What makes a Miami pool builder great? That can be a difficult question to answer.

A lot of it is subjective, like if you like their design style or team members.

Reef Tropical Pool & Landscape can design, install and maintain your complete project — from your pool and spa to the surrounding plants and turf.But when you want to compare apples to apples with different pool builders in Miami, there are a few unbiased components to consider:

  • Company’s level of experience (ex. certifications, past projects, etc.)
  • Range of in-house services
  • Experience with local pool codes and mandates
  • Responsiveness

Whether you’re a contractor working on new construction or a homeowner who wants to add a stunning water feature to your outdoor space, having the best South Florida pool builder can make all the difference.

We’re obviously fans of our pool services here at Reef Tropical, but that doesn’t mean we can’t recognize good work from other Miami pool builders: Competition makes everyone better, meaning greater results for you.

Plus, the best company for one person might not be the best for another. You need to find the one that’s the best fit for you. In no particular order, here’s an objective look at the six best Miami pool builders.
