The Design and Build Process
Meet and Generate Ideas
During our design consultation, we listen to your ideas and desires for your new pool. We will be sharing suggestions for the design, decking, backyard accents, pool safety, and so on based upon your ideas and our years of experience.
Should We Earn Your Business
Within about two business weeks (depending upon the complexity of the project and market demand) and after our initial design meeting, we will email you the Professional 2D and 3D project drawing, as well as a very detailed line-item quotation.
The 2D has all of the details and the dimensions. The 3D one is artistic in concept. These designs will allow us to answer any questions you may have and make any changes you may request based upon your review and feedback.
We will complete one design revision upon request at no additional fee (additional design revisions are $150.00 each, unless we have a written commitment that we will be your pool builder of choice).
Expedited Design Service: If you would like the drawing and detailed quotation expedited within 4 to 5 business days after our initial meeting takes place, we can do this for a $500.00 upfront expedited design fee, due at the time of our initial meeting. If we earn your business, we will be returning the $250.00 of this expedited design fee during the first project phase payment.
Earning Your Business
Should you choose Innovative Pools Inc. as your professional licensed pool builder, we will be emailing you a DocuSign contract packet to be signed and initialed electronically. Once we get it back, we will be preparing all applicable county, city, or architectural review board paperwork as a requirement for permitting the project. We prepare all county/city permits and HOA submissions and pay for HOA review fees up to $100.00. The contract packet also includes a list of pre-construction to-do items (gas, irrigation, access, clearing of the work area, termite bond, fence removal, etc.).
We do not accept any upfront project deposits and are the only accredited pool builder in the area that employs this business practice. Invoicing will be done throughout the project based upon contractually agreed upon completed stages of construction. With this business method, we are never paid ahead on your project. The financial risk resides with us. That is just one of the many details that set us apart in the industry.
We will have a specific start week date for your project. Our team will also provide you a technique and timeline document detailing our process of building.
Select your pool decking, pool coping, pool tile, and pool interior finish using our refined, fast, and straightforward process. Tracee, our vice president, coordinates this process with you, our client.
The construction process will last from 12 to 16 weeks. It depends on the actual project scope, including any related weather, material, and possible personnel delays.
Pool Orientation/Post Water Fill 30-Day Service Included
Our licensed and professional service team teaches you the proper operation and maintenance procedures for your pool and schedules this within two weeks after project completion. We will also provide you with a custom binder that details the specifics, containing all applicable owner manuals. Our service team will do the work twice a week for 30 days after the initial startup.
