Challenge: Is it really necessary to hire a pool professional to inspect, clean, and open my pool?


Solution: If you own a swimming pool, you’ll want to inspect, test, and open your pool to begin using it. You’re best served by engaging a company to open your pool with a Certified Service Technician® and hiring a Certified Maintenance Specialist® to maintain your pool. While your pool may seem essentially a simple thing, it has complex equipment and uniquely designed plumbing that are crucial to its proper operation and cleanliness. A company with Certified Service Technician® to open your pool assures you that you have factory trained pros to repair pool equipment, including filters, pumps, heaters, and controls. When it comes to your pool’s weekly maintenance, a company with a factory trained Certified Maintenance Specialist® assures that your pool company follows the industry’s best practices. Let a company like B&B service your pool, so you can sit back and enjoy your finest home accessory.

Challenge:  We’d like to extend the enjoyment of our home to our backyard with landscaping, a patio, maybe an outdoor kitchen, and a fire pit. With so many possibilities, where do we start?


Solution: “We approach all of our projects with a mindset of thoughtful investment in design. Our goal is to bring out the inherent beauty of a property and ensure there’s consistency and flow between the interior and exterior spaces of our clients’ homes, all while meeting their needs and budget expectations. The earlier we are brought in during the planning process, the more flexibility we have to guide the process and maximize the potential for making our clients’ wish lists for their homes a reality.  As a Design & Build firm, Zavaglia Associates is able to fine-tune this process from conception to completion — as a husband and wife team, we completely appreciate the cooperation, coordination, and communication that’s key!”
