Altitude Pools and Spa is the most professional, dependable true “team player” pool contractor I have worked with in my 35-year career in Multifamily New Construction. Mr. Jim Tyler in particular is knowledgable, professional and knows the local jurisdictional “systems” to make your pool building experience as smooth and painless as possible. Any pool or spa needs I have in the Colorado Springs area will be done by Altitude Pool and Spa!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jim and team at Altitude Pool and Spa on two large multifamily projects in Colorado Springs. Since the start of our relationship, Jim and crew have always been responsive, proactive in communication, and consistent in their ability to meet schedule deadlines and at the cost they promise. They are hands down an excellent trade partner and will always be our first call for pool projects!
