Building Your New Pool
Days and nights spent poolside can make you feel like you’re on a long-term vacation.
A pool can help you create happy memories and value to your home. Our pool construction services will help you extend that stress-free feeling by including features like automatic pool cleaners as well as simple maintenance programs that make pool ownership easier than ever. We feel it is important for you to understand the process that is involved so you know exactly what to expect each step of the way.
1. Layout Your Yard
The area of your yard where you want to pool located is measured and marked. If you need help designing the layout, our experienced staff is ready to help. Buddy's Pool has over 35 years of experience serving the Baltimore area.
2. Excavation and Landscape Preparation
The excavator digs the hole and the dirt may be used for either landscaping on property or hauled off site.
3. Installing the Plumbing and Steel
The reinforcing steel rods, PVC pipes and fittings that make up the circulation system to your spa jets, waterfalls and any other special items that you’ve chosen to customize your pool are carefully installed and tested.
4. Building the Swimming Pool Shell
To form the shell of your pool, a special mixture of concrete is applied and finished by our experienced team of craftsmen. This special shell is called "shotcrete".
5. Installing the Pool Custom Tile and Coping
Buddy’s installs a band of acid-proof, double-fired pool tile typically six-inch in height. It’s critically important that highly experienced craftsmen handle the tile work because errors in tile are instantly visible.
6. Building the Pool Decking
Now that the structure is complete, it’s time to form the framework for your deck. An appropriate stone base will be laid, readying the area for the deck material you have chosen. Then, Buddy’s deck crew will install your new deck.
7. Installing the Swimming Pool Utilities and Equipment
The licensed professional electric contractors at Buddy’s carefully make all the electrical connections for your pool. The lights are installed, the pumps are wired and electrical breakers are installed. If your pool or spa package includes a heater, Buddy’s will help you choose and install the best heater for your needs.
8. Adding the Interior finish
A mixture of crushed marble and cement will be hand-toweled over the surface of your pool to produce a smooth finish.
9. Fill the Pool and Enjoy
The final step of the process… Just add water!
Let Buddy's Pool help you make your dream a reality.
