Choosing a swimming pool contractor can be just as difficult as choosing the right pool. Proper installation of a quality pool can save you thousands of dollars, so with this in mind it is important to understand that cheapest is generally not the best.

When you are looking for the right pool constructor to work with you want to be sure that you hire the best you can afford. 

A great way to start is by talking to friends and family that have pools, and see who they used and how they rate their experiences with that contractor. An internet search can be a valuable tool in finding local contractors, but it is important to understand that anyone with a few hundred dollars can get a very professional website designed. 

You will want to be sure the contractor that you find online has a physical location, a business license, and positive references before you hire him to build your pool. You should also ask what type of pool they recommend for your needs and why, how many pools they have installed, how they handle customer complaints, and if they can give you references. 

If you find a very friendly person you may even ask to see the job that the contractor did for them.
