Pools are a great way to enjoy the summer sun. Swimming pools provide homeowners a place to relax, entertain, and exercise. They add a touch of luxury to any home and can increase the property’s value.

Before you hire a pool builder to help with the installation, there are a few things to consider.

1) Shape, size, and features of the pool

Do you want a rectangular pool or a free-form pool? How big do you want it? Do you want a water slide, or a diving board incorporated into the pool? Find answers to these questions before you start talking to pool builders.

2) Location of the pool

Where do you want the pool located? The location will impact the pool’s size, shape, and features. When choosing the location, it is essential to consider the sun, wind, and privacy.

3) The landscape around the pool

The pool builder will need to know what landscaping you have or plan around the pool. This will impact the design of the pool and the type of materials used. Consider factors such as:

  • Type of cement work around the pool.
  • Plants and trees that will be close to the pool.
  • Fencing requirements.
  • Inclusion of additional features like a gazebo or a pergola.

4) Maintenance and upkeep of the pool

Pools require regular maintenance and upkeep. So, consider the cost of chemicals, filters, and regular cleanings while planning your budget. Opt for pool builders who offer maintenance services to make things easier.

5) Warranties and insurance

Ask the pool builder about warranties and insurance. Most pool builders will offer a warranty on their workmanship. Ask about what is included in the warranty and for how long it is valid. Also, be sure that the pool builder has liability insurance in case of accidents.
