Since the COVID-19, the new normal has families spending more time at home. Which is why the swimming pool industry is booming. While the process of having a new swimming pool built in your backyard can seem overwhelming, the team at Dreamscapes Pools and Spas makes it easy and fun.
Many of our clients come to us with questions related to construction, design, and cost. We want to share some of those questions and answers.
How is a concrete (Gunite) swimming pool constructed?
In-ground concrete swimming pools are constructed on site from a combination of plaster, steel, and concrete. The initial excavation takes place first, then steel rebar is bent and tied into place.
Next comes the concrete, which is either shot or poured into place, forming the pool itself. Then the coping and tile work are completed and finally the plaster finish is troweled, along with the finishing touches.
I don’t want to get ripped off, so how do I find a reputable contractor?
The swimming pool contractor makes all the difference. Choosing the right one means a solid investment and years of great memories. Choosing the wrong one can mean a lot of frustration and headaches.
There are a lot of fly by night companies in the swimming pool industry, don’t get taken. A reputable company will have pictures of their previous work as well as references. Make sure they are properly licensed and insured. Also, make sure you understand everything included in your warranties, there will probably be different manufacturers involved.

Support and warranties are another thing to think about. When choosing a swimming pool contractor, it is important they have substantial longevity. After all, their customer service guarantee and warranties aren’t good if the company is no longer in business.
