Backyard pools are in high demand right now. Reputable pool builders have their hands full with a backlog of clients on waiting lists who are hoping to get a pool as soon as possible. While you’re probably beyond excited about getting a pool, the most important thing to remember at the moment is to be patient. If you choose to forgo the expected waiting period and settle on a lesser pool builder who promises an instant job, you may regret it later.
Many homeowners will attest to unsatisfying pool design and construction, and when you go on to ask how they came to such a standpoint, the answer is often the same – the wrong hands built the pool. We recommend you have the foreknowledge of the contractor you plan on using for your pool project.
Imagine getting a bad pool deal because you settled for a shabby builder. You don’t want that to be your situation. The following tips will help you to choose the right pool builder.
Location & Showroom
It’s a red flag if a pool builder claims to be qualified for the job without saying exactly where their company is situated. Ensure there’s some sort of showroom or brick-and-mortar place where you can see previous projects from them, not to mention all the different pool and hot tub care products they sell.
Imagine if the outcome of the pool installation is quite unlike what you had opted for. This can be disappointing. It happens when the pool builder hasn’t much experience on the job. It’s important to consider a pool builder with at least 10 years of experience. Reputable pool builders are able to maintain their trustworthy reputation and will have the reviews and references to back it up.
Sometimes, a contractor avoids letting you talk to previous clients because they may only have bad things to say. References speak for themselves. It’s important for pool builders to provide potential clients with references so they can get a better understanding of how the company works and what to expect.
Some pool builders pose to have qualifications from industry organizations. Reputable organizations such as the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance, Carecraft, and the Better Business Bureau all have public websites where a potential client could learn more about a company. Don’t settle for builders who are not connected to the industry in an effort to always improve their craft. Request to see any copies of licenses or certifications if they state they have them.
