Pools & Spas - Our Installation Process

Modern Pools

Pools & Spas - Our Installation Process Having the pool and spa of your dreams no longer has to be a mere thought in the distance! Modern Paving helps families make dreams turn into a reality. Our installation process is designed in eight easy steps to ensure you receive everything you want in your pool and spa.

Different pool designs require different procedures, but in general, the following phases should be what you expect when the new pool construction starts. From start to finish, the whole process should take around 8 weeks.

Our team of specialists helps to design not only your pool and spa, but can also help with the overall remodeling of your backyard area. Our California retaining walls are a great addition to your outdoor patio because they add texture and functionality to your pool deck. We also offer many different types of pavers in the Bay Area that vary in style, shape, and color that will be incorporated into your design phase to match your overall aesthetic. Contact us at (855)-955-PAVE to learn more about including our quality California pavers in your pool and spa design today.
