How does one pay for a pool?
Very few people have the cash on hand to finance the project. Most customers finance some or the whole amount of the project. The payment plan is normally a four (4) draw schedule at set stages of pool completion.
Do you offer financing?
We do not offer in-house financing, but have third party companies that specialize in pool loans. The financing of the project is the responsibility of the homeowner, and we recommend you get your own financing, that way you are in control of dispersing the funds. We advise you not to finance with the same pool builder, since you have no recourse once you have signed the bottom line.
