Contractor Contracts

You need to be careful when choosing a swimming pool company. When you buy anything that is a large investment (like a house) you usually take every precaution:

• Get a lawyer to look over the paperwork
• Make sure everything is clear with the bank
• Hire an inspector to make sure everything is right with the house

Building an inground pool should be no different (as far as doing things by the book). For starters, if you're looking to save a couple of bucks—bid out the job to at least 3 contractors to get the best deal.

When it comes time to set up the contract, make sure you get everything in writing. Make sure you read everything you sign. If there are things you don't understand don't be afraid to bring it to a lawyer. Last, you might want to question any contractor that requests an extremely large down payment before getting down to business.
