Residential pools have become hot commodity items since the start of the pandemic, leaving many reputable pool builders having to push projects out farther than they’d like to. It’s a side effect that becomes more apparent as demand continues to increase, which makes now the perfect time to build a pool. If you’ve been on the fence about investing in a pool, here’s what you need to know and why you shouldn’t put off starting your backyard pool project. 

Why Invest In a Pool?

From traditional pool designs to more ornate waterscapes with infinity edges and water and fire features, your pool design options are truly endless. These pools can improve your home’s aesthetic, as well as its value, not to mention provide you with a safe alternative for having fun. 

A swimming pool is a great way for you to unwind and be refreshed. What better way to bond with loved ones than to take a dip in a home pool? Everyday life can take quite a toll on everyone’s physical and emotional health, so swimming can be just the outlet you need to bounce back and adjust accordingly. It is a fun way to keep active and fit without actually leaving home.  

Beyond this, owning a swimming pool can be a great investment. Prospective homeowners find homes with pools very attractive. It can contribute to a high resale value if you’re looking to list your home in the future. 

Why Build Now?

The longer you wait, not only will it take longer to build your pool, but the more money it could potentially cost you. The reality is that the cost of pool construction will continue to rise steadily as we deal with the long-term effects of the pandemic. Additionally, pool construction materials are already at risk of being on backorder. This limited supply coupled with high demand means a much longer wait time. The earlier you get started, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy your pool. 

It’s important to note the value of waiting for a reputable pool builder rather than turning to one who will overpromise and under-deliver.
