All pools must undergo renovations from time to time. Whether you’re in need of a few minor upgrades to your equipment or require a complete pool makeover, it’s important to choose the right company to complete your pool renovations. Quality work will last for years and ensure you get the most out of your pool. Conversely, poor quality remodeling work can force you to deal with expensive repair bills and limit your ability to enjoy your pool.
The following tips will help ensure you get this important decision right.
Criteria to Consider When Choosing a Pool Remodeling Company
When evaluating pool renovation companies, make sure you consider these important factors:
- Quality of customer service – High levels of customer service will generally be an indicator of the type of work you can expect to receive. The pool remodeling company should have good attention to detail, communicate clearly, answer all of your questions and exhibit a commitment to address your specific needs and goals for the project.
- Experience with your specific type of pool – Different types of pools require a different approach to the renovation process. When speaking with the company, ask them about their experience remodeling your specific type of pool. This will ensure they understand the nuances associated with your project.
- A focus on pool remodeling – The scope of work involved in a pool remodeling project is significantly different that what is needed to build a pool. Some contractors specialize in building new pools, while others focus more energy on renovation projects. Make sure you choose a company that has extensive experience working on pool remodeling jobs.
- License and credentials – Make sure you work with a company that has been accredited by either the Master Pools Guild or the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals. You should also ask to see a copy of the company’s license to make sure they have the proper qualifications to complete your pool renovation.
- Portfolio work – There’s no substitute for actually seeing the work completed by a pool remodeling company. When you’re first speaking with a company, ask them to show you pictures of other pool renovations they’ve performed. This will give you a sense of the quality of work you can expect.
- Transparency with pricing – While price shouldn’t be the primary factor you evaluate when choosing a pool renovation company, it’s important that you have a clear understanding of what the job will cost. Make sure you receive an estimate the clearly details all costs associated with the job. If the company can’t provide an honest, transparent estimate before you sign a contract, you should keep looking.
- Subcontractor usage – Some pool remodeling companies will work with subcontractors for portions of the project. This is particularly true with high volume companies that are juggling multiple projects at once. While there is nothing wrong with a pool renovator working with subcontractors, you’ll want to know how much of the work will be farmed out. In addition, it’s a good idea to research the subcontractor to ensure they have a reputation for delivering quality work.
- Online reviews – Make sure you research the online reviews for a remodeling company. You can learn a lot from hearing about the experiences of other customers. While one bad review doesn’t necessarily indicate the company does poor work, be wary of a company that has multiple bad reviews, especially if you’re hearing similar complaints in each one.
