I have a 25,000 galIon pool that was overdue for a full remodel. I researched Pool remodeling companies for over 2 years to replace my old, cracked plaster and tile with new tile and a pebble type finish. Among the pool companies I dealt with were Adams Pools, Corby Gould Pools,Burkett Pools, Coral Pools, Lifetime Pools, Royal Pools and even a few I can't recall. I chose to interview Aqua Gunite on the advice of my pool guy and I am glad I did! Although I was not too thrilled with the salesman, (he cost them half a star), I was impressed with Sharon (the construction manager) at Aqua Gunite. She really knew the industry, her products and competition very well. She also suggested I contact the regional sales representative for Pebbletec. I did and he said they had actually sought out Aqua Gunite to become a reseller/ installer for Pebbletec because of their reputation. The Rep also told me that the generic Pebble brands were not near the quality and durability of Pebbletec and Pebblesheen. Many of the pool companies push the generic version because they don't have the license to sell Pebletec (except for Adams). The downside is that it leaves you with limited negotiating power because only Adams and Aqua Gunite can sell and apply Pebbletec in the Bay area.

As for the work process:

My pool remodel involves 4 different phases: stripping the plaster and tile, installing new tile, applying the Pebblesheen and finally acid washing and brushing the Pebbllesheen
The strip portion of the remodel was done in 2 days, the tile took one and the Pebblesheen application took another day. The last day they did the acid wash.
The work was done so quick that I could hardly believe it.

The workers all showed up on time everyday and worked really hard ,non stop.
A really important point is that Aqua Gunite (unlike Corby Gould and many others) doesn't sub contract it's work. That gives you the peace of mind knowing who is doing the job..and backing the work!

The price of the job for genuine Pebblesheen was competitive, (and $2500 cheaper than Adams) and the result is a BEAUTIFUL " Black Onyx" Pebblesheen pool! Sharon even suggested (and threw in) crushed Abalone Shells for highlights! Sweet!

As you probably can tell, I highly recommend Aqua Gunite!

Very Unprofessional. Stay away from these guys if you don't want to get ripped-off. They signed a contract with me to complete the replastering of my SPA in three days and it has been almost 3 weeks and there is no sign of completion. They have dug-up our SPA and never showed up again. When I called them, they say you need to do such and such thing and unless that is done we cannot proceed. That is going to cost you much more. Now we are stuck, we cannot engage anbody else and are at their mercy. Pl be very careful of these guys and dont get fooled by their competative bid. They are going to come back and jack it up in the middle of your project. Pl make sure you have penalties if they do not complete on time

I spent allot of time researching and interviewing pool contractors before deciding on Aqua Gunite. I knew my pool remodel would not be easy but wanted to conserve money by not removing concrete, etc. They did a great job, were always quick to either answer the phone or return my calls ( the owner Jose gave his personal cell andI would leave messages on the rare occassion he would not answer). They are a soup to nuts contractor and handle everything in house. There were issues that arose during my remodel and were dealt with by Aqua Gunite above and beyond what I had expected. I have had several homes and done many large and small remodel projects and they were definitely one of the best companies I have dealt with. I would recommened them to family and friends.

After researching on the web for good solutions to old plaster in my swimming pool. I found Aqua Gunite, as a company recommended for installation by the manufacture of the products. I called and spoke with Sharon the Construction Coordinator. I could tell immediately that she knew what she was talking about. Sharon was frank, clear and easy to understand and my confidence was firmly established. She was so capable and I could tell honesty that my decision to use Aqua Gunite was made and from the follow up from onsite inspection by Aqua Gunites salesman Michael, who came out to measure the pool for this process.
Michael came out and spent well over and hour and answered every one of my questions professionally and thoroughly, he had a good picture to back up every one of my questions. I came away from my time spent with Michael knowing that I was going to understand the entire work process and more importantly confident that I would enjoy and be able to care for my pool for many years to come.
The Aqua Gunite work crew backed up everything both Sharon and Michael told me. They were absolutely great. All the workers were very polite and did their job exactly as I pictured they would. I could see they were very disciplined in their trade. Their performance left me with a complete sense of confidence. They showed on time and attended to my desired cleanliness and left the pool area clean after very single phase. Their owner Jose was very impressive because he was very competent and clearly very honest. I liked the fact he checks on every job they do. He came out to look at the quality of his men??s work. This shows pride in ownership.
The pool is done now, Tahoe Blue Pebbletec and new beautiful tile and looks sensational. The salesman Michael is helping me balance my pool water now that the pool is filled adding to my extremely favorable opinion of a rare but very much appreciated job well done. I would recommend Aqua Gunite to every one thinking about remodeling their pool. You will be more than pleased with the great value in craftsmanship.

I was careful when selecting a company to resurface my pool and install new tile. In my independent research it became very apparent that Pebbletec was the best resurface product on the market. I simply concluded that all the rest of the products were ??knock-offs?. The service provided was excellent from the salesman, Michael Keller, to the guys who did the work. Michael came well organized and equipped to show me the pebbletec samples and even other high quality surface materials available to me through Aqua Gunite . He also carried many tile samples from which I was able to select one that turned out to be a great choice. Sharon in the office was efficient and responsive and I knew what was going on at all times. I was very impressed that one of the owners came by every day to make sure that the job was going well. The work was done timely and in a professional clean manner. My pool color looks like I was told it would and the tile matches perfectly. Michael helped me balance my pool water chemicals and I checked in with almost every day for about two weeks after the pool was filled. I can??t say enough about what a great company Aqua Gunite is.
