We chose Hilltop after receiving several quotes and doing lots of research. Hilltop wasn't the cheapest, nor were they the most expensive. We chose them based on having the best design,... construction quality, and experience with complex projects. On construction quality, I highly recommend doing your research prior to selecting a company. Understand what equipment you will be getting, plumbing specs, concrete specs, drainage materials, etc. I found Hilltop to be the best. They also worked with me in the few areas where I really want to future proof and "over engineer". Things like having a 6 inch PVC drainage system versus traditional corrugated pipe. In any case, ours was a complex project. We had to remove an old (very large) inground hottub, remove all existing decking, remove a large deck, and existing drainage. It's was a complete redo of our entire backyard. Without going into excruciating detail, we are very happy with Hilltop. Hilltop is an HONEST company that stands behind their work. With any project, particularly one as large and complex as ours, there are going to be issues. Brain, Shane, Matt and the rest of the team were very reasonable and worked with us. We are very happy with our pool and new backyard. It's a backyard oasis and built like a tank for many years of enjoyment. Look no further. These guys are great.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
My experience with Hilltop was absolutely amazing. Beginning with my quote meeting with Matt, Hilltop showed a level of professionalism that was outstanding. Jessica always answered my many questions... and kept me up to date on what was happening with the scheduling. She let me know what to expect next and how everything worked. Working through the rainiest spring on record, Jessica always kept me updated on the construction schedule. The crews run by Shane were professional and never left any mess behind. The finished product was amazing and surpassed all of my expectations. I would recommend that anyone who is considering a pool speak with Hilltop!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Simply put, we could not be happier with our backyard. They actually exceeded our expectations in the end. After researching many different pool builders and obtaining 5 estimates we are so pleased with our choice in Hilltop. The design Matt created for our backyard was outstanding. They worked with us through all the questions (and many doubts) we had prior, during and after pool construction. Everyone on the Hilltop staff is so knowledgeable, helpful and professional. Matt, Shane, Larry, Kelly and Jessica collaborated with us through the entire process. More importantly, this continues after the completion of the pool build. We read every single one of their kudzu reviews prior to selecting them and had a personal friend in the pool business highly recommend them. Again, they lived up to all expectations we set. We feel very fortunate to have worked with such great company as there are so many pool building horror stories out there without even looking that hard. Thank you very much Hilltop for making our backyard a virtual oasis and a place for great memories with our friends and family for years to come.
Wow...5 estimates and you chose Hilltop...a big THANK YOU! We are very proud of our Hilltop Staff and appreciate your mentioning everyone by name. We also thank Chris from Lazy Day Pools for recommending us to you. We will mention again that we do not do "horror". A big kudos to you for reading all of our reviews! You WILL create many "great memories with friends and family for years to come". We also feel fortunate to have worked with you and sincerely appreciate your business!

If your interested in building a beautiful pool for your home, I would strongly suggest you include this award winning designer and pool builder to your shopping list. First, you'll deal directly with the owner, Brian Miller, then get a great team of highly skilled pool builders that transition your back yard into a dream oasis. From a new pool family with high standards, we recommended Hilltop Pools! Thanks all.
Greetings, Brian A.... Brian M here! Thank you very much for your kind words and for mentioning yours truly by name. We are proud of our "highly skilled pool builders" and are pleased we met your high standards. You will enjoy your "dream oasis" for many, many, years. Thank you for this endorsement and recommendation !

Wow...a big thank you for this very, very kind review and testimonial! Kudos goes to you as the Owner, first for your selection of our company, but secondly, for your patience and assistance during the construction process. As you mentioned, your project had spa demolition, drainage, slopes, concrete stairs from the driveway, wood decking, pool and spa layout, etc. and these made your project one of our most complex in 37 years. Your input was thus solicited, needed, and appreciated. Your research into " plumbing specs, concrete specs, drainage material, etc. " led you to Hilltop Pools. These are items that most homeowners do not consider , and maybe the major reasons why they may have selected another company based on price alone (although we do not lose many pools!). Your "Tank" will give you many years of enjoyment. Honesty is part of our Mission Statement, so when it is mentioned in a review, we are very grateful, because with any challenges and with any issues, honesty MUST prevail! Thank you again for your superb review. Sincerely, The Hilltop Family.

From start to finish the quality and workmanship was impeccable! There were no surprises except for how well the finished product turned out. I would recommend Hilltop to anyone considering a pool or spa installation.
Thank you very much for taking the time to do this great review and testimonial. When "quality and workmanship was impeccable" is mentioned, we always think of one of our sayings that " all pools are not created equal". Also, "no surprises" shows that we honored our contract and Mission Statement. We thank you again and know your Hilltop Pool will provide many , many years of enjoyment!

I have been very happy with my pool built by Hilltop Pools and Spas. It still looks just as beautiful as it did when it was built 5 years ago. When there have been any questions or occasional mechanical issues, Hilltop has been helpful in fixing the issue and always stands behind their work. A great experience overall.
We have responded in several testimonials how much we enjoy hearing from past customers. This authenticates our longevity and our company successes long before on-line social networks and review sites became prominent. We thank you very much for taking the time to do a testimonial on your 5 year old Hilltop Pool. We will also continue to stand behind our work, just as we have done since 1976. So glad you have had a "great experience overall"! Sincerely, The Hilltop Pools Family.

I have heard from past experiences with friends, that alot of pool companies are notorious for not doing what they say they will do, and causing nightmares with pool projects. I was very skeptical in my selection process and my doubt was eased by the manner of my first contact with Matt. He was able to measure and lay out the perimeters of the project and add things that I had not thought of before, and did so in the first visit to my house. I watched the crews as they so skillfully worked on my project, everyone knowing their job, and doing it with such professionalism. At no point during my entire project did I every have doubts as to weather or not the job was being done correctly. Everyone on each crew was quick to anwer any questions I had and to volunteer any suggestions that I had not considered.I am thoroughly please with my pool and the entire project and would absolutely suggest to anyone, that they use this company for any pool or spa venture. You won't be disappointed.Bill GB
Dear Bill...If you review our many past KUDZU testimonials and responses, there are indeed several references to potential clients who made the wrong decision and experienced " nightmares with pool projects". Another issue we are seeing this year is completion times, many going on for 3-6 months or more. While we have reluctantly come to the rescue in many of these situations, it is very painful to watch and see how it devastates a family financially and emotionally on what should be a joyous and exciting experience. But let us leave the negative and thank you profusely for the positive comments you made about Matt Miller and our skilled , professional, and knowledgeable craftsman. We rely on referrals and your endorsement is greatly appreciated and will help us tremendously in the future. Thanks again....Sincerely, The Hilltop Family.

Hilltop Pools and Spas, Inc is an outstanding company. From start to finish the staff was helpful with exceptional customer service. We are beyond excited to have the pool of our dreams and we owe it all to Hilltop. I would highly recommend Hilltop to anyone thinking about installing a pool. The process seems overwhelming but the Hilltop staff makes it very easy and exciting throughout the entire duration of the project. Jessica Callahan has impeccable customer service and communicated with us every step of the way. Thank you Hilltop for everything. Summer has become our new favorite season!
A great testimonial with many superlatives. We are also proud of Jessica Callahan ( all of our testimonials are real, and when specific employees are mentioned, this is further confirmation) and her customer service and communication skills. As you mentioned , summer will forever be your new favorite season, and you will enjoy the pool fun, exercise and fellowship for many, many years! Thank you so much for your kind review!

Overall, Hilltop provides a decent quality product. They have some craftsman on their staff that provide exemplary service and artistry that accentuate the beauty of the Hilltop pool installation.
Your emphasis was on "craftsman", "exemplary service", and "artistry that accentuates the beauty". We sincerely appreciate your mentioning these workmanship descriptors. As we have stated many times before, all pools are not created equal, and you have helped the on-line public recognize this fact with your review. Thank you for choosing Hilltop Pools!

The quality and price combination provided by Hilltop Pools and Spas, Inc., cannot be beat. It was more than we expected and they are very professional.
The "quality and price combination" equals the best value. We are proud to offer this ...and sincerely appreciate your sharing this with the on-line public!
After moving into our new home last April we wanted to get a pool installed. We reviewed many companies and decided to go with Hilltop Pools. We went through several design options for the pool and finally decided on a plan and paid our required deposit to get started. We were advised that there may be a possibility of hitting rock and there could be additional charges of $4000-$5000 to get through the rock. During the excavation process, solid rock was discovered on the first day and they advised that they needed to go with the heavier equipment to get through the rock. On the second day of excavation, the heavier equipment was unable to break up the rock as planned and they advised that the removal of rock was going to cost $10,000 alone. On top of that will be loads of dirt that will be needed to back fill at a cost of over $5000. These costs more than exceeded our budget for a standard pool. Therefore we decided to cancel the contract. We have been trying to get a refund of our deposit over the past 10 months. We feel that we should have been made aware of the worst possible scenario of potential costs that could occur in the purchase of the pool. We were not advised properly. We feel that Hilltop Pools should have assisted with the cleanup/restoration of the backyard back to what it was previous to the excavation. We have spent several months removing rocks and fences and leveling out the land so we can get grass to grow again.
Thank you for deciding “to go with Hilltop Pools” after you “reviewed many companies.” A very prudent decision. Your “full disclosure not included” is false and an insult to our company and employees. Since 1976, we recall having two projects where the customer did not wish to spend the additional money to construct their pool. This was one, and another was in the 1970’s where an entire yard was full of stumps, logs, and a layer of dirt over them.
There are no provisions to cancel a contract, but Hilltop Pools and Spas, Inc. allowed cancellation on June 26, 2013. Had our company not been so gracious and benevolent, this customer would owe Hilltop Pools $11,880 per the “fully disclosed” legal and binding contract terms that the customer agreed to and signed. Additionally, the actual costs we incurred far exceeded the $4,547.37 this customer actually paid us to date. This $4,547.37 included actual dollars spent by Hilltop for permits, silt fence, excavation, etc. If we added expenses not billed, along with the contract overhead provisions, this would have exceeded $7,000. This means the customer should have actually paid $2,500 more. In the interest of good customer relations, we sent "pool denied" a check for their balance.
We are not prone to anger nor are we mean-spirited or vindictive. However, since we have received this negative review in several venues, we must act to defend our reputation. “Pool denied” actually owes money to Hilltop Pools and Spas, Inc. and not the other way around. Perhaps we may decide to pursue this. Again, this review is FALSE and an insult to our Mission Statement, company history and dedicated employees.

From day one through to the completion of our pool project, they have surpassed our expectations. They are a wonderful group of people to work with. We would definitely go with them again if we wanted to build a pool in the future.
Thanks, Rob. We are glad you would choose us again in the future. While we do not wish for you to move , the world record for Hilltop repeat customers is 3 ! We are proud of our staff and agree that they are a "wonderful group of people to work with". Relationships are what it is all about , and we are glad you are now part of the "Hilltop Family".

Thank you Conrad. Your testimonial says it all and confirms that our Mission Statement was accomplished on your project!
My experience with Hilltop was absolutely amazing. Beginning with my quote meeting with Matt, Hilltop showed a level of professionalism that was outstanding. Jessica always answered my many questions and kept me up to date on what was happening with the scheduling. She let me know what to expect next and how everything worked. Working through the rainiest spring on record, Jessica always kept me updated on the construction schedule. The crews run by Shane were professional and never left any mess behind. The finished product was amazing and surpassed all of my expectations. I would recommend that anyone who is considering a pool speak with Hilltop!
Thank you Laura...we appreciate you and Tim very much and appreciate your choosing Hilltop Pools for your project!

Thank you Tim, for a great review and "amazing" testimonial! Matt, Jessica , Shane and our Hilltop Crews appreciate your mentioning them by name for their various talents. And when the finished product is "amazing and surpassed all of my expectation", we are especially pleased, because as we have stated many times before, all pools are not created equal. Thanks again!

Hilltop did a terrific job hearing our needs and developing a layout that met what we were looking for. Then, the actual construction went very smoothly and we couldnt be happier with the final product. Great company, great people. Would definitely recommend to others, and already have to several friends.
Thank you very much for complimenting Matt for "hearing our needs and developing a layout that met what we were looking for". We are also glad the "construction went very smoothly" and for your stating that we have "great people". We appreciate your recommendation to your friends and for selecting our company. Sincerely, The Hilltop Team.
