I've been talking to a number of pool builders. When I tell them I want a baja shelf, several have indicated that it is a "premium feature".
I don't understand the logic: Grading doesn't need to do extra work. Rebar doesn't need to do extra work. Shotcrete/Gunite may have to do a tiny bit of extra work to be careful about making sure it's leveled properly. Plaster same thing.
The amount of incremental work for this is minimal.
Is this just a way for PB's to justify an increase in price or am I missing something?
