swimming pool refurbish

Fabio did refurbishment of my swimming pool last year. They changed the tiles around the pool and on the top part of the pool wall. Before the refurbishment, I shopped around a bit and discussed with several potential vendors from HomeStars. Fabio approached me very responsively and actively. He explained in detail about the job needed to do and the materials he would choose. He also provided 3-year warranty on the job and the materials. I was assured and employed him and his team to do the job.
After the work finished, he asked me to write a review on HomeStars. I decided to do so one year later.
Unluckily, the tiles around the pool broke massively this year. When we found this in May, I wrote an email with the warranty letter attached to him. But no response. And we tried to call him with the phone number on the warranty letter and the number on this website, it never connected. I also left a message to him on HomeStars website. No reply either. I was clueless. I guessed Fabio might be not in the business any more. But I saw a new review appeared recently on the website. Leaving such a bad review is the last thing I want to do. I hope he will response and keep his word according to the warranty letter.

New Pool Build

Fab and his crew did an amazing job on our pool. He is extremely passionate about his work and does not cut any corners. In fact, he goes above and beyond to ensure you get a high quality build. He uses the best materials available and deals with the most reputable suppliers in the business (a special shout-out goes to Brenda and the team at Fox Pools, too!).
Fab treated our pool build as if it were his own. He took a lot of care and educated us along the way. Our pool was NOT built in a hurry (and the rest of our backyard is still in a bit of a mess), but as it comes together, we could not be happier about our decision to have Fab at the helm. He is honest and hardworking, and we are very happy to recommend him. We are looking forward to making many happy memories with our family and friends. Thank you, Fab!

Pool instalment

I am beyond amazed with the level of passion the hummingbird employees work with. Fab and his guys got my pool done quick, clean and beautiful it completely blew me away and exceeded every expectation I had. Fab is a very patient man who is constantly explaining what he’s doing while teaching you a thing or two about your pool I would recommend hummingbird to anyone who needs something done!

Re-Tiling and Painting of Pool

Very happy with Fabio and the work he and his Hummingbird crew did on our pool. They respected the property, worked diligently and on time. It ended up a bigger job than we thought but Fabio made some good suggestions on additional work that was really required. The final product looks good.

Pool restoration

I truly wish I could give Fabio (aka Franko) a better review but I find I unfortunately cannot. We got many quotes and chose Fabio because he was so knowledgeable and extremely patient with us as he visited our home several times before we made our decision so that he could answer all of our questions and ease our concerns. He wasn't the cheapest but he wasnt the most expensive but we selected him because we felt we could trust him the most of all the guys we had met. He truly did an amazing job with restoring our pool. He refinished the lining of the concrete pool and replaced all the tile surround as well as reinstalled our coping and then painted the pool with an epoxy finish. The pool truly is gorgeous. Unfortunately, after 3 weeks the epoxy started chipping at the very bottom of the deep end where he has installed a significant amount of concrete to seal up the main drain (in our opinion and from our research we believe that the thick concrete had not fully cured and dried before it was painted causing the epoxy to seperate and lift. He came to see the problem and tried to tell us that something heavy must have dropped into the pool to cause the chip - the pool is 12 feel deep so something approximately 500 pounds would have had to fall in to cause that damage which would therefore be impossible to lift out of the pool. Anyways, as it was pool closing time he promised he would come back in the spring to repaint the patch which we were ok with. What we were disappointed with is that he said the warranty would not cover the cost to refill the pool (approximately $1000 in new water). So the reason for the pool rating is that despite all of my phone calls, emails and texts he has failed to return nor to even respond back to us. In my opinion warranty and the security of knowing that a company is going to stand behind their work is just as important as the quality of work that they perform, and regrettably and much to my heartache, Fabio doesn't stand behind his work. Once he has your money it seems that he is gone for good. Fabio, if you are reading this and are willing to come back to fix the pool and replace the water, I will gladly change this review to a full 10 with no bad feelings.

Hi Christina
As per my conversation with your husband i advised him not to balance the water chemistry himself but to call a professional. The result was damage to the surface area of your pool.In the future please call a professional to service your pool not google.
