3. You must verify the license and registration provided by the contractor. You may also request other proof of identification to ensure that the person you have hired is the one to whom this license has been issued.
4. Pools can be of various categories, such as concrete, fiberglass, in-ground pools, etc. Regardless of the type of pool you want to build, ask for references. Be sure to check out the completed jobs and the ones currently in progress.
