Planning a pool is a big decision. As summer nears, now is the time to build a pool. Below are some tips from Better Homes and Gardens on how to choose a pool builder.
Choosing a Contractor
- Get referrals from friends and neighbors.
- Talk to at least three builders.
- Determine number of years in business under present name and ownership.
- Ensure contractor is bonded and insured. Get proof.
- Visit their work firsthand and talk with the homeowners about their experience with this contractor.
- Talk with suppliers about the contractor’s status.
- Do they subcontract work or use their own staff?
- Do they have design experience? Do they offer design services?
- It is not customary to pay the full amount up front.
- Get lien waivers for all work completed.
- Anticipate a little dirt in your life during construction of an in-ground pool. Your contractor can estimate a project completion date but remember Mother Nature doesn’t always cooperate.
- An in-ground pool takes anywhere from three to twelve weeks depending on the complexity of the project.
