Ask the Home Expert: Ted’s Pools

With warmer days ahead, now is the time to think about your idyllic backyard retreat. And nothing says luxury living quite like a gorgeous swimming pool. Here’s how to get yours.

Out of the blue: How to get the pool of your dreams

Carol and Joe Perchetti, the award-winning force behind legendary Ted’s Pools, answer your questions about creating a backyard paradise. With over 40 years of unmatched expertise, this female, veteran and family-owned company meticulously designs the area’s most stunning pools.

I really want a pool. How do I start?

 First, schedule a convenient one-on-one appointment – and let’s get to know each other. We begin every personal consultation with your wish list, so try to imagine your pool – how big, how deep and any special features, from a fire bowl to a hot tub to a swim-up bar. Tell us what you love, and let’s see what’s possible. And be sure to show us pictures of installations that you’ve seen and adore.

How long does it take to build my pool?

Our beautiful in-ground gunite pools average 70 days to construct, and our new vinyl liner pools take about 45 days. Fire water features, a natural boulder grotto or a waterfall require a few weeks more. We create a transparent budget to fit your needs and navigate every phase of construction, right up to filling your pool and overseeing maintenance.

I have an old pool – can I renovate it?

Yes! Properties age and design esthetics change…as do available features and technology. Our highly skilled renovation division can rehab your pool, replacing tile, plaster, coping and decking, then adding exquisite features, like a spa, smart lighting, dazzling tile, ledges, waterfall and fountains. We also offer vinyl liner replacements.

It’s time to build your dream pool. Call Carol and Joe Perchetti for a design consultation. They’ll personally oversee every detail of your project – from the initial meeting to the final drop of crystal-clear water. Each pool is engineered to fit your needs and budget. Find out what it means to dream underwater.
