Waukesha, Wis. – Swimming Pool Services Inc. has won top honors in the 2013 Wisconsin Remodelers Awards competition, taking Gold awards in two categories for highly-detailed projects that required tremendous planning and creativity.
The two Gold awards highlight the fourth consecutive winning year for Swimming Pool Services in the annual WRA contest. This span of success has paralleled repeated awards in the annual Association of Pool and Spa Professionals design competitions, including several Gold awards and a “Best of Show” recognition.
Swimming Pool Services is a longtime member of Milwaukee/NARI, which opens the WRA competition to all its members. Swimming Pool Services firmly adheres to the organization’s high professional and ethical standards.
“These two Gold Wisconsin Remodelers Awards are a direct reflection of our amazing pool and spa professionals, who focus every day on creating unique and enjoyable experiences for our customers,” said David Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of Swimming Pool Services. “These two projects posed a variety of unique challenges. Our talented team not only met, but exceeded the customers’ expectations for what was possible to fulfill their goals and dreams.”
Swimming Pool Services was honored with Gold in the “Residential Exterior Specialty” category for a stunning, highly-detailed project at a Neosho residence. The owners sought to create a “personal resort” with a backyard pool and cabana, using materials and aesthetic elements that blended with their house and landscaping.
The finished project matched support columns in the cabana and two poolside pergolas with those on the house, along with similar materials and colors. Arcing crown jets lend visual and auditory beauty in the pool. The pool’s automations – lighting and water features – can be controlled from the house, outside or via a mobile device. The cabana is an outdoor living room with mounted TV, sound system and retractable screens.
The second Gold WRA honor, for “Landscape Over $60,000,” fulfilled a Delafield family’s desire for a safe, fun relaxation space for family time and entertaining. The Swimming Pool Services team employed multi-textured materials throughout to again match existing landscaping. A decorative stone wall on one side of the pool addressed a significant elevation change. Three water features pour from the wall. A double-sided, masonry fireplace offers a separate entertainment area that can be used year-round. The pool house, on a raised patio above the stone wall, has a wet bar, bathroom and storage area. An automatic pool cover provides safety and energy savings.
