Often people ask, “How much is a pool?” That’s like asking, “How much is a car?” It depends on so many things, like the level of quality, what features are included and what is extra. With a pool, there’s the price of the pool itself, but then you need to ask, “Are the permits included, is the gas and electrical hooked up, is the fence included, what about the retaining walls?” It’s not surprising people think they can build a lot with a small budget. Most are just not aware of the costs, like dealing with regulations, rising costs of materials and labour, the cost to fix your lawn after major construction, the cost to rough in features that you may want to install later. These are all variables that are impossible to know until your project has been fully planned and costed. When you get a quote from Betz we spell everything out in detail, making it very clear exactly what’s included and what’s extra. Beware of contractors who toss around ballpark numbers before all the details are discussed.
