Why You Need
The Pool Consultant
Why I became a consultant
The nightmares of pool construction are far too common. The dream of having a backyard paradise gets bombarded with road blocks created by empty promises, construction delays, unrealistic expectations, poor communication and site supervision, unexpected expenses, and long lines to get started if you can even get a builder to call you back! Sound familiar?
My name is Mikah Stanley. I have 20 years experience as a pool builder in the DFW area. I have also owned and operated a pool service and repair company for 15 years. I have personally cleaned thousands of pools and I understand how pools operate. Also, I have owned and operated a pool sub-contractor company installing pool plumbing and pool steel. I have a passion for teaching and a desire to change the experience of building a pool, whether you decide to do it yourself or hire a builder to handle it for you. I want to be your trusted friend in the pool construction process.
FACT: There is no license to be a Pool Builder in many states!
In all of my experience, one thing rings true...you don't know you have a good pool builder until you've picked a bad one, then it's often too late. I want to keep this from happening by helping you to have realistic expectations in understand the process of construction and all that could happen. If you want to hire a builder, please do your homework! However, reading reviews can only tell you so much. I can provide you with a review of your potential builder from within the industry. Does your builder pay his subs fairly and on time? If not, you could end up with liens on your house. Does your builder have credit accounts in good standing with supply warehouses? If not, you may be left without all of your pool equipment. What is your builder's reputation among industry colleagues? Often there is much going on behind the scenes that the general public doesn't see. These are just a few of the ways I can vet your potential pool builder.
Do you have what it takes to build your own pool?
If I'm being honest here, the answer is maybe. It's possible that anyone could build their own, but not all may be up for the challenges. It takes a vision and an ability to communicate that to a designer, obtain detailed and scaled construction plans, spare time to file your permits, a heavy dose of persistence to call all of the sub-contractors and collect pricing and get scheduled, a willingness to inspect the work completed, be adequately funded and pay the subs quickly, patience with industry and weather delays, etc. What do you get in exchange for all this hard work? A sense of control over your project, a sense of accomplishment as you witness your paradise coming to life, and last but certainly not least THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS SAVED! Choosing to invest in the Build Your Own Pool package can give you all the tools you need to be your own builder, and do it successfully!
Not ready to build just yet but eager to turn your vision into a plan?
Anytime is the right time to take your dream backyard and make a plan! Together, you and I will meet, discuss everything you've been thinking about, and I will create a design and set of construction plans. Additionally I will share with you what to expect for your budget and what you can expect from the DIY construction process once you start. Building a pool is a HUGE investment and taking your time to prepare is a smart thing to do!
