Pools are a great luxury and they are great ways to add value to your home. With this in mind, it is important to understand that pools are not cheap and we are not going to cut corners in the installation of your pool. Doing a top-notch job is our number one goal.
With that being said, here are four practical things to keep in mind when you are planning your pool budget.
1. What type of surface will you choose?
Your pool surface is very important. Not only will it set the tone for your pool, but it will be the first thing that people notice when they look at your pool. Your options include tile, concrete, plaster, vinyl, pebbles, etc. When selecting your interior surface, know that your choice could have a huge impact on the overall cost of your new pool.
2. What type of water are you interested in?
As a new pool owner, you will likely choose between two popular options: the more traditional fresh water pool or a more cutting edge saltwater pool. There are advantages and disadvantages to each option, so be sure to look into both. Additionally, the water system you choose can also be a potential source of long-term savings.
3. What size pool are you interested in?
Most of our clients are interested in having the largest possible pool. There is nothing wrong with desiring a large pool, but it is also important to remember that the larger the pool, the more it is going to cost. Larger pools will require more plumbing, more wiring, and more concrete decking. Be sure to evaluate all aspects of your budget before choosing to build an extremely large pool.
5. Are you interested in a water feature or a slide?
While there are a variety of swimming pool water features available, new pool owners should know that they will likely increase the overall price of your pool. When planning your budget, make sure to leave room for these fun design elements!
