M.E. Contracting’s success is in large part a result of us insisting on excellent communication and transparency with the client.
When we work on any pool design and construction project we employ a simple yet effective step by step process to ensure the client & M.E. Contracting team are on the same page.
Our process can be broken down to the following steps:
Each and every prospective client will first have a “discovery” conversation with the project manager to discuss the general aspects of the project.
Once we understand the project’s general outline we will schedule an on-premise consultation.
At the time of consultation the project manager will meet with the home owners, learn about the client’s “ideal project”, their “must-have”, their ideas, needs and the budget they have.
We will take notes, pictures and measurements. We will exchange ideas then use the information collected to create an estimate to match the family’s lifestyle, needs and budget.
M.E. Contracting’s project manager will use the notes, measurements and pictures he took at the initial consultation to create a perliminary design.
The design will take into consideration all aspects: structures, grading, existing trees, client’s needs, budget etc.
Once the initial design is complete, the client will be presented with the layout where they are encouraged to provide feedback so a final revision can be prepared for quoting.
Once the initial “rough” design has been agreed upon we will again meet with the client to discuss the various elements that go into the project such as materials, colour options etc.
We will develop the estimate accordingly and schedule a meeting to present and discuss the estimate with the client.
Once the final estimate is approved we will start working on the permit.
Each city or municipality has its own requirements, bylaws etc. therefore time to receive the permit can vary greatly.
Once ready to go, M.E. Contracting will schedule the construction of the project, prepare the crews, machinery, materials etc.
We will have a foreman, a project manager and the landscaping designer all working together to stay true to the design, timeline and budget
The wonderful thing about a concrete pool is that the design elements are completely defined by the dreams of the pool owners, and their unique requirements. Unlike fiberglass pools, which are prefabricated in factories, concrete pools are designed and constructed on site. This means that you see your pool getting made the way you want it, in real time.
As a family run company, we understand that pools build memories for ourselves and our loved ones. Our integrity, commitment to quality and experience is the first thing we strive for when building a pool for your family. We wouldn’t design a pool for you that we wouldn’t put in our own backyard. In fact, M.E Contracting’s founders, Karen and Eitan Abu have a concrete pool in their own backyard.
If you know a concrete pool is right for you, we’re ready to help you make that dream come true. If you are still looking around- no problem! We’d be happy to tell you all about our various options for pool construction. We’d also love to invite you to our 7,000 sq ft luxury landscaping showroom, where you can see, explore and feel our designs. Regardless of your choice, M.E. Contracting will ensure you get the perfect pool for you!
Let us help you make your memories of summer beautiful, with a timeless and elegantly constructed concrete pool.
Below you will find some of our most frequently asked questions.
Concrete pools will likely require refinishing, and resurfacing over their lifetime, but with proper care and maintenance, they can last up to twenty years! When adding this to their durability and limitless customization, a concrete pool is one of the most stylish and adaptable pools one can invest in.
Concrete pools are durable, but even the heartiest of concrete pools may crack. This might be because of foundation changes in the ground the pool is installed in. That said, there are a number of safe solutions for concrete pool cracks that can maintain the longevity and enjoyment of your pool.
The adaptability and versatility of concrete pools cannot be understated. They can accommodate almost any custom shape and size and adapt to many special features. That said, concrete pools require more long-term maintenance and upkeep costs. These pools need to be resurfaced every ten to fifteen years, and require regular cleaning, as the porous surface of the concrete may allow algae growth. With proper chemical treatment, this can be lessened. Concrete pools can also come with higher heating costs.
If your dream pool is a unique design or style, or your space is unique, concrete pools may still be the most optimal choice for you. If that’s the case, M.E contracting and their combined decades of experience can work within your specifications to craft you a beautiful and perfect concrete pool
