How to Choose a Swimming Pool Contractor in Los Angeles

Swimming pools might not add tons of home value in some states, but they certainly do here in California! 

With sunny summers, mild winters and an indoor-outdoor lifestyle, many luxury homes in L.A. feature beautiful inground pools with all the latest features, such as automatic cleaning systems, fountains and waterfalls. In fact, one study found that homes in L.A. with a swimming pool sell for an average of $95,393 more than similar homes without them! 

If you’re thinking about adding an inground swimming pool to your backyard, Kavin Construction can help! We are not just a swimming pool company – we are general contractors. What this means is that we can also help with other aspects of your project, such as adding hardscape features, building a deck or installing an outdoor kitchen. 

Our clients appreciate that they only have to work with one team – and an experienced, knowledgeable and trusted one at that! As you start your search for a qualified pool construction contractor in Los Angeles, here are some tips to keep in mind. 

Experience and Background 

Experience makes a huge difference when building swimming pools, as these are big projects that take months to complete and require plumbing, steel and electrical work. Some companies will make you think they have experience, so be wary of vague language. 

For example, there’s a big difference between ‘years of service’ and true experience. Plus, pool companies can be bought and sold, which means the new owner and contractors might not have the same experience.

You can trust Kavin Construction to bring valuable experience to the table. We have over 45 years of experience and a strong pools and hardscape portfolio. We also have positive reviews on a number of sites, including Houzz, Yelp, Facebook and Google. 

Upfront, Honest Pricing 

Another element to pay attention to is the estimate you receive. Swimming pool installation is not cheap. Average costs for an inground pool in our area are between $100,000 and $200,000, though this all depends on the size of the pool, the features you’re adding and other factors. 

As always, be careful about choosing the lowest quote. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The estimate should be broken down so you can see what you’re paying for each service. Also, the estimate should account for everything. You don’t want to be nickel and dimed at the end. 

Kavin Construction will work with your budget! We tell our customers to come up with a budget that reflects the following: 

  • What are you hoping to pay? 
  • What aspects must you have in your pool? 
  • What features are you more lenient on? 
  • What size and depth do you want your pool to be? 
  • What material do you want the pool to be made from? 
  • Are there additional features you want, such as a deck or jacuzzi? 

Quick, Efficient Communication 

You’ll also want to pay attention to the communication the pool contractor provides. We recommend talking to the pool contractor often so that you can get a true feel for their customer service. For example, how quickly do they return phone calls or respond to emails? Do you feel that the people you talk to are friendly and informative? 

Of course, we’re not suggesting to keep calling for the sake of it, but rather to go deeper than the initial consultation before hiring a company. You want to know that once you sign, you will continue to receive great service and feel comfortable calling with questions and concerns.
