pool help

Has anybody here ever actually boarded a pool?I always get tarp approvals.

If so does anybody have a price roughly on s/ft??

I am pretty sure they will tarp the pool instead of board I just want to speed up the quote.

16 wide
30 long
1 diving board
2 ladders

Thank you all if you can help

We go $3.05/sf. remember to figure the overage on the extra board sitting on pool concrete.

FHA Allowable is up to $1050 less any % if National is involved. They used to base this on $2.05 sq'

The pool is 16 ft wide by 36 long I prefer the 3 s.ft over the 2 s/ft.

Like I said I have tarped pools but not boarded ever

I wouldn't do for the 2.05sf (gross pay FHA allowable) breakeven at best prices..... I always used the $3.05 which netted the $2.05sf after discounts/insurance costs. I only work for PAY

IMHO Pool boarding is stupid when there are EXTREMELY nice covers out there. Why "presidential engineer" a wood cover and deter from the homes value when you can install one of these that actually adds to the homes value............

The reason for the hard cover or HUD specs requirement is to prevent someone or thing potentially falling into the pool and drowning or suffucating if trapped inside the tarp or plastic that is used to cover it.

For liability reasons you should be informing and bidding to hard cover or cover to HUD specs, the pool so if they refuse you have documentation that you informed them of the potential danger and corrective action to CYA.

Fremont pricing is on. They ain't going to like it, but hell, if you aren't losing money on the project they never do....

That's a nice cover for sure, but the pools around here are usually junk. I think it keeps buyers from seeing in it.
