by Pool Builders on 07-26-2011 in Articles

In-ground pools are wonderful additions to backyards for both exercise and summer fun alike. However, just as with most home additions, a swimming pool will require a professional to complete the installation. When choosing an installer, it's important to consider both the style of the pool you have in mind as well as the quality of work that will be provided. In this article, we will walk you through the process involved in hiring your swimming pool install service.

Step 1 €" Figure out where you would like to put your new pool. Make sure to take into account the location of the utilities and systems that could potentially be in the way. These include, but are not limited to a septic system, sewer line, water pips, a well, gas or electric lines.

Step 2 €" Get in touch with a variety of different installation professionals. If you have local friends or family members who have recently engaged in a similar project, contact them for recommendations. This will allow you to find out information in regard to pricing, the quality of work and the type of services provided. Word of mouth is a wonderful way to find a variety of services and this instance is far from exception.

Step 3 €" Determine what type of pool you are interested in. Speak with different contractors to help you figure out what will work best with your current yard setup.

Step 4 €" Make certain that the professionals you are considering have enough experience to complete the job the way you want it. For example, if you are interested in a natural-style pool that includes a waterfall, avoid hiring a contractor who deals mainly with concrete systems.

Step 5 €" When speaking with the various contractors, be sure to ask for references. Once you have a list of past clients, be sure to contact them. Ask questions such as, €Were you happy with the quality of work?, Were the deadlines met?, How are the results?€

Step 6 €" Obtain a quote from each contractor for the completed project. This price should include all aspects of the job, including any necessary equipment, tree removal and cleanup costs.

Step 7 €" Be sure to ask and verify whether the contractor is fully licensed and insured. This will help ensure that you receive quality work and are not liable for any injuries that take place on your property.

Step 8 €" Your contractor should offer a satisfaction guarantee with the work. If your contractor can not guarantee the work being provided, then they are not worth your time.

Step 9 €" Once you've gathered all of your information, it's decision time! Choose your contractor based on a combination of experience, price and your impressions overall. Avoid making a decision based solely on price, as you will likely get what you pay for.

Step 10 - Write out a contract that states clearly all aspects of the job. This will include the type, size and the specifications of the finished product.
