Like cars, guitars, and movie stars, not all backyard swimming pools are created equally. From the DIY above-ground frame and liner to the monstrosities you may have seen on MTV Cribs, one can only assume that there is also quite a lengthy continuum of the cost to build as well.

Even if you have already decided on your preferred construction material (we build exclusively “gunite” pools), there can be a significant price range from builder to builder. Can you swim in any old hole in the ground? Sure (and George Lazenby can play James Bond!), but the old adage is still true: You get what you pay for. Important considerations that can impact future costs or risk to your family and friends include:

  • Design, shape, and size
  • Craftsmanship
  • Structural elements and durability
  • Time required for construction
  • Equipment and water features
  • Warranties
  • Worker’s compensation and liability
  • Customer service

At Design Pool & Spa, the integrity of the product is never compromised, and yet our sales team is extremely adept at custom designing a pool to meet your budget! Regardless of your financial parameters, we are confident in our consistent end result: a beautiful and dependable pool that you can enjoy for years to come.
