When you're considering hiring the services of a swimming pool builder
there are several things you need to take into consideration. This short article will tell you about a few things that you must consider when looking for a swimming pool builder.
Probably the most important factor in considering a swimming pool builder is their experience. If a swimming pool builder has been around for a long time they will usually have a good reputation, of course there are always exceptions to any rule, but either way always ask for references. And if they happen to have any pools under construction in the area, ask them if you can visit the site and talk to the homeowner about their experiences with the swimming pool builder so far.
Another important factor is whether or not the swimming pool builder that you are considering is a licensed contractor. Most of the bad experiences people have with less-than-ethical swimming pool builders come from homeowners that work with an unlicensed swimming pool builder in order to save a little money.
You will also want a swimming pool builder that is insured, you want to make sure that any and all damage that may occur during the installation process will be covered.
Be sure to check if their warranties are spelled out in writing and beware if they are not. However if they are, be sure to get a copy of it and familiarize yourself with the exclusions and coverage, be sure to pay special attention to the so called "Acts of God" coverage.
It is also very important to know if the swimming pool builder that you choose will provide you with service after completion. This is important because there will surely be times you'll have questions in regards to maintenance and times you will need your pool serviced.
