Pools conjure images of fun and happiness. They often become the centerpiece for a home when the weather is temperate. Cookouts, birthdays, anniversaries and graduations are just a few of the events that are held around pools in warm weather. There are also the quiet moments, like hanging out with the family on a hot afternoon or relaxing as the sun goes down. 

Perhaps you're wondering, 'are there pool builders near me?' The answer is yes, there are definitely pool builders near you. You can't install a pool on your own. There are lots of other things to consider  when planning to add this watery oasis to your property.

1. Type and Dimensions

There are many different types of pools that vary both in cost, the space they occupy and the amount of work that must be done to the yard and adjacent property. Do you want an in-ground or above-ground pool? If you want an in-ground, do you want standard depths for the shallow end and deep end? How many points of egress? How long and wide will the pool be, and what shape will it take?

Making these decisions is usually the crossroads of ideas. On the one hand, you have your desires. On the other, you have costs and potential limitations brought on by the size and shape of your lawn.

2. Immediate Costs

Putting in a pool is certainly an expense, but there are variations in price. The type of pool, as well as materials used, can influence the amount you spend. Above-ground pools are considerably less expensive than in-ground pools because there are only installation costs, rather than the cost of excavating the earth and building the pool from scratch. Above-ground pools do not need filtration systems, though you can certainly get one if you choose. Splasher pools are the most inexpensive, running from a few hundred to $1,000. Above-ground pools with extras, like filtration systems or decking could run up to about $8,000. 

In-ground pools start at around $10,000 but if you want any kind of surrounding ambiance, like a patio or fencing, it quickly goes up to $20,000. Depending on your choice of materials, size and extras, like lights or a hot tub, costs can exceed $50,000.

3. Size and Condition of Yard

Another factor to consider is the state of your yard. Ideally, you want a wide, flat space with dry, malleable soil so that heavy equipment can get to the site and can get to digging once they arrive. Certainly, professionals can do their work in almost any conditions, but the prices will increase if they must deal with a rocky slope or some other potential hindrance.

4. Choosing a Contractor

This is a massive investment so choosing the right contractor is an important decision. Do some research and let it speak for itself. First, you only want to deal with contractors that are bonded and insured. Peruse websites to see what they are all about. Are they delivering the right message? Do they have a complete rendering of their services? Can you access reviews from their social media? How long have they been in business and how are they looked upon in the community? Of course, you'll want to get a price that is comparable and that you can live with, too. Once these details line up properly, you've found your builder.

5. Ongoing Costs

Don't forget that owning a pool isn't a one-and-done expenditure. Among costs that exist after installation are chemicals to ensure clean water, maintenance of the liner and interior finish, opening and closing costs and utility bills. Maintaining your pool is going to cost money that should be budgeted in when initial plans are being drawn up. 

Having a pool on your property is luxurious. It is a virtual guarantee for days and nights filled with relaxing appeal. Planning out your vision by asking and answering some basic questions, then doing some research, is a surefire way to get the results you want.
