Once we receive the necessary permits, construction begins. As we prepare to break ground, BBCP maps out your pool on site so you can better visualize its dimensions. During this phase, our construction manager meets with you to define expectations for the process and answer any questions you may have.
Upon your final approval, we’ll begin excavation, which typically takes one to two days. The pool floor is then covered with a crushed stone base; rough plumbing is installed, and the structure is reinforced with a steel rebar cage to ensure stability. All structural elements are inspected and approved to assure quality, and a gunite shell is added to create the strongest in-ground pool on the market.
While construction can be unavoidably chaotic and messy, we aim to complete this phase as quickly as possible to minimize safety concerns and lessen any disruption to your daily routine. From the initial excavation to the shooting of the shell, the entire process typically won’t exceed two weeks.
Interior Finish And Landscaping Services
At BBCP, we understand the importance of involving the homeowner in all design choices, so upon completion of construction, we’ll schedule a visit to our showroom so you can view our many tile and pool finish options. Choices include white Marbelite plaster, our standard finish, which gives your pool a serene, early-morning-sky blue appearance, and a variety of quartz and pebble upgrades that create the feel of a mountain lake or a clear, tropical blue ocean. For additional finish options and tips on selecting a color for your custom pool, visit NPT Pool Finishes.
Another important aspect is the landscaping. Using trees and shrubs, lush plants and flowers and even outdoor décor, formal landscaping services provide a way to integrate your new pool into your yard. BBCP works closely with independent local landscapers to give your project a finished look that’s as simple or as ornate as you want.
Customer Orientation And Pool Upkeep
Our commitment to you doesn’t end when construction does. At BBCP, we understand that a custom pool is a major purchase, and we want to help you protect your investment. Our highly trained technicians prepare your pool for use and train you in upkeep techniques, such as maintaining proper water chemistry and brushing surfaces regularly to preserve your pool’s aesthetic beauty and structural integrity so that you can ensure years of enjoyment. Our Pool Care Guide is available for quick reference, and for additional tips and techniques, we recommend the National Plasterers Council’s Pool Start-up Guidelines.
