Living in Texas means getting to enjoy the booming economy. Already one of the nation’s biggest states in terms of geographic area, the Lone Star State is also a growing market. Many companies have relocated their headquarters here to take advantage of corporate-friendly cities, and many come here from both other states and countries to join the ranks of the affluent and entrepreneurs.
Two other things that can get big and hot in Texas are the sun and the sizes of residential properties. Add the two together, and you might decide it is time for a swimming pool behind your home. Keep reading to know what 8 things you should look for in pool builders Dallas TX:
1) Samples of previous work: Their website at a minimum should have graphs and diagrams of the potential pool builds they can do for you, as well as before and after photos of their previous work in other people’s yards.
2) No-obligation quotes: Part of your process in choosing from the many Dallas TX pool builders you can pick from is going to be getting multiple quotes or bids from them, and hopefully balancing the best possible price with who you feel comfortable trusting your property to. Anyone not willing to do a free quote or consultation probably shouldn’t be a part of the process, and visiting a property is often a must for accurate information.
3) Warranty: You don’t want a pool that’s only going to last a few years. You want someone that will build something that can last a generation with the right maintenance and upkeep and stands by their work.
4) Knowledge of building codes and HOA by-laws: These are the kinds of things that might dictate how you do your pool and if you can even have one. You also are unlikely to know those codes inside and out. Expect a pool builder to know municipal rules better than HOA guidelines, but if they demonstrate HOA knowledge, they’ve either looked it up or dealt with your community previously.
5) Options: Even with their package builds, there should be options you get to consider, ranging from lights and ladders to ropes and diving boards.
6) Scalability: You might fall in love with one particular option but might want it a bit smaller or larger. A good builder can scale their designs to fit your property and desires.
7) A good track record: Previous reviews online from other customers who love their work is always a good thing to see. So is a lack of complaints through the BBB or other outfits.
8) Roots in the area: Try to only use a builder that’s obviously established in the area with an address and community connections. You don’t want to fall prey to someone collecting deposits and then vanishing.
