At Travertine Warehouse, we work with both contractors as well as the general public to supply top quality travertine and marble. In many cases when people come in to buy materials for a custom travertine pool deck, they also have questions about how to find the right pool contractor.
To help our customers, we have put together some of the most important considerations when choosing a pool contractor. As this is an investment, you want to be sure to choose the best professional, and to work with a company you trust.
Finding a top pool contractor is a lot like working with a doctor, you want to work with a professional other people recommend and have had positive experiences. Ask friends, neighbors and coworkers if they have had experience in building or renovating a pool, and if they recommend the contractor they selected. It is also helpful to make not of contractors not recommended, as this can help you to narrow down your search.
You can also do some looking around online based on your geographic area. A search through any search engine will provide you with websites, which you can use to compare experience, expertise and actual images of work the company has completed.
Once you have narrowed it down to just a handful of possible contractors, try to schedule a visit at your home to get a more complete estimate. This is also the time to talk to the contractor about his or her experience in designing a custom travertine pool deck.
Ask about their experience with this natural stone, and also about their experience in creating the type of custom pool you were considering. Ask each for a written estimate of the cost of the project, as well as at least 3 or more references of past clients you can contact.
A top contractor will have no difficulty in emailing you the names of past clients. It is important to reach out to these people and ask about their experience.
Finally, if you know you want to have our travertine pavers and coping, make sure the contractor you select is willing to work with our materials to create your travertine pool deck. This is rarely a problem as we are the largest supplier of travertine pavers and coping, and we routinely work with the top pool contractors and designers across the United States.
