Through our commitment to building the most beautiful and affordable pool you can own, Savage Pools has made backyard dreams come true for hundreds of customers over the years. Below are some of the common questions asked by homeowners when considering their new swimming pool.
How Much Does a Pool Cost?
That is an excellent question. They can range from $29,000 on up. This is based on the type we build - in-ground, gunite pools. Above ground pools and "vinyl lined" pools can be less expensive, but are far less durable and are much more susceptible to post construction problems. We've built a large number of affordable and beautiful pools that range from simple to sophisticated in design that fit a variety of budgets and lifestyles. Ultimately the guiding factors that determine a pools cost are it's size, features, terrain of your lot, plat survey, equipment and materials. An accurate estimate is obtained when one of our design professionals provide you with a FREE consultation with you at your home, determine your design preferences and combine that with your lots terrain and size. It is nearly impossible to give you an accurate quote via email without knowing more about your property's characteristics. You may be able to get an email estimate from other pools companies, but likely it won't factor everything accurately as there is no real consultation time with you to discuss everything you desire. We pride ourselves on NOT BEING a hard sell pool builder. We take the time to listen to you, create the design, present it with the costs and features, make adjustments as necessary and let you choose who you think should be your pool builder. We feel confident that our reptutation and personal service will impact your decision to choose Savage Pools.
What Kind of Pool is Right for Me?
Your overall lot size will determine what kind/size of pool is appropriate for you and your family, but in terms of shape, style, etc...It really depends on how you plan to use your pool. If exercise is most important, then perhaps a pool that facilitates swimming laps is appropriate. If you desire a pool that reflects a backyard oasis that is the perfect setting for entertaining, relaxing and overall enjoyment then a Freeform design is probably most suited. We invite you to visit our "Design Gallery" to view and research a variety of pool designs that fit a multitude of lifestyles and needs. Our design professionals can then assist you in determining the pool shape and design that works best for you.

Can I use my pool area year round?
Absolutely! You see, we're not only pool builders, but we're also pool owners, and like a number of our customers, we know that a quality pool can be used and enjoyed well beyond the "pool season". Warm weather here in Texas can last all the way through October into November and often be back as early as February. Whether it's spring, summer, fall or winter, a beautiful pool area can be the centerpiece for a wealth of great and long lasting memories of times spent with friends and family that will last for years to come. Simply put, with Savage Pools, no matter the time of year, you always get more than a beautiful and enduring quality pool......you get a backyard oasis that you can enjoy year round.
Summer's Over, Shouldn't I Just Wait Until Spring to Build My New Pool??
You could wait, but actually the period of November through February is ideal to start planning and building your pool. Many people choose to wait until Spring/Summer to build their pool and thus it might take longer as demands increase. It's similar to the concept of going to the Department of Motor Vehicles in the middle of the day. You have long lines and have to wait a little longer than if you went at some other time. By planning ahead with your decision to build a new pool you can ensure that your backyard oasis will be ready to use the first warm days of Spring.
