A10. It takes legwork to find the best contractor for your pool renovation job. First, make sure to get everything in writing. Also, ask for referrals and check their references; check government websites to confirm licensing and insurance credentials. Verify national and state trade association credentials to ensure high standards and continuing education – those who invest in course work and rigorous testing to earn professional certifications display a commitment to the profession.
Interview candidates the same as if you were hiring an employee; how well organized are they, what is their process of project management (high level communication is critical to your peace-of mind)? Look at their business experience and management skills. Visit their business location; are they professional, do they have a permanent showroom? Talk with their employees and look around; will someone actually answer the phone, who will you be talking to when you call the office in the middle of your project?
Other questions to ask: how long have they been in business, are they involved in the community, are they trust worthy? Again, get everything in writing and take detailed notes.
