3 things Your Pool Contract Should Include

Posted February 2, 2023 in 3D Design, Blog, Design/Build, General, Pool, Videos

Before you build a new pool in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, your pool builder should produce a written contract that outlines all of the features included in your project before they start construction. This document should define what your pool will look like, and how much it will cost, and show a plan of how it will be built.

When it comes to building your dream pool, understanding your pool contract is essential. But, sometimes we are so excited about planning our future pool parties that we neglect to concentrate on the details. So, if you are looking to add an in-ground pool to your new outdoor living space, here are 3 things you should look for in your pool construction contract:

  • A clear visual showing exactly how your new pool will look 

At the very least a detailed plan and scale drawing showing the shape and size of your new pool in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania must be included as part of your swimming pool contract. But it would be even better if you could see all of the details while listening to the sound of rippling water, and visualizing all the features before you commit to any financial investments.

Since building a new swimming pool is a big investment, we know there are many critical questions you need to be answered and things you need to consider before you start investing in building a new swimming pool. This is why we help you create a custom 3D design that allows you to imagine all the beautiful moments you will be able to create in your new custom outdoor living space in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania before you commit to any final decisions about your investment. This proven process eliminates the guessing game and ensures you are completely confident and comfortable about your design choices and financial investment before you actually begin building your custom outdoor living space.

  • Clearly identify the materials that will be used for your new pool 

When building a new in-ground pool, you’ll have to decide between a gunite, vinyl liner, or fiberglass pool. It is very important to make sure your pool contract shows what material you and your pool contractor in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania agreed upon. Especially since each material varies in cost, but if you’ve never built a new pool it could be difficult to determine what material will work best for your short-term and long-term outdoor living goals.

When selecting materials for your new pool, you should carefully consider safety, durability, comfort, and appearance. Since each pool material has its own pros and cons it can be difficult to understand what will actually work best for your new space. But, ultimately your decision will depend on your budget, vision, and backyard. This is why it is important to have a partner that can help you consider how your decision will impact crucial things like ongoing maintenance for your new pool, long-term upkeep, your budget, and more.

  • Know exactly who will be responsible for building your new pool
