Before you pick any pool builder, large or small, you should keep the following valuable advice in mind.
The Phoenix Better Business Bureau reminds you that Arizona requires pool builders to be licensed with the Registrar of Contractors. Consumers are encouraged to check for current licensing as part of their research.
Local pool expert Kevin Woodhurst offers this important advice:
- Check the Arizona Registrar of Contractors website for unresolved complaints or a pattern of problems. Make sure the owner is the qualifying party.
- Check with the Better Business Bureau to find out if they have anything negative on their record.
- Check trade associations like the Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) and their Southwest Chapter to make sure that they are working proactively within the business community. Companies and individuals that get involved with their industry and community show a level of commitment and duty that will likely show up in their work.
- Make sure you check references, but keep in mind that no company is going to give you the name of a customer who will give them a bad reference.
Do your homework and consider many factors when selecting a pool contractor. No business is going to be the cheapest, the fastest, the biggest, the best, the most certified, and provide the best customer service.
