Building a pool is an exciting process, and if you’re like many homeowners, you want it finished quickly so you can start enjoying your new outdoor oasis. While build times used to average a few months, today’s “new normal” has pushed extended build times out even further, leaving homeowners wondering just how long it will take to have their pool built. So what has pushed pool build dates out as much they have?
Swimming Pools Are in High Demand
It’s no secret that we’ve all had to find more exciting things to do without leaving home. Playing outside in the yard is great, but having your own swimming pool is even better. As a result, the demand for swimming pools is very high right now. We started seeing this trend in mid-2020, and it’s continued well into 2021, so right now most pool builders have a longer waitlist they need to work through before they can begin your project.
The good news is that it shows you’re making a great decision! A swimming pool is an excellent way to safely have fun and make memories in the comfort of your own home. However, the high demand means that there is a delay in getting your build moving forward. Give the expert pool builders at Tampa Bay Pools a call at any time to learn more about our current pool building timelines and when you can expect our consultations and construction to begin so you can plan your project accordingly.
Shutdowns Have Caused Delays in Permits
Building a pool is a significant construction project. There’s the design stage, and then we need to get permits from your city municipalities prior to construction beginning. Permitting is another part of the pool building process that has been affected by COVID. Many municipal governments are running behind on process approvals, so it’s important to apply for permits as early as possible.
Materials Are in Shorter Supply
The shutdowns in 2020 and early 2021 affected every industry, including construction and building. That means that building materials are harder to get and take longer to arrive than anticipated. The good news is Tampa Bay Pools anticipated this happening, and we’ve actively placed orders well in advance to continue to keep our building materials as stocked as possible. While this doesn’t mean we’re free and clear from any future delays, we continue to be in touch with our materials suppliers and equipment manufacturers, placing orders on a constant basis to stay ahead as much as we can.
A New Pool is Worth the Wait
While it may take longer than usual to build your pool, we can assure you that the finished product will be worth the wait and your valued patience. In the end, you’ll have a safe and beautiful outdoor oasis to enjoy with your friends and family for many years to come.
