''We have two young children and aren't really beach people so we wanted a pool in the backyard to entertain. I knew Pugliese brand name was equally impressed with Tom and the Pugliese process when we first met. The cost made us choose another pool builder who after failing to meet deadlines we cancelled and called Tom. Happily, we came to understand that you get what you pay for and cheaper is not worth the trouble. The design/build process went very smoothly with Tom as point man was ready day and night to answer our questions. Tom was very helpful especially in finding ways to keep cost within our budget; he suggested alternate materials that would work as well. We are really satisfied and are absolutely glad to recommend Pugliese Pools. Tom is a class act who delivered a high-quality backyard pool setting that has been the entertainment house for our family and neighborhood. The backyard pool is so relaxing that we feel we're on a resort vacation. It's a sanctuary.'' — Brenda L.>> Read More << >> Close White Panel <<
''When we asked other people about pool builders none were happy. There were always problems after construction. From our first meeting with Tom, his personalty, his attention to detail, we could tell he was a perfectionist. During construction any questions were answered and he was flexible with changes. Tom can see a project as a whole project so he considers all construction aspects that contribute to the final product. It is clear that he is motivated by what is best for the project not what is best for his own pocket. I am amazed that other pool builders don't copy his design/build approaches. Tom's approaches should be industry standards.
Dealing with Pugliese Pools is worry free. Simply put with Pugliese you're getting your own resort. As a home builder myself with insights and expertise about quality building, I can't say enough about Tom and Pugliese Pools.'' — Bill B.
''We saw Pugliese Pools as best of the best after we went on site to see various Pugliese pools. Tom is a fantastic, true professional that takes care of every nook and cranny during process. When you use Pugliese Pools, you get a masterpiece. Quick story. Several months after our pool project was done, I called Tom on a Friday, July 3 about a broken blower in our hot tub. Amazingly on this 4th of July weekend, Tom showed up the next morning and installed a new blower himself. I recommend Tom to everybody 100%. Working with Tom is like sitting down with family. Tom clearly reviewed each step of pool build process. Not surprisingly everything was 100% perfect with the final pool. The difference from other pool builders is difference between cookie cutter and custom work.'' — Tom D.
''We wanted a new pool for our kids. To me Tom was a good fit because he was more knowledgeable and straight forward than other pool builders we met. We especially liked the wide variety of pools from his photos of past pool projects The design and build process was very smooth. He kept us well informed and even added extras that made the job even better. Tom was on top of everything especially with getting town permits. This was a relief to us since we had heard other pool builders made customers wait for months before getting required town permits.''— Kelly F. Mendham
''We wanted a stylish pool before our kids got too old and after we decided not to buy beach house. The Pugliese Pool name and reputation has prestige. We contacted two other pool builders yet were more comfortable and impressed with Tom's ideas, pool background of 40 years and his honest way. We wanted his pool ideas and were pleased at his sharing and listening throughout the process. Tom took care of everything from start to finish which was a great relief for us.'' — Bindia P.
''We wanted a new pool and backyard retreat for daughters after we decided to leave our local community swim pool. We were looking for and found a pool builder in Tom who could run full project and take full control. The design and build process went smoothly especially with Tom keeping us up to date all the time. Despite bad weather delays, Tom kept his promise and had our new pool, spa and landscaping ready by Memorial Day. In fact, he had it ready a week earlier than he promised. With our new pool, our daughters don't miss the beach and we have more quality family time. Our fun backyard is an extension of our house almost like another room. We especially liked that Tom was available at all times and offered more quality choices of pool design, stonework, filters, etc. We highly recommend Tom because he gets it done and he is all about quality.'' — Lisa A.
''I wanted the same pool lifestyle I had growing up. I had planned to go with another firm until I met with Tom and realized that the other pool builder had left out expensive add ons in his estimate. In my research I came to know and gain trust in the Pugliese Pool name especially in light I heard bad stories about other pool builders whose pool projects ended with many problems after construction was done. Four years later my Pugliese Pool, hot tub, patio and outdoor fireplace are still great. I was impressed with Tom's innovative design during build process when he faced a big challenge of how to fit a swimming pool design within the overhead power line constraints.'' — Dr. Howard B.>> Close White Panel <<
