How To Keep Your Outdoor Oasis Project Going During These Trying Times
You may have been planning to enhance your outdoor space this spring and are wondering what to do now that people are being urged or told to stay at home. The coronavirus crisis makes it hard to imagine consulting with a designer before starting in on any new projects. But one silver lining of this crisis cloud is that it may be one of most optimal times to do so.
If you were already planning on a pool renovation project, or were thinking of adding a spa, pool house, pergola or some sort of water feature like a fountain or waterfall, Liquid Assets Pools is ready to help – and we can offer some very creative ways of getting the job done while maintaining social distancing and abiding by all CDC recommendations for safety and health.
1. Set Up A Virtual Consult.
“Keeping people employed helps the overall economy,” says Liquid Assets Pools president, John Jacobsen. “And during this crisis, an advantage for homeowners is that we have a little more time on our hands than we normally would during what is normally our peak building season,” said Jacobsen.
Jacobsen recommends getting the process started with a virtual consultation. According to Jacobsen, “We can set up a FaceTime or Skype session where you can give us an overview of your backyard area and what you have in mind. We can then discuss and provide insights into how we can make it happen – all without having to meet in person.”
2. Share Examples Of What You Have In Mind.
The early stages of a project are also a good time to share inspiration images and ideas going through Houzz ideabooks or on Pinterest. On the Liquid Assets Pinterest page, you’ll find all sorts of categories full of potential ideas that might be applied to your own project.
Seeing what you have in mind, combined with the available working space for your project will give us a good idea of what to propose and develop cost ranges as well that can all be agreed upon before beginning the permitting process.
3. Utilize Our 3D Imaging Pool Studio Software.
Many Liquid Assets Pools customers have taken advantage of our 3D imaging Pool Studio software to see almost exactly how their new pool will fit into their existing space. The same can apply for any new additions you’re planning. Whether it’s a new pool house, pergola or adding a cascading waterfall that flows into your pool, you don’t need to just rely on drawing plans, you can see it all in 3D (there is a nominal charge for using it).
4. Our Crews Are Ready To Build Right Now.
According to the recently released directives from St. Louis City and County, construction companies like Liquid Assets are considered essential and we are authorized to continue working during the Stay at Home order. All employees and crew members will continue to follow our enhanced Safety policies to protect each other and our customers.
5. Use Our Real Time Update App Throughout The Project.
You can get updates on your project, see what’s next in the construction phase and request schedule changes if necessary – all by using our Real Time Update app that we’ll arrange to download on your iPhone or android phone.
It’s a great way to stay in the loop on what’s going on with your project’s construction progress. Sometimes, bad weather can cause delays. With the app, you can get real time updates on scheduling. Should ever need to delay construction due to activities taking place at your home, you can use the app to communicate and we’ll adjust the schedule accordingly. It’s just another way that Liquid Assets Pools is working on your behalf, making sure you’re always informed of progress throughout the entire project.
6. Not Ready To Move Ahead Yet? Get Everything Set Up For When You Are.
With all the uncertainty about the economy, we understand if you want to wait a while longer before getting your project in the works. But if you contact Liquid Assets Pools now, you can have all the planning and preparation ready to go as soon as you are. Obtaining permits takes time as does the overall construction project. But once you’re ready to roll, you’ll be glad you took this time to get the process in the works.
