Review by in Wake Forest, NC
Paul is fantastic to work with and knows his stuff. Could not be any happier with the job he did replacing our pool liner. High quality job! My only regret is that I did not have him install my pool originally. Highly recommend them.

Paul spent a great deal of up front time educating us about the various options during the pre-contract phase which enabled us to make informed decisions throughout the project. He was also very good at alerting us to the upcoming decisions we would have to make. He set and managed our expectations. He was accessible at all times and on-site during all phases of the work. Paul managed the construction from the perspective of having an ongoing relationship after the work was completed. Specifically, he built in some safe guards to address issues that may well arise in the future.

Review by in Louisburg, NC
Project: Build or Install a Vinyl Lined Swimming Pool
I liked dealing with one person (Paul) throughout the entire project. Paul's number 1 concern was doing everything right and insuring my satisfaction in all phases of the inground pool installation. He made himself available when I had questions and never hesitated to travel 30 miles or more to review a process of the install. Based on opinions of others that had pools installed by other contractors I would conclude that Backyard Retreat is unquestionably the best option for installing pools. You will get a contractor dedicated to your satisfaction and at the best value. We interviewed three contractors and visited pools constructed by all.

Project: Build or Install a Vinyl Lined Swimming Pool
I was quite concerned about the purchase and installation of my pool because I prefer to go into projects of this scope armed with information so that I can make informed decisions. Backyard Retreat, Inc. did an excellent job of informing me on the products and procedures. Mr. Tyler is the consummate professional. He took the time to explain my options along with their pros and cons. Every other contractor came in with a salesman who brought in a bunch of material and the sales pitch. If you are considering a pool, Backyard Retreat Inc. is clearly the best source. I have a great pool and the confidence that it was installed professionally.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
