How do I select the right pool builder?
The most important rule to consider is the company’s reputation in the community. Ask your neighbor, a friend or a family member. We ask you to consider these facts about Rose Pool & Patio:
- We have been building pools since 1958 and have installed over 1,200 inground pools.
- We have built 2 pools for 43 individuals (and 3 pools for another)
- We have built 2 or more pools for 37 families (father-son, mother-daughter, etc.). This list includes: 5 pools for one family, 4 pools for two additional families, pools for two sets of 3 brothers, pools for one set of twins, and last year, our first grandfather-grandson combination. Families trust us and come back to our business, time and time again.
- We have built numerous pools for neighbors who live side-by-side. In one Sunbury neighborhood, we constructed pools for 5 neighbors in a row (and 2 more for neighbors across the street). We also have a continuous 5-pool neighborhood in Danville!
If you would like to know why so many families and friends have returned to us, please call to schedule an appointment. Beyond just giving you a price, we will take the time to explain HOW a Rose pool is constructed.
What does Rose Pool & Patio build and what doesn’t it build?
We offer quality inground vinyl pools with concrete reinforced noncorrosive resin walls. Design and technical options are available to give your pool the beautiful aesthetics and ease of use comparable to a more expensive concrete pool. We can build just the pool or we can recommend and work with a landscape contractor as a “turnkey” project to turn your backyard into a beautiful resort.
We do not install above ground pools. We do not install spas, except as an accessory to our pool.
How much work is involved in owning and caring for a swimming pool?
No pool is completely maintenance-free. Certainly there are many automated maintenance and cleaning options available. We offer an exclusive tetraborate chemical system and our retail store is equipped to test and solve any water problem. This testing is free. The customer should expect to spend (depending on the pool’s location) up to 30 minutes a week maintaining their pool. If you do not have the time to do this, Rose Pool & Patio offers a weekly Pool Maintenance Program.
Will a pool increase the value of my home and property?
Pool Trade Association studies suggest that a pool will increase the value of a home between 7% and 15% depending on location. And it may increase in value over time, like your home, if maintained. However, it may limit the resell potential of your property; some buyers may not want a pool. If selling your home is a future consideration, there are some features you may want to consider when you build the pool. We can discuss these with you.
Why do cost estimates vary when pools seem to be the same?
The price of a pool is determined by much more than just the size and shape of the pool. Some important points to consider include:
- Quality of materials
- Design expertise
- Underground strength and durability
- Customer service
- Time required for construction
Rose Pool & Patio’s estimate includes materials that we have used for many years. We will not “field test” a new or less expensive product on your pool. Your pool will be built by a member of the Rose family. We are a three generation company and pride ourselves on knowing our customers personally. We are responsible for every facet of the pool construction and we pay and give benefits to our staff directly. Our people are well-trained and have been with us for many years. We believe our price is reasonable in order to build a quality pool for you and to allow us to remain in business for another 50 years.
Is financing available for this type of project?
Yes — and receiving financing is probably easier than you think. You can give your family a beautiful new pool by merely taking the equity out of your home and converting it to cash. Rose Pool & Patio works with several local banks but your own bank can also provide this service. You can combine your pool financing to generate additional funds for other home improvement projects or to pay off high interest loans or credit card debt. And it’s tax-wise: every dollar of interest you pay can be taken as a direct deduction from your taxable income. Please consult a tax professional for more information about gaining access to these tax benefits.
Service is our most important commitment to our pool owners: it is our first priority. If problems do occur, you want it fixed. Our oldest and most important rule is this: we will respond within 24 hours after you notify us of a problem or we will let you know exactly our schedule for repair.
We will perform a full range of services. We open and/or close pools on a regular basis. We replace the vinyl liner after its regular life and retrofit pools if new products become available. We establish an easy-to-follow chemical regime to keep your pool crystal clear and easy to maintain. We can offer a weekly Pool Maintenance Program to do the work for you. Our service and maintenance technicians are well trained and have worked for us from 6-15 years.
Unfortunately, we only have time to service and maintain our own pools.
I have a small or difficult yard to work with. Can I still have a pool?
We have constructed quality pools in yards of all sizes and elevations. We have a design system that has supported decks and even pools on steep hillsides. And we have used innovative solutions to turn a small backyard into an outdoor resort. Call us. Our advice is free.
