Several large tree limbs ripped through our cover and in-ground vinyl liner during a bad winter storm. The liner was shredded and needs to be replaced. The good news is that insurance will cover all of the work minus our deductible.
I'm getting several estimates, but don't really know what I should be asking each dealer/pool guy. The cover is still on, so we don't really if there are any surprises underneath the liner, but we should be fine given what the insurance company has told me.
Besides references and such for those I do not know, what should I be asking these guys as it pertains to possible issues we could have with replacing a damaged liner?
Also, can the small business/independent pool guy we have used for small jobs or closings handle this or should I go with one of the big guys in the area? The small guy is coming out Saturday. I assume (and will ask) that he will have help because I know it's not a one man job, but is this something he could technically handle? I like him and would love to give him the work, but also want to make sure the job is done right. We may see a hit in our insurance rates, but technically the cost won't matter to me -- so should I go with the big guy, who in theory will back up their work?
