New pool build in Prosper, TX - looking for advice on these quotes
I am new to the forum and in the "research stage" at this time. Was curious to know if the price per liner foot mentioned by Divin Dave ( $ 920 / $ 850) is a reasonable way to getting a ballpark estimate.
I also wanted to mention that, in general, I prefer never to state my budget. I would rather provide any vendor with detailed specifications of the pool design and equipment specifications - just helps to keep the comparison apples to apples and prevents anyone from deviating.
I also wonder if there are any pool consultants who are available to be the "buyers" eyes and ears to ensure that the design specifications are being met - for a reasonable fee ofcourse. It is impossible for most average homeowners like me to ensure that we are getting exactly what we are paying for. From what it seems, most pool builders sub contract their work to other smaller vendors and even with a project manager, are they really looking out for my interests or just doing barely enough to get the project finished and move on to the next. From all that i have read, it can easily turn into a disaster.
Thanks to all for making this an amazing forum.
