How much does it cost to build a swimming pool?Swimming Pool Cost

There are two types of swimming pools – the above and the in-ground varieties. For the purpose of this discussion, we will look at the costs associated with the installation of in-ground modern swimming pools.

Is there the in-ground pools a DIY project?

  • While some people insist that an experienced home owner could feasibly build the pool on their own, generally it is advisable to pay a professional to tackle the project. Additionally, the professional pools will usually  come with a ten year warranty which translates to a huge amount of financial non-commitment for a very long-term feature.

Typical costs and materials necessary to professionally install swimming pools include:

  • Above Ground – sold as kits or by professional pool companies, these will require some site preparation that could include the need to level the area and provide access to electrical service.

Top Ten Mistakes People Make When Contracting a Constructor To Build a Swimming Pool:

  1. Shopping like you are buying a car.

    Swimming pools are custom construction projects and are built by many individual trades and pool contractors with different standards. All pools are not built the same, unlike a car which is manufactured in a factory under controlled conditions. With a swimming pool much of what you do not see will impact the cost of pool ownership.

  2. Not asking enough questions.

    Do not assume every builder is going to give you an education about constructing a pool or is capable of giving you one, for that matter. The more you know and understand about swimming pool construction the better buyer you will ultimately be. This helps you and your pool contractor. Do your homework. Your resources are endless, so use them!
