Here’s what we offer:

Custom PoolsTopographical Survey:
We start with a unique and engineered drainage plan, specifically designed to alleviate concerns associated with current and proposed elevations that could affect surface water drainage. We work alongside you, the homeowner, and the engineer to develop a custom plan specific to your wants and needs, your property, residence, and neighboring properties. Many townships are now requiring this survey as part of the permit process. It protects you and your water space investment.

On-Site Supervision:
During the process of “caging” the pool and “shooting” the pool, Budd’s Pools & Spas’ experienced and knowledgeable employee remains on-site to monitor work conditions and product quality. This is a quality control measure to give you, the homeowner, the peace of mind knowing that the work is done properly under the various situations or conditions (during such processes as flashing or step placement) that can arise during the construction process.

Concrete Curing:
Curing is an extremely important step in the protection of your investment. The curing process, known as hydration, starts immediately and determines the compressive strength of your structure. Not doing this properly can be devastating to the concrete and its finish. Budd’s Pools & Spas’ employees, not the homeowner, set-up and monitor a soaker hose system in your newly constructed pool shell for a period of seven to 10 days. This method uses minimal water, while achieving our goal of slowing down the hydration process, thus creating a stronger pool shell. We make daily trips to ensure proper application(s).

Deck-O-Seal Expansion Joint:
This product is used for sealing joints subject to concrete movement to provide a firm, flexible, and tear resistant rubber that will protect your coping and tile from the freeze/thaw expansion. This is a must have to prevent the tile/coping “pop” during the winter months.

Budd’s Pools & Spas’ Exclusive White Glove Service:
This crucial service provides protection for your pool’s interior finish. The first 28 days after filling your pool with water is the most critical time, often determining the surface materials’ durability and longevity.
