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.

Below you will find some of our most frequently asked questions.
Yes, a well maintained and beautifully constructed in-ground pool can increase a home’s value by as much as 7%, especially in areas where pools are highly prized. We pride ourselves in delivering beautiful unbeatable quality in-ground concrete and fibreglass pools, along with custom-designed decks, railing and the wide variety of finishing touches that will make your outdoor space show-stopping! Not only will you love your pool, but your home will love it too.
It is hard to tell how long an in-ground pool construction will take (either fibreglass or concrete) as there are some unforseen elements such as weather that can delay some project but the average pool construction can take between 8-12 weeks. This accounts for design, permitting, excavation, plumbing and electrical, building, and adding any final deck and any final detailing, such as landscape features. Details are what we excel at, and we leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of your perfect pool.
Quality is everything to us at M.E. Contracting, and longevity is part of that quality. Concrete pool shells can be expected to last 25 years or more. Fibreglass pools can last for over 30 years. This long-term home investment pays dividends in enjoyment and memory-making, and over the lifespan of the pool can provide a fun, healthy and active pastime for those who enjoy it.
