There are many... Starting with promises too good to be true. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. i,e. If you'll sign this contract tonight, I'll throw in this or that, move you to the top of our const. list, guarantee completion by....... On and on and on. Let the buyer beware!!!! Always check out a few references, check w/ the BBB and see what the builder's standing is and how many complaints have gone unresolved. Always request to see at least one completed job in person. Nothing speaks volumes like the final product. Pricing or quote that is unrealistically low. This builder is on his way out of business and you are going to get stuck with warranty issues and/or problems that are ultimately going to fall back on you. He is just trying to get a contract and some money from you to walk with. This answer could fill an entire book and ultimately, you have to make a decision from your gut. Take your emotions out of the equation and use some common sense, do your homework and background checks and you should be fine.

I like that you mentioned to check with the BBB to see what a pool contractor's reputation is like. You can also make sure he has no major complaints, which could be a good indicator of his quality. I am going to have a pool put in this summer, and I want to make sure I choose the best builder possible. I will definitely keep these tips in mind.

After moving into our new home, my fiance and I want to look for a custom pool builder. We would love to have our own designed pool in the backyard to have fun in during the summer. While we are looking for a builder we will go through their references to make sure they do a good job.
I like that you mentioned to check with the BBB to see what a builder's standing is like. That way, you can be sure he is reputable and has a good background. I am trying to find a builder to help me put a pool in next year, and I want the best. I will keep this in mind as I search, thanks a lot!

My husband and I want to add a pool to our backyard, and your article had some great information about the process of constructing something like this. I liked how you said to hire a pool builder after we've checked out a few references and their standing with the BBB. Thanks; we'll keep this in mind when choosing a pool contractor.
