Backyard Transformations

To ease your mind, we’ve assembled a step-by-step outline to help you know what to expect as your swimming pool is created. View the steps below.


Barrett Pools offers you a state of the art virtual design of your pool before we ever begin construction. We know that building a swimming pool is a big step. With our virtual design you are able to visualize your dream pool in your very own backyard.


Now that the design of your pool is finalized, we begin by laying out the swimming pool structure in your yard. This allows you the chance to better visualize your new swimming pool.

The construction process begins by shaping the ground according to the specifications for your pool design.



We begin forming the walls around your pool with steel grid construction. By the time this process is completed, you’ll have a good idea of what the outline and depth of your pool looks like.

We apply gunite to the walls and bottom around the steel grid built during the forming process. This will provide the hard surfaces necessary for the interior design of your pool.

The tile and coping for your pool go hand-in-hand. We carefully install the decking to mesh well with the coping surrounding your pool. Next, the pool surface of your choice is applied, equipment set and the pool filled with water.
