We worked with Bob on the design and implementation of our pool, spa and outdoor dining area that my brother in law calls the “dining cathedral” - it is pretty great. The whole project turned out beautifully - we couldn’t be happier.Read More

Riptide won my business for many reasons. I do incredibly thorough research when undergoing a large project such as we did for our pool. I also found Riptide on Houzz -- and saw the photos of the projects completed, and read reviews and decided to engage with Bob Jones. Bob arrived on site -- and gave me some ideas of what 'could be' for our entire outdoor pool / hardscape. I didn't have the best 'vision' for what he suggested -- so he took me out in the area to show me various suggested ideas. It was super helpful -- and he and his team helped me pick a design and then execute flawlessly. Their work is impeccable -- and really almost no issues since we have the pool completed. Bob and his team also designed a beautiful infinity hot tub (with the functionality of the pool pump / gravity) above ground -- and a fire pit. All of it controlled with my phone via an app! It is so great! JoniRead More

We chose Riptide Construction as our pool contractor after considering 2 other contractor bids for our backyard project. From the very beginning Bob was timely, attentive and shared his creative ideas and vast experience with us. In comparison to the other contractors we immediately felt at ease with Riptide's ability to build our tension edge, infinity pool and surrounding patio areas. Our pool's infinity wall is constructed to be exposed on the lower level terrace space. This required the wall to be tile finished as it would be a main visual part of our landscape. Throughout the project we felt that we were in the best hands and enjoyed working with the entire Riptide crew. We loved that Riptide employees work on the entire project vs. having the project completely subbed out as other pool contractors do. These guys are so talented, true experts in their craft, and pure pleasure to work with. From start to finish we had an excellent experience. When we had some scheduling setbacks due to COVID and the tile availability Riptide was happy to work on our terraced patios. We even got a sunken concrete living room with firepit which really makes our backyard extra special. The project turned out amazing. We absolutely love our new outdoor living spaces created. As soon as the project was finished my husband and I agreed there is no way the other 2 pool contractors could have constructed the quality or vision that Riptide was able to create for us. We didn't just get a pool, we got an amazing water feature that is one of the best looking pools we've ever seen and several multi-level terraced entertaining spaces. Our expectations were exceeded. Definitely an 11 on a 10 scale!Read More

We have selected Riptide to build our swimming pools in two different houses in Sonoma over the past five years. And I feel that they are the best in the business. They are very good at listening to exactly what you want and not trying to sell you a generic pool design. Their team coordinates well with other construction projects that are in progress and, importantly, there have been no late budget surprises. Bob Jones keeps a close eye on progress and the end result is that on both occasions, we have ended up with a pool that we are delighted with. I have no hesitation whatsoever on recommending Riptide.Read More
