Pool Construction Tips

Hi, I'm Mandy. If you're looking for tips on pool construction, you've come to the right place. We've just had a new pool installed and I'm full of advice! When I started on our pool I thought it would be an easy build. Boy, was I wrong. I didn't know anything about building a pool apart from the fact I wanted one. Luckily, our construction company set me straight. They helped me work out how big the pool could be and they showed me which shape would suit our yard space. They sorted out permits and even gave me advice on fencing. To find out what I learned, read through my blog. Hope it helps!

Why should you hire a land surveyor?

by Bessie Beck

It is not always a legal requirement to hire land surveyors when you are dealing with a property, but that doesn't mean that you should choose to manage without a surveyor. While you might see avoiding the cost of the surveyor as a benefit, that would be a mistake. It overlooks the money that hiring land surveyors can save you.

How land surveyors work for you

It's easy to see land surveyors as only a necessary evil in the process of property purchase, but their work directly benefits you. The information they provide could save you money or even stop you from making a purchase if they discover that there is a problem with the land that means you could not use your purchase in the way you intend. The land surveyors will be able to indicate exactly where the boundaries of your property lay and which areas of your property you will be able to build upon. Their work will stop you from encroaching on your neighbours' property or committing other common blunders that could result in you needing to tear down any structure you build in the wrong place at your own expense.

How to pick the right land surveyors

One of the problems with choosing a land surveyor is that most people don't need their services very often, so they don't have much experience in working with them or know how to select the most appropriate land surveyors for their purposes. One of the best ways to offset this lack of knowledge is to find someone else who has worked with a land surveyor recently. Perhaps a relation or friend has enjoyed a good working relationship with a surveyor and would be happy to recommend them.

If you can't get a personal recommendation, then asking your real estate agent is often a good idea. They frequently interact with land surveyors in a professional capacity and will know who the most reliable local surveyors are.

Do your own research

Even when a team of land surveyors come highly recommended, it is always worth doing your own research to check that they are properly qualified and have experience carrying out work that is similar to your project. Find out how they deal with issues such as billing and travel time. If there are any delays to the project caused by weather conditions or external factors, you don't want to risk your bills increasing because you haven't appreciated how the land surveyors operate. Conducting research and asking the right questions before hiring them is the best way to ensure a smooth working relationship.
