Our Design and Construction Process

At B&B Custom Pools, we aim to produce one-of-a-kind creations that meet the specific needs of every client. Our process begins with an initial, no-cost consultation to discuss the specifications of your pool build, including design elements, pool features, and other items on your wish list. Customers have complete control over the design of their custom swimming pool. Our team of experts can recommend desirable options for slides, diving boards, water features, and adjacent in-ground hot tubs.

We render custom residential swimming pool designs using computer-assisted design software (CAD). Doing so helps speed up the design process and allows customers to envision how their finished project will look. Construction begins once we receive final approval from the client and determine which of our design partners best fulfills the requirements for the project.

The first step in construction involves meticulously mapping out the project so clients can easily visualize the dimensions of their new pool. Clients are encouraged to address questions that arise and expectations for the building process with the construction manager. After excavating the job site, the build process entails covering the pool floor with a crushed stone base, installing plumbing, and reinforcing the structure with a steel rebar cage for stability. Because we only build gunite shell pools, we create the highest quality concrete pools possible.

To complete our services, we inspect your new swimming pool, testing each structural element to ensure superior quality and longevity. Depending on the scope of your project, it typically takes six to eight weeks to finish constructing your new pool from when we receive the permits.

Other Design Elements and Considerations

To help make your new pool feel complete, we offer a wide range of additional design elements. Professional landscaping can ensure your pool blends seamlessly into your backyard environment. We work closely with clients to help them decide on the finishing touches, such as trees, shrubs, plants, flowers, and outdoor decor to integrate into their new backyard. Your finished product is up to you and can be as simple or ornate as you wish.

When adding a new pool to your property, an important consideration to keep in mind is approval. Before we begin constructing, our team handles securing all the necessary permits for building your pool. To make this process as hassle-free as possible for clients, we handle all the paperwork that building your pool involves.

We use qualified engineering firms for surveying and engineering work in townships requiring formal engineering plans and stormwater management calculations. Our knowledgeable staff ensures the completion of all the proper documentation and files it promptly, allowing us to begin construction on time.
