Personally Wrote Letters from Clients

“The entire SSG team was truly a delight to work with and your wealth of knowledge in swimming pool construction is unparalleled. Team SSG met every deadline, every schedule and performed as promised time and time again from pouring our concrete decks in the middle of November during subzero freezing conditions to getting our pool tiled, bond coated, plastered amidst dodging rain and cold in the month of April, was truly a Herculean task.

Each of your employees was clean and neat, respectful and courteous, accommodating and sensitive to making the customer happy and doing the job right. Whether it is cleaning up plaster overspray, caulking the deck or replacing poorly sloping concrete, it was done to perfection.

This was a pool that SSG had been servicing since your predecessor installed it in 1953 and it was last renovated under your stewardship in 1988, some 25 years ago. By this math, we should see you again in 2039 and I look forward to it.”

“We are so pleased with the pool project. Everyone involved was punctual, hard working, skilled, and cordial. And the finished product is better than expected. Perfect!

We previously worked in installed sales at Lowe’s so we have experienced and have come to expect numerous failures and breakdowns in projects. This job has been flawless and you and Gary are to be congratulated for providing first class service and product.

We spent a lot of money to do this. We got what we paid for. That’s all anyone wants. We are very pleased that SSG fixed our broken pool.”

“We just wanted to drop you a note regarding the woodstock Inn project. I know you had just got involved in the latter parts but we just wanted to pass on to all your folks at south Shore Gunite what a top notch company you are.

Right from the beginning of the project South Shore Gunite assisted with coordination and design issues. Once you finalized the design for the project, even though there were some hurdles to overcome, your company took the high road on all the issues, dealt with them head on in a professional manner and finished the job as required with excellent quality.

We have been very impressed with the work or South Shore Gunite over the last year and a half and appreciate all the efforts throughout the course of the project, which we think has come out quite well. Please pass our thanks on to Allen and his crew.

Thanks again.”

“I just wanted to write and let you know that we couldn’t be happier with our pool. The team at South Shore Gunite did a great job from beginning to end. Everyone is impressed with the quality of the pool and the pool deck.

We really appreciate your help in designing the placement of the pool in the yard as well as for your ideas regarding our fencing problem.

I have to particularly compliment the team that did the pool deck – they were AWESOME.

Karen, in scheduling, was always helpful and kept us well informed of the progress and what was going to happen next. Pat, in the service department, was also fantastic.

I never write letters, but I just felt I had to let you know how it all turned out.

Thanks again.”

Trish Stewart

“I just want to thank everyone at SSG for doing a fantastic job. We loved the quality of work and the responsiveness of the service. Please tell Gary and team (and yourself, of course!) that we had a great customer experience. We’d be happy to recommend your craftsmanship.”

“I wanted to write and thank you for the excellent service the Beede Center received during our flooding event on Tuesday, February 21, 2012 when the clamp for the flow sensor on the lap pool return line let go. John McLaughlin and Dave Williams responded immediately-less than 20 minutes. Upon arrival they began to assess and remediate the water flow. We are most grateful to have such responsive and knowledgeable personnel to come to our rescue. Had it not been for their quick actions much more damage could have occurred.

It is a great comfort to know that we can depend on South Shore Gunite. Your entire staff needs to be commended for their great service, their thorough knowledge of pools and their excellent customer service. South Shore Gunite has provided us an enormous sense of security that keeps Karen sleeping at night.

Again, thank you to all of the staff at South Shore Gunite for your commitment to the Beede Center.”

“Dear Mr. Williams,

Following is a testimonial pertaining to our pool and the service provided by your company.

We have been with South Shore Gunite Pool since they built it in 1996.

We live a little distance from there but feel since they put the pool in who better to maintain it.

In the 16 years we have had the pool the service has been excellent.

They call you back the same day. You do not have to wait if you have a problem. That being said in 16 years we have had very few problems.

The men that come out to service are very knowledgeable and very polite. They know what to do and they do it.

We would recommend South Shore Gunite to anyone.”

Pat and Bob Cummings

“South Shore Gunite worked with us from the planning phase right through to the completion of the pool to include finish landscaping. Everyone we dealt with was professional, honest and on the same page as the rest of the crews.

We especially liked the fact that all of the work was done by South Shore. We never had to worry that an uninsured or under-insured subcontractor was coming onto our property. This meant a lot to us because if there were any problems we only had to turn to our foreman for answers. South Shore assigned a foreman to our job, and he worked with us during the entire construction process. He explained everything to us and kept us informed about their schedule.

In closing, our job was done on time, on budget and the way we wanted it. We have been using the pool for over 10 years and can’t wait to open it in the spring and are very sad when fall comes and we have to close it.

Thanks South Shore Gunite, you helped us make our house a home.”

“Well we finished painting out the pool area at 5PM Sunday evening………finished cleaning at 4AM Monday, and opened for business at 5AM, January 10th which is when we had previously promised our members we’d be open.

I want to thank SSG, H-M, & HBC for the work and cooperation displayed during this project. Obviously we encountered some difficulties during the execution of the project, but what made the project a success was the willingness to cooperate & work with each other in a tight area.

We knew when we approached you folks about performing your piece of the work it was in the realm of the possible……..due to your company’s professionalism, you got it done. On behalf of the Hockomock Area YMCA, thank you.”

“South Shore Gunite – the best of the best. Unbelievable quality.

Having all the required trade resources internally including design, layout, excavation, plumbing, steel work, tile, stone, decking etc. allows them to control every aspect of the schedule and quality. My pool was built with no downtime, the best quality and on-budget. As a construction management professional, I have seen a lot of pools built, but none of them compare to the quality of my pool.

You get what you pay for with an SSG pool.”

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.”

"The staff at SSG went above and beyond to make this pool happen for us, in the least stressful manner possible, amidst a Pandemic that shut down manufacturers, suppliers, deliveries. They worked outdoors in masks in 90 plus degree weather. They designed and created a beautiful backyard oasis for us. SSG is an exceptional company. They do high quality, gorgeous work, and they stand behind their name. They are a FIVE star company!"

"Couldn’t be happier with the whole service from start to finish. The quality of the work was exceptionally good and you can tell that they approach their work with professionalism and enthusiasm. They pay attention to detail and don’t cut corners. The price for the work was very reasonable and they were always responsive and pleasant to work with. Very happy I went with SSG and will be using them again for any future projects/renovations/openings and closings."

"We worked with SSG Pools for the installation of our gunite pool and deck. We found them wonderful to work with and the pool turned out spectacular. Stunning! It is a wonderful gathering space for our family and friends now. SSG Pools has a wonderful and skilled staff. Through the whole process we were in good hands and the pool they built was the one we dreamed about. I highly recommend this company and also love the lifetime warranty."

"On time and on budget. I have used South Shore over the last 10+ years on 2 pools I have, one at home the other at my vacation home . They repaired a major problems on one pool that other pool companies had been unable to fixed and they completely rebuilt a second pool starting in April and had the job completed and ready to swim by Memorial day. I also use them for weekly service to make sure things run well. In New England you get 3 months to really enjoy your pool why would trust anyone else."


– Paul D. | Weston & Osterville, MA | Houzz Review

"We just had a beautiful gunite pool and deck completed by South Shore Gunite pools and spa last summer. From the very first meeting at our home they understood what we were looking for and made us feel very comfortable with their ability to deliver a beautiful result. Their attention to detail and their ability to connect us with a wonderful landscape architect guided us through the planning and construction phases. Their work crew was well organized, efficient, pleasant and very respectful of our property. It was an amazing process to watch and an amazing result to enjoy. We would be happy to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality pool company."


– Louis Y. | Orleans, MA | Houzz Review

"SSG was wonderful to work with throughout the pool building process. I anticipated being overwhelmed given that I had never had a pool before, but they helped put my mind at ease with their professionalism and responsiveness to all my needs. Rick (sales) Mark (builder) and Karen (Admin) were outstanding!"


– Michael E. | Pembroke, MA | Houzz Review

"After interviewing 3 pool companies, we chose South Shore Gunite based on their expertise, their willingness to guide us through the process, and their great communication. We chose a filtration system recommended by them that uses an ozonator. Love our pool. Very happy with every step of the way."
