Swimming pool builder.
Here is another way, which isn’t really the right way to look at who they will pick to be their swimming pool builder.
That person will investigate for their swimming pool builder by looking up the BBB or Better Business Bureau. The problem with the BBB is they only recommend a swimming pool builder by who is a member. If a swimming pool builder or his company doesn’t pay the BBB they will not refer you. This is a big reason Crystal Pool and Spas doesn’t belong. You mean to tell me that a company people look to for honest input and that may make your mind up on who to go with, does that on the principle of “who pay’s me”?? I find this very unfair and if the BBB is your way of picking your swimming pool builder, then this is a crime. As a homeowner, you owe it to yourself on doing the necessary homework when looking to who honestly will be your swimming pool builder. There are a lot of swimming pool builder /s that have been bankrupt and been under multiple names. You should ABSOLUTELY do your homework but just basing your decision on a company as the BBB to make the decision for you on which swimming pool builder to pick is not the correct avenue to chose.
A homeowner, doesn’t have the resources and time to investigate all the swimming pool builder /s. It would take getting an attorney to research which company has and has not been under a name change. The problem with this is one company could have re-listed in another state or used their spouse’s name for their new company or even tougher a friend or somebody with a different last name. This industry is known as a “used car” business. There are a lot of swimming pool builder /s that will tell a homeowner whatever the homeowner wants to hear, at least initially.
So you ask yourself how do I look into the right swimming pool builder.
Ask friends, neighbors, family members who have built a pool for them. Ask about their honest experience. Then investigate if that company is under the same owner and philosophy. Another way to determine your swimming pool builder, is when interviewing don’t only hear what they have to offer but listen to that person. Are they throwing out a bunch of beautiful adjectives or are they humble and being honest in what they will provide for you. There are plenty of swimming pool builder /s that give 100% for the sale then 10% for the construction. If it was my pool, I would want a percentage reversal! I’d want a swimming pool builder that cared and that his/her job meant a lot to that person and not just money. You need to go with somebody that is motivated and loves their job. It goes beyond 3D pool designs and plasma tv’s that show your backyard pool on tv with soft music. It IS about who will BUILD your pool. Does your contractor show up only when it is time to pick up his check in his car or non-work truck. Our philosophy is, take a look in the back of our truck and toolbox. WOW, used tools! That is what you need to look for. A swimming pool builder that cares! That is what separates the companies that go through name changes and ones that will fix any mistakes made and build relationships.
These are just some tools in helping you pick your swimming pool builder. GOOD LUCK!!
