Did you think to yourself this summer how nice it would be to have a pool? If so, you’re not alone. Many homeowners who suffer through the summer’s heat wish they had one to cool off. But if you’ve come to the conclusion that you want a pool, then when should you start planning for one?
The Best Time to Start Planning: Winter
Most pools are built during the spring so that buyers can use their pools by next summer. As such, the best time to start planning your pool is winter.
During the winter, you can meet with pool shops, designers, pool slide companies, and more to help create the pool of your dreams. This process will take longer than you think. In most cases, you need at least 1-2 months to plan and design your pool before construction begins.
Plus, by starting in winter, you’ll be avoiding the rush that many pool companies experience in the spring and summer.
How Should You Start Planning?
Now that you know when to start planning, what should you do once the time comes? The first step is always to find the right contractors and vendors to get the job done. To do this properly, we recommend contacting at least a few companies to get quotes. Once you have hired a company, they will create a timeline for you and work with you to build the pool of your dreams.
