Not All Pool Designers Are Alike
While a pool is quite a valuable addition to your home, not all pools are created alike; in fact who you choose to build your custom pool can make or break the experience for you. Google “custom pools in The Woodlands” and you will see you have plenty of options to choose from. What you will find however if you ask any Mitchell Custom Pools customer; is that we are the company to beat when it comes to our pools. It probably stems from the fact that we don’t just design a pool for you, we get into the deeper questions of why you want a pool, what you expect from it, and how you plan to maintain it. We care about our customers and from the initial consultation we are always several steps ahead. We are envisioning how your pool is going to look, how you are using it, and the memories you will make. We roll all that into every step in the process and base our decisions on those factors. The fact is, The Woodlands residents have chosen us over other companies for years and there are numerous reasons why.
We Ask The Important Questions
If we had no scruples, sure we could just build you a pool because you want to keep up with the neighbors or because you have a whim and impulsively decide to build a pool without considering the upkeep. We do have our core values though, and one of them is integrity. We want you to make sure you are making a well informed decision when you choose purchase a Mitchell custom pool, so we ask you a series of questions to get to the end product that suits your needs and wants perfectly.
Why Do You Want A Pool?
This is one of the most important lead off questions you should ask yourself and your family, as it can really reveal to you if a pool is a lasting desire or a fleeting impulse. Many buyers fail to inform themselves on the cost of maintenance, what could go wrong, the utility bill impact, and the importance of having a quality design. You also need to take into consideration what you plan to do with this investment. Do you plan on using it for laps or water sports? Are you using it mainly for aqua therapy and leisure for your family, or for large pool parties? We ask you these questions not to dissuade you, but to know that if you decide to go to the next step and agree to buy a custom pool, it is a well thought out decision that you will be happy with for the life of your pool. We don’t believe in buyer’s remorse at Mitchell, because we only build for informed customers.
What Type Of Pool Do You Want?
Now that you have decided soundly on purchasing a pool, this next question is where the answers from before come in handy. For example let’s say you want the pool primarily for laps. A lap pool is primarily one large rectangle and doesn’t have any round corners or curves; it is strictly for laps but can also double as a pool for water sports such as water volleyball. There are many styles and features to choose from if going with a mixed use pool. Rock features such as slides, grottos, or stone hot tubs and surrounded fire pits can add a unique flair to your custom pool. Finishes and accents are another thing you need to consider. We can finish pools with traditional plaster, but there are all kinds of upgrades such as pebble aggregate, stone, and other finishes that can add a touch of luxury to your surface. Other options include water features such as spouts, fountains and sprayers, all of these are multipurpose in that they help cool the water during the summer and also create a visual experience.
What Is Your Budget?
Sure, in your mind you can come up with a wish list for your pool design that would rival the pools of any of the Houston Texans players. The reality is, what you can afford, can be starkly less than what you want. We walk you through the cost of many different finishes, features and how the size of the pool affects the price. We help you trim down your wish list enough to meet your budget but also still deliver a pool that you will love. Keep in mind that while the main structure of your pool cannot be changed once built, there are always features you can add on later that can enhance the surroundings of your pool. Features such as rock slides, waterfalls and fire pits on the deck can be added at a later date when your budget allows.
How Will You Maintain Your Pool?
Maintaining a pool can be a labor intensive process that you never get a break from. Checking chlorine levels, adding bromine to the hot tub, servicing pumps, heaters and pool vacuums can lead to burn out with your pool quite quickly, especially on those 103° summer days. A pool that is lacking in maintenance, especially proper cleaning and chemical treatment, will get nasty really quick. No one wants to swim in a cloudy green, algae plagued pool, as well you shouldn’t; it’s dangerous! So bearing in mind that you must keep pH levels in check, chemical levels, and scrub the pool surface for algae, is this a task you are really able to keep up with weekly or more? For most the answer is a resounding no, this is where factoring the cost of a pool service into your recurring expenses comes into play. We provide excellent maintenance plans that keep your pool sparkling clean and fresh year round, and take the burden of maintenance off your shoulders so you can enjoy your pool. If you do choose to go the DIY route, make sure you do your homework as the chemicals used to keep a pool healthy can be dangerous if you aren’t careful in handling them.
We Have The Technology
Mitchell Custom Pools is a big believer in using the latest in state-of-the-art technology in every step of the build process. Once we find out the way you envision your pool, our designers get to work using high end 3-D modeling workstations to create a 3-D rendering of your finished pool and surrounding decking and any other options. It is like looking at a photograph of your new paradise in your backyard. Our use of technology doesn’t stop there, our builds can include features such as high intensity LED lighting, remote control of your pool, in pool audio systems with speakers built into rock features, and more. We even have some pools that have automatic doors that connect indoor pools to an outdoor pool. The possibilities with new pool tech are endless and we love using the latest and greatest pool features we find at the yearly Pool, Spa & Patio Expo in Las Vegas.
Our Attention To Detail Is Our Strength
Some pool builders will finish a pool and notice subtle imperfections in seals, decking or misaligned jets for example, and if it doesn’t look “too bad,” they will leave it as is. Our attention to detail is borderline OCD, and we aren’t joking. The way we have earned a reputation as the top pool construction company in the region is simply because we strive for nothing less than perfection. We achieve that with our careful planning, sourcing premium materials, hiring the most talented labor, and using technology to our advantage in the design process to avoid any errors. We are not naïve in realizing that sometimes mistakes happen, but if it does, we not only own it, but we make it right and go above and beyond to give our clients 100% satisfaction. We don’t just design pools; we design your paradise, down to the smallest detail.
