Designing Your Custom Pool

What could be better than pool parties in your backyard next summer? If you’re considering a custom swimming pool in the NJ tri-state area, it’s not too early to begin planning and designing your dream pool. In fact, the cold winter months are the perfect time to start on your custom pool installation plans for this summer. The Thomas Flint team will work with you to design, plan, and ultimately build your swimming pool, creating a backyard paradise for you to enjoy with your friends and family. Design: We will come to your home to evaluate your backyard and determine the best plan for your custom swimming pool. We take into consideration the shape and size of your yard, any elevation changes that may exist, what type of pool best fits your budget (concrete or vinyl liner), as well as what your desires are for the area around your pool. After our meeting, we will work on a proposal and initial design plans for your consideration. Preparation: After you are completely satisfied with the design phase, and we have customized the project to fit your budget, the Thomas Flint Design Team will begin coordinating all the required professionals to begin the permit process. At this point any custom materials will be ordered so there is no delay in staring the project. Once the permits have been issued, the final layout and construction process will begin. We understand that new pool construction is a large undertaking, so we will keep you up-to-date with all the proceedings. Construction: The construction phase is where you truly begin to see the benefits of choosing Thomas Flint. Working seamlessly with one contact point allows for simple and efficient project management. During the pool construction phase, you can rest assured that everyone working on your new pool is held to the highest industry standards. This includes all laborers, engineers, designers, and any members of the construction team. We strictly oversee every detail of every custom New Jersey tri-state area pool that we design so that our clients can have an enjoyable construction experience from start to finish. Below is a basic outline of the pool construction process:

  • Create a timeline for the entire pool project with anticipated start and completion dates
  • Obtain permits from the proper town departments
  • Perform excavation and rough grading for pool, patio and planting areas
  • Install framing, plumbing fixtures. In the case of vinyl pools, this will include the steel framing
  • Install gunite/shotcrete shell or install floor and liner in vinyl pools
  • Install pool masonry, tile, coping (etc.) if necessary
  • Install all necessary filtration equipment and pumps
  • Install pool patio, plantings, fencing, irrigation, lighting, etc.
  • Plaster pool and fill with water
  • Establish chemical balances while running final inspection

With hundreds of projects completed, Thomas Flint has some great imagery, but here is what our clients are saying about our work.

Just writing to express my thanks for a fantastic job well done by the team at Thomas Flint. It was definitely a pleasure working with Tom and the team there. From the initial start of the requested project through the end everything went as planned and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. Not only was everything completed much quicker than I had expected, it was done thoroughly. I look forward to working with Tom and everyone again in the near future!

Thanks so much for all your hard work in transforming our backyard. We were able to have a wonderful Mother’s Day barbecue on the patio, and the new plantings and grass looked great. Thanks again. Keep up the good work around town. I’ll be sure to refer you to all who ask for a top-flight landscape design team!
