Nothing transforms your backyard like your very own swimming pool.

Stranger Creek Pools, Inc, is a Kansas based corporation owned by Mr. Steven King engaged in the design and installation of Custom Designed Gunite Swimming Pools in the northeast Kansas region. Mr. King possesses 30 years of experience in the Swimming Pool Industry being involved in the design/sales/construction of over 900 swimming pools dating back to the late 1970's. Stranger Creek has been in business in the northeast Kansas region for over 10 years.

From 1982-1985 Mr. King was selected annually by the National Pool and Spa Institute (NSPI, Washington, DC) to serve the Swimming Pool Industry as a technical expert on their national hot line, fielding calls on a national level assisting other industry members with their service and installation challenges.

From 1990-1993, Mr. King was recognized as an expert witness qualified to testify in the Knox County Tennessee courts system by that authority, with specific relevance to the construction and repair costs of swimming pools damaged by external natural and man made forces.

In 2003 Mr. King returned to the Swimming Pool Industry after serving 10 years in the corporate world, last serving as the Executive Director of Business Development for a national franchise chain. After working through two downsizings, forty plus weeks a year riding airplanes and sleeping in hotels he leaped at the opportunity to return to the trade he knows and loves so well. Excited about going to work for a hard day everyday, you can rest assured the personal attention your project receives is second to none.

The experts at Stranger Creek Pools, Inc. can assist you in designing the perfect Swimming Pool and Landscape options to fit your yard, style, and budget. A swimming pool is major investment, and it is not an understatement to say you want to get it right the first time. When it comes to the planning and installation of a swimming pool, we are unsurpassed in our knowledge, experience, focus, and attention to detail.

All our projects are computer-designed, allowing us to detail the entire poolscape including decking, landscaping, fencing, and any hardscaping. Then we can accurately provide a realistic estimate of the total cost of your dream backyard, produce construction drawings and provide them to every tradesman working on your project.

Unlike many swimming pool builders, we focus on our projects one crew at a time, and have no need to hire sub-contractors. We staff a full time certified civil engineer as well as an extremely talented team. We own our own excavation, gunite and plaster equipment, allowing us to fully control the means, quality, and timing of our production.

Stranger Creek's experience, equipment, and knowledge in the construction industry allows us to perform a number of alternative services for even the most complex of construction projects. Our team provides regular concrete pumping service, gunite placement, and concrete finishing if needed. We also design and install hardscapes such as rock retaining walls, planters, and any land or structural engineering services and consulting. See "What We Do" for more info.

Stranger Creek did a fantastic job on our pool. It was finished early last spring and we throughly enjoyed our first swim season. We had a challenging building site and Steve came up with a great plan for our pool. We would highly recommend Stranger Creek Pools!

Steve and his crew are by far the best in the area. I've owned my pool for 26 years and every time I call Steve with an issue, he is helpful and responsive to my concern. If we ever decide to move and build a new pool, Steve will certainly be the one to build it. He has a top flight company.

We built a new house last year and decided now was the time to put in a pool. After checking with several pool contractors we chose Stranger Creek and we haven't been sorry. I had studied salt water pools and Steve had answers to all my questions (and I had plenty). He's patient, prompt and one of the most organized contractors I've worked with. Would I recommend them...absolutely!!! We're so proud of how our pool turned out, we suggested Steve have potential clients come by and look.

Four years ago, Steve and his crew changed our boring backyard into a beautiful oasis with a fabulous swimming pool and spa. His knowledge and experience helped us through the process, offering suggestions and improvements to our original idea that made the finished product even better than we had imagined. Since then, he's been always available to answer questions to this first-time pool owner, with lots of patience and humor. I would highly recommend Stranger Creek Pools (and have many times) to anyone interested in pool ownership.

Our experience with Stranger Creek was outstanding. We had a very intricate project, with an unusual patio and pool design in addition to an outdoor living space with a fireplace/pizza oven and pergola. Steven King collaborated smoothly with the other people on the project and was directly involved every step of the way. The project was done professionally, on time, and on budget. Three years later, Stranger Creek continues to service the pool and respond immediately to any questions or requests that we have. I recommend them without hesitation.

I was so surprised to see a negative reveiw of Stranger Creek Pools that I had to comment! After contacting Steve King about a pool, he came to our house and took the time to understand our vision of what we wanted in our back yard and pool and then in a timely manner gave us an accurate estimate. He worked with us during construction making any changes we requested and helping us with additional ideas as the project progressed. We felt like we were working with a friend, not a disinterested contractor. We paid for changes in material and the assoctiated labor need, but the charges were fair and in line with the cost in the original bid. We are extremely happy with our back yard and pool and would highly recommend Stranger Creek Pools.

Agreed, Steve and his crew helped us turn a derilict out of whack pool into a pool to behold. They showed up and did exactly as they said they would, when they said they'd do it. He worked with us as the plan evolved through the process. He has a hard working crew that paid attention to the details. Their follow through and follow up is un-paralleled in an industry that Is lacking. He'll definately be the first on my call list for the next pool job I am involved with...

Steve and his crew did an excellent job on our pool. They were great to work with and they had great ideas on how to develop our backyard. Steve took the time to come out and give us a detailed estimate, unlike some of the bigger KC pool builders that just gave us a 'ballpark' estimate over the phone that was much higher with less options and upgrades. Highly recommended!!!!

Useless. Owner claims to have major knowledge of pools but cant get anything square or level. Shocking lack of knowledge from staff. Amateur and should be avoided.
