If you are thinking about having a pool installed, it's important to hire the right builder in Fort Worth, like Klapprodt Pools. Pools can cost more than $50,000 and take weeks to build. If you are going to have a it installed, you can't afford to hire the wrong company or receive inferior service. So what can you do to ensure you get the best possible service? Here are a few questions you need to ask a pool company before you decide to hire them.
Questions to Ask Your Pool Company
How long will the process take?
A good company should be able to get the plans and paperwork done within a week or two and have the entire pool installed in around eight weeks. While the time may vary according to your specific design choices, it shouldn't take more than eight weeks for the average pool. And, on the other hand, if a builder claims they can build your pool in only a few weeks you might want to look elsewhere, as they only way to do that is by cutting corners.
Do you provide maintenance?
Pools require a lot of work to keep in good condition. From checking chlorine levels to repairing heaters, taking care of it is anything but simple. You are going to need to hire a service company to take care of your pool. You can find plenty of maintenance companies in any given city. But many companies that install pools also provide maintenance. The benefits of receiving your maintenance through the company that installed your pool are that you will get a better rate on services and the service technicians will have a better knowledge of your specific needs and take care of any issues without problem.
What type of pool designs do you build?
Standard pools come in square or rectangular shapes. While square pools are definitely the most common, they are hardly the only option you have. If you want a freeform or any other extra features, make sure your pool company can provide the designs you want. Many pool companies only create simple or basic shapes and are able to keep costs low because of that. If you want basic, that's the best way to go. But if you want a dramatic and artistic pool, make sure your pool company has the designers and capabilities required to pull of your magnificent vision.
How much will it cost?
This is one of the most important questions you can ask. A pool builder in Fort Worth, like Klapprodt Pools, will usually charge at least $15,000 to $20,000 for the most basic pool (or $75 a square foot). Make sure the pool company you are interested in provides reasonable rates for their services.
