4 Common Questions about Buying a PoolWhen it comes to family fun or solo relaxation, nothing beats a backyard swimming pool. But as you consider installing a pool, it’s likely you will have a number of questions, especially if you are a first-time owner. Below are the questions we are asked most often, along with some straightforward answers.
How much do swimming pools cost?
It goes without saying that the cost of a pool can vary widely depending on a number of factors. These include the dimensions, the type of construction (fiberglass, vinyl liner, gunite), and whether there will be any special features like a tanning ledge. That said, we recommend speaking with your local dealer to get a true estimate. There is no commitment or charge for a consultation so what do you have to lose?
How do I find a reputable pool builder?
The short answer here is “research,” lots and lots of research. Installing or renovating an inground pool is a major decision. You need to be sure you are working with a contractor you trust. So we advise starting by creating a long list of candidates based on web research, cross-checking that against references from family and friends, and then making lots of calls and setting lots of appointments.
