With hot summer weather on the horizon, there’s no better time to upgrade your backyard pool. Whether it’s a full gut removal in anticipation of new construction, or upgrades to a current pool, both Outdoor Finishes and Backyard Creations have you covered. 

Since 2009, Frederick, Md.-based Outdoor Finishes has specialized in pool demolition and removal. Primarily focused on inground pool removal, they also offer services for above ground removal at a lower rate. No matter the reason, if you’d like to free up your backyard space, look no further than Outdoor Finishes. Not only do they provide a clean gut removal, but their expert landscaping will also leave you with a clean slate to create the outdoor space of your dreams. 

Many homeowners find that once their kids are off to college, the graduation party becomes the last time their pool sees any use before it becomes a forgotten financial liability. Pools can be a hefty investment considering the inevitable maintenance, repair, and renovation required for a well-maintained pool. Oftentimes these costs in the long run are higher than the cost of Outdoor Finishes’ services. Another consideration is the energy costs of pool ownership. By investing in removal, a property that may have once been out of budget due to pool care costs can now fall within range.

Outdoor Finishes serves peace of mind to prospective home buyers who may love a property, but not the pool that comes with it. Their expert team can help transform your property and allow for an outdoor space that will be utilized and cherished for years to come. Set up a consultation via phone at 301-416-2600 or via email to andrew@poolsremoved.com; to learn more visit their website at Poolsremoved.com.

Backyard Creations has offered expert pool constructing, renovating, and refurbishing services since 1991, with their roots in the swimming community reaching back even further. The company is the brainchild of a former lifeguard who felt his calling to create high-quality inground swimming pools. His team specializes in the creation of gunite pools — made with a mixture of cement, sand, and water — and is known for having superior structural integrity and moldability. This allows for an original creation that you can be confident was made to stand the test of time. Along with original construction, they work with existing pools and consult with customers on how they can take their outdoor swim space to the next level. 

With 25 years of construction experience, you can rest assured Backyard Creations will bring your ideas to life. They also offer a wide range of high-quality tile and finishes unique to each client’s vision. From heaters, and mosaics, to waterfalls and slides, you can feel free to let your imagination truly wander. Their renovation department is also well-equipped to handle every aspect of pool servicing including tile and coping repair and re-plastering. 

For homes with existing pools, but no time for upkeep, Backyard Creations offers pool cleaning and maintenance. Their weekly pool service includes water testing, pool vacuuming, and a check of pump, filter, and heater operation. Maintenance is also offered on a smaller scale through their vacation pool service in order to ensure it'll be primed and ready for your return.
