When a Richmond area resident wanted to replace his sandstone pool coping with travertine, he checked out the credentials of nearby local pool company Bratton Pools. “Their office was near our home,” says the homeowner, “so I looked them up on the BBB and Yelp. They checked out great and I called them up to come out to my house.”
Mike Bratton co-owns Bratton pools with his wife Kryshon. Mike says, “We went out to our potential client’s house and took pictures and measurements of their pool. We brought out travertine samples so they could pick exactly what we would be installing. And once the material was picked, we were able to put together an estimate.”
“I couldn’t believe the estimate!” says the homeowner. “A friend had a very similar situation and paid nearly twice what Bratton Pools quoted me. We signed on to do the work and I couldn’t be happier. We only had one glitch…the weather. But Mike and his crews prevailed in spite of all the rain. I know good work when I see it, and their work is excellent. The pool business certainly has its share of rip-off companies, but you can just tell Bratton is a top quality company that stands by their work. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone…I wish they had been in business when I put in our pool!”
A family owned and operated business, as this homeowner discovered Bratton Pools maintains an A+ rating with the BBB. Services include construction, renovation, repairs and pool maintenance, as well as full outdoor space planning and construction…including outdoor kitchens, living areas, entertainment areas, fire pits and patio extensions. The staff are Certified Pool Operators and Certified Maintenance Operators and Mike and Kryshon are very hands-on…supervising the process every step of the way.
But what makes Bratton Pools really stand above the rest is their attention to exactly what their customers want. Kryshon says, “When we build or renovate your pool…it’s all about making it yours. We go out to your home, take a look at your space, and get a feel for what you are wanting. What I love is that through the designs, we really see the personality of our clients come out! For this homeowner, the perfect coping was travertine…what will it be for you? Give us a call and let’s see!”
