Houston is known for its intense summer heat and humidity. The average highs in June, July, and August are easily over 90 degrees. One of the best ways to stay cool and comfortable outdoors is in a swimming pool—floating in the clear, cool water. But don’t wait until temperatures soar to get your pool ready for the summer. Now is the time to schedule your pool inspection from Bryan & Bryan Inspections. With an inspection from Bryan & Bryan, our inspector will do a thorough inspection of your home pool to check for safety concerns and assess for damage from previous seasons or the winter months. If you haven’t had an inspection in a while (or never had one), we recommend that you get a pool inspection now to avoid the late spring rush. That way, if repairs are necessary, you can have them taken care of before you throw that first pool party of the season. Are you new to Houston? If you’re in the market for a home in Texas, we recommend that you keep a swimming pool on your wish list. You’ll be glad for those refreshing dips in the pool come July—especially if you’re new to the area and need some time to adjust to the weather. However, before you purchase a property, check out our certified inspected homes, or in the least, make sure your home inspection includes a thorough pool inspection. You don’t want to purchase a pool in disrepair because that could easily add thousands of dollars onto the purchase price of your home. If the pool inspection reveals safety concerns or damage, your best bet may be to either walk away from the property or renegotiate the contract with the seller. A pool is a beautiful thing, but only when it’s well-maintained. Let Bryan & Bryan help you make sure your pool (or potential pool) is ready for hours of summer fun.
