When bidding on projects that have pools, it’s important to get a knowledgeable, experienced pool subcontractor. You want someone who has experience working in the location of your project, and who has the knowledge of every phase of a construction project, and who knows how to perform this specialized work. You can find luxurious pool subcontractors by performing an internet search or using local connections and referrals, but the best way is to use PlanHub’s database.
General internet search
To find a swimming pool subcontractor, you can do an internet search for “custom pool contractors” to get a listing in your area. Your browser will return a long list of bidding sites designed to find a contractor, as well as a list of nearby pool design contractors.
The swimming pool project contractors you see on an internet search are not vetted or prequalified; they just have an online listing. There’s no prerequisite for experience or years in business. Also, they may not be licensed, if that’s a requirement in your state. In order to thoroughly research these pool project contractors, you’ll need to perform extensive searches looking for the company website, licensing status, and customer reviews. And there’s no guarantee that these companies are still in business.
It may take you several hours to find and research just a few contractors, and then you have to try to get in touch with them. If their contact information is not up to date, you’ll have to spend more time researching that.
Local connections and referrals
Another way to locate pool subcontractors for your backyard oasis is to reach out to local connections or get referrals from other contractors or pool suppliers. You may be able to find pool contractors in your local Chamber of Commerce or local pool builder’s exchange. These pool builder organizations usually have rosters that you can search to find a pool construction company to work with.
You can also ask other contractors you work with if they have experience with pool contractors. Site work or excavation contractors would be the best bet to get these referrals.
Whether you find a swimming pool contractor through a local organization or a referral, you still need to do research to confirm that the swimming pool contractor has the skills you need, is licensed, and is looking for work.
PlanHub provides a subcontractor database that makes it easy to find just the contractors you need for your job. You simply type in “pool contractors” in the search bar, and you’ll get a list of contractors in your area.
From the platform, you can send subcontractors messages to confirm their availability and their skill set. Once you’ve chatted with them, you can send them an invitation to bid on your project, and they can have direct access to the documents and files. If they have questions about construction site hazards or more, they can submit them directly to you through the platform.
Using PlanHub to find custom pool subcontractors makes the construction bidding process easy. You have all the pool building information you need to vet and connect with luxurious pool contractors in your area, without spending hours doing extensive research. And the service is free for general contractors.
