Seahorse Pools & Spas contractors offer ways to avoid pool construction mishaps
Swimming pool contractors in Fort Worth, Texas from Seahorse Pools & Spas have heard many horror stories from potential customers who have worked with other pool contractors and their pool projects just didn’t work out like they dreamed they would. Your swimming pool is such a major investment that you need to take your time, research and find a contractor with experience and a great reputation to take on your family’s pool project. Not doing this could mean to a pool project that is not what you’d dreamed it would be and one that can bring with it a high price tag.
How can you avoid pool construction mistakes? Here are some tips:
- By not asking enough questions. When working with a swimming pool professional they know you don’t have all of the answers and in may not even know what to ask. But remember, no question should be off limits. Your swimming pool project is a major investment and you need to have all of your questions answered. A professional swimming pool contractor will come armed with information to share and anticipates your questions.
- There is no one-size-fits-all with swimming pools as each is as unique as the owner who invests in one. Your pool contractor may offer a “package” but be aware that inside of each package are parts and portions that you can, and probably should, customize to your unique needs.
- Don’t get stuck in the “analysis paralysis” phase. What does this mean? It means you’re doing too much research and are now frozen in place because you have too much information and now you can’t make a decision. Gather two or three estimates – you don’t need a dozen. Meet with the pool contractors, and make a decision.
- Not checking out the references, history of projects and the experience of the pool contractor you’re considering working with.
- Shopping and making a pool decision based solely on price. To get a true cost estimate you need to compare apples to apples.
- Signing a contract without understanding all of its nuances. Read it all, even the fine print and ask questions about anything you don’t completely understand. If you don’t understand it, don’t sign it.
- Focusing your efforts, and dollars, on aesthetics and not considering the investment in a potentially higher priced energy efficient pool pump will save you money in the long run. The money you pay up front for more energy efficient equipment will save you money in the long term.
- Not understanding landscaping and decking options. The pool deck should be part of the project.
Work with experienced pool contractors and they will help you avoid costly mistakes and assure you get the pool of your dreams.
