5 Tips When Selecting a Pool Construction Company

Having a pool in your backyard is a great way to enjoy outdoor living all year long. Pool construction is no easy feat, however. Neither is choosing a pool construction company. If you’ve decided to take the plunge and invest in a swimming pool, be sure to follow these five tips for selecting a pool construction company. 


Read Reviews

Whether you’re shopping for a new beach read or a backyard pool, reviews are key. See what people are saying about your potential contractor. Be sure your pool construction company is trustworthy and knowledgeable. A positive review will instill confidence, while a negative might reveal any shortcomings. Look to see if the company responds reasonably to negative reviews. 


Finding the Perfect Poll Construction Company Takes Time


Don’t Rush

Rome wasn’t built in a day and your pool won’t be either. Make sure to do your research when it comes to choosing a pool construction company. Don’t rely on reviews alone. Find out why a particular contractor is or is not recommended. Hop in the car and visit your nearest pool store— you can get an idea on how labor intensive the process and get an overall feel for what all goes into building a pool. Find friends or neighbors who have in-ground pools and ask questions. The internet offers a plethora of insights and recommendations if you know where to look. 


Compare Costs

Ideally, you would want to talk to at least three different pool contractors before settling on any given company. Look for a contractor that is not only willing to execute the vision you have for your backyard oasis, but excited to do so! Look for someone who is able to understand your price point. Make sure you’re comparing the same pool style across the board. Everything you add comes with a hefty price increase. An Olympic-sized pool with a diving board and vanishing edge isn’t going to cost the same as a simple wading pool. Once you’ve settled on your three contractors, be sure to request a bid in writing. Compare all three bids and evaluate which one is worth pursuing. 


Building a Pool to fit Your Lifestyle 


Ask Questions!

Don’t be afraid to pepper your potential contractor with questions. The more informed you are, the more equipped you will be to choose a company that is going to be easy to work with and capable of giving you the pool of your dreams. Here are a few questions that will come in handy when trying to decide on a pool construction company:

  • How many years have you been in business?
  • How many pools did you install last year?
  • Do you have any references I can contact?


Call those references!

If the swimming pool builder is more than willing to provide you with a plethora of references, call them. All of them! If the contractor provides you with less than half of their customers as references, odds are this is not the route you want to take. Ask those references what kind of pool they commissioned and see if it compares to what you have in mind. Ask if the pool construction company was able to problem solve well on sight. If a reference tells you they would definitely hire their pool contractor again, that’s a winner right there. 


Picking the right pool construction company can be intimidating. These five tips will help you confidently select the best contractor for your pool building experience!
