Why are estimates different when the
pools appear to be the same?
Estimates can differ for various reasons. The hard costs of building a
pool are pretty much the same builder to builder. Labor costs can vary
depending whether the contractor uses sub-contractors or salaried employees. Materials and
support equipment (filters, pumps, lighting, etc.) can vary depending on the
manufacturer or supplier. The important factors are really the ones you can't
see. Attention to details, thoughtful design, time spent inspecting the
workmanship, quality control and relationships built over time with high quality
sub-contractors have a value to the customer and can be seen in the finished
product. We have learned over the past twenty years that in order to produce a
quality project for your family, we must use quality people and components in
the process. Remember, cheap work is never good, and good work is never cheap.
