Azalea Pools spent the time to listen to our design ideas and creatively captured the vision we had for our backyard oasis. It was a large and complex pool/hot tub project that included hardscape, landscape, lighting, fireplace, and outdoor kitchen space. Azalea Pools was willing to take on our demanding project, when other pool builders were unwilling to do so. From the beginning of the process, we were impressed with their attention to detail, their efforts to over engineer the steel package, and their expert craftsmanship. The entire team was very friendly, professional, and hard-working. Will, the owner, was always open to new ideas and willing to modify as needed along the way. We weren’t prepared for the length of time it would take to complete our project… Even though Will did tell us it would take some time. But to be fair, this was a very involved endeavor. In the end, the stress of it all was well worth the final outcome. We absolutely love our amazing pool! We are currently enjoying it while I type this review! We can’t thank Azalea Pools enough for fulfilling our dream! I would absolutely, highly recommend Azalea Pools for your pool project/backyard needs.

Azalea Pools did an amazing job on bringing my vision to life by creating a tropical oasis in our backyard. When I was looking for a good pool company, I got three different quotes and asked a lot of questions. I decided on Azalea Pools bc they use twice the amount of water circulators as other companies so the water is very clean cutting back on the amount of salt and chemicals needed and they also use larger pipes than other pool companies which is very beneficial in preventing plumbing issues. Our pool, spa, firepit and decking are all gorgeous customized and after a year we have had no issues whatsoever. Our backyard looks like an upscale resort. They were super easy to work with and eager to please. For peace of mind and the best quality workmanship, I wouldn’t use anyone else to build my pool or hardscape.

We love our pool and entertainment area that Azalea Pools designed and constructed for us. We provided the basic elements we wanted (pool, built in grill with stone counters, firepit, etc) to Will. Heather took those and designed an amazing outdoor living space. Will handled all permits and communications with county personnel. As part of the construction we had to move our septic system. Will secured a septic expert and ensured that was handled as well. The Azalea Pools construction crew was professional, hard working and highly skilled. As a team, Azalea Pools did an amazing job of designing and creating a luxury outdoor space for our family and friends to enjoy.
