A review for Pools For Home

Jan 04, 2011, Oakville

We had an inground pool installed by Marc LeBlanc from Pools for Home fall of 09. The job was very difficult as it required major retaining wall installation to accommodate a sloping grade as we back on to a ravine. Marc was the only contractor we spoke with who had both the vision and confidence to tackle the job. My wife and I had even hired a a landscape architect to redesign the yard, but we weren't happy with the outcome and had become frustrated with our lack of options. However, Marc understood right away what it was we were trying to accomplish and was able to design something that matched what were looking for - a yard that has a balance of useable lawn, play structure and pool. We regularly get a "wow" compliment from visitors - especially those who knew what our yard looked like before. In addition to the pool, Marc also installed yard lighting, a fire pit, and introduced us to an excellent carpenter who constructed a pergola and pool equipment screen. The installation took slightly longer than planned, but it was a tricky job. The craftsmanship is excellent, as has been the post installation support. Marc is always responsive and I have never had to chase him down for even the smallest request. It is obvious that he takes pride in his work and that he knows what he is doing. The work we had done was not cheap and it is not for most people's budgets. However, I am delighted by the outcome and glad we took Marc's advice throughout various aspects of the project. As the saying goes - you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend Pools for Home to anyone considering a new pool or replacement of an existing pool.
