Our Process

Our Process

Buying a new pool is a big decision and investment! It is certainly one you shouldn’t make without doing your research. At Mill Bergen Pools, we understand the investment you are about to make, and we are dedicated to providing you with an exceptional design and seamless building process.

It is our job and deep passion to help you make the best decision when it comes to outfitting your backyard with a custom gunite, vinyl-liner or fiberglass pool. During your consultation, your Mill Bergen Pools representative will walk you through the three different types of inground pools that are offered and provide you with all of the necessary information to decide which one your family will benefit most from. After spending time with you, learning your vision and your desires, we will create a digital rendering on the computer of what the finished product will be. This unique design method gives the customer an extremely detailed visual image of the finished product in your yard, down to the correct color scheme and pool size/shape.

As the leading pool builder in Brooklyn and the surrounding areas, we feel confident we’ll be able to design and build the perfect inground pool for your backyard space. From classic designs to more elaborate features, Mill Bergen Pools can create what you are looking for at an affordable price. Read on below to learn more about our pool design and construction process. 

At the initial meeting, we come to your home to go over what you are looking for in your backyard pool. Factoring in the size and layout of your backyard, we work with you to bring your backyard vision to life. This includes selecting materials and discussing what water features options you want to incorporate into your poolscape. We also give you an in-depth overview of the pool-building process, from start to finish.
Pre-Design & <br/>Budget Planning Before we have a final design for your pool, we go over costs. Based on your family’s budget, we discuss all of the design options and features available to you. This meeting is important in helping us to create your dream backyard pool without breaking the bank.
