Choosing The Right Pool Builders: A Checklist

You’ve always wanted a pool. Now, after years of deliberation and budgeting, you’re finally ready to make the big leap. We know you’re excited. We know that the blistering heat outside is making you a bit crazy and you want your pool now.

No matter how desperate you are to get the ball rolling, you need to remember that a quality pool isn’t just slapped up. There is a process you need to go through to pick the pool builder that will build an aesthetically pleasing pool that fits into your budget without any dishonest charges or pool construction issues.

There are tons of pool builders out there, and they all claim to be the best. How do you tell who is really the best option for your life and your budget?

Luckily, we have a checklist of the top five things to consider when choosing which pool builders are right for you:

  1. Ask the pool builders for a list of references. Contact those people and ask how they feel about their pool and the service that they received. If the builder is unable to provide great references, or if they do not provide any testimonials from happy customers this tends to be a bad sign.
  2. Take your time. This is a big decision and is not something that you should rush into. Instead, comparison shop and get bids from different pool companies. And don’t take the first design you’ve been shown. Work with a contractor that will work with you to find the pool design of your dreams.
  3. Get out there and see their showroom. Make sure that the employees are helpful, knowledgeable and respectful- after all, you will be dealing with these pool builders for an extended period of time and you want to know that they’re doing everything they can to make you happy with the entire process and the finished product.
  4. Don’t sign a contract during your first appointment. When it’s all said and done, the first contractor you meet may be the best. But, as with any investment, don’t sign anything without taking the time you need to explain exactly what you want, and to get the promises you need in writing.
  5. Make sure you have any promises or “deals” in writing. Pool builders may offer the world while they are trying to get your business and then drastically change their tune later in the process. If your pool builders offer you some amenities for free or a discount on the construction process, get them documented clearly, so you avoid any confusion.

Picking out the best pool builders

The lesson that you should really take from this is that you are looking for the best people in addition to the best prices. If you call around and only try to get the best quote, odds are you will not only end up with a disappointing pool, you will also get hit by a bunch of unexpected charges from pool builders that make their living providing poorer services and products.

So, when you are trying to pick out your ideal pool builders, look at their past work, their staff, and don’t be pressured into getting a contract you don’t understand.
