At the end of the day, I am 120% satisfied with every other aspect of the pool. Brian dialed the quartz color in beautifully, the new plumbing flows soo much better than the old plumbing, and I continue to get compliments on the Oceanside

We had Skinner re-plaster our pool in time for a large Easter party. They knew we had a firm deadline with the party. The job was completed early and we were able to finish the plaster start-up process and have people swimming at Easter.

I had them re-plaster a pool and it went very smooth and turned out beautifully. Will use them again for a second property I have.

Brett came out and gave us on honest bid. I liked him immediately. This is a mom & pop pool replaster company that only does this type of work. Best warranty in the business and they have been redoing pools in the valley for over 40 years.

Absolutely Amazing! Brett from Skinner Pools was the first estimate we got to re-plaster our pool. We continued to get other bids because this is an expensive thing and figured we should shop around. But as each one after the other

March 2013 Update\r

In conclusion, Brian did try and help me slightly on costs with other parts of the job (plumbing, concrete removal, etc.) but the coping was non-negotiable in Brian's eyes.\r

The net-net, I had to replace my deck

I'm currently in dispute with Skinner regarding the coping that was installed on my pool on May 25th, 2012. Brian Skinner refuses to repair it, despite his crew communicating one thing (1/8 of an inch slope) and doing another (1/2 and inch slope). Not to mention that it's at twice the slope of the general "rule of thumb" (1/4 inch per foot). This slope has the added benefit of providing multiple trip hazards, not a good combination for my children or their grandparents. As other pool contractors have said to me, their reputation is worth more than the price to fix this mistake. Though it doesn't seem like that's the same feeling Skinner has.

I will update this feed once there's conclusion, but right now I'm not holding my breath.

Grate pool, perfect size and always always the right temperature of the water. I feel like home.

The plaster finish was smooth, but the surface was not even, varying by 1/2" or so when checked with a 5' straight-edge. In addition, the tile trim-strips they put in along the edge of the steps were not straight. Brian said that all these variations meet Skinner's standards. When they washed the concrete deck after plastering, they left plaster-spray everywhere, even on the legs of the patio furniture. They claimed it wasn't their fault, so I had to acid-wash everything myself to clean it up. They also left a lot of caulk-strings on the tile, which they did clean up when I complained. I suggested that they cancel the final invoice as compensation (about a 7% discount), but they did not. Dealing with Skinner has been the most negative experience I've ever had with a contractor.

Your work is excellent...love the way my pool turned out. Appreciate your return work after I called about a water leak. My communication with your company was not always easy (Izzy did her best on my behalf). A suggestion would be to set

Dont hire them. They replastered my pool with white plaster and before it was filled the plaster was discolored gray with streaking. They are dishonest and will not stand by their work. Additionally, their price is cheaper probably because they take a huge short cut by water blasting and not removing all the plaster down to the gunite. Ask them about their process and there is little old plaster removed. After they plastered my pool it looks worse than my original 20 year old original pool plaster. You will be sorry if you use them. Email me and I can show you the horrible job they did on my pool.

I almost had them replaster our pool. However, when they were scheduled to begin the work they suddenly discovered $1500 to $2000 in extra cost to do the job (despite having visited the site twice before). I am not a pool expert by any means, and for all I know the costs may have been reasonable. However, instead of explaining in detail why the steps were necessary, they gave a curt one line explanation. When I pressed for a more comprehensive exlpanation I was flately told to take my buisness elsewhere. I don't know about you, but defensiveness and secrecy do not inspire me with confidence in a contractor.
