Pool Design Ideas & Tips

You dreamed about installing an in-ground pool on your property for years. It will add value to your property and provide friends and family a place to hang out. If you’re ready to make the dive, don’t wait until next spring or summer to get started. In fact, this coming fall may be the best time to complete your project.

A bad contractor is someone who professes to be “in the business” of providing a service to homeowners at a greatly discounted rate, often using cheaper products to get the job done. The reality is that a bad contractor will overpromise and under-deliver every time, leaving a homeowner unsatisfied and having to pay extra to get the job done right.
