We get many questions about our swimming pool construction services. Here, you can find commonly asked questions and answers. As always, if you have any additional questions or concerns, we would love to hear from you!

How long will it take to build my swimming pool?

Usually, most swimming pool builds can be finished within 8-12 weeks from excavation day, but inclement weather like rain, snow, and other dangerous conditions can increase the pool building period. The complexity of a pool design with additions like fire pits, water features, and spas, can also affect the amount of time required to construct a swimming pool.

Do I have to be present during the pool construction process?

There are only a few specific days we will need you onsite.

What should I expect during my pool construction process?

Your custom pool installation is a major construction project. There will be many skilled tradespeople on site to make sure the construction of your new swimming pool runs smoothly.

For more information, check out our detailed process from start to finish on what to expect during your custom pool build.

How do I know what type of swimming pool would be suitable for my backyard? 

Most swimming pool shapes are customizable to almost any backyard. When it comes to choosing your custom swimming pool installation and design, we can help provide guidance to what pool style is right for you.

Is my backyard big enough for an inground swimming pool?

It depends on what fits your needs best. While an Olympic-sized swimming pool may not fit in your backyard, we can scale the pool down to fit in most spaces.

We work with you to create a custom swimming pool design to fit your home and your needs.

Will a swimming pool increase the calue of my home?

It will, though the best reasons for getting one don’t take that into the decision.

How much does a new swimming pool cost?

Prices vary from roughly $60,000 to infinity. Much like a home, it varies based on size, options, complexity, etc.

Do you offer a warranty program for my new inground pool? 

Yes. We offer a better warranty than any other builder in Texas.

We also have extensive tips, how-to’s, and other articles in our Pool School to help you maintain your pool yourself
