If the time has come to take the plunge and build a pool in your backyard, you are to be congratulated and choosing the contractor is a decision that requires careful thought. You certainly don’t want to take a chance on a new business, who may not have the resources needed to carry out the project, and with that in mind, here are some important aspects to take into account when choosing a swimming pool builder.
To start your quest, use Google to bring up a list of pool companies that service your region of Australia; then you can browse the websites and create a shortlist of potential contractors. For such a large project, you really should invite several companies to quote, asking each to send a technician to your home on separate days, which allows each to make a presentation. This gives you a chance to make an informed decision and you should get a good feeling from at least one provider.
Ask for Customer Reviews
Anyone can take a few images and upload them onto a website and if you want to see first-hand the contractor’s work, ask for a few addresses of previous projects. A leading pool builder would be able to furnish you with quite a few addresses that you can visit, which brings with it some peace of mind, knowing you are dealing with industry professionals.
The ideal way to go about asking for quotes is to crunch the numbers and come up with what you feel is an appropriate budget for the project, then you can pass this information on to the contractors and see who can offer you the best deal.
Of course, a lot depends on the available space you have and by sitting down with a pool designer, you can quickly create a computer image of the pool, complete with dimensions. You will need to decide whether to have a fibreglass or a traditional concrete pool; the fibreglass option is considerably cheaper for obvious reasons, and there are pros and cons for both materials. Choose top quality tiles and they will stand the test of time and once the pool is finished and handed over, search online for a provider of pool certification in Stanhope Gardens and book a pool inspection.
You can read more information about swimming pool safety from State government websites, which will help you to make the preparations to make the pool compliant.
