With winter coming quickly, many College Station homeowners are looking to install a new in-ground pool, and it’s the perfect time for it! There are quite a few things to consider before you just call up a contractor, though, and we’re here to discuss them so you can be fully prepared.
- Decide what’s most important about the pool for you.
Determining what you’re really looking for in your pool, for example: a modern design, something customizable, simple maintenance, a specific size, is going to be most helpful when you finally talk to a contractor. They can help you figure out what style, design, and type of pool will be best for you and your space.
- Set a budget.
Make sure you know how much you’re wanting to spend before you meet with a contractor as well. Get financing worked out beforehand so you don’t waste the contractors or your own time if things fall through. Combining a budget and a priority list will help you figure out what you can actually afford from your list and what might have to wait.
- Swimming pools increase property value.
If you’re looking for something that your family can enjoy here and now, but that will benefit you in the long run when you sell your house one day, a swimming pool will definitely do that. Though depending on the cost of your pool and your ability to properly maintain it over time, you may or may not be able to make a profit from a swimming pool alone. This is something to consider before investing, though at Pools by Brannon we do other outdoor living features as well and can give you a deal on a pool plus other construction combo! This can help increase your property value even more than with just a pool.
- You can have a pool no matter the size of your yard.
Gunite swimming pools, the kind we build here at Pools by Brannon, are made on site, which means they can be absolutely any size. This is a huge benefit for those that have smaller yards and are worried about the ability to find a pool small enough to fit. As long as you’re aware that the smaller the yard is the smaller the pool will be, there should be no issue with providing you and your family with a stunning new swimming pool.
- The more knowledge you have, the better off you’ll be.
Doing your research before you talk to a contractor will allow you to know what you’re getting into. It will also allow you to better communicate your wants with your contractor as well, and make sure you’re not going to get things you don’t need. Knowing terminology will allow you to stay informed during the entire process, from designing all the way through construction, and you’ll be glad you took the time to learn it.
Keeping all these things in mind should allow you to navigate the swimming pool construction process with ease.
