The Best Time of Year to Install a Pool
Alas! You have finally made the decision to install a pool in your backyard. After choosing pool shape, size, and placement, the next step is deciding when to install it. Shoreline Pools builds pools year round, regardless of the weather. However, you may want to consider some seasonal installation differences. Is it more beneficial to build in the fall and winter? How about the spring and summer? Each season offers a considerable list of pros and cons, which should be carefully weighed. Read on to discover what time of year is best for you.
Spring Pool Installations
Many people believe that installing a pool in the springtime is ideal, as it allows you to enjoy your new backyard feature throughout the warm summer months. Since this is the thought process for most homeowners, pool builders usually have busy schedules in the spring. It should also be known that April showers cause floods and softened ground, resulting in installation delays. This may push back your opening day weeks later than you had originally planned.
Summer Pool Installations
If you want to install your pool during the summer, you must realize that this is an extremely busy season for builders. If you’re dead set on building your pool in the summer, schedule it towards the end of the season. This is when builders are finishing up projects from late spring and their schedules begin opening up. The downfall to installing in the summer is that you have to wait an entire year before you get to fully enjoy it.
Fall Pool Installations
Fall months offer stable weather and a steady environment for pool building. The ground is drier, which allows for a faster and easier installation process. Additionally, vegetation is at an all-time high, meaning this is the best time to plant trees and bushes to dress up your new backyard. Much like summer, the downside is that your pool will sit for many months before you finally get to enjoy it. However, that comes with some payoffs. Financially, fall and winter are when installation prices are at their lowest.
Often times, the most discounts and best deals are available in the winter. If a low price is your main concern, then the winter is the best time to build your dream pool. Manufacturers tend to increase prices for the New Year, so be sure to contact a builder sometime before January. The weather is a risk for winter installations, as frequent snowstorms delay the process.
As you can see, there are many different factors to consider when deciding when to install your pool. If you want your pool to be ready for the summer, opt for a spring installation. However, if you want the best price, build your pool in the fall or winter. Be sure to weigh all of your options and make a decision that is best for you. Whether you wait a few weeks or a few months, you will soon have the luxurious backyard you’ve always imagined.
