Having now completed my UBI Backyards project I feel that I need to take a moment to express my satisfaction and appreciation.
Building the pool and backyard of my dreams would not have happened had it not been for Scott & UBI Backyards. His experience in everything from the initial design to the final finishing touches was essential to the process. We went thru about 4 or 5 design changes before I settled on the final design, Scott was extremely patient with me and helped to incorporate my ideas for my pool in a safe, cost effective and inspired manner. 
Building a pool is a multi-step process and things must be done in a certain order. Scott helped to schedule the Gunite crew and we scheduled the excavators, steel crew and plumber off that date, the rest of the scheduling was handled by me. I had the pool equipment delivered but chose to go and pick up the tile and coping to save on costs. 
Scott came out to help me supervise for the first contractors (excavators) visit so I would feel comfortable. I had lots of questions and it was interesting to watch my yard get dug up in such an effective manner. We ran into a small snag ( the septic line) and they dig crew put in a temporary line before they left. 
For the next few contractors, things went as planned and I supervised their work on my own. I must have called Scott over 20 times often at 7 in the morning with questions, he was kind, informative and patient with me each and every phone call. Scott came out just before the plaster crew to check for any issues as well. 
After the plaster went in and we filled the pool Scott arranged for the representative from Hayward (the maker of my pump, filter, heater and controller) to come out, set up and walk me thru the system.
My totaltimefromdig to swim was between 30 to 40 days. 
The best part about UBI Backyards was being able to afford options that I would never have been able to afford if I had used a traditional pool builder, I built an $90,000 pool for just over $50,000
*Make sure you get exactly what you want. It’s a big investment and the finished project should be nothing short of perfect.
I’m a satisfied customer and would recommend UBI Backyards for anyone with initiative and drive that is looking for a way to save money on a pool or other backyard project! 
Feel free to hit me up and you can come take a look at my completed project!
