Inground Pool Installation Company, How To Choose
What steps should you take when you’re finding the right pool installation company? Well, even though building a pool is a considerable investment, you’re in luck. Finding the right contracting company is easier than you thought.
If you take precautions and go carefully, then you’ll be okay. Here are six things that we recommend doing before you make your final hiring decisions.
1. Check Out Their Website
Once you have an inground pool installation business in mind, head over to their website. Does the website look modern? Is it easy to navigate? Does the website include references and reviews from reputable sources?
If your answer to any of these questions is YES, then the company likely cares deeply about customer satisfaction. A good, transparent website is a good sign.
2. Ask the Company About Their Process
A good pool building company will be transparent with their processes. For example, we pride ourselves on transparency during every step of the process.
We start by giving you a free consultation. Then we move onto 3D drawings for you to approve before we ever start digging. Next, we start in on construction (this is the exciting bit).
We approve every decision we make and take with you before moving forward during the construction process.
Even when we’re done, we’re not done. Our confidence extends beyond construction, and we’ll come to look at your pool three months after we finish construction to make sure that everything is still working perfectly.
3. Ask for References
It’s normal for customers to ask contracting companies for references and reviews – so you should talk to your installer about calling references.
Once you have references in hand, give them a call, ask about their experiences, and ask when they had work done. You shouldn’t be too concerned if the contracting company doesn’t have many references.
Instead, you should be concerned if you’re only given the number of clients that the contractor hasn’t worked with or a long time. At IES Pools, we love it when we’re asked for recommendations because that means we get to show off our great work and happy customers.
4. Does the Pool Installation Company Check-up on Their Work?
The way an inground pool installation company feels about their work is often apparent in the way that they care for the pools that they’ve built. If the company comes to check-in, then you can be confident in their work.
At IES Pools, we come to check up on our work three months after we finish working. In addition to our complimentary check-up, we also host a “pool school” for every one of our clients. During pool school, you’ll learn the best ways to care for your new investments.
5. Look for Something That Sets Them Apart
Every company has something that they’re good at. Whether you’re looking for pool installation experience with all types of pools, excellent customer service, diverse skill sets, or something else—there will be a company out there for you.
6. Do They Offer a Warranty?
All good pool installation companies will offer a warranty. Some companies offer a year, some five years.
IES Pools offers a lifetime warranty on all of our pools. The more commitment to quality your company shows, the better.
