Backyard Specialties Pools & Spas in Amarillo Texas is consistently recognized for our superior level of swimming pool and spa construction. We also provide swimming pool construction in the TEXAS PANHANDLE Below, we have listed the phases of your NEW swimming pool construction.
Let Backyard Specialties design your next dream-pool for FREE. Every client receives before we begin construction. These masterfully created plans allow you to see all the pool design elements as they integrate into your home and backyard. At this phase, you can make revisions and improvements as necessary. Upon approval of your design, we use this layout to create detailed construction plans, and we begin the layout process for your new pool.
In the layout phase, we take the dimensions of the pool design & construction plans and lay it out onto your yard. This allows you to see the outlines of the actual size and shape of the pool and make any changes to the size, shape, and location of the pool before we break ground.
Once the layout phase is complete, we use a backhoe or small excavator to excavate your swimming pool and spa. We excavate your pool to exact measurements and specifications. We are now ready for forms of plumbing and re-bar.
We use wood forms and re-bar to create the detail and exact shape for your design. Together the forms and re-bar create the framework and high structural integrity of your pool.
In this phase, we install all the electrical and plumbing lines. The plumbing is put under pressure and inspected. The electrical is installed per required for Amarillo city and the state of TEXAS codes.
In this phase, we apply the gunite using high-pressure hoses to create the inner shell of your new pool. Once the gunite is applied, you will have a very good idea of how your new swimming pool and spa will look!
Tile work that makes your pool look spectacular. This is where your water features come to life. Like the Rico Rock waterfalls or natural stones, you will select different boulder types and sizes to create waterfalls, caverns, and jumping rocks, the unique design aspects of your pool.
This is the patio area around your pool. Once the concrete is placed, you have options as to the finished surface. Sundeck, textured, stamped concrete, stained concrete, and custom flagstone are just a few options. Next, we install your outdoor fireplaces, fire pits, fountains, summer kitchens, and more.
Applying the plaster becomes the final finish to the interior of the pool. Your pool is now watertight. There are many products and colors available. Your plaster is applied to the gunite and is troweled by hand to ensure a beautiful finish and filled with water, so the plaster cures underwater.
In this phase, we provide a pool school to educate you about the initial start-up and maintenance of your pool. Backyard Specialties Pools & Spas is available for any questions you may have in the future
