You have finally made the decision to have an inground pool built, but you are unsure of where to start. This article is going to give you an overview of the considerations you should keep in mind when choosing your inground pool and having it installed as well as educate you on the different types of pools there are and what questions you shouldn’t be afraid to ask your pool builder.
Before investing in an inground pool, you need to know what type of pool you want, the costs involved with the different types, the construction timeframe and process, the size, shape, and design you want, how you want your landscaping, and how to find a great pool contractor.
Type of Pool
Concrete pools, for example, are very customizable and can be any size or shape that you want. This is great for any backyard, even the smallest one.
You have to weigh the pros and cons of each pool type while keeping your available backyard space in mind.
The price is definitely another consideration. For this, you want to research every aspect of the price, which means making sure to include any extras or other features you may want to be added during construction.
Additionally, factor in the costs of maintaining and running the pool as well to make sure it is still a good purchasing decision. There may also be hidden costs such as the need for a retaining wall, electrical work, landscaping, and dirt hauling.
Once you have your dream pool in mind, it is time to discuss the design with the pool builder. This will also give you a better idea about how long the process may take because it largely depends on the size and type of pool as well as additional features you want to have.
Hiring the Builder
You want to make sure that your pool style aligns with the pool builder, so if they don’t display anything you want, then they are not the right builder.
You should also always look at the website, inquire about the price of any extras, and read reviews and comments prior to beginning your new pool construction.
