You have probably heard some wonderful things about Fiberglass pools, and with good reason! Fiberglass pools are high quality, very durable, algae resistant, flexible and crack-resistance, and known for their longevity and seamlessly beautiful style.

M.E. Contracting is widely recognized as one of the GTA’s premier landscaping design & construction company and we have the hardware to prove.
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
There are many things that make fiberglass pools unique. Unlike concrete pools which need to be built or constructed on location, Fiberglass pools are single unit “shells”, constructed in factories and then installed on the property. Due to the way it is constructed, fiberglass provides added flexibility, which means that these pools are especially crack resistant. The single-shell Fiberglass units are specially treated with a gel-coating that keeps the surfaces smooth and the algae resistant.
M.E Contracting is a family run company with decades of combined professional experience for designing exceptional quality pools of all types. We love building and installing fiberglass pools because they provide such excellent value and quality performance for our clients.
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.
There are many “pros” to fiberglass pools:
These are the “cons”:
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!
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.
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.
