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.
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.

CREDENTIALSHouse Recommended - Best Pool Builder

  • Achieved Certified Building Professional status by APSP**.
  • Letters of recommendations from past construction customers.
  • Fully staffed Service Department with factory trained and APSP certified service Technicians.

**The APSP is the pool industries controlling organization and just this year started a program where they could certify pool contractors to insure that those who hold that status were no other than the best pool builders.The requirements for certification are so stringent that only 68 pool builders nation wide (and as of February 1998 one of only 4 in Tennessee) were approved for certification in 1997.  Tipton Builders Inc.  is one of those 68 chosen nation wide.This certification surely proves that we are one of the most respected in the pool building industry nation wide.

It is not our goal to gain you 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.

Ben Tipton, founder and company president has Certified Building Professional status from the industry’s leading trade association, NSPI. 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.
