HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Sept. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- LOOP-LOC, manufacturer of inground pool liners, shares a checklist for choosing a contractor when renovating a swimming pool.
When it comes to renovating a swimming pool, it is extremely important to follow proper procedures to protect this significant investment. Spend some time researching potential contractors. Here is a checklist to follow to choose the right contractor for the job.
Obtain contractor business information and experience. When compiling a list of potential contractors, make note that each company is licensed and insured and how many years the company has been in business. Ask the following questions: how many pools have they installed since they have been in business, how many pools have they installed in the last year, and how many references can they provide?
Call customer references. Once the potential pool contractors have provided references, take the time to call each one. Ask questions such as: what was most enjoyable about the experience, what was least enjoyable about the experience, what pools/features/accessories were chosen, and how did the pool builder address challenges and issues that arose.
Check with family and friends. There is nothing like word-of-mouth and honest assessments from friends and family when it comes to choosing a pool contractor. Ask these important people the same questions as posed in the customer references to obtain additional information about these contractors.
Remove contractors based on reviews. Take the customer reference information and the assessments from friends and family to cross some contractors off the list. It is imperative to narrow down potential contractors for this important decision.
Contact each potential contractor for a quote. Make inquiries about how much the pool renovation will cost, making sure the price for all work is included in the contract. Have the estimated completion date listed on the contract as well as the workmanship warranty. This will cover any issues such as plumbing leaks, structural problems, and pool movement.
