by Pool Builders on 06-10-2009 in Articles

How many times have you started in on a project that on the surface seemed just so easy and affordable, only to be bombarded by hidden costs that ran the final prise through the roof? Well guess what? Swimming pools are chock full of possible hidden costs and determining them can help you in making your final decision that much more affordable.

Hidden Costs In Inground Pools

For instance if you are considering having a conventional concrete inground swimming pool installed at your home or business then get ready. It's so easy to buy, because you can simply pick and choose from all the options that your contractor will present you with.

Once the Work Begins On Swimming Pools

Once the work begins however, you have opened a Pandora's box that has left many a homeowner financially depleted. Check the contract for instance and you will see that it will be peppered with "ifs and or buts" from top to bottom.

Excavation For Swimming Pools Is Never Cheap Or Easy

Excavation is never cheap in even the best of circumstances but if your contractor runs into bedrock or large rock masses that can't be removed by "conventional means", guess who pays for the blasting that can run up to $10,000 per day? Thats right you do!

Say Good-Bye To Your Fencing and Landscaping

Take a good look at your landscaping and fencing. As much as any pool contractor will tell you that they will be as careful as possible, it is all going to be obliterated. Also you will be required to pay for any unforseen underground utilities such as sewer and electrical lines that have to be rerouted.

List Of Things To Check Up On

So what do these things mean for you? They mean that by checking with your county planning and records office before you take on the task of having an inground swimming pool installed can save you a ton of money in the long run. Also you might think of asking a neighbor who has had an inground pool installed how their digging went.
