About Tipton Pools

Tipton Builder’s, Inc.

East Tennessee’s Premier Swimming Pool Contractor

After more than three decades of building in-ground gunite and vinyl-lined pools, founder and company president Ben Tipton is confident that customers call Tipton Builders, Inc. when quality and integrity are more important than price and When Only the Best Will Do, as the company’s motto states.

Ben Franklin once said, “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

A large part of the company’s success is attributed to its long-term employees who take enormous pride in the pools they have built. This also applies to the service department, which offers routine cleanings, seasonal openings and closings, and repair and renovation of older swimming pools.

At Tipton, we have dedicated ourselves to provide the highest quality of materials and workmanship.

Tipton employees are the best trained and their mindset is to customer satisfaction through providing the highest quality of workmanship.

It is not our goal to gain your business based upon providing you with a low price because that would mean that we would have to use cheap materials, low-quality workers, and may not be able to stay in business long enough to provide follow up service and handle any warranty issues.

Our goal is to provide you with a quality product built by only the best craftsmen using the latest technologies.

After all don’t you owe it to yourself to have only the best?

Tipton Builders, Inc., has grown to one of the best-known pool builders in the East Tennessee area and has positioned itself among the pool-building elite.
