  • Brad,

    Just wanted to let you know how completely satisfied Kathy and I are with every aspect of our pool and fire pit. The entire process was a joy from the first interview we sat down and discussed the design, through each step of the process which you were involved with.

    You were involved in each step at the finite detail of each process. You went out of your way to ensure we were satisfied customers. You even came over and helped get the pool set up for a family function over the fourth of July when I was on a fishing trip. That is going above and beyond what is expected. 

    I’ve built three pools now over the past 20 years and the one you built has been the least problem some build and has given me zero problems for going on 2 years now! I'm always telling people about our experience with Gatz and if I am ever going to build another or add on to my backyard you have my business!

    Thanks for your professionalism and understanding customer satisfaction is so important.

  • After hearing dozens of nightmare pool builder stories, we finally ran across a couple who recommended Brad Gatz and said their experience with him was wonderful. From the first time we met with Brad to talk about what we were envisioning for our back yard, we knew he was detail oriented, organized, and a perfectionist at what he does.

    The day of excavation, he was present during the entire dig, paying attention to every detail and that continued throughout the entire pool build process. If he wasn't in our backyard overseeing the work that was taking place, he was easy to reach and always responsive to calls and texts. Even after our final payment was made, Brad still made sure everything was to our liking and that it was complete.

    He truly cares about his clients and his finished product, unlike a lot of our friends who have used big pool companies. We cannot say enough about the fast, smooth process or our beautiful pool which everyone compliments and raves about. Use Brad Gatz and you won't be disappointed!

  • Here are some things we were looking for as we decided on the right pool builder. First, we wanted someone that was hands on with the pool building process. About 10 years ago, we had a pool built in Florida from a big brand name company... The salesman was great. He painted a pretty picture and gave us pictures of our dream backyard. After we signed the agreement and gave the first down payment, we never saw him again. Anytime we had questions, we had to call the main office and dealt with a different person every time.
    So as we are building our second pool, having someone who was hands on through the entire pool building process was a top priority for us. Building a pool is a messy project and having the Brad (the owner) there through the entire process made it much easier and less stressful. As questions came up, it's great to have someone there who knows the answers and how to address them on the spot. Brad takes a lot of pride in his pools and wanted to make sure we were completely 100% happy through the process. Also, Gatz Custom Pools was highly recommended through out our community. Seems like all the people we spoke to about their experience with Gatz Custom Pools, pretty much said the same things... "Great service and very hands on!"
    I know there are many pool companies out there that built hundreds, if not thousands more than Gatz Custom Pools... But if you're looking for someone who takes true pride in his work and is very hands on through the entire process... please consider Gatz Custom Pools.

  • To all future pool owners:

    When considering a long-term investment, a sound decision will typically include becoming educated in the product you are considering purchasing. Prior to all significant purchases that I make (or have made), I seek a genuine relationship. Through the relationship, and consequential to the level of mutual respect ascertained, a buyer and provider can each contribute to a common goal. Brad Gatz offers a personal relationship which he backs with professional accountability. Brad is a “hands-on” builder which employs a strong sub-contractor portfolio. I personally witnessed the sub-contractors take as much pride in their work as Brad did from a general contractor perspective. My expectations and specifications were significant. Each was met. I have a new friend with Mr. Brad Gatz. You will too!

  • Dear Brad,

    We wanted to take some time to let you know how much we enjoy our new pool and fire pit from Gatz Custom Pools. This is our second pool you have built for us and we love it even more than the first. The materials and design are so beautiful and functional. We love looking out at it through the living room window, and thoroughly enjoy sitting out on the patio and deck and taking advantage of the atmosphere created by the water feature and fire pit. The hot-tub is cozy in the winter, and the sports style pool allows for loads of fun for all our pool-party guests. We have found that the equipment provided makes maintenance easy and requires very little time each week. Our experience with our first pool you built was the same, and it led us to ask you to build this one when we moved.

    We also want to commend you for the excellent level of customer service you provided through both the building process and post-build inquiries. You are always quick to respond when we have questions. We really liked your active approach with your contractors as you were on site nearly every day during the construction of both pools. We have been so delighted with our experiences with you that we have recommended you to several friends and acquaintances and they too seem to love their pools.

  • We are very happy we chose Gatz Custom Pools. We liked the fact that Brad (the company owner) was always our contact throughout the process and that he personally oversees the pool construction. Brad did a great job listening to what we wanted out of our pool and we were happy to see how he transformed our comments and thoughts into our free-form pool/spa design and rock waterfalls.

    Building a pool is a huge investment and Brad's calm demeanor and hands on approach made us feel very comfortable before, during (even in the times we changed our minds), and post pool build. We know if we ever have a question or concern we can easily reach out to Brad! We look forward to enjoying our pool, spa, and outdoor area year-round!

  • Our experience with Gatz Custom Pools was great. Our pool was completed on schedule, and on budget. Brad was always available and continuously involved in each step of the build process. He was able to accommodate our requests for special custom elements, and his trades (particularly his masons) are very talented. The end result is better than we'd imagined; it's now a pleasure to spend time in our backyard.
