Why Choose Unique
With Years of Experience and a Passion for Exceptional Service, Choose Our Team!
For more than a decade, Unique has been at the forefront of designing and constructing swimming pools. Our journey began as subcontractors, where we worked on various aspects of pool building, such as water features, decking, and masonry. We realized early on that pool builders depended entirely on subcontractors to get the job done as they lacked the necessary staff and crews to carry out the tasks required to construct a pool. It was an eye-opener for us, and we observed how projects would take months to complete, with the pool builders often missing in action for weeks on end. We also noted how little consideration the pool builder had for the entire project, leaving the homeowner to find another contact to build other outdoor structures such as pergolas.
With our keen observation of customer frustration, we decided to take matters into our own hands and began building our pools, outdoor structures, and landscapes in 2005. Unique emerged as one of the pioneers in landscape and pool contracting in Phoenix, setting the standard for full-service outdoor construction. Today, with hundreds of successful pool constructions and satisfied clients, we have become masters at integrating swimming pools with landscapes and complete outdoor living environments.
Unlike larger pool companies, Unique does not approach pool construction as a “production” builder, where customization is limited and the entire project’s integration is neglected. Instead, we pride ourselves on integrating pools, patios, and landscapes into a single unique outdoor living environment. “We don’t just build pools,” says Chris Griffin, owner of Unique Companies, “we design, plan, and manage outdoor projects that result in some incredible backyards.” Our company strives to build quality outdoor environments that meet our clients’ specific needs. This approach enables our clients to see the big picture and work on the project’s phases without fear of redoing something that was not correctly planned. Every stage of our project is carefully designed, thought out, and assembled to create a remarkable end product.
Since 2005, Unique has ranked in the top 10 landscape and pool companies in Arizona, according to Ranking Arizona – AZ Business Magazine. In 2010 and 2014, we secured the #1 ranking in the Landscape Design/Build Category, and the #3 ranking for Pool & Spa Builder. Our website, a nationally accredited platform, has consistently ranked among the top search engine results for landscaping and pool ideas on Google and Bing.
