Why Choose a General Contractor to Design and Build Your Swimming Pool

Pool builders aren’t the only ones to offer pool construction in Los Angeles – general contractors do as well! While there are benefits to hiring both professionals, the most important thing is that you choose a reputable, professional pool builder who will get the project done in a reasonable amount of time. They should also have a strong portfolio and be able to work with your budget. 

With all that said, let’s cover the benefits to hiring a general contractor like Kavin Construction for your custom swimming pool needs. You might find that this is the best option for you, just as many other Los Angeles pool owners have. 

Experience and Expertise 

Even though general contractors do more than build pools, their experience is well-rounded and versatile. The contractors from Kavin Construction know how to work with all different budgets and circumstances, including small or oddly shaped yards. They can draw inspiration from the other projects they have worked on and have a unique perspective that traditional pool companies don’t always have. 

Creative Designs 

General contractors do all types of work every day – they transform living spaces, build kitchens, convert garages into living spaces and so much more. Part of their job is to help homeowners bring their visions to life, which means thinking outside the box. This mindset can be easily translated to other projects as well, including pool installation and construction. 

Here are some creative features we’ve done for our customers: 

  • Water features like fountains and waterfalls
  • LED lighting 
  • Tanning ledges 
  • Princess decks 
  • Plunge pools
  • Spillover spas 
  • Automated cleaning features 

One-Stop Shopping 

Most pool projects include construction components such as decking, patios, gazebos, planting, lighting, irrigation and more. These are the finishing touches that will make your pool beautiful! However, pool contractors are not allowed to provide these services because they have a single pool contractor’s license. General contractors, on the other hand, are licensed by the State License Board, allowing them to oversee multiple trades. This allows you to get everything from a single package and one cohesive team.

Qualified Contractors 

When working with a trusted team of contractors in Los Angeles, you can expect professional results, respect for your home and improved communication. Unfortunately, some pool companies use subcontractors to complete their projects, leaving homeowners in the dark about who’s working on their pool and when it will be completed.

Kavin Construction has our own crew – you can read about them here! These are the faces you’ll be seeing each day, and these are the people who will be communicating with you about your pool and the progress being made. Most importantly, you can expect a consistent level of workmanship from a team that stands by everything we do. 


When choosing a company to design and install your swimming pool, be sure to do your research, read customer reviews, look at the company’s portfolio and ask the right questions. The most important thing is that you hire a trusted team to do the work.
