I have been house hunting for about 6+ months now and I found a home within my range w/ a pool(which I want a pool). The home is in Carrollton, Tx(NW Dallas County or SE Denton County).
Here's the scoop on the pool. The pool has been covered with wood, wire mesh and a tarp. When I stick my head under the tarp the pool is about 2 feet low and filled with some greenish water. I can see the bottom in the shallow end, err the thick green algea that is, so the water isn't super green. There are some spots along the sides where the plaster is a bit raised, not much though it looks like when you paint somthing and use to much paint and it dribbles. I believe that is normal wear and tear on the plaster of a pool(from what I have heard). I cannot see any major cracks in the sides and the concrete decking around the pool looks to be in good shape, some cracks on the edges(very minor), and none that I saw running towards the pool. Only one 4x4(guesstimate) tile is missing around the entire pool. It has been vacant for a while(waiting on realitor to email back with how long), with the drout around here lately it makes me feel that the structure is fine because the water level is still high with it being so dry.
I personally would feel a whole lot better if I had a professional look at it. Anyone live around there and have any recomendations on a company that could do all that needs to be done for a fair(you tell me) price?
Is there anything else I should try to look at myself before finding an inspector?
Thanks for the help in advance!!
Edit: In ground gunite and I believe it was built in 1986 with the house.(going to verify)
