What to Look For in a Pool Builder

Choosing a pool builder is an important task. A wrong decision can cost you up front or years down the line. Therefore, it is vital to take a little time to make a careful choice. Here are four tips to help you find the best builder for your swimming pool.

  1. Verify credentials: When choosing your pool builder, it is vital to check their credentials. Ask for the company’s phone number and physical address as well as the full name and number of the sales representative. Find out how long they have been in business and how many pools were installed in the last year. Ask them if they handle the construction or outsource it. Verify licensing and certification of all those involved in the actual pool installation. If possible, visit the office location, meet employees and tour the showroom if available.
  2. Assess customer satisfaction: Check the contractor’s rating with the Better Business Bureau and if possible, contact their previous clients and ask them about their experience with the contractor. Because most every business receives a negative review now and then, see how the company handles complaints.
  3. Check affiliations: Find out if your contractor is affiliated with any associations such as the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP). Trade associations often provide lists of members who adhere to a strict code of business ethics and promote professional development.
  4. Ask about insurance: Ask which insurance company you can contact to see a copy of the contractor’s certificate of insurance. A legitimate and professional builder will answer this question and have no problem giving you the name and number of his insurance company. Find out if the contractor has general liability insurance and Workers’ Compensation insurance to cover any expenses that may arise with sub-contractors.
