The pool manufacturing and pool construction industries have been heavily hit by the pandemic, and there are a few areas throughout the pool building process that are more affected than others. Like many sectors in the construction market, the cost of building materials has risen and building lead times have been delayed, having prospective pool owners to wait six to seven months before construction can begin. But don’t let that deter you from making your backyard dreams come true.
Family pools are more popular now than ever, and when you choose to work with a reputable pool builder that has a long-standing solid reputation in the area, you can rest easy knowing you’ll get everything you want and so much more, even with a longer wait time.
Why Invest In a Pool?
From traditional pool design to more ornate watershapes with infinity edges, and water and fire features, your pool design options are truly endless. These pools can improve your home’s aesthetic, as well as its value, not to mention provide you with a safe alternative for having fun.
A swimming pool is a great way for you to unwind and be refreshed. What better way to bond with loved ones than to take a dip in a home pool? Our new normals have taken quite a toll on everyone’s physical, emotional and mental health, so swimming can be just the outlet you need to bounce back and adjust accordingly. It is a fun way to keep active and fit without actually leaving home.
Beyond this, owning a swimming pool can be a great investment. Prospective home buyers find homes with pools very attractive. It can contribute to a high resale value if you’re looking to list your home, especially in the near future.
What to Expect When Building a Pool
This past year has shown us the value in more together time and making memories in the comfort of your own home. By adding a pool to your backyard, you’re giving yourself, family and friends reasons to smile again. Signing a pool construction contract may look a bit different right now, and that’s OK. While homeowners can expect a longer wait time, roughly six to seven months before construction begins, it’s still the perfect time to start the process.
The cost of construction may continue to rise steadily as we deal with the long-term after-effects of the pandemic. Right now, pool construction materials are already at risk of being on backorder, so you’ll be at a slight advantage by having a little leeway built in to your wait time. Another benefit to buying a pool right now is the many low-interest loans being offered, which makes it a good time to take advantage of the affordable financing opportunities available.
We encourage you to use the time between signing a building contract and construction beginning to really research what you’re looking for in a pool. Find inspirational photos and features you want to emulate. Determine how you’ll best use the pool and the ways in which it can enhance the aesthetics of your home.
