Questions to Ask When Hiring Pool Builders

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

If you're in the market for pool builders, you can choose the easy method of hiring someone or the hard way. Normally when presented with such a choice, you're going to choose the easy way. But the easy way in this case may not get you the results you want. Putting in a swimming pool is a huge investment. While there's nothing wrong with finding a good deal, don't let your quest to save a few dollars get in the way of finding a contractor who will do work you can be proud of. Here are some questions you need answered before you decide whom to hire.

How long have they been in business?

This is one of the most important questions you can ask. Longevity is a hallmark of a great contractor in any field, whether it be home construction, remodeling, or even pool builders. A contractor stakes their living on their reputation. For those who just want to get in, do a few lackluster jobs, and get out, reputation is hardly any concern. They go door to door with amazing deals, use less-than-viable materials, and rush the job finished. They get your money and move on to the next town. A company that has been in the area for several years is going to have a history of good work behind them.

Are they easy to work with?

A contractor who will do immaculate work, using only the best workers and materials, isn't always the same as the one you want to hire. Why is that? Because construction of any kind should be a collaborative process. This will be more or less true depending on how much knowledge you have about the construction in question, but the pool builders should be open to your ideas. If you want something that simply won't work, they should be willing to explain why. Some contractors have their own styles and methods and aren't willing to collaborate with the owner. If you want to have a say in your own construction, you might want to find someone who will.

Have they had complaints?

There are too many consumer resources out there to hire terrible pool builders and claim ignorance as an excuse. You can't guarantee you won't have a bad experience with a contractor who is usually very customer friendly, but you can at least make sure you aren't hiring someone who has already angered half the community. Check with the local Better Business Bureau and simply read some online reviews and reports to make sure you aren't getting into a bad situation.
