“Just as the men arrived to begin the contracted job on my deck and pool, Mike (Gardner Operations Manager) arrived, introduced himself and with his card told me not to worry about a thing and to call him with any questions. It was a great assurance as this “adventure” of mine began. I was apprehensive that I had made the right decision. It turned out that I had. Each day, Mike appeared, oversaw the workers and was responsive to any concerns that I had. I am very pleased with the result. Thank you.”
— Anna Trot

“Gardner Pools is the greatest!

Gardner did a beautiful job on myr pool and spa (resurfacing with the Blue granite pebble). The workmen were very professional and hard working. Each crew was exceptional and their skill levels are top notch. I was kept informed on a daily basis. I could not have asked for anymore. I would recommend you to anyone and have done so already.

Thank you so very much!”

“We did a lot of research on pool remodels before choosing Gardner Pool & Outdoor Remodeling. It’s surprising how many fly-by-night contractors there are. We chose Gardner because it was obvious they got it right. They have an excellent reputation in Anaheim and Orange County. Plus they were referred by someone we know in our gated community.

And actions speak louder than words. Dave, our project manager, was attentive. He gave us great advice with no overselling and no price gouging. The crew is definitely a team; they work together like family.

We had the house painted just before the pool remodel project and were a little worried about the mess. As a property manager and long-time homeowner, we’ve had a lot of experience with contractors. Again, Gardner handled everything with professionalism. The demo process went smoothly, dismantling only the areas outlined in the project. The crew was timely, courteous and responsive, leaving the job site clean. As with any type of construction project, touch-ups were needed but they were minimal which was a very pleasant surprise.

We look forward to working with Gardner again on our front yard!” – B & D Cole

“The entire staff — from corporate to masonry and everyone in between — were always friendly and helpful throughout the process. The pool looks great! Add me to your list of satisfied customers and use me for a reference anytime!” – Jeff Merlino

“I interviewed five pool remodeling companies. Since I am a Construction Inspector, I know what to look for, especially in areas where it’s easy to cut corners. I watched the job site closely and was very impressed with the crew. My project involved major masonry — coping, expensive glass tile, ledgestone on planter boxes. This type of work is labor intensive and the crew was very meticulous. They delivered quality, precise and beautiful work.

From the sales process to final job site clean up, Gardner did an impressive job. They arrived when they said they would, did what they were supposed to do, took initiative to get things done quickly, and produced gorgeous results. ” – Alex Long

“Every single person that worked on our pool was great. The project was done on time; everyday our yard and work areas was left clean and neat. The results were terrific.” – Ron Poulsen

“”What an amazing experience I had with Gardner Outdoor Pool & Remodeling. The people that worked on my pool were nice, polite, efficient and clean. The project was smooth and fast.

It’s nice to see a company value and appreciate those who work for them. The final result is a beautiful pool.” – Sandra Chansler

 I just wanted to thank all of you for the second to none professionalism and customer service.  Your response to concerns, follow up, attention to detail, knowledge of the products and process, and the way Gardner and PebbleTec stand behind the products and the workmanship show how important it is to select a company that will respond and follow up as you have all done, even if the cost is higher.  Your after sale and remodel support has been outstanding.  Feel free to quote us. So far the pool is looking great and we hope stays that way.  Please also extend our thanks to all the crews that worked so hard to resolve the issues with the PebbleTec remodel.  We could have not picked a better and more responsible company or a better product.  We will wholeheartedly recommend you to our neighbors and acquaintances and leave good feedback. – Richard K.
