Texas is the largest state in the lower 48. It is also home to our South Central manufacturing facility located in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. This strategic location allows us to serve not only the Texas market but much of the territory west of the Mississippi. Texas enjoys a climate that allows many of it’s residents to use their swimming pools nearly nine months of the year. The warm climate also allows pool builders and applicators the opportunity for a 12 month building season. We’d like to introduce you to a few of our Austin area customers who enjoy the extended building season; H&H Tile and Plaster, Seasha Pools, and newcomers Stag Pools.
H&H Tile and Plaster is located in Dripping Springs, Texas about 25 mile outside of Austin. H&H has plastered over 10,000 swimming pools in Texas, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Oklahoma. They specialize in pool finish out for new construction but also handle complete pool renovations. Their services include pool tile, plastering, water features, natural stone waterfalls, decking, flatwork and weeping walls. H&H is an Authorized Applicator for all CL Industries products.
Originally formed in Dallas, the company partnered with Billy Johns and opened the Austin location in 2004. The business has really taken off under Billy’s leadership as he has put a strong emphasis quality craftsmanship and clear communication with H&H’s customers. H&H primarily uses our CrystalStones, SunStone, and Hydrazzo products on both new construction and renovations. Customer service is their number one priority and having the experience and knowledge of an authorized applicator greatly reduces the issues some applicators experience with homeowners following startup of exposed aggregate finishes.

Seasha Pools recently celebrated their 30th anniversary. Formed in 1986 by Bobby Stevens, Seasha Pools designs and builds customs swimming pools and spas throughout the Texas Hill Country and Austin area. Every swimming pool Seasha builds is designed to be in harmony with the homeowner’s landscape. Often the natural surroundings of the Texas Hill Country are incorporated into the designs.
Bobby earned an art degree from Southern Methodist University where was a member of the swim and dive team. Following a brief stint as a dive coach for the Dallas school district he began working for a custom home builder. His background in art and swimming coupled with his construction experience led Bobby to start building swimming pools. Bobby’s main focus is on residential pool construction, but his company has worked with commercial developers to build apartment pools, Olympic size pools, and even the Dino Pit at the Austin Nature Center. Seasha Pools prides itself on bringing their client’s idea of a “dream pool” to life. They have never built the same pool twice. Having the myriad of finishes that CL Industries manufactures has been a huge help in creating a unique swimming pool for every customer. SunStone is a popular choice among his customers. Specifically, Midnight Blue has become a favorite to create a deep blue water color to contrast the natural stone decks and coping that often accompany a Seasha Pools’ design.

Stag Pools is a family owned and operated swimming pool company specializing in building luxury pools, spas, and backyard living spaces. Prior to opening Stag Pools, Owner John Staigerwald worked for several years as a managing supervisor of the swimming pool division for a luxury custom home builder in the Austin area. During this time John oversaw the construction of hundreds of luxury swimming pools. For those of you that don’t know, Texans spend a lot of time entertaining outdoors and the backyards are usually extensions of the homes, with the swimming pool as the centerpiece. Don’t forget the summer kitchen for homemade Texas BBQ.
John’s experience with the custom home builder has helped him carve out a niche for Stag Pools. Understanding the new construction market has helped his business tremendously. John is big fan of Hydrazzo Classico, and it suits Stag’s propensity for building luxury pools perfectly. His customers love the myriad of color options and the smooth feel of the polished marble finish.
