Somethings To Look and Watch For When Hiring a Pool Builder:

by | Mar 16, 2012 | blog | 0 comments

So your thinking about building an inground pool.  You may want to ask your prospective pool builder the following questions:
  • How long have you been building pools under this company name
  • Which type of pools do you build and how long have you been building them.
  • Are you an Arkansas Corporation, if so, when was your date of incorporation. (This is public record)
  • Where is your place of business.  Go there and look around
  • Do you have a financial reference, i.e, bank letter in good standing
  • Are you a member of the APSP (Association of Pool & Spa Professionals)
  • Do you build to their (APSP) Standards & Guildlines for Pool Contractors
Just to name a few.

Often you will find “pool” builders who perform other disciplines such as, concrete finishing, landscaping, carpentry, and even home building to name a few.  These contractors are what’s referred to as “jack of all trades”, master of none.  Beware of “pool” contractors who participate in multiple facets of operation.  Becoming a professional pool contractor takes experience and dedication, industry training, specialization in design and company structure set up as a bona fide pool company with a place of business.  This information is easy for one to validate.  With companies coming and going in and out of business these days, you do not want to be left holding the bag as they say.
