Are you considering adding a swimming pool to your home? Exciting times lie ahead as you embark on this journey to enhance your property and lifestyle. However, one of the most common questions that arise during this process is, “How long does it take to build a swimming pool?” Fear not, as we at Royal Pools are here to guide you through the timeline of pool construction, from inception to completion. Let’s dive in!

1. Meet with a Designer: Bringing Your Vision to Life

The journey begins with a collaborative meeting with our highly qualified design professionals. Whether you have a clear vision in mind or need some inspiration, our team will work closely with you to understand your preferences, budget, and requirements. During this phase, expect an exchange of ideas and expert guidance to design the perfect swimming pool for your home.

2. Design, Engineering, and Planning: Laying the Foundation

After the initial meeting, we delve into the design, engineering, and planning phase. Within 3 to 4 weeks of processing the contract, we schedule a Pre Plan Meeting (PPM) at your home. This crucial gathering involves key stakeholders, including your designer, our General Manager, lead draftsperson, and construction superintendent. Here, we discuss the logistics and intricacies of building your dream pool, ensuring clarity and transparency throughout the process.

3. Permits: Navigating Regulatory Channels

Once the design is finalized, it’s time to navigate the regulatory channels for permits. Typically, within 6 to 7 weeks after the PPM, we’re ready to submit your plan to the relevant building department, be it your municipality or county jurisdiction. However, it’s essential to note that approval timeframes vary widely, with an average of 3 to 6 months for your plan to pass through the building department’s scrutiny. Patience is key during this phase as we work diligently to secure the necessary approvals.

4. Construction: Turning Vision into Reality

Now comes the exciting part – construction! As you witness your dream pool taking shape, it’s essential to understand the various phases involved and the specialized subcontractors employed for each task. From excavation to plumbing, electrical work to finishing touches, every step is meticulously executed to ensure quality and craftsmanship. Throughout the construction process, you’ll have an onsite construction superintendent overseeing operations, along with a dedicated construction coordinator at our office. Their role is to keep you informed about the progress, schedules, and inspection timelines, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free experience.

In conclusion, the timeline for building a swimming pool can vary depending on various factors, including design complexity, permit approval, and weather conditions. However, with Royal Pools by your side, you can rest assured that your dream pool will become a reality, seamlessly blending aesthetics, functionality, and quality craftsmanship.
