Qualities of a Great Pool Contractor: Communication, Tech, Financing

In part one of this two-part blog series, we looked at some of the key characteristics you should be prioritizing in any swimming pool professional you’re working with. Pool contractors are not all created equal, and ensuring you’re working with a quality expert means looking into several different areas.

At Packman’s Pools, we’re happy to have our swimming pool design and construction services compared to other contractors in the area — both because of our desire to see our clients happy, and because we’re very confident we have the best approach to make this happen.

Communication Qualities

Designing and installing a great swimming pool takes a lot of effort, and requires a lot of communication. You’re working with several different contractors on both the pool itself and its surrounding area, which means you need to keep track of all the details they handle while they’re doing it.

Another key reason to prioritize high-quality communication skills in your swimming pool professional is that this will help you stay up to date — in real time, whenever possible — on the progress of your project. A quality contractor should have no trouble keeping you well informed throughout the process, and this is an important trait to look for when considering who to work with.

Modern Materials and Technology

The swimming pool industry has come a long way in terms of technology and materials you can use. With the advent of robots, CNC machinery and CAD software, it’s now possible to get a high-quality pool built quickly, while ensuring excellent results and a great look.

This is important because it means you’re more likely to save money and have your pool ready for use before you think. But it also means that your swimming pool contractor should be able to explain — in detail — what they’ve done to ensure your pool is both sturdy and beautiful, and this can go a long way toward increasing your confidence in their work.

Financing Options or Recommendations

Another important quality to look for in a swimming pool contractor is their ability to assist you with financing options, whether those are in-house or through a regular recommendation. Pool creation isn’t easy on the wallet, and many homeowners are looking for ways to augment their expenses. Some pool building companies will offer their own financing options, which can be a great way to ease the pain.

Other contractors will have their own list of recommendations for outside financing agencies that can help you get set up with loans or payments that make sense for your particular situation. This is an important consideration to make when deciding who to work with for your new pool — because you don’t want to have to worry about the money side of things while you should be focusing on how excited you are to use this new amenity!
