Been lurking for a couple of years now, and have found this site to be a godsend with my old AG, and also a black swamp Cinderella story IG at a flip house I bought awhile back. Thank you to all who take the time to post and help the many people you may not even realize are reading!
We moved to our dream house in Canton Oh almost 2 years ago, and have finally decided to take the plunge for our own inground pool this year, but I'm not having an easy time coming up with a list contractors to interview.
So far I've got:
One vinyl pool quote... Owner was very odd, took no measurements, didn't step foot in my back yard, only glanced back there from inside my patio door, and was mostly dropping the names of Dr's. so-and-so that he built pools for. There was no way to connect with this guy and he really came off as disinterested.
One shotcrete guy...Also the owner, and we really have clicked personality-wise with him, but he is really disorganized and getting information back from him is always delayed and excruciatingly slow. We've been discussing various ideas, prices, etc for well over a month and feel like there's been no forward progress with him.
At least 4 other calls to area pool builders that have not been returned.
Can anybody here recommend a pool contractor in this area they had a great experience with?
I'd also be interested in hearing any negative experiences so I know who to stay away from?
Thank you in advance for anything you're willing to share!
