Roger Soares II has a background that stems from over 30 years of construction experience of custom homes with a strong base in commercial/industrial construction and plumbing. Moving to Arizona in 1995, Roger and his wife Sheri started a swimming pool service company. After working on many poorly constructed pools, Roger saw a need and decided to get back into construction in 1998 when he got his contractor's license to build swimming pools and started Hydroscapes, LLC a design/build firm for new construction and renovations.
Looking for further education in his new endeavor and not wanting to repeat the same mistakes others were making, he was very disappointed in what the pool industry was offering. He saw an ad for a Construction School in San Diego sponsored by Genesis 3. After speaking to two of the partners, decided to give it a go and was never sorry he did.
The education he's received and association with Genesis 3 and the entire Genesis Family has been an invaluable asset to the success of Hydroscapes.
It has helped to develop his philosophy that a watershape should complement the home's architecture, blending in with the natural environment and the need to not only meet industry standards of construction but to exceed them to create a unique work of art. In 2007 Roger qualified for SWD Master with Genesis 3 and in 2006 he completed his education and became one of only a few members of the Society of Watershape Designers, and currently serves on the Genesis 3 advisory committee.
Roger is known in the Valley of the Sun for his intricate and complex design solutions for challenging hillside terrain. He specializes in one of a kind designs that include unique features such as vanishing edges, perimeter overflows and custom blended glass tile. Hydroscapes designs 20-40 projects and builds 5-15 projects a year, which enables Roger to give the client and the project the needed attention they deserve.
He's received numerous awards for his work and his work can be seen in national magazines.
Roger along with his wife Sheri, enjoy the relationships that are built with their clients that develop throughout the entire process of a project. They enjoy working with both homeowners and architects, embracing their ideas and working together in "creating art from water."
