To start the process of purchasing a new swimming pool, we must first meet at your residence to discuss your ideas and get a feel for your vision. At this meeting we will need to look at your property survey to determine the boundaries of your property. This will help us to get a better idea of how big or small your swimming pool will be, we call this the discovery process. During this process, we will ask questions that will help us to provide you with a pool design that is not only what you have envisioned but a design that fits in with your home's existing architecture. We will ask questions like: What size would you like your swimming pool to be? What type of pool deck would you like? Do you want to have a heated spa? Do you have any water features in mind, like rock waterfalls? The initial meeting and discovery process will only take about thirty to forty-five minutes.
Follow-Up Meeting / Presentation
This will be our second meeting and it will follow the initial meeting by about 3 to 4 days. At this meeting will show you a color design and layout of your new swimming pool along with a proposal. The design and proposal will detail the options that we discussed during the discovery process. The design that we show you is yours to keep and it is a working document. In other words, if the design is acceptable then we turn it into a pool construction layout that is then used to acquire the necessary permits for construction and it is also used by the tradesmen for construction purposes. If the design needs some modification before acceptance, we will make the changes and email them back to you in order to speed up the process. Once we have the design and proposal ready for acceptance and you approve them, we move on to secure a swimming pool construction permit and schedule your project for commencement.
Color and Finish Selections
At this meeting we will be choosing the color scheme for your decking, tile, pool interior finish and screen enclosure. The meeting will take place at our showroom where we have all the latest samples of these materials. We will fill out a color information sheet that we will use for ordering the materials for your new swimming pool. We will want to schedule this appointment soon after the contract is signed so that we can get all materials on order and prevent delays. Sometimes this meeting will happen at the same time we sign the contract.
