So, you’re ready to build a pool.
You can choose to build a pool whenever you please, but it’s probably no surprise that pool installation sales peak during the hottest time of the year. You know those sweltering summer months when you just want to jump into a cool oasis and escape the oppressive heat? You’re not the only one who feels that way.
High temperatures mean more competition (read: higher prices) in the pool building game. So, what’s a smart consumer like yourself to do? Build your pool in the late fall or early winter. Here are three reasons why…
1. Because it’s possible.
Some places don’t have the luxury of winter time pool construction because of pesky environmental blocks like ice and snow. Not in Nevada! If you live in Summerlin or Las Vegas where the coldest months are just shy of 60 degrees you’re in luck. You have the luxury of year-round construction. Take advantage.
2. Because you can take your sweet time.
Think of this like not grocery shopping when you’re hungry. By building in late fall or early winter, you won’t have the itch to rush the job. Take off the pressure and take your time! After all, you’re (probably) only going to build a custom pool once. Why rush it? Building in the colder months means that pools are less in demand by you and for your construction company – even in Nevada. You’ll have more flexibility and leverage to negotiate better pricing on building and materials than other times of the year. A bit of insider advice: price changes on building materials typically happen at the first of the year, so getting your prices locked in in November or December can save a bundle. Building during the “slow season” for custom pools also means that you’ll probably get more face time and attention from un-rushed construction crews. #winning
3. Because your pool will be ready and waiting for you.
You know what’s a bummer? Thinking how nice a cool refreshing dip in the pool would be, then waiting 3 months to get it. That’s what happens when pool inspiration strikes mid-July. Pools take about 6-10 weeks to build on average. If you get started in December or January that means your pool will be ready for you when the weather to warms up in March. Instant gratification? Yes, please!
The National Association of Realtors estimates that, on average, an in-ground custom pool will increase a home’s value by about 4-6%. You can boost the margins even more by building out of peak season where you can get better deals on construction. While it may seem like a bummer that your sparkling new pool won’t see any use for months to come, the extra money in your bank account will help ease the pain.
In Summerlin and Las Vegas a homeowner can get about 7-8 months of use out of their pool – even more if its heated! Using those 3-4 off months to build will give you the most time in the water, and the luxury of designing to spec without a deadline looming.
