New Vinyl Pool Build PA Decision Time
3 very different proposals somewhat complete details vary by builder. There are so many details, decisions and hard to keep everything straight!! I dont have all the specific part numbers yet. I am trying to finalize decisions, details and check references. It seems the more I know, the more questions and decisions need to be made. LOL There are things I like and dislike about each builder. Each has been building pools for 20-50 years.
I would love to make a decision soon appreciate any help and comments! How long was your decision process? How did you choose?
Builder 1- is a bit upscale and has polymer walls, French drain, Wider concrete deck, large equipment pad and provided a fairly detailed proposal
Builder 2 has hand written proposal and everything else verbal/email so far.
Builder 3 didnt even come to the house. Provided an estimate by phone, but no details behind it. He is recommended by friends and is a high quality builder. He is slow to communicate back.
