Canberra is no stranger to scorching hot days, and everyone here knows how much of a relief a good swimming pool can be during summer. Pools are the perfect way to beat the heat while spending time with friends and family, and can add incredible value to your home. So why not consider elevating your outdoor space and installing a pool?
Canberra is home to many pool specialists and installation companies offering exceptional services. Using state of the art tools and technology, as well as high quality materials and industry expertise, pool installation companies can help turn your backyard into the perfect summer entertainment space. So how do you go about choosing the best company for you?
In this article, we’ll take you through some of the most important factors to keep in mind when looking for a professional pool installation company, as well as a list of some of Canberra’s best.
What makes a great pool installation company?
There’s a lot to take into consideration when installing a pool, and it’s key that the company you hire is worth their salt. Look for the following traits in the service you hire:
- Knowledge and expertise. As is the case with any major construction project, it’s very important that your contractors know what they’re doing. With background knowledge and experience, you can be assured that the final result will not only look great, but last a lifetime.
- Tailored services. Obviously, not every backyard is the same – from sloping or odd shaped yards, to large plant life. A great pool installation service will work with your backyard to deliver the results you want, and create a space you’re happy with.
- High quality technology and materials. With sub-par tools and materials, the pool won’t be installed properly and will be prone to damage. Look for companies that are using state of the art supplies. Check of qualifications and certificates to verify these supplies, and read through reviews of past customers.
- Transparent prices. Having a pool installed can be quite the investment – you want to feel like you’re entering into the project with your eyes wide open. No one likes surprise fees or dishonest pricing schedules, so make sure your company is being completely honest with you about the costs from start to finish.
- Reliable timelines. A pool installation can potentially render your backyard unusable for some time, which can be quite the inconvenience. A great pool installation company will not only give you an estimated finishing date before the project starts, but they will also give regular progress updates.
