Backyard pools are in high demand right now. While you’re probably beyond excited about getting a pool, the most important thing to remember at the moment is to be patient. If you choose to forgo the expected waiting period and settle on a lesser pool builder who promises an instant job, you may regret it later. 

Many homeowners will attest to unsatisfying pool design and construction, and when you go on to ask how they came to such a standpoint, the answer is often the same – the wrong hands built the pool. We recommend you have plenty of knowledge about the contractor you plan on using for your pool project. 

Imagine getting a bad pool deal because you settled for a shabby builder. You don’t want that to be your situation. The following tips will help you to choose the right pool builder.

It’s a red flag if a pool builder claims to be qualified for the job without saying exactly where their company is situated. Ensure they’re an established company with a physical location and that they’re not working out of a truck. For one, it’s nice to know you can find your builder at an actual address. Also, with limited materials, suppliers are focusing on builders they already have a relationship with. 

Imagine if the outcome of the pool installation is nothing like you hoped for. This can be disappointing. It happens when the pool builder doesn’t have much experience on the job. It’s important to consider a pool builder with several years of experience. Reputable pool builders are able to maintain their trustworthy reputation and will have the reviews and references to back it up. 

A quality pool construction company should be happy to show off past work and have no issue with you talking to previous customers. References speak for themselves. It’s important for pool builders to provide potential clients with references so they can get a better understanding of how the company works and what to expect. 

It’s important for your pool builder to be an active member of trade organizations. Reputable organizations such as the Pool & Hot Tub Alliance, Carecraft, and the Better Business Bureau all have public websites where a potential client could learn more about a company. On top of that, make sure your builder is an authorized Hayward dealer for the best pool equipment in the business.
