Pool Builders in Dallas
Hiring the right pool builder will make all the difference in how much joy you have in the process. Hirign the wrong pool builder might leave you cringing every time you look at your new pool.
Here are some tips for hiring the best pool builder for your project.
Decide on the type of pool you want
Not every pool builder will build every type of pool. Deciding on the kind of pool you want will narrow your list of available contractors.
Ask around for recommendations
Ask your friends and neighbors who they would recommend. And who they wouldn’t. Check with Yelp, Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau, and Verified Local Pros. Remember that Angie’s List and Yelp are not regulated, so there’s no way to verify the claims of any client.
Verified Local Pros has requirements and verifications to ensure that only the best businesses are listed.
Make initial inquiries
Make a list of a few pool builders who interest you. Call and make appointments to meet with a professional from each business.
Use this list of questions:
- Find out how long each has been in business in [city].
- Ask for references.
- Ask for a timeline for the completion of work. And find out what happens when the timeline is not met, or if it is met early.
- Ask about the permits and equipment.
- Ask when they can start.
- Ask how and when the payments are made.
Make your decision
Once you have decided which contractor to work with, meet with them again to sign a contract. The contract should specify the timeline, beginning and ending dates, cost, and responsibilities of each party.
Experienced Dallas Pool Contractors
With some projects around your home, it saves a lot of money to do the project yourself. Not with a pool. The savings you may imagine are quickly eaten up by the sheer amount of work required. In addition, the average homeowner will not be familiar with regulations and requirements of local government and the Department of Energy.
An experienced pool builder is the best way to make the large investment in a home swimming pool.
