Moving to Phoenix - Why to Consider It Evolve at Cantilena, Peoria, AZ

 

Whether you already live in a nearby location or are lusting after the year-round sun Arizona offers, Phoenix is a city on the rise. According to the US Census, the population of Arizona has increased 9.8% since 2010, with the state’s population increasing 1.7% from 2016 to 2017. As the nation’s fifth-largest city, Phoenix is a growing, urban oasis contributing to the increase in population within The Grand Canyon State.

We chatted with Jim Pinson from Shasta Pools, Shea’s trusted resource for everything aquatic, to get the scoop on everything from construction to safety and maintenance. Shasta has been family-owned since 1966 and has been Arizona’s premier pool builder for decades.

While some homebuyers wait to build their pool until after closing, there are a few reasons to consider going for it right out of the gate.
