Have you been dreaming of adding a swimming pool to your property but are nervous about finding the right pool installer? HFS Financial can help you make that dream a reality this year! There are many reasons to add a swimming pool to your property, plus many benefits, ranging from improved fitness to improved mood. However, you must first find the right pool installer to get there. While this can be tricky, we have four steps to get you started on the road to swimming success.
Start Dreaming About Your Pool
Before you even begin looking for your contractor, you must figure out what you want in your pool. The sky is the limit when financing through HFS Financial. An average pool costs $75,000 to $150,000 for an inground pool, but you can get financing for even more if you want something truly spectacular.
For instance, if you know you want an attached, jetted in-pool spa, you will need to find a contractor who is prepared to handle that. Some pool installers have specialties, like including waterfall features, gunite pool construction, or creating saltwater pools, while others have things they outsource. Knowing what you want will help you narrow down the option.
Make a list of must-haves and wants. When you start researching or calling, you can go over your list with potential contractors. This will help them tell you whether or not they can help you upfront before getting too far along in the process and finding out later.
Compile a List of Pool Installers in Your Area
Next, begin your search for your installer by listing all the installers in your area. The internet is an excellent place to start looking at reviews, but specifically, you should look at websites like AngiTM or even regional Facebook groups. Ask your friends and family for recommendations if they have a pool they love.
Compare and Contrast the Pool Builders
Once you have your list, start narrowing it down. Their websites, portfolios, and customer review sites help whittle the list. Once you have your top three possibilities established, call them and have them come to your home for a walkthrough of your yard and for estimates. The price could balloon if you’re not clear upfront about the details.
Check the Pool Installers’ Details
Once you’ve decided on your top choice, do some more homework and check out their business credentials. Make sure they are licensed, insured, and credentialed before signing any contract with them. While these things may not seem critical, they can protect you from a financial crisis should something unexpected happen.
