Remember when you first bought your home in Gilbert? You were so happy and thought that every square inch wasn’t just perfect, but perfectly designed just for you. You pondered over paint samples and pored over home decorating websites determined to make this house a home filled with the love and laughter of friends and family.
And then that first summer hit. Temperatures reached 115 degrees, then kept climbing, leaving you incredulous that stepping outside didn’t cause you to spontaneously combust. You looked out the windows into your barren and sterile backyard and thought, “Next summer we are putting in a pool!”
Well, next summer has arrived, and your backyard still doesn’t have a pool. It’s a big investment and you’re afraid of making a very expensive mistake. We understand your fears, and so we have created this pool buying guide to ensure that you don’t have to live through yet another scorching summer with no respite in site.
Choosing the Right Contractor for Your Gilbert Pools is Paramount
This initial step when buying Gilbert pools is probably the most frightening, but also the most important. You’re going to be spending a lot of time with the contractor, and you are going to need to trust this person in charge of making your dreams a reality. If you like the pool in your neighbor’s yard, ask him if he would recommend his contractor. Scour the internet for contractors and landscapers Gilbert AZ, being sure to read the reviews, but don’t totally rely on those testimonials. Generally, it’s the angry people who tend to leave reviews, while satisfied customers rarely do, and the results could be biased.
Once you’ve narrowed down your choices of landscapers Gilbert AZ, you’ll need to ask a few questions regarding licensing (very important!) and experience. Although there are plenty of skilled but inexperienced contractors out there, when you are making this large of an investment, it’s best to stick with a contractor who has both experience and the qualifications to build your Gilbert pool. Looking through their sample books for photos of pools they have completed will help you make the final decision on landscape design gilbert az.
Does It Fit Your Lifestyle?
Just as no snowflakes are alike, we all have lifestyles that are distinctly different from everyone else, and because there are many pool and landscape design gilbert az options, you need to find the one that fits your lifestyle.
Deciding its use will be important. If you are only planning to read summer books while floating on a raft, a play pool may be just the thing for you. If you have active children who like to do cannonballs and jump off ledges, a diving pool with a grotto, slide, volleyball net, and basketball hoop may be more your style.
Another consideration is the size of your yard. Do you have room for an Olympic-size pool perfect for doing laps, or does your Gilbert home have a typical Arizona backyard that is best suited for a play pool?
Prepare a Budget and Stick to It
If you have to take a second or even a third job to afford the payments, you’re never going to have the time to enjoy it, so determine what you CAN afford and plan the pool around it. Don’t let your pool builder talk you into adding so many fancy extras you find yourself wincing at the final bill.
