What to Look for in a Pool Builder

A swimming pool is a big investment for homeowners and so it is important to find a pool builder you can trust. You need a pool builder who has an impeccable work ethic and the skills and equipment to do an excellent job.

Nevertheless, choosing a Georgia pool builder can be difficult, so here are some guidelines to simplify the process.

Longevity in the Pool Industry

Everybody starts off in business without any experience, but the swimming pool industry worldwide has a history of fly-by-night operators. So, unless you have solid recommendations that might persuade you to choose a pool builder without a track record, look for a company that has been in business for a long time.

The fact of the matter is that pool builders that don’t deliver what they promise, and fail to exceed or even meet their customers’ expectations, aren’t going to be in business very long. On the other hand, longevity in the pool industry shows stability in the business, which usually indicates reliability in terms of management and the operation of the business, as well as delivery of the pools it produces.

Georgia Pools has been in business for many years and during this time has installed hundreds of high-quality in-ground pools and spas.

A Good Reputation in the Area of Operation

Reputation can make or break any business, and this is no exception for a pool builder. Similarly, word of mouth is one of the strongest recommendations any company can hope for. In essence, it’s marketing paid for by reputation.

Georgia homeowners have high expectations when they invest in a swimming pool, and whether the job is good or bad, they’re probably going to share their experience.

Pool builders, like Georgia Pools, often put testimonials from customers on their websites. But you don’t necessarily have to rely on this information alone. It’s often a good idea to ask to see pools the company has built and to chat to customers face-to-face about their experience.

Georgia Pools operates from Peachtree City and builds pools in various areas including Alpharetta, Atlanta, Brookhaven, Canton, Columbus, Cumming, Fayetteville, Johns Creek, Kennesaw, LaGrange, Macon, Roswell, Senoia, and Woodstock.

Good Publicity and Awards

Magazines and other publications love to feature beautiful swimming pools, particularly those that have won awards. This, in itself, is an excellent recommendation for any pool builder.

Georgia Pools has featured in many magazines and the company has won multiple awards.

Industry Organizations

Does the pool builder you are considering to contract to build your pool belong to any industry organizations? Most organizations are protective of the reputation of the pool industry in general, and they have policies their members must adhere to. This means that members must maintain the very highest levels of professionalism.

Logos of industry organizations that pool builders belong to are usually displayed on their websites.

My wife and I wanted to create a perfect place for our kids to play outdoors, and for us to entertain. Georgia Pools helped us design the perfect custom pool and patio combination. We absolutely LOVE it! Their team was very knowledgeable about the design and build process, and were very patient with us when we had any questions. It seems like their team was in and out! Now our family never leaves the back yard! Thanks Georgia Pools!

We have used one of Georgia Pools’ sister companies in the past to redesign our landscape. We decided that we were ready to incorporate a swimming pool to complete our back yard. Georgia Pools, working with their sister company, created the perfect pool design to fit right in with some of our existing hardscapes and water features. We absolutely love our back yard. Georgia Pools did an excellent job and made our backyard feel complete!

Britt helped us create the perfect pool for our back yard! They had ideas that I had never even considered. They came in, designed the project and completed it all very quickly. Their team was very professional and the construction didn’t totally disrupt our day to day activities! Shane, Britt and their team were amazing to work with. I do and will continue to recommend Georgia Pools to all of my friends and neighbors!

Hey guys.  Appreciate all the hard work and awesome transformation you were able to create for us.  Happy to help with any recommendations (not that you need them) from these 2x happy customers.  The kids love the pool and we now have an excellent place to relax and entertain under our deck.  Also appreciate the intro to Dylan who has helped us start transforming the yard.
