Pool installation by pool builders
If you are considering putting in an in-ground pool, you need to be prepared.  Knowing the major steps will help ensure you get the pool you want without any major headaches.  It is important to understand what goes into pool construction when you are talking with pool contractors.  This knowledge will also help you spot any potential issues before they become major problems.  Building an in-ground pool requires a great deal of planning.  There are several professionals who you may want to contact, including pool designers and pool contractors.

Pool Designer

The first professional you may want to talk with is a pool designer.  Some pool contractors include the pool design with the pool installation, while others will expect you to already have a design.  If you decide to work with a pool designer, this individual may have pool contractors they recommend.  The pool designer may even work with the pool installation company and give you a package deal.  This is a common practice. Other designers work independently so may only be able to provide advice or tips on hiring a pool contractor.

Hiring pool builders

Who installs your pool is one of the most important factors in the project.  Even if you have a gorgeous design, if your pool builder is difficult to work with, or worse is not capable of installing the pool you want, then the project can become extremely frustrating with expensive delays and cost overruns.  To minimize the possibility of a problem pool project, there a several pieces of information you will need.

Type of pool material

There are three major types of pool material and it is a good idea for you to know the differences as you begin thinking about your pool.   The longest lasting and most versatile are concrete pools.  These pools can be customized just about any way you can imagine.  They are, however expensive and difficult to install.  Vinyl is another option for in-ground pool material.  These are much less expensive than a concrete pool and are easier and faster to install.  If you are considering vinyl for your pool material, ensure the vinyl is very thick so it will resist punctures and tears.  While concrete is more versatile than vinyl, vinyl pools do come is different shapes and sizes.  The third option for in-ground pool material is fiberglass.  Fiberglass makes very good material for an in-ground pool.  It is durable and inhibits the growth of mildew and algae, which makes it easier to keep your pool clean.  Both fiberglass and vinyl pools take less time to install than a concrete pool.
