Posted by msujohn (My Page) on

I am in the process of looking into building a pool and would like some suggestions of good builders in the North Dallas area. HOw many quotes do you recommend I get? I know about some of the big ones; Riverbendsandler, Robertson, etc. I'd like to get some reputable mid size companies as well. I'm only looking for companies that have been in the business for awhile. I've been reading alot of this forum to educate myself and make sure that I know what I want prior to getting quotes.

You should look at Aquaterra. They are really a step above.

We live just outside of McKinney. We ended up getting six bids over a course of 1 1/2 years, as we mulled over salt/chlorine and decking. You might want to try Foley, Claffey, Southernwind & Natural Blue Pools. We also got a bid from Riverbend/Sandler & Hobert. We wanted a smaller/medium company to work with. Decided on Natural Blue Pools in McKinney. Very satisfied. Good luck and have fun!

dfwtex - did you decide to go with salt or chlorine? That is a big debate for me as well. I would really like to do salt - but most of the builders are trying to talk me out of it.
How close were the bids - cost wise from eash other? How did you rank the ones that you got quotes from? Who was second, etc? I'll be looking at these others you provided, thanks?

We went w/salt with a flagstone coping. This was a concern for us as some builders insisted on us signing a waiver. Natural Blue Pools said that 90% of the pools they build are salt and gave us a 3 year warranty on the coping. We had to do salt as my youngest has some skin issues and felt the salt was better for him. Since we also wanted a smaller company (where the actual owner was involved to some degree) we ruled out Riverbend (our 3rd choice), Foley & Hobert. Claffey was our second choice. But, we felt more insinc w/NBP. The top three picks were all about the same price, but it was difficult comparing apples to apples since they all do things differently and use different equipment. Also, we had a lot of decking put in, installed flagstone on old patio and had an outdoor kitchen put in by the same pool builder. We were really wanting a turnkey project. Let me know if you want to come up to Melissa to see our project.
