Custom Pool Design

Our experienced and professional design consultant will come to your property to meet with you. While there we'll show you a variety of pool designs and help identify a solution for your unique needs. Measurements of the backyard will be taken so that our designer can work on an accurate design.

Material Selection

Once a design has been approved, our consultant will meet with you once again to select the materials. At this point in the process you will select tile, plaster, decking, stone and choose the ones that will work best with your pool.

Construction Phases

  • Layout:

Here, we take the dimensions of the pool design & drawings, and lay it out onto the proposed site area. This provides an ideal opportunity to see the outlines of the actual size and shape of the pool and make any changes to the size and location of the pool before we actually break ground with excavation.

  • Excavation:

Once the layout stage is complete we then proceed on to the process of excavating the grass, underlying soil and rock in order to prepare the site for the pool construction.

  • Forming & Steel:

Just as steel and wood are used to form a solid foundation for a home; it is also used to form the shape and structure of your pool. While it is visually rough, it serves as the framework for a pool scape with high structural integrity.

  • Electrical & Plumbing:

Before the gunite process, we install all the plumbing and electrical components. We ensure that the plumbing is pressure tested and the electrical meets the necessary city and state codes.

  • Gunite Application:

Our team of experienced personnel apply the gunite using high-pressure hoses to create the tough inner shell of your new pool. It truly is awesome to see the gunite concrete applied and worked onto the forming structure so that you get the first real time vision of your dream pool.

  • Tile & Coping:

Pool construction and design has a wonderful selection available of natural stone tiles, slates, ceramics, and mosaics. The pool coping can be crafted from natural stone, including limestone, brick, cement, or an assortment of other materials.

  • Masonry & Stone:

Our team of masons go through great measures to monitor quality during the installation process to ensure that the work that is done is flawless and built to last.

  • Decking:

This is the perimeter area surrounding your pool. There are a variety of surfaces that are implemented here based on your design from the standard Sundek material to custom stone or stamped concrete. At this stage we also create any features included in your design such as outdoor fireplaces, firepits, fountains, summer kitchens and more.

  • Plaster:

Applying the plaster is a complex yet easy process. It is blown onto the gunite and requires a quick, experienced and hard working crew to smooth the surface to assure a beautiful finish. The pool is then immediately filled with water. The next 7 days requires the homeowners to thoroughly “brush” the pool twice a day to ensure the smoothest surface possible. Since this step is essential and must be adhered to, please contact us if you are unable to participate in this part of the process.
