Finding The Right Pool Builder

by Pool Builders on 11-18-2006 in Articles

It is a super hot day in the south. All you can dream of is (If I had a swimming pool in my backyard I would love to jump in and relax).

OK so you have finally decided to add that luxury swimming pool in your backyard. Do a little homework on your own. Read up about the different kind of pools that are available. Research the equipment that is available. Ask the pool designer to explain the difference between some of the choices of pumps. The difference in the pool layouts, and why should I choose your company over your competition.

How do we find a pool company in our area?

1. Local Yellow Pages

2. World Wide Web

3. Ask our friends

4. Chambers of Commerce

Make a list of about 6 to 10 pool builders; Call the companies to ask if they would be interested in bidding on the construction of your new swimming pool? Have a list of questions wrote down so you can interview them. You want to know if you can work with this pool company. Now is the time to find out. Not in the middle of the pool construction. First follow that gut feeling if you have a check in your gut. Try to find out what it is.

Please do yourself a favor. Do not make your decision strictly on the low price. If you do find out why they are the low bidder. Make sure you are comparing apples to apples. Cheap is usually cheap for some reason.

During the interview process

1. Ask to see picture of pool designs and also pools they have built.

2. Ask them for references of newly built pools

3. Ask them for references of pools that have been built for 5 - 10 years.

4. And call the referral and ask if you can stop by to inspect the pool.

5. Does pool builder stand by his warranty

6. Does pool builder have maintenance department to help with pool

Before you make your final decision

1. Check the Better Business Bureau

2. Consumer Organizations

3. Make sure the contractor is insured and licensed

4. Make sure they build to local and state codes

Be sure to read the Contract before you sign it.

Best of Luck finding you pool builder.
