Over 20+ YEARS OF


We build what you want for your enjoyment

Who we are...

Liquid Designs is a small veteran-owned, family operated General Contractor licensed to develop projects in North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. We design and build customized watershapes (pools and spas), water features (waterfalls, fountains and bubblers) and pool area amenities designed for your relaxation and enjoyment. From our first day of business, we have maintained a firm client-focused process to design and build exactly what you want. 


We are passionate about knowing our clients, and will make sure you are comfortable and pleased with your project from start to finish. Liquid Designs does not walk away until we know you have received the product you desired with strict attention to detail in all aspects. 


While we believe all phases of our projects are equally important, we consider the final phase - providing long-term customer satisfaction – to be an ongoing effort. We maintain contact with our customers, many of whom become clients of our sister company, Platinum Pool Service, for follow-on routine pool maintenance services.

Committed to excellence from

the first day...


Craig Mayhugh, creator of Liquid Designs of North Carolina, brings over 20+ years of hands-on personal custom pool design and construction experience to Raleigh’s unmatched custom pools.


Craig served four years in the United States Army, and entered the pool construction business in 2000 working under Northern Virginia’s finest pool builder. He loved learning every aspect of pool construction, literally getting his feet wet and hands dirty participating every aspect of pool construction.


After 5 years of experience in Northern Virginia, he decided to take his experience and apply what he had learned to Raleigh, NC.


He worked as a pool construction supervisor overseeing every detail of construction for a few years before realizing it was time to start his own business. In 2008 he decided starting his own company was the only way to make sure the project and designs met his high standards of quality and attention to detail – giving birth to Liquid Designs.


Liquid Designs has a great team of fulltime employees trained by Craig to construct all aspects of the project the right way first. We have partnered with many specific trade specialists (e.g., electrical, HVAC, gas and landscapers) who know our process and provide the highest quality of work for these critical areas of pool systems installation.


A few minutes with Craig will impress you with his passion for all aspects of the business and will assure you that he is intimately involved in each phase of your project, from design to construction to the finished, delivered product.
