How to Select a Builder for Residential In-Ground Pools

In-ground pools can transform your backyard and it can be a lot of fun when you have an accessible pool right in your home. It can be a place for you to entertain guests and just spend a relaxing day. If you have a busy lifestyle this can be a great opportunity for you to exercise and ensure you stay fit and healthy. But to ensure you end up with a well-designed and constructed pool, you first need to find a reliable builder.

It is never a good idea to go with the first builder you find.

You should have an idea of pool building companies in your local area and the services they can provide you with. Cost, quality and time are important factors to consider in narrowing down the right contractor. They should provide you with competitive pricing, offer quality workmanship and materials and complete the job within the discussed timeline. Checking the credentials of the builder will give you an idea whether they are properly insured and licensed. You can ask them to provide you with a copy of their license and insurance so that you can see for yourself whether it is up to date and if it covers everything required. You can verify this information with the licensing board of your state and the insurance carrier. Experience is another factor you should look into. You can ask potential companies to provide you with references so that you can contact their previous customers to ask about their experience with the builder.

You can go through the gallery on their official website to see some of the work done by Free Style Pools. You should also do your own research in finding out the style of pool you prefer. You can check if the gallery of the pool builder has similar styles. This will tell you that they have the right experience to help you achieve your dream pool. Their social media profile will also carry photos of their recent work for you to ascertain the quality of construction. This will also give you an idea of whether they have a good design team in-house to create something to suit your requirements. Ask them whether they have standard designs or whether they are willing to customise their designs to create your vision for the pool.

It is important that quality materials are used for pool construction.

This will affect the durability of the pool and determine the level of maintenance needed along with repairs. So you should ask the builder about the standard materials they use and the reason for using them. Ask them whether these materials can withstand daily wear and tear taking into your lifestyle, pool use and environmental conditions of your area. They should be able to give you a timeline for when the work will be completed taking into account design, obtaining permits, construction and rectifications if there are any. Ask them how they will communicate with you on possible delays or changes to cost. Ask whether they provide a warranty on the materials used and their workmanship.
