What is a Top Builder? I think it's a company that is:

  • financially successful
  • responsive to customers
  • involved in the community
  • ethical
  • committed to quality
  • focused on education/training
  • supportive of the industry
  • fair to employees

POOL & SPA NEWS celebrates each of these qualities with our Top 50 Builders program, a prestigious award honoring the nation's finest pool and spa contractors. Winners will be featured prominently in the June 10 issue of POOL & SPA NEWS.

Each company’s ranking is based on a variety of factors, including total construction revenue, training and support of staff, use of technology, reputation within the industry, and overall business excellence.

In addition, I’m especially excited to bring back an element to the Top 50 package that garnered a lot of feedback when we did two years ago: Naming a company MVP. While it takes a whole team to create a great business, often there’s a single individual who stands out as a sort of company MVP. We received so many appreciative comments about being able to recognize these exceptional employees that we want to give you the opportunity to do it again. We’ll be asking that you identify one person who was irreplaceable in helping you make the list this year.

On another note, we have decided to continue requiring each licensee or franchisee to apply as separate entities. Multiple franchised or licensed offices may only apply together if owned by the same individual or entity.

Please click here to fill out the entry form. We will need your responses by Friday, March 25.
