Fall and winter are perfect times to remodel commercial pools

By Mike Wright November 14, 2013


Summer has ended and with it goes a majority of tourists. This means that your commercial indoor pool is probably seeing a greatly decreased number of swimmers. Your outdoor pool has likely been closed for several weeks now. After winterizing outdoor sites, it may seem like pool management tasks and plans stop until summer arrives again. However, fall and winter are actually great times to consider a remodeling project of any size.

Take advantage of the quiet season
Most commercial pool owners plan to have remodeling projects done in the springtime. This means that contractors will be incredibly busy or completely booked. Instead, take advantage of the autumn and winter seasons to reach out to professional pool construction services. It’s very likely that they’ll have plenty of time to discuss your plans and options.

If you’re planning a big project, contacting the company at this point in the season may be the optimal time. Projects can run anywhere from several days to a few months and you won’t have to worry about the remodeling running into swimming season. Additionally, if any problems should arise, you’ll be sure to notice them well before the arrival of summer, leaving contractors plenty of time to return and fix the issue.

Have more time to prepare
A remodeling project may very well call for some redecorating. The sooner the project is completed, the more time you’ll have to move the deck furniture around to figure out the configuration that best complements the new design. You’ll also be able to gauge whether you’ll need more staff for the pool and have the time to put out advertisements, conduct interviews and train new hires.

If your remodeling is a large project that you believe will require more staff to complete, consider reaching out to a full-service pool company that will be able to provide builders for your project and provide trained staff for the facility. This allows organizations to focus on methods to increase guest attendance and satisfaction.

There are many advantages in reaching out to pool construction services this winter. You’ll give yourself and your staff more time to prepare for the busy season and you’ll most likely be able to schedule several consultation appointments before contractors begin the work. This way, you can have your project completed well ahead of time and ready for swimmers.
