About Us



The first swimming pool we designed was in 2003 and it did not take us long to realize that it was a great career move. It is amazing to watch kids jump into their own pool for the first time when only two months earlier the pool was nothing more than lines on paper. It is truly our privilege to be given the opportunity to build pools for friends and neighbors in North Texas.

There’s a distinct difference in the level of service, quality, and expertise you receive from Custom Outdoor Trends. Consequently, it’s why many of our clients are repeat customers who have contacted us again and again as their builder of choice. The relationships we build in our community are long-standing, as are the ties that emotionally connect us with our clients.


If you are like us, values of any business we hire matters. On that subject, we can proudly relay that Custom Outdoor Trends offers its employees quality health care, a free life insurance policy, Worker’s Comp (which is not mandated in Texas), all appropriate liability insurances, paid holiday, paid vacation days up to 20 per year, school and continuing education fee assistance and a company-matching retirement investment account. We also give monthly to charity and are part of the Heath Park and Trail maintenance program. Does this sound like a company you would like to work for? That is what we strive to achieve because happy employees make happy customers.

It has taken us many years to get to this point and we are proud to let you know that what started as a contracting company of one is now a nearly complete design and construction company of 35, nearly half of whom live in the Rockwall area, nearly all live in Dallas and Rockwall Counties. We have three full time design and sales consultation staff members, an excavation crew, plumbers, electricians, stone masons, carpenters, technicians, a grade and clean crew, project managers and office staff. These are not sub-contractors. These are our full-time employees.

To someone unfamiliar with the construction industry, pool ‘companies’ may seem similar on the basis of how the pool is built. Of course, there are good and not-as-good businesses that build pools, based on all kinds of criteria. But what might be an important point of distinction to a new pool owner is the difference between a contracting company and a construction company.

There is nothing inherently bad about a contracting company. But we have had a long-term focus on becoming an expert construction company. It’s our employees, our vehicles, our insurance policies, our management. If you are looking for a company to contract out your pool, there is a bunch to choose from. If you are looking for a construction company to build your project hands-on, we are one of very few.
