M.E. Contracting is widely recognized as one of the GTA’s premier landscaping design & construction company and we have the hardware to prove.

Fiberglass Pools Design & Construction Process

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:

Consultation

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.

Design

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.

Estimate

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.

Permits

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.

Construction

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

They were able to come up with a wonderful design that enhances some unusual small pieces of land that we have in front of our house. The result was a very attractive garden with additional flourishes like trellises and large planter urns that enhanced our front entrance.

We had a small space to work with, a lot of specific objectives and changed our minds a couple of times on the ultimate plan. The team executed the plans extremely well and in a very short period of time. We would not hesitate to use ME again.

FIBERGLASS POOL BUILDING FAQS

Since fiberglass pools are built to stand the test of time, if you choose fiberglass you’ll be making an investment in a gift that gives back to your home with wonderful memories for decades to come. Want to find out more? We’ve put together answers to some of our commonly asked questions about Fiberglass pools below.

What are the "pros and cons" of fiberglass pools compared to other types?

There are many “pros” to fiberglass pools:

  • Fiberglass pools have a slightly higher upfront cost than vinyl but are still less expensive than concrete installation.
  • Fiberglass pools often come with unique built-in features, such as stairs and seats.
  • Fiberglass pool surface is flexible and crack-resistant and is less prone to algae growth.
  • Fiberglass pools have a lower maintenance cost and, if properly installed and maintained, can last over 30 years.

These are the “cons”:

  • Since Fiberglass pools are made as shells and then installed, they come in a limited number of pre-designed shapes and sizes, which means that they are less customizable than other types of pools.
  • While Fiberglass pools require less chemical treatment, the PH balance of the water is more delicate than other pool types.

How long do Fiberglass pools last?

Fiberglass pools can easily last for over 30 years! Beyond this, they are also durable, resistant to damage, flexible and crack-proof and are one of the lowest maintenance pool options on the market. These unique advantages come from the design and building techniques of fiberglass.
M.E Contracting specializes in seamless custom pool design. If the longevity and quality of Fiberglass pools entice you, we can find the perfect one for you!

What is the cost of maintaining fiberglass pools?

Fiberglass pools have some of the lowest long-term maintenance costs. Fiberglass doesn’t require the brushing, skimming and chemical treatments common with other pool types. They are also less porous, which means they are less likely to accumulate algae. This is primarily because of the gel coating that covers the fiberglass finish.

Fiberglass pools do require gel coating replacements, approximately every fifteen years. This makes Fiberglass cost-effective long term options requiring significantly less maintenance than some other options.

Do fiberglass pools crack?

Fiberglass pools rarely crack!
This is because the fiberglass pool is manufactured as one single-piece shell and coated with a gel-coating.
The construction process of the fiberglass shell creates a thinner and more flexible pool, that is resistant to cracking.
