If you’re reading this then there’s a good chance that your swimming pool has seen better days. Don’t feel bad, it’s easy enough to allow your swimming pool to fall into disrepair. When you first move into a house with a pool, you just can’t get enough! Every morning you’re up to with a few laps to get the heart pumping. Then at the weekends, you’re having all of your friends and family over for BBQs and pool parties! You were enthusiastic at first, particularly when it came to its maintenance. You were hot on the levels of the chemicals, you kept the pool clean & free of debris and you did well to maintain the equipment. Then one day…you just, lost interest.
And again, that’s not entirely your fault. Between juggling your work and home life, trying to raise a family, and taking care of the million and one other things in your life, something will invariably suffer for it. That being said; your pool isn’t beyond saving! If you’ve been looking at it recently (in its sorry state) and you’re reminiscing about the good times, then it’s time for a pool renovation!
You can quite literally have your swimming pool restored to how it was before, or better yet; improved. It’s entirely up to you! The trouble is, how can you find the most suitable pool restoration company to suit your needs? If you look online you’ll find hundreds of companies, each claiming to be the very best in the business. That can be overwhelming and stressful, but fortunately, we’re here to steer you in the right direction.
1 – Before and After
Any reputable company worth their salt is going to have a number of examples on their website. You should be able to view before and after pictures of their previous jobs. This will give you an idea as to what they can do for you, and how competent they are at it.
2 – Testimonials / References
Of course, if a company is truly as good as they say they are then they should be more than happy to share some testimonials with you. If you need further clarification, they might even have a few references that they’d be happy to put you into contact with.
3 – First Contact
After short-listing a few strong candidates, it’s time to make contact with them. You can tell a lot about a company based on your first contact with them. How enthused are they to receive your call? Do they seem particularly interested in your project? What sort of questions do they ask? Do you feel like you’re being listened to?
Following that, really you should go with your gut. You’ll already have a fairly good idea about who you have the best connection with and they’re generally going to be the best option for you. Do your research, gather evidence, and go with your gut! Easy.
