  • Do you offer complimentary consultations?
    Yes, we do offer complimentary initial consultations. During this first meeting, we can discuss the feasibility of your project, including whether it's possible to build, and if the scope, schedule, and budget are aligned with your expectations. However, it's important to note that while we provide the initial consultation free of charge, we do not offer free designs. Every project we undertake is custom and requires a thorough design process, which takes time and resources to ensure it meets your specific needs and preferences. If you're interested in moving forward with a design for your project after the initial consultation, we can discuss our design process and associated fees in more detail. Please let us know if you'd like to schedule your complimentary consultation or if you have any further questions. We're here to help!
  • How much does a pool project cost?
    When it comes to estimating the cost, it's a bit tricky without having a design in hand. Pool projects can vary a lot based on factors like size, materials, and specific features you're looking for. As a starting point, our custom pools typically begin at $120,000 without a spa. However, this is just a general figure and the final cost can fluctuate depending on the specifics of your project. To provide you with a more accurate estimate, we'd love to discuss your vision in more detail and work with you to create a design that fits both your needs and your budget. Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions or would like to start the design process!
  • How long does it take to build a pool, total process and actual construction time?
    The process typically consists of three main steps: design, permitting, and construction. The design phase usually takes around 4-6 weeks, but this timeframe can vary depending on the availability of both parties and the complexity of your project. Permitting can be a bit unpredictable as it depends on the regulations and procedures of your city or county. However, we make sure to set clear expectations regarding timing upfront to minimize any delays. Construction generally takes between 8-12 weeks. Again, this timeframe can vary based on the complexity of the project and the site conditions. Projects with heavy engineering involvement may take longer to ensure everything is done correctly. Overall, while we aim to provide estimates for each phase, it's important to keep in mind that unforeseen circumstances can sometimes affect the timeline. Rest assured, we're committed to keeping you informed every step of the way and delivering a high-quality project within a reasonable timeframe. If you have any further questions or would like to discuss your project in more detail, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Please let us know a convenient time for you, and we'll be happy to arrange it. Looking forward to the opportunity to work together!
  • Should we add a heater to the pool or not?
    Whether or not to include a heater depends on a few factors, including your personal preferences, budget, and how often you plan to use the pool. A heater can extend your swimming season, allowing you to enjoy your pool comfortably even during cooler weather. It also provides flexibility, allowing you to control the temperature of the water to suit your preferences. However, it's important to consider the initial cost of the heater, as well as ongoing energy expenses associated with heating the pool. We recommend weighing these factors against the benefits of having a heated pool to determine if it's the right choice for you. If you'd like further guidance or assistance in making this decision, please feel free to reach out. We're here to help!
  • Should we add an auto cover to the pool?
    Whether or not to include an autocover depends on several factors, including safety concerns, maintenance preferences, and budget considerations. Autocovers offer several benefits, including increased safety by preventing unauthorized access to the pool and reducing the risk of accidents, particularly for families with young children or pets. However, it's important to weigh these benefits against the initial cost of installing an autocover, as well as any ongoing maintenance requirements. Additionally, autocovers may not be suitable for all pool designs or environments, so it's essential to consider how well it fits with your specific needs and preferences. If you'd like more information or assistance in making this decision, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to help you find the best solution for your pool.
  • How much ongoing maintenance pool requires? Can I do it myself?

  • How much pool patio can I have? What about artificial turf?
    The amount of pool patio and artificial turf you can incorporate into your outdoor space depends on several factors, including local regulations and the limitations of lot coverage. Many municipalities have regulations regarding lot coverage, which dictate the maximum percentage of your property that can be covered by buildings, structures, and impervious surfaces. However, within the constraints of lot coverage regulations, you can typically design your pool patio and artificial turf areas to meet your needs and preferences. Whether you're looking for a spacious patio for lounging and entertaining or a lush artificial turf area for recreation and relaxation, there are plenty of options to explore.

  • Why do you need my property survey?
    Having access to your property survey is essential for several reasons when building a pool and outdoor living space. Firstly, the property survey provides us with accurate measurements and information about the layout of your property, including property lines, easements, and any existing structures or utilities. This information is crucial for determining the best location and design for your pool and outdoor living area, ensuring that they comply with local regulations and zoning requirements. Additionally, the property survey helps us identify any potential obstacles or challenges that may need to be addressed during the construction process, such as grading issues, drainage considerations, or utility easements. By having a clear understanding of the property boundaries and existing conditions, we can develop a comprehensive plan that minimizes disruptions and maximizes the functionality and aesthetics of your outdoor space. Overall, having access to your property survey enables us to design and build your pool and outdoor living area with precision and accuracy, ensuring that the final result meets your expectations and complies with all necessary regulations. If you have any further questions or concerns about providing your property survey, please feel free to reach out. We're here to assist you every step of the way.
