Getting Started

Before we make our first visit to your pool site, we will require you to provide us with a property survey that has been stamped by a licensed surveyor. Your Claffey design consultant will then visit you to ask about your family, lifestyle, and pool usage.

We'll also cover form and function, design, sanitation, and more. Before leaving, your Claffey design consultant will schedule a follow-up meeting at one of our showrooms.


Claffey Pools designers have a combined pool design and building experience of more than 100 years. Our professional staff includes degreed landscape architects, home builders, and structural designers. Every project, big or small, is custom designed using the latest technology.


Our estimates will be the most detailed proposals you will find. Unless you add something during the process, you will not be charged for lock of accuracy by our staff. There are no hidden exclusions, or assumptions.

Claffey Office Visit

During your office visit, you will review a "state-of-the-art" 3-D presentation of the design we have created. We will walk you through the most complete and accurate estimate in the pool design and construction industry, explain conditions such as structure, drainage, and topographical changes that are unique to your property, review the finish-out process, and show you products that are included in your project proposal.
