Save yourselves the trouble and avoid this company at all cost! We hired these people to open our pool last year since previous owner recommended them. The first time they came out to open our pool, they were on time. They realized that the old filter finally died and recommended we install a new one. We went with their recommendation. It was pricy but we relied on their expertise. To be honest they did a very sloppy job. The old filter was left right there by the pool, pool cover beside it. We called them again about 3 weeks later to clean the pool. They set up the time twice. First time never showed up, second time showed up at 6pm instead of 10 am as promised. The person answering the phones could not give us any information, she literally said don't know anything, I just answer the phones. Finally, the owner of the company Frank came out to clean the pool. After the allotted hour we could see the pool was still dirty, so we asked Frank to spend a little more time cleaning. He recommended we get our own vacuum and clean the pool, since in his words as pool owners we would need it anyway. Did I mention that these people requested we paid cash??? When we were unable to wait all day for them to show up, Frank suggested we simply leave almost 1000 dollars hidden in our back yard for his crew to pick up upon arrival. Very unprofessional!
Response by The Liner Specialists, Inc.: Mrs. K Thank you for the feedback. We are extremely sorry you were not satisfied with our work. We have been working on your pool for many years and the previous homeowner were happy with our business. We did leave the filter there and do apologize. The owner picked up the filter when he came back to vacuum. We sent the owner of the company out to you for multiple reasons. You had expressed your interest in weekly service and how to attain that. As new homeowners we wanted to make sure you received the best services and advice. The owner came, vacuumed, and gave you advice on how to maintain your pool without a weekly service company which you explained you did not want. We thought giving you some recommendations on what supplies you would need would be helpful. He in no way wanted you to take it the wrong way. He stopped vacuuming at a certain point because the pool was cloudy and he could not see anymore. The reason for the scheduling issues was because of the weather. We had bad thunderstorms when we had canceled in the morning. The office always tries to give you the best time frame for when we will be showing up. It is hard to do many jobs in certain weather so we tried to accommodate you as best we could. Please feel free to contact us for future questions, comments, or concerns.

Frank and his team at Liner Specialists did a great job on my pool renovation. We had a very unique and challenging job that few other pool contractors were willing to tackle. Our pool wall was collapsing due to a big sink hole (stumps/branches) buried below the wall. The project required 1) coordination with another contractor I hired (an excavator), which Frank handled with total professionalism 2) filling the massive void that was created with 3/4 inch stone (100 tons of material) 3) sculpting the deep end of the pool with over 55 bags of fast-set cement 4) rebuilding a 36 foot steel wall and 5) installing the new liner, new piping, etc. It was a BIG job and we could not be happier with the result. It took about 3 weeks elapsed time start to finish and the level of communication during the project was timely and top-notch. I highly recommend Frank. If his team could handle my job, I'm certain they can handle anything thrown at them.

Review by in Poughkeepsie, NY
Outstanding. I had my liner replaced six years ago by another company. It was coming out of the track and in dire need of repairs. I called two other companies and both told me I needed a new liner. I knew that wasn't accurate . Called the Liner Specialists, they got back to me asap. Fixed it within the week. I'm so happy. Thank you so much for your honesty in fixing my pool. I was quite certain I didn't need a new liner.

Review by a homeowner in Irvington, NY
Scam stay away from Frank, he is a faster talker so that he doesn't take any responsibility for what he contacts. Never give him money until he starts work if you lucky to get him to start the job. He takes you money and than good luck in reaching him.
Response by The Liner Specialists, Inc.: this was the letter that was mailed certified to this customer. The Liner Specialists, Inc. 1214 Rt. 52 Suite 200, Carmel, NY Main Office: 845-225-4124 Fax: 845-225-4127 Email: May 16, 2017 We are writing this letter to confirm that you wish to break the contract that was signed with The Liner Specialists on September 19, 2016. We had given you a price which was an extremely competitive price. After signing of the contract, we ordered custom materials. The permits did not become available to start any of this work until April 19,2017. We filled out all work on our part and Mary Ann from the office made numerous phone calls to Camille at the town to see what can be done to move this along and she kept saying that the engineer, architect as well as yourself needed more paperwork to move on. The construction management of this project was being managed by Mr. and Mrs. Buglione (the acting General Contractor). It was understood by The Liner Specialists as subcontractor that the engineer, architect, and town were handling all their aspects of this project. Our responsibility to this contracted job was to start work as soon as we were given the go ahead by the GC. We had the custom ordered materials in stock for over six months, and we delivered a portion of it. Cancelling this contract at this point is something we are not legally obligated to do. However, in good faith we will be willing to grant you an offer and compromise for cancelling this contract. In early May, via phone conversation, we mutually to rectify this. At this point The Liner Specialists can only accept $4128.00 for cancellation however, for an additional $900.00 equaling $5000.00 we will give you all product ordered which will settle this matter in it?s entirety. Thank you. Frank Christiana - President NESPA APSP CBP-Level 1 CST, SP1 & DEC Erosion & Sediment Certified
