Building a pool in your backyard is a huge decision. It can add economic value to your property and make it more attractive. Once you’ve made the decision, there are a few things you need to consider, one of which is how to choose the right swimming pool builder. Here’s a list of 5 things that you need to look out for.
You should always verify that the business you are considering is licensed and insured. By being licensed and insured you can see that the business is professional and they have taken the necessary steps to make sure that their customer and business are protected from any liability due to loss and damages.
Ask around for references and read customer reviews. Check to see if a lot of people are recommending the business, review the timeframes – how long did they take to build the pool and if they did it within the specified timeframe, and see if any problems were encountered and how they were resolved.
Always read the fine print when you get a quote and make sure that you know exactly what is included in the price. Also, get a few quotes. Don’t just settle for one and make sure that the price you are getting is fair.
A few things you should ask the swimming pool contractor include:
- Do you have workmanship warranty and if yes, what does it cover?
- How long does the workmanship warranty last?
- What happens if there is an emergency? How long does it take to fix a problem?
Design and Project Management
You might have a fair idea of what type of pool you want so you should make sure that the swimming pool contractor can actually build it. They should present a plan for you showing:
- The exact location of the pool
- Where the pump and filter system will be located
- The height of the pool
- The timeframe for building
