“After extensive research over the course of several years, we chose Doug and company to build our pool. After building our house from the ground up, we felt like there were specific things we were looking for in a builder. Most importantly, we knew that adherence to budget, honesty, and timeliness were going to be critical. I’m happy to say Doug hit the mark on all these points. After extensive rain delays, Doug was still able to keep his schedule and complete our pool before the summer swim season. As issues came up, particularly around specification and product selections, Doug handled these in stride and stood by his contract. This honesty is key in any construction project.

At the end of the day, we ended up with a fantastic product and we paid what we agreed to. You cant ask for much more. We’ve had very little post-construcion issues, but Doug did respond within a day or two on the one item we had to get fixed.

I think Doug’s prices are competitive in the Austin market, trending towards better value then some of the bigger players. His subcontractors used quality materials and the specifications of the pool were competitive to our other bids. Everything built met or exceeded the spec – I never had to question or ask to have something changed.

Also, kudos to Doug’s Pool construction foreman and plumber – Pat is an artist.”

“I began my journey with Doug Kurtz and The Chaparrel Group when he renovated my Medical Clinics. He went on to design and build our dream home in Austin. Since then he has put in an incredible custom pool, and is currently working on a beautiful deck to marry our home with our pool. My wife and I cannot wait..”

“We had a beautiful pool behind our home, but could not enjoy it as much as we wanted to. A friend of ours had recommended Doug over at Chaparrel Construction. Doug designed a beautiful deck to finish off our pool, and a stunning Pergola complete with vines providing shade when we are outside. Thanks Doug!”

“I love my house after having a remodel done by Doug Kurtz of Chaparrel Construction. He has been a pleasure to work with. He is bright, professional, available and prompt. He gave us sound advice for the most economical, yet aesthetic solution for our remodel at a price we could afford. Wonderful 5 star service. It is amazing what can be accomplished with limited space.”

“Chaparrel Construction did an amazing job of making ”Phase 1” of my backyard vision a reality. They truly exceeded my expectations. Doug’s many years of experience are evident in every aspect of the job from the planning phase to the end result. His team of professional contractors were a pleasure to have around the house and the pride they take in their work shows. The addition of the patio cover and outdoor kitchen looks as if it were always there and was built with the house. It will provide many years of memories and enjoyment to my family, not to mention the value it adds to my home. Hats off to Doug, Mike, Ray, Joe and the rest of the team at Chaparrel Construction for a job well done!”
