Our Pool Construction 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 Manhattan, 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.
Step 1: Initial Meeting
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.
Step 2: Proposal & Presentation
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.
Mill Bergen Pools invites you to take advantage of the unique opportunity to experience a swimming pool environment in the comfort of our indoor showroom, where you can see first-hand the various designs and features we offer. View working examples of our craftsmanship to get some inspiration for your project. While you’re here, one of our specialists working on your project will present you with our mock-up design of your pool. Here we discuss any additional features and finishes to incorporate into your backyard oasis.
Step 3: Review Your 3D Design
We once again meet you for you to approve the final design and sign the contract for us to start building your pool! We go over the paperwork in detail so that you know exactly what you’re agreeing to and by keeping everybody on the same page. We answer any questions you have about the agreement and the work involved in construction.
Step 4: Let the Building Start!
Construction begins! This is the most exciting step as you see your backyard dream become a reality right before your eyes. Below are the eight phases of construction:
- Steel reinforcement
- Setting the electrical and plumbing components
- Setting the concrete
- Tile & coping installation
- Decking installation
- Pool finish installation
- Pool start up and running
Depending on the design, size, and shape of your pool, construction takes anywhere from 4-8 weeks to complete.
