Where do I start in selecting the right pool builder?
Interview your prospective builder carefully. What is his/her reputation, have you seen any of his/her work? Do you know a friend or neighbor who has used the same company with good results? What is his/her standing with your local Building Department, the Better Business Council, local chapter for the NSPI and the Home Builders Association? Do you feel he/she will treat your property with respect? At Seasonal World, customer service is our first priority for our entire staff. We believe our expertise in construction, experience in all types of challenges, and effort to provide superior service to all our customers is unmatched in the pool industry.
What type of financing is available for this type of project?
The addition of a swimming pool is considered a "home improvement." When completed, your pool project will add substantial value to your property. A beautifully designed and well-built Seasonal World pool is also an asset when you decide to sell your home. Another consideration regarding financing is the probability that all of the interest costs on the loan will be tax-deductible, which helps to reduce the actual cost of the investment. At Seasonal World, we provide you with information and assistance in obtaining easy financing for your swimming pool project. We also offer "NO EQUITY" home improvement loans with no money down and monthly payments starting as low as $106.00 per month.
I receive advertisements in the mail that promise pools at seemingly low prices. Can I really buy a pool like this?
The answer is yes. If equipment, structural construction, craftsmanship, and design are compromised, these "seemingly inexpensive pools" can be built for the advertised price. However, the old statement is still true, you get what you pay for. Our design staff will itemize your pool proposal so you can see what you are paying for. Depend on Seasonal World to help you determine a budget and secure financing that will be satisfactory to you. We will then design a quality pool to fit your needs that will provide years of enjoyment and relaxed living.
Why do estimates from companies vary when pools seem to be the same?
Many factors such as size, water features, decking, etc., create the total construction cost of your outdoor entertainment area. Other important factors affecting the cost are not visible on a printed estimate. If craftsmanship, quality materials, design, underground strength and durability, customer service, prompt construction, and outstanding warranties are important to you, then Seasonal World should be your contractor. Remember, you will get what you pay for.
What if I have a small or difficult yard to work with?
Unique yards are creative challenges. Seasonal World constructs pools in all sizes. Our experienced design and construction staff can handle the most challenging properties. You will be astonished at how our creative ideas can transform your backyard into a personal entertainment center and bring your dreams to life. Before you give up on that small yard, call us for design advice today! Our expertise and judgment are free!
How should I choose the design for my pool?
At your request, one of our designers will meet with you at your home to discuss your needs and desires. You will be asked specific questions such as how do you intend to use your pool. Is exercise important? What about family use? Where is the optimal view in relation to the landscape? Your input from this interview along with photographs, videos, and other sources will help your designer prepare a truly custom design...a design to fit your needs, your budget and transform your backyard to your own entertainment center! Remember that the future sale of your home depends on receiving a "WOW" when showing your pool. Pools are common in Tri-State area. To achieve maximum return for your investment, see the designers at Seasonal World!
What affects the cost of my swimming pool?
Surprisingly, the design does not affect the price of the pool. Seasonal World will show you how a properly designed swimming pool will greatly increase the value of your property and not be a "lead weight" if you decide to sell your home. Some changes will occur based on the ease of access, demolition needs prior to building the pool, and local permit costs. The size of the pool is a factor in cost, but surprisingly not the greatest. Much of the variation in cost will be based on products that you may add such as self-cleaning, etc. The size and materials used in decks, water features, retaining walls, landscaping and many other features can also affect the price.
What additional options are available to add to my pool?
With technology changing at an unbelievable speed in all phases of our lives, swimming pools are no exceptions. Innovative water purification systems, underwater color lighting, interior finishes, remote controls, built-in cleaning systems, and many other options are available to make your pool ownership easier and more enjoyable. Allow us to review these options with you and propose a pool that will offer a 99% maintenance free pool for you and your family to enjoy.
What about warranties?
At Seasonal World we provide you with documented warranties for each product on your pool that far exceeds the industry standard. We are confident in the pools we build and we offer a warranty that backs up our confidence. You should always ask for and compare the warranties when requesting estimates from builders. We build our pools to last and we will be here to stand behind our product in the future. Warranties are very important.
How much work is involved in owning and caring for a swimming pool?
With today's conveniences, owning a swimming pool is easier than owning a car! Pool chemical testing and maintenance, pool cleaning, and even pre-programmed filtration and heating can be automated if you wish to include these options in your construction. Paramount’s Vanquish patented self cleaning system will make your pool a pleasure to maintain. Your only concern will be finding more time to enjoy your pool. Be sure to ask our designers about these products and others.
