Why Experts Say Fall is The Perfect Time of Year to Build a Pool…
10 Great Reasons to Build Your Pool in the Fall:
- BEAT THE RUSH – By waiting until the weather is starting to cool, you miss the height of pool-building season, and have a better chance to find a contractor without a lot of other jobs to divert their attention.
- COOLER TEMPERATURES – The moderate temperatures of fall lend themselves well to working outside. The construction team won’t be thinking about how long it is until they can get inside in the air conditioning, meaning they can concentrate fully on building your pool.
- CONVENIENCE – You will probably want to landscape after the pool is finished. What type of weather do you want to be outside working in?
- BETTER PRICES – As the height of pool season winds down, and dealers begin looking at their year end numbers, you may be able to negotiate better prices or take advantage of overstocked or soon to be discontinued inventory.
- RIGHT TIMING – If you start building in spring, with the hopes of having the pool built in time for birthdays, holidays, etc., an unexpected spring shower can throw your whole timeline off. You can rest easy knowing that your pool will be up and ready to go for summer if it gets started in the fall.
- READY TO SWIM – Getting your pool built in fall means when the mercury starts shooting up in spring, you are already prepared to start spending time in your new pool.
- SAVE FOR DECK – Construction of the pool deck generally comes after the pool is built. Building the pool in fall allows you to split up the construction of pool and deck, and gives you a chance to save money all winter for the completion of the deck, instead of one giant outlay of cash in spring.
- YARD RECOVERY – Fall construction gives your yard a chance to recover over the winter before summer comes.
- HOT TUB FOR WINTER – If you are installing a spa or hot tub along with your new pool, what better time to enjoy it than during the fall and winter months?
- TAX REFUND – Taxes – As you approach the end of the year remember that your pool is not only a major purchase but also is considered a home improvement which can be claimed on your taxes. Imagine opening your pool in the spring and getting a nice tax refund within weeks of each other. That’s borderline backyard zen.
