The Horvath’s – Lexington MA Pool

“Don’t take our word for it,

ask a Lexington MA pool owner themselves!”

Project Location: Lexington, Massachusetts

Project Year: 2019

1. What influenced you to have a pool built?

We wanted a backyard that we could use to enjoy with our family and friends. Our kids have always enjoyed swimming and we wanted a pool as a centerpiece to our backyard.

2. What activities does your pool allow you to do?

We find ourselves spending significant time in the pool whether it is for swim lessons with our kids, games of basketball, or lazy afternoons relaxing on floats.

3. Why did you choose SSG?

We were impressed with the build quality and diversity of builds that SSG does. For a company that does significant commercial pools down to small backyard pools, we were sure they could handle our build. We were also impressed that SSG uses all their own employees for the work and does not subcontract out for significant portions of the work.

4. How was the design process?

The design process was fantastic. Our design consultant met with us, learned what we wanted to have in a pool, educated us on many features and steered us towards an accomplishable plan. He then put together incredible renderings that brought the plans to life and helped us plan for the location of the pool in the yard and how it would interface with our existing deck.

5. What was your experience with the employees while building the pool?

From the most experienced site manager to the skilled laborers we were continually impressed with the work ethic and expertise of the employees of SSG. We were probably a little more involved than many owners and each and every employee was happy to take the time to explain each step to us.

6. What was your experience with our supervisors and coordinators? 

The supervisors and coordinators at SSG were fantastic. They were so helpful and willing to go above and beyond for us. They we able to help coordinate the foundation for our pool house, footing for a pavilion and integrate the patio surround seamlessly with our existing deck.

7. What advice would you give to someone considering a pool for their home?

Don’t scrimp on your pool build. A pool is a huge investment and you want to be able to use it as often as possible. Having and autocover, automated maintenance and cleaning systems, salt and pH balancers allows our pool to be turn key. So whether you are having a backyard pool party for 150 people or just want to take a quick solo dip you won’t be too burdened to do so.

8. Describe SSG using 3 words.

Diligent. Reliable. Trustworthy.

Our Work Brings Great Reviews


“They build a gorgeous pool. The finished product is exactly what I wanted. I came very close to working with another vendor as I did not think I could afford a quality Gunite pool. I quickly made the switch as SSG worked with me to customize a pool within my price range. Best decision I made and best pool ever! I am very happy with my decision”

“These folks did a great job building and finishing our pool. We also needed them to move the equipment after adding an outbuilding, which they did on time and on budget and without complaining! The service people are friendly, punctual, and very professional. Overall, an excellent customer experience.”
