“If we were family,” here’s how we would help you select a pool remodeling company:
- Most importantly, you need to trust your instincts. You need to be comfortable with the person you’re dealing with. You also need to enjoy and trust the company you hire. If not, chances are you won’t like or be comfortable with the company they represent.
Make sure you understand everything about the quote you receive. You don’t resurface your pool every day; so don’t hesitate asking “dumb” questions until you understand.
Find out how many years they’ve been in business. If you want to chose the right pool remodeling company then you need to know about the type of work they’re capable of doing. If they don’t have many examples or past pool plans or pictures showcasing their work, that should be a red flag. Would you hire someone without a resume or GED?
Understand what type of company they are. Ideally (in our humble opinion), you want a contractor that specializes in remodeling. That means they’re used to getting into and out of yards without disturbing mature landscaping. That also means their people can handle the unpredictable.
As predictable as new construction is, remodeling is unpredictable. Plus, the more a resurfacing contractor subs for pool builders, the less important your single, one-time job will be. And remodeling divisions of larger, new pool companies can often be an afterthought. Do they use their own crews to do the work or sub most of it out? The more sub-contractors in the mix, the less responsible all parties feel about your satisfaction. When you work as a team, it makes a task so much easier. When selecting a pool company, you need to consider the importance of chemistry, efficiency, and seamless planning. Pool construction crews that rarely work together, and lack processes, tend to make multiple mistakes that can lengthen the renovation project and cause numerous concerns down the road. If you want to choose the right pool remodeling company then consider a quality team with many years of experience working together on numerous pool projects and renovations.
Are the owners still active? The more the owners are involved in the daily work, the better the job. Communication with a Phoenix pool company’s owner is a huge step in understanding the vision along with their company morals and values.
- Ask each company about their record with the Registrar of Contractors or BBB. Then consider that record against the number of jobs they’ve done the past two or three years. Also compare the age of their license against the number of years they’ve been in business. A contractor that tells you they’ve been in business for 20 years, but has a license issued three years ago, may not be that proud of the work they did on their previous license(s). Many contractors are working on their third or fourth license because of black marks against their previous ones.
Just like every purchase you make, if it seems too good to be true, or it just doesn’t feel right, walk the other way. When you choose the right pool remodeling company, you should know, because you feel good about it.
