The sun, the heat- there’s no question that summer is well on it’s way. You might be thinking about installing an in-ground pool in the backyard of your Denver, CO home. At AFI Insurance, we want Denver residents to consider a few things before installing a pool.
– If you decide to install a pool, be sure to take safety precautions. A fence around the pool with a latched gate is important for keeping kids safe. Even if you don’t have kids (or they’re grown and out of the house), little ones have a way of making their way to open pools to swim. Talk with your fencing company about your options- some people choose to have their entire property enclosed with a fence, while others choose to only have the fence go around the pool.
– Consider your municipal code. Some municipalities have specific safety requirements that you’ll need to consider before having a pool installed. The last thing you want is to get hit with hefty fines and have to make modifications because your pool isn’t up to code.
– Talk with your insurance agent about the changes that installing a pool will mean for your homeowner’s insurance policy. Adding a pool to your policy can be a little bit tricky, as a pool can greatly increase the overall value of your property.
At AFI Insurance, serving Denver, CO, we’re here to help you get the home insurance coverage that you need. Call us or stop into our office to talk with an agent about creating a policy that makes sense for you and your home.
