How to Know You Have a Bad Pool Contractor

How to Know You Have a Bad Pool Contractor

Here are a few of the key tell-tale signs associated with a poor pool contractor.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of pool builders out there. Finding a capable contractor isn’t always as easy as it may appear initially. There are many warning signs to monitor when it comes to knowing if you have just hired a bad contractor. Here are a few of the key tell-tale signs associated with a poor pool contractor.

Your Pool Contractor Has Poor References

Ideally, you will want your poor contractor to come equipped with a slew of references that provide you with impeccable reviews. If you contact a contractor’s reference and they have less than stellar things to say — that might just be your clear signal that you have hired a poor pool contractor.

Your Pool Contractor Has Unresolved Complaints

Sadly, bad pool contractors are all around. They are the ones with a slew of complaints that are unfortunately left unresolved. The reality is, while you shouldn’t rule out a pool builder just because they have one or two bad reviews. But a noticeable trend of poor or negative reviews could be a tell-tale sign that the pool contractor is no good.

Pressuring You To Make Fast Decisions

When hiring a contractor, there is no need to rush the decision. If you find yourself being pushed to make a quick decision with a potential pool contractor, don’t sign the contract. This contractor could easily be less than subpar if they are quick to make you say yes immediately. Urging you to make a hasty decision is a sign that the pool contractor might not be a great choice.

Bottom Line

There is nothing more important than the contractor you hire to install and maintain your pool. Being mindful of the signs of having a poor pool contractor can make all the difference in how you approach the hiring process effectively and efficiently.
