The discovery phase the first step in the process of building a pool. It is all about thinking about what you want from your pool and what the current and future needs of your family may be.
After the consultation, we will begin the design process. We will take all of the information gathered during our time together and start creating your design. We will then present the design to you for your feedback. We believe that an at-home consultation is essential for
creating a pool that you will love for years to come. It allows us to get to know you and your needs, and to create a design that is specifically tailored to your home and lifestyle. "Learn More!"
Once the pre-construction prep is complete, the next step is to excavate the area for your pool. The time it takes to dig the area for your pool will depend on a lot of factors, including the size and depth of the pool, access to the site, and soil conditions. The average excavation takes 1 day to be completed.
If it rains or if there is rain in the forecast, this can also set back your pool build considerably. For instance, one day of rain doesn't mean that the construction process will only be a day behind. It can cause everything to come to a grinding halt for a few days or even a week, depending on the severity of the storm. But don't be discouraged. In order for things to be done correctly, the ground needs to be in tip-top shape, so any delay would be for your best interest in the long run. "Learn More!"
The stub-out phase is an important step in the pool building process. During this phase, the major components of the plumbing and electrical systems are installed through the wall and rebar. This ensures that the plumbing and electrical can be completed after the gunite process, without having to disturb the concrete.
The gunite process is an important step in the pool building process. in Houston or Cypress, It ensures that the pool shell is strong and durable, and it allows the pool to be completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. Once the steel frame is in place, it's time for the gunite process to begin. Gunite is a type of concrete that is sprayed onto the steel frame using a high-pressure hose. This creates a strong and durable shell that will form the foundation of your pool.
During the gunite process, it is important to keep the shell damp. This will help the concrete to cure properly and prevent it from cracking. Homeowners are typically given a "homework"
assignment to water the shell twice a day for up to 7 days. In addition to watering the shell, several holes will also be drilled into the concrete to relieve any pressure beneath the shell. This will help to prevent the shell from warping or cracking.
Clean Up As your poolscape gets closer to being swim-ready, there’s a good chance your
backyard will still look a bit disastrous. The clean-up crew will come to take care of any garbage and excess debris, especially if there is any in the way of where your decking will be poured.
The next step in the pool building process Houston or Cypress is to install the plumbing and electrical. This involves digging trenches for pipes and conduits, installing suction and return lines, vacuum cleaner lines, gas lines, water feature lines, and more (depending on the features you want for your pool). The electrical service line will also be installed.
This process typically takes 2 to 3 days to complete. It can be done before, during, or after the
steel frame is added. The timing will depend on the specific pool design and the preferences of the pool builder. The plumbing and electrical are important components of any pool. They ensure that the pool can be properly cleaned and maintained, and they also provide power for the pool's features.
Depending on a few factors, either our technicians or the plumbing and electrical technicians will hook up control panels, install lights, and get your pumps, heater and filter mounted and plumbed. Rocks, boulders, diving boards and other equipment will also be put into place at this time, if it’s in your pool design. This should take no longer than two days.
The next phase is the tile and coping phase, a process that will largely be responsible for setting the overall aesthetics of your poolscape in Katy or Magnolia Texas. Before any tiling or coping is
applied, the top of your gunite shell will be leveled, smoothed and sealed and then 6 inches of waterline tile will be applied. Your coping (usually consisting of brick, stone or another precast material) is then placed along the beam of the pool. When this stage is complete, you’ll be left with a beautiful and seemingly finished pool.
What to expect when building a pool in Houston or Cypress? With that unnecessary clutter out of the way, our qualified deck builders in Katy or Magnolia Texas will get hard to work piecing together the right deck for your outdoor living area. There are quite a few steps in this process, starting with the drainage: • A PVC pipe will be installed to drain water away from the gutters and the deck to a lower lying area of your property. • A layer of sand will be spread and formed on top of the ground (this will serve as a base for your deck). • Reinforced steel will be put into place (at this point a local inspector may be required to inspect and approve the deck). • Your deck will then be poured and expansion joints will be placed throughout to counteract ground movement and minimize cracking.
There are a lot of decking options out there, like pavers, concrete, tile, stone and so on. The amount of time it takes to complete the deck will depend on the surface material you choose, so expect it to take anywhere from a couple of days for basic concrete to several days or even a week for more intricate patterns and materials.
