Frequently Asked Questions

  Q: How much does a swimming pool cost?

A: Many factors go into determining the cost of a pool. They include location, materials used, permitting fees, and labor costs, in addition to size, depth, water features, and other accessories. (diving board, slide, etc.) Given basic information we can provide you with a "ballpark" estimate of what your pool will cost. Of course, your actual bids will vary.

Q: How long does it take to build a pool?

A: Depending on the complexity of the pool, and whether or not a spa is included, a realistic estimate (given good weather), is about 4-6 weeks.

Q: Will my yard be destroyed?

A: Most pool builders take precautions not to unnecessarily harm your yard. However, building a pool is serious construction and entails the use of heavy equipment which typically have an adverse affect on lawns. The builder will usually re-sod (where necessary) after the completion of the pool to restore the lawn. This may or may not be included in the original cost.

Q: What about swimming pool renovations?

A: A pool renovation includes a simple re-plaster all the way up to a major overhaul of the entire pool, decking, and landscaping. We have qualified builders who specialize in these areas that are glad to help with your project.

Q: Can you take care of my landscaping also?

A: Yes, our builders all have the ability to do a "turn key" job. Once you decide on the plans, they will handle the entire project, including the landscaping.

Q: Will you help us with financing?

A: We can provide you with information on several finance sources. Between these and the contacts each pool builder has, you should have ample choices.

Q: What benefits do I get going through Pool Bids?

A: For most people, building a swimming pool is a one-time project. Finding a quality builder can prove to be quite a chore, with many uncertainties. Just because someone's neighbor likes his pool doesn't guarantee the builder will please the next. We deal with all of our builders everyday. We know which ones are bidding aggressively and which ones aren't. We know their schedules and we know which companies are most capable of building your type of pool exactly as you envision. Because we are independent, we can offer an unbiased opinion. With our experience, you start off way ahead of the game. We save people thousands of dollars everyday.
