks or expenses of a legacy pool.

Saving time and cost alone can make the home seem like a great deal for all buyers and especially good for families with young children or pets who may view a pool as a potential drowning hazard. It's good to enjoy swimming pools at a friend's or neighbor's house, but it can be a hassle to have them in your own home. . .
