After weathering both Wilma and Katrina storms, it was time to renew and revitalize my pool area and backyard. Having decided to forgo the screen enclosure, I wanted to create an extension to my home that provided a living space where people could gather as well as make better use of the pool. In addition to creating additional space around the pool, there was also a need to address drainage problems from which the patio area had suffered for years. The associates at Van Kirk & Sons understood my goals and turned my vision into a reality. Working alongside my personal designer, a plan was created that merged and addressed both my aesthetic desires and practical concerns. I knew from the initial sketch that we were on the same wavelength, but I never imagined that the end result would materialize into my own personal tropical oasis.
I was able to make selections and provide input based on a tremendous variety of products and hands-on samples accessible on-site in the beautiful showroom. Throughout the project every memeber of the Van Kirk team was professional, showing up to the site in Van Kirk shirts and cleaning up the worksite at the end of the day. There was even another pool contractor doing work in the neighborhood that stopped by to ask if he and is client could see my project, and commended on the fact that it was a top-notch professional job.
Many thanks for a job well done and best wishes for continued success.
