Why hire a pool contractor
So you are looking to have a swimming pool built in your backyard. You’ve waited a long time and had visions of spending countless summers enjoying the swimming pool with your family. The birthday parties, the 4th of July family get togethers, your children’s friends “hangout spot”. So now you are finally looking to move forward with your dreams. So who should you hire, why should you hire a pool builder… Well let’s first go to that all builders are not created equally. Some work off of volume, leaving you as a number and some builders just fax or email plans to subcontractors and hope they do their job. In the New Orleans and Baton Rouge area, there are builders everywhere. But one major question, are they actually a builder. Do they call subcontractors to show up to do your job when they can get to it or does the builder build relationships with the subcontractors where their jobs are put to the front. Does your builder even check on the work of their crew??? All work should be looked over but not in a way where it’s just looked at. A trained swimming pool builder should know what to look for so that NO mistakes are made or no shortcuts were made to save time or money.
First lets state, if you are going to hire the cheapest company should you ask yourself if you should even hire a company at all. If you are paying a company that just calls out things to be done/line things up, couldn’t you do that??? Or if you were to hire another company that you think “WOW” this company has so many referrals! Do you think maybe that company builds say 80+ pools per year and you will be a number. Sure they get say 50 new referrals per year but what happened to the other 30 that were left behind very disappointed. Where a company that builds 15 pools per year and gets 15 happy customers every year, wouldn’t that be what you would want?
If I were purchasing anything that would have to be built like a swimming pool, I would want a company that would be on my job and dictating instruction to his workers rather than taking advice from the workers. Also, I would want to be a name and not a number to that builder. When some companies take on more than they can chew, you are the one that is left feeling like a number rather than an important client which leads to my next point. I would want my project done in a timely manner. Well the company that works off of volume, can’t possibly build a pool in a timely manner. If they were to try, they would have 3 tile and coping subcontractors, 4 deck crews, 3 plumbers etc. So what happens to quality control???? Can you expect the same product from different entities? Or if the contractor that works off of volume do you think if they only had one crew per job to be done, do you possibly think they can complete a job in a timely manner. Especially when they have 10+ jobs going on at all times all year long.
At the end of the day when you are looking to hire a swimming pool builder I’m sure cost is a huge issue but a larger issue should be you being very important to your builder, where you get an answered phone call on a Sunday morning due to your concern. Also, somebody that will actually let’s say investigate your jobs so that there are no issues with the integrity of your job. Also, your job being built in a timely manner so that you can enjoy your pool with water in it rather than a backyard full of mud and concrete.
