Why Choose Caribbean Pools for New Pool Construction?

Part of the challenge of getting a new pool involves choosing the right construction team for the job. You want to feel confident that you’re putting your project in good hands. At Caribbean Pools, you’ll work with an experienced team. We love what we do, whether it’s renovating a swimming pool or building a poolscape from scratch.

What to Expect During New Pool Construction

Installing a pool is a relatively straightforward process. There are the technological and electrical aspects, the excavation stage, landscaping, and design, along with some other steps. We manage all stages of the project and deliver precise results that uphold your expectations. 

If you are not familiar with the pool construction process, here is an overview to give you an idea of what to expect:

  • Initial Design. It all begins with a consultation. Our team wants to deliver the results you deserve, so we discuss your ideas with you. We work with our clients to design a poolscape that matches their family’s needs while making the most out of the yard space you have. For instance, are you searching for a larger pool for swimming? Or, would you like to keep it simple and have a small pool and larger patio so you can just relax? Let our designers know, and we’ll consider these aspects as we work up a design. 
  • Construction Work. Building an inground pool is an intricate construction project. There are many components included in a swimming pool: lighting, tiling, cement, electrical work, and more. Our team carefully tends to these aspects as we build up the landscaping around your pool. View the step by step process below:
  • May Take a Few Weeks. We work as efficiently as we can. However, expect the installation to take a few weeks in total. Weather delays, revisions, and other factors all impact the timeline. Know that we want you to be completely satisfied with the end results, so we believe taking the time to deliver quality work is best. 

Our pool contractors are happy to answer any questions you may have about the process.
