Diving Into Your Pool Construction

It takes a lot of work to get from that first summery vision of a pool in your yard to actually having a completed oasis. From planning and designing, all the way through pool construction and filling, there are endless options to sort through and decisions to make. But don’t let it get you down, it’s not as daunting as it seems.

Before you get started on the construction phase of your pool, it’s a good idea to figure out who exactly you’ll be working with, and make sure you have them set up as your contact person. You’ll probably have a construction coordinator, a sales associate, and a designer all working on the project, and keeping in touch with all of them is key to a smooth pool construction phase. This is especially helpful if any problems arise and need to be dealt with quickly.

As construction starts, don’t let it fall completely into the hands of the workers. Keep your contract on hand, and make sure to keep an eye on the progress that is being made on a daily basis. Different times of year may make for slower or faster progress, depending on weather conditions, but you should have a timeline to go off of when you sign the contract. Make sure that work isn’t falling behind, and that delays in the work are dealt with.

After your pool is done, you have an opportunity to give feedback to your construction company. It may be helpful to take notes throughout the build, writing down concerns or praise for how everything was handled. Let your contractor know how it went, what they did well and what might be improved on. Hopefully they can improve the experience for their next customer.

The lure of a cool swim on a hot summer day is too good to ignore, so don’t delay any longer if you’ve been putting off your pool construction. Get referrals from people you know and find the contractor that fits your needs so you can enjoy the outcome. And once it’s done, make a referral yourself to share your good fortune with the people you know.

What People Are Saying About Us

Dennis Bunch

I would just like to thank GSM Builders. My husband and I like our pool that has just been remodeled. While we thought we would have to build a new pool, Greg saved us on time and money. We added a spa and water features to our dated pool. It looks great! I would highly recommend Greg and his team. Great work!

Dean Miller

When my parents were deciding to move Florida, the first thing I thought of was "you'd better buy a house with a pool." They did, but it was in major need of repairs. We called Greg and his team and they helped us remodel the pool and the entire area around it! It's like their own personal tropical escape in their backyard. He was fast, friendly, and gave us a fair price! I highly recommend Greg for all of your pool remodeling needs!

We had gone to three different pool builders. One of them never came back with a quote. The other quoted us for a pool that was on the smaller side. GSM quoted us for a larger pool and showed us a computer rendition of what it would look ..
