How to Choose Pool Builders

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 165

If you are thinking about having a pool installed in your yard, you will need to hire some pool builders to handle this task. Some states require that these contractors are licensed by the state or at the very least are certified. If your state is one of the ones that does not require licensing or certification, you will need to carefully choose your pool builders.

The first thing you want to know is how long they have been building swimming pools. You should ask how many pools have they actually installed. There are some builders who have been in this industry for many years but know very little about constructing a swimming bath. Also, knowing how long they have been in business is important because you want to make sure they are well established.

Ask the builder if you can have a couple of references. You want to get a couple of new clients as well as older ones so that you can compare the work. You want to be hesitant if they tell you that they don't have any references or that they cannot provide you with that information. Once you have a list of references, you can randomly call two or three people and inquire whether or not they were satisfied with the work that was completed at their home. The most important thing that you want to know is if they would hire that contractor again.

Inquire as to whether or not the builder has any knowledge about all of the safety precautions that they should be taking. Be sure that if you do decide to hire a specific contractor, be sure that they keep you up-to-date on what they are doing. You certainly do not want to find out six months down the road that something wasn't done correctly.

Find out if the contractor holds a membership in a professional association in the field they are in. There are several major ones including the Association of Pool and the Professionals, the Certified Pool Builders, the National Plasterer's Counsel as well as the National Swimming Pool Foundation. Also, you can check with your local Chamber of Commerce as well as the Better Business Bureau.

Inquire with the Better Business Bureau to see what the contractor's rating is. The Better Business Bureau can tell you if there are any outstanding complaints against the contractor. If you notice just one or two complaints and they were taken care of in a timely manner, then this may not be a big deal. But if you see someone with a history of complaints or complaints that are unresolved, then you definitely want to steer clear of this builder.

You will need to talk to a few contractors to get an idea of what the different rates are. You do not want to choose the one that have the lowest rate. This is because the one that offers a cheaper rate may not always do the best job. You want to find the person who will do the best job at a reasonable price.
