Budget Planning

It’s not surprising that one of the first questions most of our customers and potential customers ask is, “How much do your pools cost?” That’s totally understandable–a swimming pool is a big project, and most people expect to invest a significant amount of money into it, but they’re not always quite sure what to expect. While this seems like a simple question, the answer is not always as simple.


1st Budget Range

At Legendary Escapes, we generally explain three basic budget ranges. The first range is for a standard pool. For a basic swimming pool project, a customer could expect to spend anywhere from $35,000-$45,000. This is the easiest budget question to answer, because there are fewer variables in this type of construction project. A pool builder knows almost exactly what will go into these projects, so it is relatively simple to accurately estimate the price. There are a couple of great vinyl liner pool builders in the area if you are looking for this type of project. We’d recommend staring with Gino from Lakeside Pools.

2nd Budget Range

The next level is a more unique, stylized swimming pool. These types of projects might have a water feature, a spa, or other accessories. Because there are many more variables in this type of project, the price can vary greatly. Depending on the types of accessories and level of customization, this type of project can range from $45,000 to $100,000. If you are looking in this budget range, we would suggest talking to Nate from NDK Pools/Michigan Shotcrete for Vinyl or Gunite, and John Rice of Evolution Pools (248-496-8328) for Gunite starting at the higher end of this range.

Specialty Budget Range & Projects We are Currently Accepting

Our specialty Legendary Escapes swimming pools, completely customized and one-of-a-kind, generally fall into a category all their  own. The level of customization is greater than any you will see at a standard swimming pool company. These projects are our specialty hybrid swimming pools, and can be customized as much as desired to fit each client individually. While we will work with customers at every level to make sure they have a final product that fits their needs, their style, and their hopes, this type of project is the most unique and personal. It is almost impossible to give a figure for the budget of this type of project, because it is so dependent on the desires of each client. We have two options available, what we lovingly refer to as a “mini Legendary” that would be in our Legendary Style with a freeform feel, custom elements and a bit of art in the budget range of $80,000-120,000 and our Legendary Escapes, Al Curtis Original Pools with exciting elements and art with grottos, swim up bars, waterfalls and more. If you are interested in a Legendary Escape, or a mini Legendary please give us a call to talk about your project 248-478-4978.    

At Legendary Escapes, we love our clients. If you are interested in a new swimming pool that fits the specialty category, and like what we do, we would be happy to meet with you and discuss your specific needs, questions, and ideas. We are flexible and happy to work with clients to create a design that will be amazing. Our design process begins with working with clients to develop a dream backyard–everything you could possibly want and more. Then, we work with each client to create a plan and a design that will give them the most satisfaction. Our goal is happy customers; that’s all there is to it.
