For most individuals, building a swimming pool fulfills a bit of a personal dream. They have visions of spending the summer in the backyard with friends and family, cooking hamburgers on the grill, enjoying a few drinks and just enjoying themselves. Unfortunately, that dream can become a nightmare if they don't choose the right pool builders.
The right pool builders will help you achieve your goals and make a backyard pool, spa, or kitchen that fits your needs, your budget, and can be enjoyed for years to come. The wrong pool builders can cost you time, money, and rob you of your dream.
Before choosing pool builders, you first need to determine what type of pool you would like to build. The type of swimming pool you build will be based on several factors such as personal taste, geographic location as well as budget.
After you decide on the type, shape, and pool equipment you want, you'll need to develop a list of potential pool builders. Start with any personal references from friends and family who have worked with pool builders recently. A reference from someone you already know and trust is probably the greatest place you can start. You can also drive around your area and look for gunite trucks or any other tell-tale signs outside a house where a swimming pool is being built. Don't be afraid to knock on the door and ask the owner how things are going and how they feel about their pool builders.
Once you have a list of pool builders, start narrowing them down. Check your list against the Better Business Bureau to be sure that they are licensed and insured, and also find out how long they have been in business. You won't want to be the guinea pig for a new builder. You'll want someone who has been around awhile and is likely to be around in the future
