7 Pool Contractors in Vancouver

By AK Timber in Hardscaping, Outdoor Design

Having a pool used to be a luxury that few people had. Now, it is something that more and more families are getting. Our summers keep getting warmer which opens up the opportunity to go in more frequently. Pools are great family bonding tools that create an outdoor space for everyone to enjoy, no matter who they are.

You can use pools to get in shape, to have a fun volleyball game, to get some relaxation in, or to cool off at the end of the day.

Still, you really need to think about what you are doing when you get a pool. They are a huge investment and, if not installed properly, can create a huge mess. You need to find a company or contractor that knows what they are doing and has a good reputation.

Here we highlight seven Vancouver businesses that have great reputations:

AK Timber Services Makes it Easy

There is nothing worse than sitting back in your pool and seeing a branch sticking out over the top, blocking the sun. Those branches can then change from annoying during the summer to potentially devastating in the fall and winter. Those leaves can weigh down the cover and push water from the pool when they fall, making a mess for the entire season and then when you open the pool.

Or, even worse, any branches over the pool when it gets colder can fall if they are weighed down by ice or snow. Those branches can rip liners, collapse fences, or just make the aesthetics of your costly investment look worse.

Don’t let your investment become a big problem – give AK Timber Services a call today.
