New Pool Construction FAQ
Are you thinking about building a swimming pool? Do you have questions about how it works? We get it. We’ve answered the most frequently asked questions about building a new pool. Read our New Pool Construction FAQ below.
We’re interested in a swimming pool, but don’t know where to start?
Well, the best place to start is a quality builder and a realistic budget. A swimming pool is an investment that you and your family can enjoy for years to come. Swimming pools are complex systems, and we’re here to educate you on what matters most. Read through this FAQ and then speak to our highly-trained designers on how we can help.
How much does a swimming pool cost?
As you begin to budget, understand swimming pools are a long-term investment and quality matters. In terms of cost, swimming pools can vary broadly by scope. Our typical range is $85,000-$145,000.
What affects the price of a swimming pool?
Swimming pool prices vary because many factors that go into building them. Size, type of finish, elevation, equipment, permits, and access all contribute to costs. The only way for us to give a targeted figure is to measure your yard and discuss these options via a consultation.
Why do some builders quote such low prices?
- Many builders choose cost over quality and longevity. They hire subcontractors, copy and paste designs (regardless if they fit), and use cheap materials.
- Be aware of tons of addendum’s. Some builders will quote an incredibly low price, but it’s a basic pool. To get the pool you actually want, you’ll need upgrade after upgrade. What was at first a great deal, may quickly snowball into much more.
- Compare like with like. We are the ONLY builder and applicator of PebbleTec Pool Finishes in Sacramento. We install Pentair Variable-Speed Pumps and UV/Ozone systems. Many builders do not.
- Many companies are just builders. Meaning when the pool is complete, they’re gone. We are your warranty station; we have a repair department, we offer free delivery and have weekly maintenance.
All these factors contribute to the quality of the finished product. If you want a swimming pool and the bottom line is all that matters, we get it, but we’re not that builder. We’re here to build it the right way, with the best practices in the industry, so that you can enjoy your investment longer.
Do you offer swimming pool financing?
We do not directly, but we’ve partnered with several fantastic home-improvement and swimming pool lenders. Visit our financing page to see all your swimming pool financing options.
How long does it take to build a swimming pool?
Construction times depend heavily on size, complexity, and time of the year. For a basic swimming pool, estimate between 10-14 weeks for construction. Remember that weather, demand, and permitting are incredibly crucial to your timeline and may affect your project timeline.
When is the best time to install a pool?
We build year-round! Keep in mind our building schedule is demand-based, and we do see a spike in projects as it gets warmer. If you’re worried about demand, think about Late Summer/Early Fall! But no matter what time of year, we can help. Speak with a designer about or schedule and how we can build your dream pool today!
