YOU HAVE QUESTIONS - WE HAVE ANSWERS!
We know you have many questions to consider before moving forward with designing and building a pool. Our experienced team of professionals are standing by to answer any questions you may have that are not covered below. Feel free to contact us with any additional questions you may have.
How much do swimming pools cost?
The cost of a swimming pool varies tremendously but is largely a factor of the choices you make - the size
and depth of the pool, the decking, the interior finish, lighting, landscaping. And, there are some factors
beyond our control such as construction equipment access issues, and the availability and cost of any special
materials we need to build your pool. You can have a great pool for as little as $15,000 or a monument to high
technology for upwards of $100,000. Most are in the neighborhood of $25,000-$35,000. The good news is that
you can control most of the costs and that whatever you spend, it will increase the value of your home.

How long does it take to build a swimming pool?
Most pools are built in two to three months. The exact amount of time depends on a great many different factors,
some of which are beyond our control unusual site conditions, the permitting process, and sometimes the weather.
And, of course, the concrete for the shell and the decking material needs to cure and set. D
esigning and building a quality swimming pool takes time. That's one thing 45
years of experience has taught
us. But our experience has also taught us how to do it as carefully and as quickly as possible.

What options are available when building a swimming pool?
You'll have plenty of choices - size and shape, decking material and design, pool interior finish, cleaning and filtering systems, heating systems, landscaping, steps and swim-outs and lights, rock work, spas and fountains - whatever you can imagine, whatever you want, we can build.

Is there much maintenance with a swimming pool?
Like every mechanical device, a swimming pool needs to be cared for and maintained. But it's not complicated. Today's cleaning systems are very low-maintenance so you just need to follow a few simple steps to keep your pool clean, clear and safe. When we finish your pool, we'll outline a complete pool care program. It's something you can do yourself easily enough, but if you'd like us to take care of it for you, we can do that. We have a service department that will take care of everything - cleaning, brushing, chemicals, maintenance - for a small monthly fee. Call our service department at 885-6723 and ask about our different service plans.Go to Top
Can I finance the cost of the pool?
Yes. Patio Pools has many financing options that will help you get the pool you want for the monthly budget you have. Interest rates are surprisingly attractive right now, so this is a good time to consider financing your pool. To complete an on-line application, see our financing

Why are some pool companies so much less than other companies?
Some pool companies can advertise lower prices because they're giving you a lesser product. You might not be able to notice inferior quality for a few years, but there is a difference. These "cheaper" pool companies use cheaper materials, transient and often poorly trained crews, and lower quality mechanical equipment and cleaning systems. They skimp on the amount of concrete and reinforcing steels bars in the pool shell and they build a less substantial deck. There are lots of ways for them to save money and build you a "cheaper" pool. But in the long run, it's not cheaper at all. Poor quality is always, sooner or later, expensive and a mistake.
The fact is, a Patio Pool will be the best quality and the best value, at any budget. If you want to save money, we'll show you how, but we won't build you an inferior pool. We never have.Go to Top
