Are you thinking about building a pool in your backyard? Check out these tips before building a pool. You’ll find a list of things to think about and ask yourself before you “take the plunge!”
The preparation phase is the first and most important step as you get ready to build your dream pool.
This is where you’ll decide how you want your pool to look and who you’ll hire to build it. Before visiting with a pool builder, here’s a checklist to follow:
- Create a wish list. Have you been dreaming of a pool for years? Do you know just what you want? Do a little homework, so you have an idea of the size, shape and features you’re looking for. This helps you in the decision process when meeting with a pool builder.
- Make a look book (just a fancy name for a scrapbook or wish list!). Head over to Pinterest and type in swimming pools. Then, you can show this to your pool builder when you’re in your first consultation. Making this type of list helps you get a clear idea of what you want in your dream pool.
- Research the types of inground pools. A swimming pool is an investment, just like your car and your home. You’ll find there are many ways to build a pool. Some have vinyl liners, and some are made of gunite (concrete). We can help you with this step.
- Establish a budget. This will help you significantly in your decision-making process. You may know what you’re willing to spend on a new swimming pool, and it’s important to let your pool builder know so they can tailor your pool to your budget. Not sure? We can give you an estimate on what it will cost to help you with your planning.
