How To Choose A Pool Contractor

How To Choose A Pool Contractor

Pools are a big investment — so choosing the right contractor for the job requires some proper consideration. 

If it’s your first pool, you might not even be sure what qualities to look for in a pool company. Which accreditations are important? Do years of experience really matter? What sort of warranty do I need from my pool builder? 

To help you create your pool builder checklist, the team at Pool Builders Inc will take you through how to choose a pool builder that’s right for you and your backyard. 

5 qualities to look for in a pool contractor

The first thing to check is whether the pool company is a member of the Master Pools Guild. This elite international guild is a hallmark of quality in the pool world, with membership only granted to the very best custom pool designers and builders in the country — and sometimes beyond. By choosing a guild member to design and install your pool, you know that you have selected a trusted name in the business — just like the team here at Pools Builders Inc, an MPG-accredited member for Florida. 

  • Experience 

It’s not to say a freshly formed pool company can’t do a good job, but there’s a lot to be said for having years of experience in the business. 

With decades of operation as a leading pool company comes years of honing design experience and construction skills, along with a deep understanding of the industry, how it’s changed, and what works and what doesn’t. 

Pool Builders Inc in Southeast Florida was established in 1966, granting us almost 60 years of experience to become one of the best at what we do. 

  • Warranty 

A warranty is assurance that the pool company has done a good long-lasting job — and that they know it. Pool warranties can be as short as one year but some companies take it one step further to reassure their customers. 

Here at Pool Builders Inc, we’ve been providing lifetime structure warranties since the 1960s Because we use 100% gunite construction, a highly robust material, along with industry-leading practices and construction methods, we feel confident to offer our customers this lifetime structural guarantee. 

  • Awards

Recognition of quality, practices, and craftsmanship comes in the form of pool industry awards. Moderated and judged by independent bodies, awards are firm evidence that you’re doing something right as a pool company. 

Here at Pool Builders Inc, we’ve won multiple awards over the years, including: 

  • Design awards from the prestigious Master Pools Guild. 
  • Design excellence awards from NSPI 
  • Three wins of the Aqua 100 award, recognizing pool business excellence 
  • Pool and Spa News Industry Choice Award

We’re proud of our awards and are forever grateful to our staff for helping us achieve them, and to our clients who have inspired us to improve throughout the years. 

  • Technology & Equipment 

Awards, accreditations, and warranties cannot only come from superior workmanship, but also from using the latest technology and premium equipment for the job. 

Our team prides itself on implementing innovative and energy-saving technologies into every single pool build. This includes energy-efficient circulation systems, energy-efficient LED lighting, cutting-edge automated control systems, amongst other state-of-the-art equipment and materials. 

Pool Builders Inc has been the leading pool company for Southeast Florida since 1966. Our outstanding craftsmanship and industry excellence have been recognised through our multiple awards and our membership to the elite Master Pools Guild. If you’re starting the journey to a brand new pool, get in touch today. 

Pool Builders Inc. did a great job installing my new pool and patio under difficult site circumstances with a draconian city building code. John Delre was an attentive sales representative and always returned my calls when I had any questions or issues to resolve. DJ and his crew did a great job with the construction of the pool and patio. I highly recommend them!

I am very happy with my new swimming pool. This is my second swimming pool that Pool Builders has made for me and they both turned out beautiful. I chose the company for this pool based on my experience 27 years ago, but I still took a couple estimates before deciding to do a second pool with them. For comparison, my pool walls are a little thicker than other companies wanted to give me and I received an extra return. The equipment was important to me and it is better from what the other two companies were offering. For time.... permitting and design took about 4 months and pool was completed 3 1/2 months later. The process takes time as there were 21 inspections that had to be completed, so patience it needed when buidling a pool. My advice would be to say engaged in the process and have some fun with it.

We could not be happier about our beautiful pool. It is the centerpiece of our outside space. Once construction started, it seemed to go pretty quickly. But more important is the quality and look. We have been swimming every day.

John (sales lead), Bob (general manager) and Daylin (project coordinator) were excellent to work with. Their professionalism and collaboration were apparent from pool design through final inspections. Really a pleasure to work with, and will recommend them to anyone building a pool in SoFL.

As we are in the process of buying a new home, we visited the showroom of Pool Builders on Orange Drive. Their showroom is amazing as they have a complete and operational pool in the showroom. Even more incredible was the amount of time that their representative, John, spent explaining all of the different features and options. John was very knowledgeable on all aspects concerning an outside pool and willing to share his expertise. Thanks so much and great customer service!
