Hopefully, our FAQ page will answer them, although, we still invite you to contact us for an honest and relaxed discussion on how Waterside Poolscapes is the right choice for building your dream pool. Below are some of the common questions asked by homeowners when considering their new swimming pool.
HOW MUCH DOES A POOL COST?
The cost of a swimming pool widely varies and is largely based on the choices you make regarding the size of the pool and the finishing touches such as the type of decking or interior look you desire as well as any water features. An accurate estimate is obtained when one of our knowledgeable pool professionals consult with you at your home, determine your design preferences and combine that with your lots terrain and size. It is nearly impossible to give you an accurate quote via email without knowing more about your property’s characteristics.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BUILD MY POOL?
Designing the pool of your dreams may take some time, however this is based upon how elaborate of vision you have for your backyard. If permits or approvals from your city or HOA are necessary than that process can take up to 30 days. Typical installation can be completed within 4 to 6 weeks after the initial dig. Time varies depending on the features that you include in your pool as well as if any inclement weather occurs during construction.
DO YOU OFFER FINANCING?
Whether you are installing a new pool or renovating, there are many financial institutions in the Houston area that can approve loans and make the cost of a pool more affordable. We can give you a list of finance options that we have worked with in the past.
IS IT HARD TO MAINTAIN A POOL?

WHY ARE QUOTES FOR A NEW POOL SO DIFFERENT FROM COMPANY TO COMPANY?
Some pool companies advertise lower prices because they are giving you a lesser product. While the design may even seem identical when comparing two companies, be aware to look for the company that is cutting corners to make their price lower. These companies may use cheaper materials, lower quality equipment and may not reinforce the pool structure or deck as much as necessary. There are many ways for companies to build you a less costly pool initially but in the long run the poor quality is more expensive.
