Yes, yes, yes! They came on recommendation to us from a friend who is VERY particular.
We used Ryan to build two of our pools, 1 small one at our Abaoca home and a complete demo and rebuild of a large pool and added a spa at our new home. I cannot speak highly enough about them. DM me if you'd like to see pictures. We defintely gets lots of compliments on our pool and have not had any problems. Our pool was done in January and we had someone stop by last week just to check on things.

Ryan is good. The other two in the area that are worth talking to is Almar-Jackson (excellent workmanship, though higher priced) and A&G out of Stuart (huge company, can build some really neat pools).

Also be careful of features like rock waterfalls and tile murals on the floor.....they are expensive and can "date" a pool very quickly. 10 years ago natural Florida rock was all the rage (really a poor stone selection for a pool due to jagged texture, easy stone breakdown etc). Now you look at a 10 year old one and most people go "yuck" just like Harvest Gold Appliances, popcorn ceilings and shag carpet!

Building "Disney World" in your backyard usually becomes an epic failure. A good builder will talk you out of it, a greedy one will encourage it and happily collect the check. Water features, slides, rock edges are great in magazine pools but usually tough to make livable and look great for a lifetime.

Just spoke with someone from A & G...he is the exclusive pool contractor for Kolter Homes...and gave me a rough estimate over the phone...I have also been speaking with Sharon of RHR pools...but I guess I'll have to wait till we go down there to find out who we like best...

I thought finding a home was a pain...shopping pool contractors is worse....Thanks
