What to Look for in Swimming Pool Builders

A swimming pool is only as good as the builder you choose to hire to complete the job. Installing a pool in your home is nothing like getting a new paint job. If you’re unhappy with the paint job, it’s easy to replace. Pools, on the other hand, are a bit more complex.

They take up a considerable amount of real estate on your property and require the expertise of someone who knows how to adapt your dream pool into the reality of your home’s landscape. That’s why it’s important that you take the time to do your research and choose the perfect swimming pool builder for your project. Here are three things to look for in swimming pool builders Perth wide.

You’ll want to create a pretty healthy list of options so that you can compare their qualifications and prices. In order to create this list, you may want to talk to family and friends and seek out recommendations. Social media is also a good place for this.
  • Talk with the candidates. Once you create your list, you’ll want to talk to each of the contractors. While you can certainly visit the contractors at their place of business, ideally you’ll have them come to your house so that they can see your yard. When you talk with your candidates, be sure to ask for credentials, and ask the contractors what type of pool they suggest be installed in your yard. Before ending your conversation with each contractor, be sure to ask for a written bid that includes a time schedule for start and completion dates.
  • Check validity. Don’t trust the word of your contractors. Once you find a few that you are considering working with, it’s time to check their credentials. You want to make sure each contractor is licensed and insured, and you may want to do research on any online reviews done on behalf of the contractor. You may want to ask for 3 references from each contractor. We suggest you follow up with these references.
