FAQs

Q: What type of pool can you design & build?

A: When designing your pool our design consultants will work with you to create the pool of your dreams and help you choose the best features for you and your home. The look of your pool also depends on what type of deck and tile you choose, as well as the option for boulder or rock features and landscaping. Since every Sunstone pool is custom built, your pool design is up to you and where you would like to enjoy it.

Q: How long does it take to build a custom pool?

A: Depending on the type of pool you are having built, you could be enjoying your custom Sunstone pool in about six to eight weeks. A pool with more features and design work will take a little longer than a basic pool. The weather, additional construction and the type of landscaping you would like are all major factors for the length of time it takes for your custom pool to be built.

Q: What are city regulations for building a custom pool?

A: As a home owner looking into building a custom pool you can call or go to your local city offices and ask for the requirements for building a pool in your area. Also you may want to find out if topography is required and if you need to apply for a variance if your yard is not big enough for a pool. Acquiring all this information before design and construction may avoid setbacks during the construction process. Every city has different regulations, so it is important that any questions be answered by your city officials.

Q: What is the difference between Gunite and Shotcrete?

A: Technically the names should be Shotcrete wet and Shotcrete dry. The application for the two is the same. The two processes are pneumatically applied. The main deference is that the dry method is delivered dry to the job site and the water is added at the nozzle when the material exits. The wet mix is delivered from a ready mix plant.
