Fibreglass pool

These guys were fantastic! From the site selection to the very end of the installation they were great. Super personable hard working team of guys who know exactly what they are doing. When variables came up they worked them out seamlessly. When I had a question or an idea I got through to Mark right away or he would get back to me as soon as he got the message. There were no surprises. It went as perfectly as it could have. My family and I couldn't be happier with the pool. We're excited to spend as much time enjoying it as we can! believe me when I say that not only did I do my research on who to have install our pool and what company makes the best fibreglass pool in the industry but I knew first hand from working in the concrete industry that these pools are the best. A few bucks more than a traditional vinyl liner pool but the benefits are enormous. Excellent work from an excellent company. Can't say enough about how happy we are with this pool project.

Beautiful backyard pool and landscaping

Dennis, Mark and the team were a pleasure to work with and provided us with a beautiful backyard oasis. They were flexible and informative, and although there were a couple of minor follow-up items they took care of these for us. The guys were great and kept us abreast of happenings or answered any emailed questions. We also had landscape work done with a company they often work with and it was nice how the two worked together. The pool is gorgeous and we are enjoying the end product!

In ground, Salt water, Fibreglass Pool

The guys at Durham Fibreglass Pools are professional, knowledgable and efficient. From the sales quote right through to the clean up, it is a pleasure dealing with Dennis, Mark and their crew. Dennis gave us great advice in choosing the perfect pool for our family's needs. We would recommend Durham Fibreglass Pools to anyone looking for a hassle free experience when purchasing a pool.

purchase and installation of a San Juan fibreglass pool

The first week of July placed a deposit and signed the contract. I was lead to believe the job would be done by mid August at the latest and that the fence was to code. I did research everywhere to find what I hoped was a reputable company. Dennis couldn't remember the directions of the fences in my back garden even after several reminders. He also had the pool too close to the back fence. I repeatedly told him 4 feet for plantings, I also so told his son and crew only to have them put it at 3 feet. Only after an intense phone conversation did they move it. The fence was not to code. The work didn't even begin until mid August. The pool didn't go in until mid September after they sent a stranger to pick up the $18,422.00 cheque. The concrete pad for the shed was poured without a conduit to protect the existing electrical. Not to code. I had to bring it to Dennis' attention as his communication with me was more miss than hit at best. The job wasn't completed until the week of Thanksgiving. When I requested a receipt for the work and the pool I was informed that my cancelled cheques would be the receipt. I can get a receipt for a $4 bag of milk, but not a $45,000.00 job. My experience with this company was a nightmare and I had many sleepless nights. I did address the lack of communication, it was acknowledged, but nothing changed. I am very disappointed and felt like I was treated like a third class citizen.

There were delays with the Project and some confusion as to logistics of which I take full responsibility. There are a couple of glaring misquotes..The fence at the rear of the property was built by the neighbour; not our company.We took down the gate and one section of fence of which we replaced after completion of job. ..... the "stranger" referred to is the owner's wife who is also the bookkeeper; ID was given..a very appropriate person to pick up cheque.....pool was completed in September and winterized in October ( circa Thanksgiving)

The product is completed and very beautiful; it was a difficult road getting there but it is complete

pool instalation

once I decided to get a fiberglass pool i started shopping around for a price, I got many quotes, which were all in the same ball park, but decided to go with Durham Fiberglass Pools. The deciding factor was Dennis and his presentation. He was the only person who seemed to know and care about his product. He had pictures of his previous jobs, samples of different pool colors, and a lot of knowledge of the products (pump, filter, etc.) He was the only person who had answers to all my questions without directing me to a web site.
Once the pool instillation started, we ended up having soil issues. It turned out my house was built on an old river and therefore the soil was to soft to support the pool i wanted to install. I had to get a soil engineer in to do soil samples and come up with a solution to keep the pool from sinking. We had to go with a 6' pool instead of an 8' one, and back fill the hole a bit with concrete. When i was told this all i could see is my budget going out the window, because i work in construction and i know companies charge a fortune for extras. Dennis and Mark did the opposite, they were quite understanding and charged me only fractions of what i thought i would be.
The pool is now finished and i couldn't be happier. Thanks to Dennis, Mark, and the rest of the team at Durham Fiberglass Pools..

Fiberglass Pool Installation

I contacted Durham Fiberglass Pools for a quote and was sold on fiberglasss as opposed to liner (which we had at our old house) after meeting with Dennis. It was a pleasure having Mark and his crew working at our home. Despite a rainy spring, Dennis pulled it all together in time for my daughters Birthday Party. I would highly recommend Durham Fiberglass Pools if you are thinking of installing a pool. Fabulous people, fabulous service!

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Be patient ,remember they can not control the weather anymore than you can ,ask all of your friends that have pools what they would do different if they were to do it again

Pool and Enclosure Installation

We had found the enclosure but needed the appropriate pool AND a General Contractor for the project. Dennis and his DFG team had the ideal pool and swim jet system and performed the work well, despite some serious and time consuming ground water related issues. This was something of a learn-as-you-go project for DFG ourselves BUT the end result was spectacular despite the work dragging into the depths of winter and not getting completed until well into the spring.

Pool

Durham Fibreglass Pools has exceeded my expectations. The process from day 1 was great. The service we have received since the pool was installed has been as good as anyone could expect. Dennis is always available for any question no matter how small.

I highly recommend this company.
