What should I expect of my new pool finish?2018-03-02T16:14:47+00:00

Please keep in mind pool finishes are hand troweled to create a smooth finish, but your new pool may naturally have a wavy appearance which will be magnified by an underwater light. The curing process will occur over the next ten to twelve months, but the first 28 days are the most critical. During this time pool surfaces are most susceptible to scaling, staining, and discoloration. Proper filling and start up procedures are imperative to help this process begin. Never turn the water off completely while a pool is filling. The pool finish is extremely vulnerable until it is covered by water! There are many things in the environment which could stain or discolor the finish including fertilizers and deck or lawn maintenance chemicals.

What aspects of the design and construction process does BBCP handle?2018-03-02T14:53:51+00:00

BBCP works closely with some of the most respected contractors in the industry. We work hand in hand with landscapers from the design process to final details of the construction of your backyard oasis. In situations where the homeowner has not chosen a landscaper for the design of the project our team can provide a finished design, with our inhouse landscape designer, of the project for review. We can then bring one of our trusted landscape partners in to implement the design.

Does BBCP take care of the permit process?2018-03-02T14:52:27+00:00

We are here to make it as hassle free as possible for you. Yes, BBCP takes care of the permit process from beginning to end. The only thing needed would be a signature by the home owner where required by the township. Also, some townships require engineering plans and storm water management which BBCP coordinates directly with our Engineer and surveyor to get that completed.
