When is the best time to learn how to finance your 2024 pool project? It’s now. Believe it or not, the swimming pool contractors from Advanced Pools, Inc in Memphis Tennessee are already filling their calendars for the construction of swimming pools for next year!
What that means for you is if you want to be having a staycation at your own home next summer, now is the time to give us a call and let’s start the conversation on what you want to see in your dream pool project. We will show you the ins and outs of the construction process as well as the ongoing costs of upkeep and maintenance to help your pool last a lifetime.
While this may not be a consideration right up front, your inground swimming pool can increase the resale value of your home. You will also need to factor in the costs of the chemicals to keep the water clean, the electricity it takes to run the pump, filters and heater as well as the cost paying for the swimming pool if you’re just having one installed.
When you work with us we can help you through the budgeting process as well as the ins and outs of the entire construction project.
How to finance your 2024 pool project
- The most important part of your pool project is knowing your budget. What is the budget for the entire construction of the pool AND what will you be budgeting for when it comes to increases in utilities and upkeep and maintenance? Letting us know what you want to spend for the pool itself will help us work with you to choose the size and shape of your swimming pool and the material from which it will be constructed. Once that has been determined we can give you an estimate on what it will cost in utility increases and upkeep.
- Are there accessories like diving boards, slides, beach walk-in designs, sun shelves, fountains or rock waterfalls you want for your pool? What about a pool heater? Don’t forget the fencing — required by law. Add in the cost of a pool cover, too.
- We can let you know what the additional costs may be for obtaining construction permits and licensing and inspection charges.
- Costs associated with the installation of filtering systems, heating, lighting, running electricity to the swimming pool, sanitation equipment and other pool items necessary for the operation of your pool. Some of these items may be included in the construction costs, others may be considered add-ons. Ask us for a complete breakdown on pricing so you don’t have any financial surprises. Ask any and all questions you have so that you’re fully informed.
- Check with your homeowner’s insurance agent to see whether the installation of a swimming pool will impact insurance premiums. You may need increased coverages but your agent may also not offer any coverage and may, in fact, cancel your policy. Don’t assume you know the outcome — find out before any construction shovels have gone into the ground.
- This isn’t a cost, but a benefit… the fun you and your family will have in your pool for a lifetime!
Begin swimming pool “shopping” with a firm idea of what you can afford for construction and maintenance so you won’t be surprised and won’t be swayed when faced with a myriad of choices. You can plan for add-ons now and add them in as time goes on and your budget allows.
