To get the best pool contractor in Phoenix for
your project, you need to meet with each of your
prospects face-to-face.
You need to treat this meeting like an interview
youre hiring someone to work for you, so you
must put in the time and effort necessary.
This presentation focuses on what you need to ask
a prospective pool contractor in Phoenix during
your interview.
The goal of these meetings is to judge each
companys business, competence, commitment to
your project and credibility in the market.
You also need to carefully evaluate the contract

The examples below show questions you must ask
your pool contractor in Phoenix.
  • The Business of the Pool Contractor in Phoenix
  •  
  • How many years has the company been in business?
    Although many competent contractors start a
    business and dont yet have the history behind
    them, you may not want to be the guinea pig.
    Companies that have been in business for several
    years have a track record and customer
    testimonials you can evaluate.
  • Is the contractor licensed and bonded? Visit the
    Registrar of Contractors for further information
    on the benefits of selecting contractors with
    these credentials.
  • Does the contractor have insurance, and if so,
    what type? This is a critical area to make sure
    you cover all your bases. Property damage,
    workmans compensation and personal liability
    need to be covered by the pool contractor.

The examples below show questions you must ask
your pool contractor in Phoenix.
The Business of the Pool Contractor in Phoenix
  • Does the contractor have an office and showroom?
    Having a physical location you can visit calms
    the nerves of many homeowners. Chances are,
    theyre working with a stable pool contractor in
    Phoenix with strong ties to the community.
  •  
  • What organizations does the contractor belong to?
    Are they a member of the Better Business Bureau?
    What about the Association of Pool and Spa
    Professionals (APSP)?
  •  
  • Always ask why you should do business with the
    contractor. Your pool contractor should have no
    problem answering this question and providing
    evidence of a solid track record to back them up.
  •

The examples below show questions you must ask
your pool contractor in Phoenix.
Contract Terms
  • What warranties are provided? You absolutely
    must get a warranty. If not, keep looking.
    Carefully evaluate the terms of your warranty so
    you know exactly what is covered and not covered.
    And remember to work with stable companies. If
    your pool contractor goes out of business, your
    warranty is worthless.
  •  
  • What does the proposed price include? Could
    there be additional costs and what might those
    be? You need to know exactly what youre paying
    for and every service and equipment cost needs to
    be spelled out.

Service
  • Will the pool contractor in Phoenix do a final
    site clean up? Is this service included in your
    contract price?
  •  
  • Will the pool contractor give you a training
    session? You need to be taught how to use your
    pool equipment and how to maintain your pool.
  • Whos going to be doing the work? Are they
    employees of your pool contractor in Phoenix?
    Make sure you know what work may be
    subcontracted. Who will be responsible for the
    performance of these contractors?

Pool Equipment and Building Techniques
  • What brand and type of equipment will be used in
    your project? Is it top-of-the-line and proven
    in the market place? Is it the latest
    technology?

your pool contractor in Phoenix.
References
  • Can your pool contractor provide a selection of
    finished projects for you to contact the owner
    and/or visit? You want to see first-hand the
    quality of their work and how they treated their
    customers. Get a list of dozens of names you can
    choose from and talk to at least five former
    customers.
  •  
  • Ask about supplier references. Customers often
    overlook this reference check. Good supplier
    relationships mean your pool contractor in
    Phoenix has paid its bills.
  •  

Installing a pool is an exciting process, if you
select the right pool contractor in Phoenix.

smoothly and youll be enjoying your new pool in
