I wanted to follow up with you and let you know that we went ahead with Arctic Coast / Laguna Pigment for our pool. We are so very happy with the results and we have gotten a lot of compliments about the color you suggested Laguna Blue. Once our Landscaping is in I will email you some pictures
Erika Steinhauser, San Francisco, CA
We looked at so many pools before deciding on the your newest Finish Radiant Fusion. I couldn’t be happier with the finish. I was concerned that it would still be rough, but it is not at all. Thank you to our great contractor who was very patient and Astrid from Universal White Cement you were amazing. She answered so many questions and helped me make the right decision.
