As you start to fill the coolness in the air, you may notice that your pool needs some good old TLC – when there’s a chill in the air, it’s a great time to start your in-ground pool renovation. Fall is the best time for pool remodeling because there are so many advantages to doing so.
For starters, remodeling during the fall, when the weather is cool, will give remodelers time to work longer and harder, without overheating. You also have to consider the fact that during the fall, there’s less demand for remodeling projects, so the costs will be a little lower. With low demand comes more flexibility in scheduling.
Renovating in the off season could help you save money. As the weather starts to cool down, so does the demand for pool construction projects. Remodeling companies think of fall as their off season. When it comes to getting renovation bids, with the basic economic principle of supply and demand, it could work in your favor.
Spring and summer are considered high-demand months – pool companies normally have plenty of work during this time. For this reason, they may be choosy when they’re determining how much money they should charge and which remodel projects that should choose. However, during the fall, many builders are aggressively seeking new clients – they have crews they need to keep busy.
In addition, another reason fall is the best time for pool remodeling would be the cost of equipment replacement. Typically, during the spring and summer months, pumps, filters, heaters, cleaners, pool control devices and lighting, pricing is increased. By remodeling your pool during the fall, instead of during the spring, you may be able to avoid those price hikes.
Planning Your Remodel
If your pool has flaking paint, is stained or chipped, or just because you feel it is time for a change, it is important that you don’t get too far ahead of yourself – you need to take time to plan. To start with, you need to consider your budget – what can you afford? The color of the pool is something else you need to consider. Would you like the color of the pool to complement or contrast with the color of your house? You may even want to add lighting to the pool itself and update the pool lighting in the outdoor living area.
Backyard aesthetic options have come a long way. Now, we have new materials for natural stone tiles, interior finishing, brick pavers, and stampcrete. Effect lighting, gentle music and fire pits that seductively dance …the sky is your limit.
Like everything else, pool interiors have a tendency to wear down over time. The good news here is that there are many options for resurfacing that pool. With a new finish, you will be able to change the appearance of your pool for the better.
Resurfacing is normally done alongside other renovation, like replacing coping and decking. This makes the cost of pool resurfacing hard to judge, because you will be getting a package deal.
