Our Clients' Remarks
“We worked with Jeff and his crew on our pool and hot tub and they came out gorgeous. Everyone says our back yard looks like a resort! Jeff was responsive and actively involved the entire time, his crew was professional and competent, and they moved the project forward quickly. They listened to our ideas, provided many options and made changes as we wanted them. We could not be happier with how everything turned out. We completely recommend Pools By Design!
– Stephanie S.
We engaged Pools by Design (more appropriately Jeff T) for what turned out to be a game changing pool project. We have lived in our house since 1968. We have a beautiful backyard with a large patio. Adding a pool was a change we could imagine but not see. Jeff was very low-key but knowledgeable.
Despite the pandemic, very challenging shortages and the increasing popularity of pools, when Jeff made a promise he kept it. The workmanship is impeccable.
All of the following could be said of any top-quality pool contractor. Pools By Design certainly fits that bill. What is truly remarkable is Jeff’s genius to imagine the final product and make it happen. He envisioned, and gave us, a work of art. We could not be more happy or impressed.
– The Boyle’s
We highly recommend Pools By Design NJ. Jeff and his team did an incredible job from design to construction. Construction had its set of challenges due to our property’s configuration, but Jeff was able to come up with solutions every step of the way. We truly enjoyed working with the entire crew and have never met a person as responsive as Jeff. Project came up better than expected, we would use Pools By Design again if we needed to.

“A pool project is exciting but also stressful. Transforming your backyard is a big investment involving dozens of decisions big and small throughout the process. Jeff was great to work with from initial concept all the way through the punch list. He always did what we said he would do and was very responsive. We would send him emails or texts at all hours with ideas or questions. He always responded right away and steered us in the right direction on design and costs. His upfront contract and pricing are thorough and account for just about every possible contingency or change order. It’s all open book with no surprises. Any project of this scope will have challenges along the way. But I can’t imagine it being run any more smoothly than the way Jeff handled it. The end result is incredible.” 

–  The Engelhardt’s

Jeff and the Pools By Design team are exceptional. Honest and transparent from the outset to the end.  When there were unforeseen challenges Jeff and the team worked with us to find the best solution. We can’t say enough good things, total professionals from Jeff himself to everyone he worked with. The project management was exceptional mitigating any potential delays. I wish all projects were this good of an experience. Thanks to all involved.”

“We are thrilled with our new pool and the job done by Jeff T at “Pools by Design.” Starting with a small (yet comfortable) backyard, and limitations related to municipal zoning and impervious coverage, we now have a beautiful pool and landscaping that has brought us daily peace, pleasure and exercise.  We love our home, and this has certainly become the centerpiece of our family life.  We smile each day we walk out back, and so appreciate the work of art that “Pools by Design” created…thank you Jeff T!!  Do not hesitate to direct your prospective clients this way – believe that they too will understand the value of a dedicated pool builder!

– Beth & Herb Lazarus, Tenafly, NJ

We love our new pool!  We highly recommend Pools by Design.  Jeff and his team did an excellent job from the initial design to the finished product.  Jeff communicated well, was punctual, professional and friendly.  Our home is on a hillside with its own set of unique challenges.  We encountered rock while digging and plenty of rain during installation.   These weren’t problems for Jeff – it was just another day at the office.  We would hire Jeff again in a second.

– David A. C.

“Dear Jeff and the entire Pools By Design Team,

We are thrilled with our newly renovated pool and patio! We absolutely love our outdoor space. You have turned our backyard into a resort-like setting! We highly recommend your company for anyone’s pool renovation or new pool construction. The process was seamless from beginning to end. You kept us informed throughout the entire project. Your employees and your sub-contractors were very professional, friendly, and went above and beyond to execute our project plan. Thank you for the amazing job you did.

– The Moran’s

“The entire project from design trough installation far exceeded our expectations. Jeff, the owner, was in constant communication during the entire project and helped turn our dream pool into reality. It was clear from the first planning meeting that Jeff and his entire staff take pride in their work. Where other companies simply filled out a form and presented a quote, Jeff took the time to listen to our concepts and walk the backyard to really understand what we wanted. He guided us through each step and made sure that there were no surprises or hidden fees. At the end of the day, the finished product turned our yard into a resort. I highly recommend Pools by Design NJ.”

“Dear Jeff,

I am writing to let you know how absolutely thrilled we are with our new pool. We have worked with many contractors in the past, but none have come close to the professionalism and quality workmanship your company provided.  Your company and sub-contractors all went above and beyond; I wish I could name and personally thank each person who had an impact because they were all fantastic and very skilled at their jobs.

Every neighbor, family member and friend who has seen it comments on how absolutely beautiful it is and how they feel like they are at a resort in our backyard.  We gladly share your name and the wonderful experience we had and will continue to do so.  Please feel free to us as a referral if you wish.  Thanks for helping us transform our backyard into something we will enjoy for years to come.”

Best wishes,

Joe and Robyn Rantuccio

Wow what a great pool!

Thanks for the wonderful job you did for us. Everything went so smooth and the pool was finished right on time. Very professional and courteous team of people. We could not have asked for a better experience than dealing with Pools By Design. You have given us a pool for my family to enjoy for many years to come. We would definitely recommend this company to friends.”

“Pools By Design designed and constructed our in-ground swimming pool and did a wonderful job from start to finish. Jeff showed professionalism from the very first time we met him and throughout the construction process. He is a pleasure to work with, always on site and available to answer all of my questions.  His regular email updates kept me confidently informed about the next steps of our pool.  Jeff goes above and beyond; we had an unexpected snowstorm during the early phase of our dig and Jeff showed up on Saturday morning to personally shovel snow from our pool site.  Our pool exceeded our expectations and the followup and communication has been fantasticHighly recommended!

“If you are looking to have a pool put in by a company that “gets it”, then look no further. Pools by Design is reliable, highly competent, does wonderful work, and communicates flawlessly. They dot every i and cross every t. Jeff Tierno, the owner, is a pleasure to work with and delivers a high quality product on time and at budget. My wife and I really have no complaints. When was the last time you hired someone and felt like that??? If you have surveyed the pool companies out there, you know most leave you feeling something is lacking. Have Jeff come present his vision in person. If you are serious about a pool, let Jeff take over. You will be happy you did. ”

— Dan and Kate Bavuso, Rumson, NJ

“Jeanie and I would like to thank you for a beautiful pool, waterfall, and landscape project. Pools by Design transformed our backyard into our own private resort. When we first met, you explained the process from design to completion and your team executed the plan. You constantly monitored the project and made sure Jeanie and I were made aware of all options as the project progressed. The timing of the project could not have been better, we contracted Pools by Design in September to plan, build, and complete the project prior to the following swim season. Jeff and his team made this happen!

We had a full season with the new pool and patio and everyone we entertained could not believe how our back yard looked like a resort.

Thanks Again Jeff for all your hard work.”
