What Is a Pool Specialist or Builder?


If you are planning for a new pool, a pool builder will analyze your outdoor space and your aesthetic wishes to determine an appropriate design for your yard, installing it once the plan is developed and approved.

Once the pool is installed, some pool specialists and builders can handle pool cleanings, water testing, renovations and equipment replacement or repairs. If not, many can also suggest Ames, IA companies to help with maintenance down the road. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of pools & spas: Garden & Landscape Supplies, Landscape Architects & Landscape Designers, General Contractors, Landscape Contractors, Solar Energy Contractors.

Before hiring a pool specialist or builder to create your new Ames, IA pool, determine how you'll be using it. Will it be for fun or for lap exercise? Will the primary users be children, adults or a mix of the two? Knowing the use can help you find a builder who shares your aesthetic. You can find more pools & spas in Boone, Huxley, Madrid, Gilbert and Maxwell.

Once you find specialists and builders who share your style, research is critical. Review customer references and comments, collect at least three to four estimates to compare, meet with potential builders in person and ensure that they are Iowa certified service professionals and licensed with the registrar of contractors before making any final decisions. In addition, get a sense whether they plan to install the pool and be done with it, or whether they seem interested in building a long-term relationship with you. Be wary of the former: it's likely a reflection on the level of quality of the pool they plan to build for you.

Questions to ask a prospective pool or spa specialist or builder:


  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Are you licensed and insured? (Check liability insurance and workman's compensation.)
  • How do you charge, and what does that include?
  • Can you give me a written estimate?
  • What do your services include?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When can this job get done?
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget? What about changes due to materials or labor pricing changes? What kinds of situations do you foresee that would cause extra costs?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any important considerations or concerns you foresee with this project?
