BAnthony & Sylvan Pools
The project was to install a new pool from scratch. We started in Oct with the design of the pool. Overall the design process went well. The excavation took place in December and the concrete for the walls went in in Jan. From here, the schedule completely fell apart. Despite the amount of money you will pay for the pool, you as the customer will be expected to perform a lot of the oversight of the sub contractors and you are on the hook to clean up after them. March turned into April. By late April, we had figured out that our project manager had left the pool company. Our project made slow progress but by mid May the pool pump equipment was installed. By early June the pool deck was poured and the water was put in by the end of June. Despite having a new project manager, you will not see the PM on days when big events are happening, you will be on your own to make sure the project is put in correctly and that the sub contractors clean up after themselves. It is now late August and the pool has failed county inspection three times for various different issues. Do you expect hiccups along the way on a big project like a pool - Yes and we had quite a few. After all was said and done, A&S corporate headquarters stepped in and is doing what they can to ensure the project gets finished in the manner it should of be. Will you get a pool installed - Yes. Will you have to do a lot of supervision - Yes. However, for the amount of money that you will spend and how long you will look at the final product, I find it difficult to recommend using this company.

Great job. Pool Deck in Stamped Concrete looks amazing. Jeff and his crew did an outstanding job and completed our project on time in spite of having to finish as the Coronavirus took effect in our area.

Terrific job! The crews on site were all extremely helpful and super hard working. I was assigned a project manager who was with me from the beginning talking to me about the plan and timeline always answering calls and still helped answer questions for me after the job was all done. My new pool deck looks amazing and the pool is like a brand new pool.

A&S was great on all levels. The work was done in a timely and professional manner. The only delays were weather related, but A&S quickly rescheduled. The sales and service staff were great before, during , and after the install. Small issues arose (like any large project) but the A&S staff immediately corrected the issues. After completion, I utilized the pool service staff for a few service issues (covered under warranty) and the service was handled very quickly, resolving my small issues. More importantly no cost to me. I visited the Chantilly, Va, store on a regular basis for free water testing and all around pool care questions regarding the pool maintenance. The store was an Invaluable resource for a 1st time pool owner. Also, used them to open and close the pool for the summer and winter season. I would totaly recommend A&S for pool constrution, retail store, and service calls. Great company with outstanding service.

AAnthony & Sylvan Pools
Their work has always been "top-notch." Over the last 25 years, they replaced the tile twice, repaired the coping stones when needed, and last summer installed all new modern coping stones. This spring they are scheduled to re-plaster the pool for the second time in 25 years. They also assist with deck renovation by applying the mastic between the coping and surrounding pool deck. We are always pleased with results of their work. They provide the cost of the work upfront and always stick to the agreed price. Scheduling is tricky as it depends on the weather but once they begin the work, they stick with it until it is done without much downtime for use of the pool.

AAnthony & Sylvan Pools
Anthony & Sylvan installed the pool behind our home 30 years ago, so when it came time to renovate it, we went back to them for the work. The project was a complete overhaul of the pool and surrounding deck and involved many moving parts. The Anthony & Sylvan team was always in regular contact with us, accessible by email, telephone, and even text message. On the rare occasion when a subcontractor appeared on site without necessary information, it took no time at all to contact a responsible party at Anthony & Sylvan to get everyone back on track again. The project was largely on time, barring some weather delays and some other delays to which we equally contributed. But, most importantly, the project was on budget! Throughout the project, Anthony & Sylvan went to great lengths to make things right and to live up to the company’s stellar reputation. Following the project’s completion, we were able to get someone from Anthony & Sylvan to come out and correct a few things to make sure we were 100% happy with our pool’s performance. We also decided to have Anthony & Sylvan provide our weekly pool maintenance the following summer and install our brand-new pool heater. In short, this is an ethical, reliable, and professional company that stands by its work and its reputation. I am particularly moved to write this note having recently experienced another service provider’s comparative lack of professionalism. And it reminded me how much the folks at Anthony & Sylvan were willing to work with us to preserve the investment in our home. As a result, I will gladly refer my friends, relatives, and colleagues to Anthony & Sylvan.

AGreen Future Construction
I GC'd my own pool renovation which required a fair amount of coordination between 3 different contractors, Green Future being one of them. Green Future was contracted to replace a 20 year old cracked concrete pool deck (approx. 1,300 sq ft) with pavers. This was a difficult job, the existing concrete was in a difficult to reach area and removal of the concrete was hard. I'm a bit of a type A person, and Green Future was willing to work with my schedule, around the quirks of the other contractors, and whenever I contacted them both Joey and Thomas were there to take care of things as needed. I believe without their skill, professionalism, and willingness to go the extra mile, this project would have been a disaster due to the other two contractors. They've worked with pools before, so they knew how to the job right. And they way the did the hidden drains on the pavers was a work of art, and they drains were done properly with dry wells to absorb the runoff. And you can imagine at the end of the project things would be a mess. They cleaned it up so that you almost can't tell anything happened. By spring the mess will be forgotten By the way, the deck is BEAUTIFUL! Hiring these guys was the single best decision I made for this project. Thanks very much. I would pretty much hire them for any yard project.

AMottern Masonry Design
Mottern did an excellent job helping us design and install a backyard pool deck and patio. Mottern was quick to provide an estimate, and had good ideas at the design phase that were both attractive and economical. The crew did the work quickly (despite weather delays) and did high-quality work. We opted for a stamped concrete patio, and it looks great. The project was challenging because of the pool and grading around the house, and Mottern provided good solutions to drainage and other related issues.

They were great! Both Rick and Mary were patient and understanding. I asked a lot of questions and changed my mind a few times and still they were willing to make the changes and answer all my questions. I also asked for a lot of quotes during the job also still Rick was willing and very prompt and getting back to me with a price. Got a little worried at a couple of points during the job but always put my mind at ease. The work turned out beautiful and I have gotten a lot of compliments on my pool and deck.

ABright Construction Group
UPDATE: It's now spring of 2015 - work had to stop for the winter, but we got the concrete deck poured, the deck was stained and control joints cut. It looks amazing! Had a late start this spring due to the weather -- given the layout and the hilliness, we couldn't bring heavy equipment down the hill during rain, which there was quite a bit of, along with the cold. But once Bright started back up, things have moved very effectively and efficiently. These crews know exactly what they're doing. The foreman is extremely knowledgeable and they've been able to answer all of my questions. They've listened to my input in how I wanted things laid out, and they don't need any supervision once they know how I want things. They installed a retaining wall in front of the kitchen which is absolutely fabulous. It curves around rather than being angular, which I didn't think they could do. They helped me put in a PVC water pipe prior to pouring the footing so I could get water access to the wood deck just outside of the kitchen. The stairs down to the pool area are amazing - at least 10 feet wide at the top and 36 feet wide at the bottom. They look like stairs to a Mayan temple. They just finished putting in the paver pathway. I watched the work and they put down a very thick layer of stone and concrete dust, compacted it extremely well, then when it was ready, laid out the pavers. When they were in place, they put long bars of rebar along the edge, hammered in vertical rebar to hold the horizontal rebar in place, and then place concrete all around the edges covering the rebar, and ensuring the pavers would not move, even the pavers at the edges. The concrete edging is lower than the pavers for grass to cover, so it's not going to show, but it will do the job beautifully. The work is almost finished, and I'll put in a final update when we're done. If you have concrete and masonry work to do and you don't call Bright Construction Group (703-533-7422) then, frankly, I think you're wasting your time and money. PRIOR REVIEWS and UPDATES: Bright Construction is one of those companies that I consider in the top 5%. They started this project and move quickly, first meeting with me and going over the boundaries, what I wanted and so on. They dug huge holes for concrete piers, put in the wall beyond the pool on top of the piers, and then poured concrete to fill it all. They then backfilled that area, put in the wall with unbelievable footers between the pool and the house, took out the old deck, put in concrete steps that look like they lead to a Mayan temple (not kidding - wish I could post a picture) which they're putting facing stone and cap stone on this week. They've backfilled the whole pool area with fill from another job they're working on, and it's changed the way we view the pool area. It is absolutely amazing what these folks can do. They move quickly, and know exactly what they're doing. They are flexible -- I've changed the size of the concrete deck, extended the wall between the pool and the house, and have asked them to add these and other changes to the contract and bill. The CEO has been out a couple of times to see how things are going; the foreman is an expert in concrete and how to make things work. My realtor said recently that if I'm looking for a concrete construction, the Portuguese are the best. It turns out the CEO and the foreman are both Portuguese. After the first two days, the pool area was cleared, leveled, and concrete piers and footers across them were poured. Two concrete trucks, one concrete pump truck, and a couple of mid-sized kubota-like vehicles. This is a more difficult location to access, down a hill in the back yard. I'm very impressed. They know what they're doing, and it's clear that they have a lot of experience with this kind of work. This whole area had a lot of fill dirt laid down before the houses were built more than 45 years ago, so they had to dig the holes for the concrete piers (which are about 5-6 feet in diameter, I think) down to the soil below the fill dirt. They staggered the piers on one side of the pool area and tied them all together with rebar before they poured, so that the piers closest to the pool are tied in to the ones further from the pool, which prevents any movement and strengthens each individual pier. The concrete deck will be poured on top of the compacted fill dirt and the concrete piers -- it's 4000 psi concrete -- other quotes I had gotten from others were for 3500 psi concrete. Bright has been extremely flexible with the changes I've requested -- you don't really know some things in advance -- you have to wait until you see one part done before you realize you want to do the next part differently than originally envisioned. I'll update this review when the deck is poured and we're almost done with the work. At this point, if you want concrete work done, walls built, concrete stairs poured, stone work done, or any of the other things that they've done here in this pool renovation, you'd be wise to call Bright. I was really concerned about spending this much money and ending up with poor quality materials and work -- that is absolutely not the case here. They are doing excellent work, doing it very competently, and using very high quality materials. So happy, I've been going to their office to submit deposits every few weeks, without any prodding. Would I call them again for a significant job? Yes. Your money will be well spent.

AAnthony & Sylvan Pools
We have been in our home for just over one month now and I want everyone to know that I have been nothing but happy with Anthony & Sylvan thus far.  Not only is the pool beautiful and fun but their customer service has been superb.  Let me be more specific: I elected to have a peanut shaped pool and in-ground hot tub installed.  The pool is about 25,000 gallons and finished with a cobalt blue plaster.  It has slate stone coping and an inexpensive paver deck surrounding.  The design session with A&S was quick and easy.  They then worked with the builder to ensure the pool was completed on schedule - it was.  After we "signed" on the pool, I did some more research on pool equipment and options, etc and sent a very long email to the A&S design person.  He called me back right away and answered every detail point by point.  We even made a few changes based on the discussion - no extra charges or hassles.   Once the pool was filled with water, the A&S pool technician came out to teach me the basics for operating and maintaining the pool.  He was outstanding.  He gave me his cell phone number and asked me to call him directly if I ever had any trouble.  I took him up on that offer when I couldn't remember some parts of his instruction.  He graciously went over it again - no waiting and no layers of bureaucracy to get a simple answer.   30-days later another technician came out as scheduled to install the salt in the water and instruct me on the use of the salt chlorination system.  He was extremely knowledgeable and got me up to speed the first time. Thus far, I've had three problems with the pool.  The first was the heater for the hot tub.  It worked fine in "manual" mode, but only heated the water to 80 degrees when in the "remote control" mode.  They tried to help me with this over the phone but it proved unsuccessful.  Luckily, the technician for the salt was coming in a few days and he made an adjustment to the remote control software and got me up and working painlessly. The other two were pretty minor issues, but since one of the A&S executives reached out to me via email and asked if I had any concerns at all, I went ahead and forwarded these - I was mainly curious how he would respond.  I was impressed.  The two issues were 1) the water feature we have had a slight 'split' in the waterfall and 2) the cobalt blue plaster was a little 'splotchy' in areas.  He responded immediately and scheduled one of the senior technicians come out and take a look. This technician fixed my water feature in 3-seconds and told me that A&S allows for an "Acid Bath" treatment any time during the first three years of pool ownership.  He suggested I schedule this just prior to the spring 2014 startup.  He said it is done without draining the pool and will smooth out the colors as well as bring out the blue even more.  One additional note - I've enjoyed visiting our local A&S pool supply store. The manager there is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.  He has not tried to sell me chemicals I don't need.   That's it.  No cracks.  No leaks.  No products that don't work.  When I call the local A&S office I speak to a real person right away.  I call technicians directly if I have questions.  My pool is beautiful and I've been told I can expect 25-years of solid performance before I need to worry about re-plastering.  I couldn't be happier with our builder's decision to use A&S.

ABrookstein Services
Brookstein services does absolutely top-notch work, with a very high level of attention to detail. Joe Brookstein was involved personally throughout the planning and execution of our project. He provided good input during the planning process on the material that was going to be used, and helped us plan the size and shape for our new deck, which replaced an old deck that was too small. Joe was also involved throughout project execution, and was very responsive when issues came up. Joe's team did beautiful work throughout the project, and they were always responsive when something needed some extra attention, or there were problems to be addressed. Joe's team was able to fit in additional landscaping work that we identified during the project on a very short turn-around. The end result is a beautiful new pool deck that we will be enjoying for many years to come.

We had a very large pool renovation so we utilized Angie's List to put together a list of contractors to get estimates from. Victor was very nice and provided a very competitive quote. After receiving estimates from approximately 10 contractors for the concrete portion of the renovation we decided to go with Anthony's Construction and Concrete based on the quote, our impression of Victor, and his rating with both Angie's list and the BBB. The job was performed as quoted and we are pleased with the overall quality and appearance of the work.Victor's crew and foreman Frank were all very pleasant to work with and seemed very knowledgeable about the jobs they were performing. I would highly recommend Victor, Frank, and Anthony's Construction for anyone who has an upcoming concrete project. We will eventually be replacing our driveway and front sidewalk and Anthony's Construction will be my first and very likely only call. *** So as an update. Anthony's Construction claims to have a 5yr Warranty with all of their work however we have several cracks in our pool deck and they have been unresponsive in trying to get these fixed. I first tried to contact Victor around 6/15/15.   -  After not getting a call back I tried calling Victor again on 6/24/15. Victor called me back and said he would be by to take a look at the cracks and let me know when they could be fixed.   - I did not hear from Victor for over a month so I called him back on 9/1/15. Victor called me back later that day and said he would check the weather over the weekend and call me back on Monday 9/7/15. Victor never called me back.   - I called Victor on 11/2/15. No response   - I called Victor on 11/17/15. No response.   - I called Victor on 12/14/15. No response.  I saw a similar review to this but unfortunately I disregarded it because Victor seemed very responsive throughout the process of the quote and getting the work done. Additionally as a part of the original quote Victor said they would use rebar and wire mesh when pouring the concrete which neither was used. If I hadn't shown up before the concrete was poured I would not have known. When I asked Victor about this he claimed that the pool had not been properly grounded so he had to use fiber reinforced concrete rather than rebar or wire mesh. It appears this information was incorrect and there should have either been rebar or wire mesh used which could be the reason we are already having  issues with cracking. Obviously I should have halted the work and consulted another contractor before letting the work proceed.

AKnott's Construction
Mr. Ray Knott arrived for a consult within 4 days of my initial call.  He promised a price in 6 days, called after 3 with a couple questions, and the estimate arrived as promised.  The price was much better than other companies that were pushing their "better" materials (vinyl decking/rails, etc) and 'better' installation (screws, not nailed, etc).  Ray priced exactly what I was looking for, made suggestions for things that would meet MY needs better, and agreeably worked up prices for some changes I thought of after the initial consult. When asked when he could start, he very honestly told me 'right away, or about a month from now', as he was scheduled to start a big job the next week.  They arrived when scheduled, reviewed with me and the workers what was to be done, and then worked great.  The crew was polite and friendly, but never interfered with me on the days I was home.  Ray kept me apprised of what was done, and still to be done, and cheerily added the doggie door, steps, etc, that I added as the job went on.  When I discussed the ceiling I wanted, he had not originally understood what I wanted, so added it, charging me only for the materials.  I was provided with a written itemized receipt for the additional work and materials added over the original estimate.  We had just had a new pool installed and the deck had to be raised and expanded to fit it.  They finished this the first day and made sure we had access.  They even came on Saturday morning to lay the top decking, so we would have safe access to the pool and deck for Father's day on Sunday.  In addition to the pool deck, the job included building a new deck to join 2 existing decks, adding a screen room with a A roof on one end, and steps down to the yard on the other.  He decided to add new top rails to the existing decks to improve the look of the finished project.  The finished job is awesome, exactly what we wanted.  The quality is great, and they cleaned up beautifully when they were done.  I have already had Ray back to look at another smaller job we want done.

AXtra Care Landscaping & Design INC
Like everyone who is about to start a new renovation project, we started our search for a company that will meet our aesthetic taste, budget and time frame. We found all of that and more in Xtra Care Landscaping. We bought our house after it was unoccupied for over a year and landscaping was neglected for many many years. We knew it was going to be a big project. We chose Xtra Care because of the high score they received on Angie's list and frankly because of how beautiful their designs and end product looks like. They certainly delivered with our landscaping work !!! We engaged with them for our front yard design during the Fall of 2015. The process was not just extremely professional, but also pleasant and fun! Starting with the creative landscape designer who really listened to my personal taste through the manager who understood our time restrictions as well as the importance of staying in budget and ending with all the dedicated staff members.  Our front yard looks amazing!!! Our neighbors can't stop complimenting and many of them already did some work with Xtra Care. After the success and great experience we had with them on our front yard, right when spring 2016 came, we started another, much bigger, project of our back yard.  Since we have a pool that needed renovation too, the landscaping and pool company needed to work together syncing timelines and in full cooperation, and it all went well. The landscaping included not just redesign of beds and plants but also demolition of old concrete and reinstalling new pavers, running pipes for drainage system and building a waterfall. All work was done professionally, beautifully and on time! (even with some weather interruptions). The transformation is indescribable! The back yard is gorgeous! Finally matching our beautiful front yard. It was a pleasure working with every staff member of Xtra Care. Highly recommended. Thank you, Sigal

Recent Review: IT WENT FABULOUS!!  We chose Sylvan Pools AGAIN because the experience we had when we installed our pool in 1986 was such a great experience.  Again, Anthony/Sylvan delivered.  Our pool is more beautiful than when we initially had it built in '86.  The coping, lighting, deck and finish are absolutely amazing.  I can't say enough good things about Hart Berkowicz, he is a consummate professional, knows pools inside and out.  His recommendations, insight, opinions and experience in pools makes him the perfect person to contact if you are thinking about installing a pool.  Every crew member who worked on our pool was professional - they showed up on time, worked long, hard hours in the heat and humidity.  From the demolition crew, the coping crew, deck crew (R&D Masonry), electrical, plumbing, and office staff are absolutely amazing. We had our pool installed in 1986 and have NEVER regretted it.  Countless hours of family fun over the years made the decision to put a pool in the best thing we did for ourselves.  IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING A POOL, CALL HART BERKOWICZ AT ANTHONY/SYLVAN POOLS!!

Two concrete trucks, one concrete pump truck, and a couple of mid-sized kubota-like vehicles. This is a more difficult location to access, down a hill in the back yard. I'm very impressed. They know what they're doing, and it's clear that they have a lot of experience with this kind of work. This whole area had a lot of fill dirt laid down before the houses were built more than 45 years ago, so they had to dig the holes for the concrete piers (which are about 5-6 feet in diameter, I think) down to the soil below the fill dirt. They staggered the piers on one side of the pool area and tied them all together with rebar before they poured, so that the piers closest to the pool are tied in to the ones further from the pool, which prevents any movement and strengthens each individual pier. The concrete deck will be poured on top of the compacted fill dirt and the concrete piers -- it's 4000 psi concrete -- other quotes I had gotten from others were for 3500 psi concrete. Bright has been extremely flexible with the changes I've requested -- you don't really know some things in advance -- you have to wait until you see one part done before you realize you want to do the next part differently than originally envisioned. I'll update this review when the deck is poured and we're almost done with the work. At this point, if you want concrete work done, walls built, concrete stairs poured, stone work done, or any of the other things that they've done here in this pool renovation, you'd be wise to call Bright. I was really concerned about spending this much money and ending up with poor quality materials and work -- that is absolutely not the case here. They are doing excellent work, doing it very competently, and using very high quality materials. So happy, I've been going to their office to submit deposits every few weeks, without any prodding. Would I call them again for a significant job? Yes. Your money will be well spent.
