When you decide to take the plunge to get a pool or spa, some of the first things you look for in a pool builder are trustworthiness, experience and reliability. For those reasons, Atkinson Pools and Spas has again been voted the best pool and spa company by the readers of Mount Pleasant Magazine.
Thirty-four years ago, the family-owned business began with just a red supply shed and a pickup truck. Now the most established pool builder in the Lowcountry, second-generation owner Josh Atkinson continues the legacy of quality workmanship and reliability.
“We’re a family company, and we still operate as one. My parents started this company in 1984, and I joined their team in 2005,” Atkinson said. “This has always been our passion.”
The Atkinsons have built relationships over the years with pool owners throughout the area and offer consultations with a designer for pool planning, spa planning and landscape design services.
“We handle the entire pool design and construction process and help our clients create a completely new environment. From pool shape and color to pool deck style, material, customized color and more, we are here to help them choose and turn their dreams into reality,” Atkinson commented.
The company’s decades of experience keep them on the cutting edge in pool and spa design, trends and technology. Their designs have earned accolades on Houzz and also a 2016 International Award of Excellence from The Association of Pool & Spa Professionals for the Marsh House Pool on Kiawah Island. As Charleston’s only member of the Aquatech Society, Atkinson Pools & Spas is committed to continue learning and exceeding pool industry standards.
“We try to hold ourselves to a higher standard, always using innovative design, unparalleled craftsmanship and uncompromising ethics,” he said.
But just as the Atkinson family has cultivated longevity in the Charleston area, they also cultivate relationships with their clients, which Atkinson attributes to being a sought-after company year after year.
Once the pool design and construction is complete, Atkinson educates customers so they learn to operate their pools and also offers routine maintenance.
“We don’t just throw you into the deep end and leave when the pool is complete,” he laughed. “It’s important for our customers to learn how to properly operate and use their pool and understand how it works. We can also take care of pool maintenance so you can do what you should be doing at your pool: relaxing and enjoying it.”
No matter the reason you dream of a pool or a spa – to feel like you live on vacation, to increase the value of your home, to encourage your children to learn and love to swim early, for exercise or simply to encourage togetherness – Atkinson Pools and Spas staff has been trusted time and again for their experience and reliability.
