Although summer is still a few months away, it is never too early to begin planning for your new luxury pool. One of the main things home owners need to consider is their swimming pool installer. Doing your homework on a potential swimming pool installer is just as important as researching the type of pool you want for your yard. However, many homeowners aren’t sure what to look for in a swimming pool installer. Here are some of the things homeowners should do when considering a swimming pool installer.
- Recommendations- Do you know of friends or family that have just recently installed a new luxury pool in their yard? Ask around about the swimming pool installer your friends have used. See if they had any positive or negative things to say about their experience.
- References- Ask your swimming pool installer for a list of references from their previous jobs. A swimming pool installer who is hesitant to hand over a list may be questionable. A small list of references doesn’t necessarily mean a poor swimming pool installer; it could mean they are a newer contractor. Choose a few names at random from the list to call and ask questions about pricing and overall experience.
- Instinct- Nothing beats your own instinct when choosing a swimming pool installer. While a first impression can be false, you should also avoid contractors who make you feel uncomfortable or pressured.
- Background- If you have narrowed down your list of possible swimming pool installers, it is important to take your research to a new level. Use the Better Business Bureau to check records of your swimming pool installer and see if negative comments have ever been left. There are other websites to use, but some tend to come with a small fee. Homeowners should also look into the state regulations to determine if the swimming pool contractor has been certified.
