Tips on Selecting the Right Swimming Pool Company

What to look for in a custom swimming pool contractor.

Building an In-Ground Swimming Pool is major construction that can take at least eight to ten weeks to completion, that is, with the right swimming pool contractor building the pool. An inexperienced swimming pool builder may take much longer, worse yet, in the end, it may not be all that was promised by the inexperienced contractor. The end result with the wrong swimming pool company can be a problematic pool instead of the backyard oasis you had imagined. 

To begin: nothing should be left to the imagination. Most professional swimming pool companies rely upon pre-written form contracts that cover most of the building considerations for building a swimming pool. Whatever is not included on the contract's anticipated check list for building the pool is usually an extra that can be easily added to the work list. A swimming pool contractor without such a form contract can be the first warning sign of inexperience. All flags should be raised and all checks should be made beginning with the Better Business bureau, and verification of a state builder's license, and a liability insurance policy amounting to at least one million dollars.

A Builder's License, a good history with the BBB, and Liability Insurance is the beginning of your check list before deciding upon which builder is going to build your pool. Of course, the best evidence of quality construction is always in past performance. Many swimming pool companies are reluctant to provide names and addresses of customers clinging to reasons of customer privacy. A reputable company with good history of great installations and happy customers is always proud to show off their built pools and lists of happy customers. So, always insist on seeing a client's list, and also supplier references. You should know the financial stability of the pool builder particularly so during tough economic times. Also, before contracting for your swimming pool you should visit the office or facility of the pool builder. If the facility only amounts to just a garage, or an office without a showroom that may be an indication of the company's limited capability. The right swimming pool company capable of building well designed pools should have all the indications of a full service swimming pool company by just a glance of the facility. Look for a showroom, a suite of offices, and construction equipment, it's the best proof of a full service company capable of designing and building quality pools.

Also be aware that all states have minimum construction standards and requirements such as the thickness of walls and floors. Maintaining minimum standards is required by all contractors, but its the contractor that builds beyond minimum requirements to assure quality construction that should get your go ahead to build your pool. And high quality well built swimming pools can come with life time transferable guarantees on the pool structure itself.

Southern Florida has more swimming pools per square mile than perhaps any other part of the United States. In researching this article, Nationwide Pools of Pompano, considered South Florida's Number One Custom Pool Builder of in-ground pools, provides the homeowner with a 22 step plan of construction so that the homeowner is constantly aware of each construction phase and what's coming next, "Knowing what's going on in all phases of construction provides the homeowner with confidence and can eliminate most of the anxiety".claims the company.

In conclusion, the swimming pool in your backyard can add substantially to the value of your home while providing years of family enjoyment when constructed properly by the right builder. The right company may not be the lowest builder, but as long as the cost equals value, you are sure to get your money's worth by selecting the right custom swimming pool company to turn your backyard into your own family vacationland.
