Installing a backyard basketball court can be a very expensive project. That’s if you hire someone to do it from start to finish. With the help of this post and the many links included in this post, you will be armed with enough information to be your own general contractor and get your court constructed for half the price as if you were to hire a full-service company.
Step #1- What type of surface should I get?
Step #2- What size court should I get?
Step #3- Who should I hire?
Hire a reputable local asphalt paving company for paving or a local mason or landscape construction company for the concrete pad. A reputable local company should be able to install an asphalt or concrete pad without a problem. To find a reputable paver or mason, consult with neighbors, local civic organization or the internet.
-Local Asphalt Suppliers/Plants- They supply the companies and usually know who the good ones are.
-Local stone suppliers- They know the landscapers
-Google- Keywords: pavers, masons, landscape construction
Step #4- Where should I get a hoop?
Look no further. We are providing you all of this info in the hopes that you purchase a hoop through us. We have a wealth of options. Our hoops are the highest quality hoops on the market and are 100% Made in the USA.
We will also provide you with a local installation to install your basketball hoop.
Step #5- What do I do about paint?
We will provide you with a DIY kit that will include all of the pre-mixed paint and any tools or equipment you will need to paint your court. This does not mean you have to paint your court. You can if you’re handy. However, you can, again, hire someone locally to paint your court.
This is where you can save a significant amount of money. We sell in volume and give you the paint for significantly less than if you were to hire someone locally who will either buy the hoop in 5-gallon pails and charge you accordingly. You will be paying less for the paint than if you were to but it yourself or have your contractor buy it.
Your savings is that you will be paying your painter only for his/her labor.
Where to find a painter?
-Sportmaster.net has a national directory of tennis court painters. Keep in mind, their’s is the most extensive database in the country but that doesn’t guarantee that they will have someone in your area.
-Again, the local asphalt suppliers will likely know who the local tennis court painters are.
-Companies that specialize in epoxy paint are usually experienced in multiple products on multiple surfaces.
