How to determine the best Pool Builder?

Getting the pool you want in your backyard can be an exciting and fulfilling project. It requires planning, research, and access to reliable pool builders. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to get the pool you want in your backyard, including options for outdoor living and Boardwalk Pools.

What are the steps to build a pool in Houston, Texas?

Step 1. Site Survey

If you're a resident of Houston, Texas and interested in building a new pool or spa, we're here to help. Our team at Boardwalk Pools will arrange a meeting with you at your property at a convenient time. During the visit, a team member will conduct a site-survey and assess your yard to identify the best location for your new pool or spa. Our designer will also be present to discuss your vision, any potential challenges, or requirements based on the location of your home or yard before creating a custom design tailored precisely for you. Get in touch with us today to begin your pool building journey.

Step 2. Excavation

At Boardwalk Pools, serving Cypress, Katy, and Greater Houston, we ensure that your custom pool construction runs smoothly from start to finish. Before excavation begins, we take care to locate and verify the location of any underground utilities to avoid any potential issues during digging. Once we have all necessary permits and HOA approvals, we will provide you with an estimated schedule for excavation and other phases of construction. Your Project Coordinator will keep you informed every step of the way. You will also meet your Project Manager during the pool layout phase, which marks the start of the excavation process - the first major construction phase for your custom pool.

Step 3. Rebar and Plumbing

At our Houston pool building company, we take pride in our unparalleled expertise in constructing long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing swimming pools. As part of our comprehensive pool building process, we incorporate new pool construction techniques such as installing the pool’s fundamental rebar made of steel. This step is vital for ensuring the structural integrity and longevity of your pool. Additionally, our team will expertly stub out all plumbing and electrical components during this crucial stage. Trust us to bring your dream pool to life and ensure that it stands the test of time.

Boardwalk Pools is a professional pool maintenance company that provides services to the Houston and Cypress areas. When it comes to pool maintenance, they follow a specific set of steps to ensure that the pool is clean and safe. Here are the typical steps they take:


1. Skim the Surface: Skimming the surface of the pool removes debris, such as leaves and bugs, that may have fallen into the water.

2. Brush the Walls: Brushing the walls of the pool removes any algae or other growth on the surfaces.


3. Vacuum the Pool: Vacuuming the pool removes any debris that has sunk to the bottom of the pool.

Step 4. Gunite and Pool Shape

Our expert team, based here in Greater Houston, will use some serious magic to shape your pool into the backyard paradise you've always dreamed of. And we don't mess around when it comes to longevity and stability, which is why we use gunite - a type of concrete that's so tough it makes Superman jealous. Seriously, we're so confident in the strength of our work that we'll give you a lifetime warranty against leaks and cracks. But let's talk about gunite for a hot sec. Unlike traditional concrete that's mixed in a truck with both big and small particles, gunite is all about the finer particles and is mixed with water right at the nozzle during a super high-speed application. It's like magic, only better because it's real! And let's be real, after the excavation, watching your pool take shape is basically the most exciting thing ever. Trust us, we've seen grown adults do cartwheels in their backyard when they see their pool start to come together. So buckle up, friends, because it's about to get real cool real fast.

Step 5. Coping and Tile Work

Coping is the border that separates the pool from the deck and protects the pool from damage. Materials for coping include natural stone, brick, pavers, and concrete, each with unique advantages. Pool tile is decorative and available in different shapes, colors, and sizes, creating a stylish design, while also making for easy maintenance. These elements are vital for achieving a beautiful, functional swimming pool.

Step 6. Decking

Pool decking is an essential element of any outdoor swimming pool area. It is the surface that surrounds the pool, providing a safe and slip-resistant area for swimmers to walk on. The pool deck is not only functional but can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of the pool area. Pool decking comes in a variety of materials including concrete, pavers, natural stone, and synthetic materials. Each type of decking has its own unique pros and cons, and the choice depends on personal style, budget, and preference.

Step 7. Fill the Pool

Woohoo! We're almost there! After all the planning and construction, it's time to fill up your sparkling new pool with water and get the startup process going! Are you ready to invite your friends and family over for a splash-tastic pool party? And don't worry, our team will give you a comprehensive pool school session so you'll know everything about operating and caring for your amazing new pool. Get ready to dive into a whole new world of fun and relaxation!
