How do you want to spend the summer? Would you rather drive to the beach in bumper-to-bumper traffic or would you prefer to relax in your own, luxurious backyard pool? If the second option sounds good, a call to Staten Island’s Next Level Pools can start you on your way to resort-style living at home.
At Next Level Pools, owner Armando Zeas gives every pool project his personal attention. According to Zeas, understanding how the pool will be used and where it needs to be situated on the lot will help determine the pool’s proper size and design.
“We build, install and service inground and above ground pools of every type,” Zeas said. “I first talk to the owners about how many people are going to use the pool. A small family with two-children often thinks in terms of four people using the pool. However, in the course of conversation, I sometimes learn that the family likes to entertain. Once you factor in guests, the size and design of the pool can change.”
Zeas is a 20-plus year veteran of the swimming pool industry. He started as a laborer and then worked with his brother at a pool company for 14 years. In 2016, he opened Next Level Pools. Today, Zeas builds pools on Staten Island as well as in New Jersey and Brooklyn. He credits the success of his company to a hands-on approach, exemplary service and his ability to earn the trust of his customers.
“When a customer hires us to build and service their pool, they get my personal attention,” Zeas said. “I am at the job as much as possible, sometimes supervising and often doing the actual work of building the pool. Our customers trust us to do the job right. We have excellent crews who know their craft, but it is my personal responsibility to answer the homeowner’s questions and make sure everything is done right.”
Zeas’ dedication has resulted in a loyal following and an impressive amount of referral business. Throughout the process, he helps his customers realize their vision of a beautiful swimming pool, while conforming to municipal codes and budget considerations. He noted that, ‘…once the pool is built…it’s built…” Making changes after the fact is both difficult and expensive, so understanding the customers wants and needs is vital to the outcome of the project.
“We want to make sure that the customer understands how the pool will be built,” he said. “That is another reason why we explore how the pool will be used. Does the customer want a uniform depth across the pool or a diving-end? How old are the children in the family? How will the topography of the lot effect the pool design? ”
In additional to sales and installation, Next Level Pools offers a variety of services for both above and in-ground pools including pool liner replacement, maintenance, construction and customization, pool closing and opening and repairs.
