From: Giuseppe Abbrancati
Gappsi Inc. has been providing home improvement services for residents of Long Island from both Nassau and Suffolk County, Queens, New York City, The Five Boroughs, Whitestone, Staten Island, Bronx, etc… The company is divided into 8 separate divisions, there is: Design Team Division, Landscape Division, Masonry Division, Swimming Pool Division, carpentry home remodling, Natural Stone Importing Division, Retail Swimming Pool Store Division and Retail Natural Stone & Tile Store Division.
Gappsi divisions work together to design and install outdoor living spaces, this ensures customer satisfaction because of our coordination. We design and construct the entire project NO subcontractors are ever used for our installations. The Gappsi dream team is formed of designers, estimators, field supervisors, masons, pool builders, landscapers, office personnel, pool supply division and natural stone showroom. All personnel are highly knowledgeable, qualified and trained to help educate our customers.
Gappsi has been recognized many times for our award winning installations by the Masonry Association, ICPI, Portland Cement Association and Concrete Products for designing and building the best pools capes, landscapes and hard capes for residential and commercial applications. Gappsi builds spectacular pools, award winning landscapes and masonry. Our company has been operating on Long Island for 22 years since 1987, with our location in Commack for 17 years and now in Smithtown for 5 years in our state of the Art 10,000 square foot showroom. Our showroom is where all our customers either past or present come to get educated on all their outdoor home improvement needs.
We are design experts and our knowledge for building swimming pools, landscapes, patios, driveways, steps, porches, retaining walls, cultured stone veneer and natural stone veneer goes back generations to the old country, a family of Italian craftsman’s and European descendents that brought knowledge and skill to USA, New York, Long Island.
We design all our work in 3-D format using Structure Studios so Gappsi costumers can appreciate and very easily visualize their dreams with no pressuring salesman. Gappsi costumers come in and admire their projects in the comfort of our design studio and ask as many questions as they like. Our teams of designers are experts in all phases of home improvement. After the design is finalized we move to the next step which is the selection of paving stone material, retaining wall and stone veneer for the masonry part of the project. Our team of knowledgeable experts will not only help to answer questions on all our material displayed but also suggest color contrasts and pattern combinations for inlays and accent and to ensure you get the best materials for durability and performance.
POOLS
Next the swimming pool options are discussed, our pool division is headed by Kevin Anderson who has been engineering pools for more than 2 decades. Gappsi swimming pool experts will speck all Gappsi pools to be maintenance free so our costumers can enjoy their Gappsi installed backyard paradise with no worries. Different sizes of pumps and heaters are available, we are a Jandy, Hayward and Pentair warranty center. We use cartridge and earth filtration systems installation is done with PVC piping and flex pipe for all our pool plumbing, for more information you may visit the manufactures website at www.jandy.com, www.hayward.com, www.pentairpool.com. All pool skimmers are top quality and we use wide mouth and narrow mouth skimmers, we install 2 bottom drains for safety as well as a SRV valve by pool pump. This is a suction release valve so in case both bottom drains are clogged the SRV valve will allow air to fill the pipes, thus cutting the suction force and avoiding any accidents. At Gappsi we are very concerned about safety of our costumers and we always put safety first. We always install 2 inch wide aluminum extrusions on the top edge of the concrete wall and steel wall where the pool liner gets attached and secured. We install concrete base steps then we install ¼ inch foam and then the liner gets installed over that to create comfortable and sturdy steps. Our concrete pool steps are built together will the concrete pool walls as one solid concrete structure molded together for a long lasting pool structure. We also offer fiberglass steps that we encase in our concrete walls, where concrete and steps are installed together extra support for steps is added during the pool patio installation to further reinforce the fiberglass steps. We install ¼ inch foam in front of the concrete wall all the way around the swimming pool, the pool floor is always a hard bottom which consists of vermiculite on a dry pack mix of cement of sand. This process keeps the pool bottom foot print free forever and will give your swimming pool a clean crisp looking floor and soft, comfortable walls, pool steps and benches. Our pool bench is molded as part of the wall, the Gappsi pool bench has a very smooth transition and it flows with the pool walls giving the pool shape a very natural, appealing comfortable look. Gappsi pool liners are installed by our specialized technicians who are very skilled and qualified to measure the pool liner to ensure a very tight and clean fit on the swimming pool walls and steps.
Pool liners that Gappsi installs are, Merlin, Vyn-All and Loop-Loc, for more information please visit their websites www.merlinindustries.com Corporate Headquarters/New Jersey Plant 2904 East State Street Ext.

COPING AND NATURAL STONE PATIOS
We install many different types and styles of swimming pool copings. Some types of coping that we install are: paving stone full nose coping, 2 inch thick flamed granite in 6 inch or 12 inch depths at 12 inches or 24 inches long. Flamed Granite is a textured finish that is achieved by exposing the surface of the granite to a flame, which is generated by a gas element torch. Through this process the top surface of the granite becomes flaked thus making the finish of the swimming pool granite coping skid resistant, comfortable and most importantly safe. We also have honed travertine and pavers for our customers that we custom full nose in our shop. We have multiple sizes for a random looking coping that we can manufacture in many widths, lengths and thicknesses. We can custom cut the swimming pool coping using any of the colors of the Travertine from our extensive collection. We also offer sandstone pool coping and sandstone pavers with many finishes from saw cut, honed, sand blasted, natural finish and polished. We carry beautiful sandstones like the very famous rainbow stone to Gary and brown sand stones. We have customized many pool copings as well as pool patios.
Our display is home to the largest selection of the most beautiful Limestone pavers on Long Island. Gappsi limestone pavers are finished with the highest quality process. We offer Limestone pavers with the following finishes: saw cut edges, natural cut edges and tumbled edges. The finishes for the top surface of the Limestone pavers and swimming pool coping are flamed, natural, sand blasted, tumbled and antiqued. We offer a large selection of colors from multicolored browns, grays, yellows and blacks. We can custom cut these pavers for pool copings. Limestone pavers, Travertine pavers, granite pavers, sandstone pavers and marble pavers are all ideal for pool patios, they are 100% lime which means they do not absorb the heat and stay cool under very hot temperatures. All these products are natural stones so they will look new forever, they have existed in this form since the creation of earth. Natural stones have been used around the world for centuries, ancient generations thousands of years ago built structures that have withstood the test of time. These structures are living proof of the quality of natural stones matched only by the quality of Gappsi installers, craftsmanship and our Gappsi team’s installation skills.
