What To Expect When Building A New Pool

Pool Building Expectations

Building Time

Building times vary based on the scope of your project, your contractor and things that are out of everyone’s control. But it is always a good time to build a swimming pool. Keep in mind that Florida’s rainy season and holidays can cause delays.

Weather

One day of rain can delay a week plus.  Even if the forecast predicts rain, it can still affect progress.

Permits & Inspections

Permits will be pulled by your contractor and inspections scheduled as necessary.  However, a contractor cannot guarantee they can get an inspector to come out the moment they have completed a portion of the project that requires an inspection.

Change Orders & Materials

Any time you change what you want for the project, including materials and finishes, the project will be delayed and additional costs may be incurred.

Production

Production expectations should be based on weekly progress, not daily progress.

Utilities

When digging there are problems that could arise including difficulty detecting the waterline, and obstruction by old sewer lines, septics, etc. – Speak with your contractor to understand what possible delays and costs could be incurred if an issue arises.

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 ..
