Posted June 9, 2022 in 3D Design, Blog, Design/Build, General, Landscape Design, Pool, Videos, Water Feature

Investing in a new swimming pool in the Lehigh Valley is exciting! You can probably already picture relaxing with family and friends at your new swimming pool before you even get started. But, before you hire a pool contractor in the Lehigh Valley you should be able to visualize exactly what your new pool will look like, know how much it will cost, and understand what is included in the price – no surprises.

Here are some benefits of using a design/build firm for your new swimming pool in the Lehigh Valley:

  • Align the entire project team when building a new swimming pool in the Lehigh Valley

Swimming pool designs are a highly specialized field with technology and materials that are constantly changing and improving. Not only do you need a new swimming pool in the Lehigh Valley, but you will also need to obtain the right approvals for your new swimming pool, design the space around your new swimming pool, and know what is required to build a new swimming pool in your neighborhood. This is why it’s important to work with a partner who has experience with all different materials, pool contractors in the Lehigh Valley, townships, HOA’s, and more.

Our proven design/build process begins with a custom 3D design video and detailed timeline that lays the whole project out in one comprehensive master plan that is easy to follow and understand. This design-first approach and master plan aligns the entire team towards the common goal & vision while eliminating frustrations and potential mistakes that typically occur when working with a pool contractor in the Lehigh Valley.

  • Eliminate mistakes, change orders, and frustrations when building a new pool

Without one point of accountability and contact, a homeowner can become easily frustrated when building a new swimming pool. Budgets could quickly spiral out of control, designs could get misinterpreted, plans could be misread, and the wrong materials could be ordered.

When you partner with MasterPLAN to design and build your new swimming pool in the Lehigh Valley we eliminate the stress and hassle of every aspect of your project. We make transforming your backyard stress-free by handling all communication with your township or municipality, developing your plans, obtaining your building permits, managing any and all engineering, scheduling your inspections, etc.

Your dedicated designer will be in the field checking in with your construction specialist frequently and will provide detailed updates to you and your family every step of the way.

  • Save time, money, and space 

When making the commitment to pursue an inground swimming pool for your home, it is important to NOT choose the water feature first and then worry about everything else afterward. Chances are, you will be met with long lead times and higher prices if the surrounding space was an afterthought when building your new swimming pool. This is why it’s important to work with a partner who can help you select the right features, plans, and materials that work best with your lifestyle and outdoor living goals.
