9 Things to Look For in a Pool Contractor

Having a swimming pool built for your home or business is not a decision you want to make lightly. You want to make you have the right company leading you through the entire process.
At Rising Sun Pools, we work with you on the entire pool process to ensure you are satisfied from start to finish.

When you’re looking for a pool contractor, these are the 9 things you need to consider when making your final decision:

1. Do Your Research

Look for pool contractors in your area. You can search online, ask for recommendations from friends and family. Make sure you take a look at their online reviews to make sure the contractor you select has a solid reputation.

2. Check Credentials

Make sure the contractor is licensed, bonded, and insured. This will protect you in case of accidents or damages during construction.

3. Experience and Portfolio

Look for contractors with a proven track record of building high quality pools.
Contractors with multiple years of experience, like Rising Sun Pools, are well versed in designing and crafting your dream pool. Multiple years of experience correlate with high quality work that is built to last.
In addition to experience, take a look at the contractor’s portfolio of past projects. This will give you an idea of their style, craftsmanship, and the types of pools they specialize

4. References

Ask the contractor for references from past clients. Contact these references and ask about their experience working with the contractor and the quality of the finished pool.

5. Ask Questions

You are spending a lot of money on this project so don’t hesitate to ask questions about the construction process, timeline, materials used, warranties, and any other concerns you may have. It’s a good idea to create a list of questions to bring when you schedule your first consultation or appointment with your pool contractor.

6. Permits and Regulations

Make sure the contractor is knowledgeable about local building codes and regulations. Ask your contractor if you are responsible for obtaining your local permits or if it is something they can offer guidance on.

7. Payment Schedule

Avoid contractors who require full payment upfront. A reasonable payment schedule should be based on milestones throughout the project.

8. Better Business Bureau

You can search the Better Business Bureau’s pool contractors portal here. By thoroughly vetting the contractor’s qualifications, experience, and communication, you can find the right pool builder to turn your backyard into the oasis of your dreams without any major issues.

9. Trust Your Instincts

Ultimately, trust your instincts when choosing a contractor. If something doesn’t feel right or if you have doubts, it’s best to explore other options that align with your vision and values.
