The Custom-designed Pool Process
There are many elements that go into building a custom pool - and it all starts with your free estimate so that your pool professional can understand what you're looking for. From there, your contractor will provide custom design ideas that directly reflect your wishes. Measurements are taken, material samples are provided and the final plan is made, including elements that will improve your outdoor living experience like outdoor seating areas, fire pits, water features, putting greens, patio covers, free-standing patio covers, open lattice shade bars and many more. Pricing is determined based on your final project specifications; this is your chance to take advantage of 100-percent financing on approved credit. Then the fun really begins! Fall is an excellent time to begin work on your project; it's sure to be completed by the time you are ready to take a dip on a hot summer day. How do you make this seamless, stress free and completed on time? Work with a company that takes tremendous pride in the work, services and outcomes they provide.

Show Uninvited Guests to the Door
Rodent infestations have become more commonplace in Santa Clarita as drought, flooding and fires have driven wildlife into our communities in search of resources and shelter. Think you hear things at night - maybe light clawing sounds in your ceilings or walls? That may be your uninvited guests making a nesting place. Other signs of rodent infestation include signs of gnawing, like teeth marks on wood, paper board or cloth; bits of dry grass, fabric or shredded paper behind furniture or in cabinets; an unexplained musty smell or, most obviously, droppings (And if you notice those, please call a rodent-control professional asap. The droppings can carry serious diseases and also can cause severe respiratory infections.).
