LAYOUT AND EXCAVATION
The process begins with layout based on the design specifications you chose. We then excavate the designated area for the size and shape of your pool.
FORMING AND PLUMBING
We form the shape of the pool and the walls. We install conduit for underwater lights all the plumbing for water filtration, circulation and in floor cleaning if specified in the plans.
4" to 8" of gravel is placed over the entire bottom of the pool.
STEEL REBAR GRID
Steel rebar reinforcing grid is installed 12” on center through out the pool. The bond grid is installed and the floor of the pool is placed.
The walls, steps, bench seats, swim out, bar stools, sun bench or other features are placed and shaped per your pool design specifications. The Gunite is hand trimmed and finished. Just one of the many details that make the Classic Pool construction process differ from other builders in the area.
TILE AND COPING
Careful attention is paid by hand finishing the top edge and face of the pool wall to provide a smooth and level surface to install the tile and coping. Proper preparation is critical at this point. Tile and coping is then installed. These are the first of your personally selected finishes on your pool.
INSTALLING THE DECK AND PATIO
The deck will be formed according to your design plan. Gravel and reinforcement will be carefully placed to ensure your deck is durable and has the finish you selected. Optional pavers are installed according to their specific specifications.
INTERIOR FINISHWhite marcite plaster provides a smooth durable finish and is our standard finish. Optional finishes include polished marble in many colors that will give your pool an even more custom look. Ask to see our color charts.
