Choosing swimming pool builders in AZ is no easy task.  From experience and knowledge to budget and goals, it can be hard to find swimming pool builders AZ that are sure to help bring your dream to life at a price you can afford.  To make sure that you choose the right company, here are 5 things that you need to know before signing that contract:

The Business History

This not only gives you the reassurance that they’ll stay in business while they’re building your pool, but it’ll also allow you to verify:

  • Whether or not they’re licensed in your area
  • If there have been any complaints in the past
  • If they have worker’s compensation insurance
  • If they have liability and property damage insurance
  • If they outsource any part of the job, and to who

Their Clients

The best way to quickly determine whether not swimming pool builders in AZ do a great job is to collect references from the pool company, and then to give those references a call.  Settle for no less than 3, and be sure you get the “down low” on the company (i.e. their performance before, during, and after the construction of the pool).

Their Work Routine

For your own happiness and everyone else in the home, it’s important that you’re satisfied with the company’s work routine. Ask them about what time they start, whether they focus on just one project at a time, and if or when they’ll be disposing of any waste materials.  If you’re unhappy with any part of the routine, by all means request that they change it.  Most companies will gladly accommodate you.

Their Costs

An Arizona pool design and installation company should be transparent about their costs.  Ask for an itemized list of every single charge, including labor, so you have a solid understanding of what you’re paying for before they begin to build.

The Down Payment

Many states in the U.S. have a limitation on how much a homeowner should put down as a down payment, but that certainly doesn’t stop some less reputable pool design Arizona companies from asking for more.  Generally speaking, quality swimming pool builders in AZ  will request no more than 10%-20%.
