Excellence Comes With Expertise

When it comes to construction projects in South Florida you need the best team to complete the job. Tales abound of good intentions in the construction industry that went bad. But you don’t hear that about Ocean Pools & Construction.

The reason is that this custom pool construction company does everything in-house – from the excavation phase to completion. They also restore, renovate and remodel pools and backyards as well.

The three partners are all contractors who know what it takes to create luxury swimming pools (and spas).

The trajectory of these three men – Julio Batista, Ethan Dankwardt and Fred Guerra is the tale of fate and determination. All three worked as craftsmen and contractors in the swimming pool industry and all three value perfection over personal gain.

They learned the business from the ground up, so to speak. And what better way to build a business than from experience and hard work?

Ethan is a certified, licensed general contractor and pool contractor and has worked as a tradesperson for over 20 years.

Julio has worked in all phases of the pool construction business as well. “My life was dedicated to each phase of building pools so I could open my own company.”
Julio is a visionary and an accomplished swimming pool designer. When it comes to creating 3-D renderings he transforms clients’ dreams into a reality.

The other member of this team is Fred Guerra. Fred is a State-licensed residential and commercial pool builder with an extensive career creating outstanding pools with water embellishment and luxury elements. He is also a specialist in Wi-Fi Automation, which gives you total control of all pool elements with the touch of your cell phone.

These three experienced and dedicated pool contractors are a powerhouse of knowledge and expertise with an in-house staff to take on any pool project from excavation to completion.

There are no subcontractors at Ocean Pools. There is no waiting time to dig the hole, put in tile and coping, plastering, plumbing, water details and other aspects of building a pool.
“We have the ability to control our jobs extremely well because we have an in-house staff. That’s why our pools are completed so efficiently. We prioritize what needs to be done right away, “said Ethan. “If there’s an issue, we come with all guns blazing and send in our staff where they’re needed. We are not at the mercy of a sub-contractor.”

The results are spectacular.

“From start to finish Ocean Pools was AMAZING!! Julio worked with me to design exactly what I wanted. They were up-front about all cost and timing and completed a gorgeous pool in 3 months — record time! Other companies said it would take 6 to 9 months. Truly made it all a smooth easy process,” said Elizabeth Seidel.

The other important thing about Ocean Pools is that they create pools and spas that are tailored to the consumers desires, needs and wants. Some people are swimmers, others are loungers and some have children’s safety in mind.

But, one thing everyone wants is a reliable experienced contractor to build their pool and decking to guarantee the best outcome.
And they get it.

“As an interior designer I have worked with many contractors. I have never had such an incredible experience as with Ocean Pools. They are extremely skilled and did a magnificent job on the remodel of my pool and decking in less than a month. Their communication and desire to please are extraordinary. I highly recommend them,” said Noreen Michelson.

Their process is part of the miracle of this company.

When client’s want to have a pool (or spa) built, a partner goes to their home to discuss their needs and take measurements. Clients are also invited to their unique showroom in Delray where they can view an extensive display of decking material, pool tile, Pebble Tec finishes and more.

“Often times we build pools for people who live out of town (and are snowbirds). We meet with them, plan everything in May, and then we break ground and handle it remotely. We do zoom calls and send photos to keep them in the loop,” said Fred.

According to Julio clients have a vision for what pool they want. “Each job requires a different design and style. We give them the luxury of getting exactly the pool of their dreams. It’s best when clients can visualize what they want so we can transform that into a 3-D ren-dering of their new pool. We are general contractors and can build them whatever they want.”

Backyard spa and pool areas are more sophisticated and diverse today. Some are exotic, others are serene and ethereal with water fountains, waterfalls, hot tubs and assorted rocks and stones.

There are also pergolas and Champaigne Style Spas. The wow factor plays deep here. Some pools have waterfalls that spill over the sides of the pool as well as marble and travertine decking.

Ocean Pools goal is to make sure you get the custom pool and spa of your dreams. They will be there for you every step of the way, whether you are building a new custom luxury pool or remodeling one. “Our goal is to give you the best experience.”
Their word is their bond.

“Julio is a jewel. He was patient, explained every aspect of building my pool and gave us great recommendations. His crew worked relentlessly and always cleaned up. I was told by other companies it would take 6 months to build and Ocean Pools was done in 8 weeks. I love my pool and highly recommend them,” said Gili Gueter.

If you want a swimming pool that is built to your specifications for your lifestyle and design dreams, call Ocean Pools. They will create the perfect outdoor living space for you. Or stop by their 7,000-square-foot Delray Beach showroom where all the magic happens.

Their trademark is perfection, excellent customer service and superb workmanship. From start to finish clients are thrilled with the process and the results.
