B&T Installations was formed in 2012 by Martin Jacobson. Martin started his career 23 years ago in Florida installing pools year round, averaging 400-500 a year with only a two-man crew.
He relocated with his family to the Pittsburgh area in 2012 so that his children could experience the beauty of four seasons. He took a short break from installing pools, assuming there wasn’t much business but eventually got restless and placed a Craigslist ad offering his services. Within one hour, he received seven calls. It turns out that quality installers were few and far between. Many installers in the Pittsburgh market simply didn’t have the expertise and care that Martin prides himself on. Installing pools isn’t simply a hobby for Martin as it frequently is for other installers; it is his livelihood.
His relationship with Valley Pool & Spa, the #1 retailer in the area for swimming pools and spas, started in 2014. He currently employs over five installation crews, excavation and delivery crews and installs over 500 pools and liners in a rather short swimming season.
He services western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland and Ohio.
