Now is the Time to Plan Your Custom Pool

It may just be the beginning of spring, but it’s actually the best time to start planning your custom pool. While summer, and with it, peak swimming season, may seem far off, it’s closer than you think. There are many reasons why it’s best to start customizing your pool now, so check out our guide.

Now is a great time to plan your pool because…

It Gives Your Pool Designers and Contractors More Time

The sooner you can call and book a landscape architect and pool designer, the better off you’ll be. Pool designers spend a lot of time thinking about every aspect of your pool’s design, taking into account such factors as how you want to ideally use the pool and your backyard, the challenges posed by your landscape, and what permits and records need to be pulled.

This requires multiple designs and meetings, and they all take time. Sometimes the design process can take between three and six weeks to complete.

You’ll Beat the Competition

Once the weather gets warmer, pool contractors will start to book up rapidly. If you wait till it gets hot out, you’ve already missed the boat and may have to wait in line for your pool to be done. Do you really want to miss out on the whole swimming season and have to wait till next year? When you start the process early, you can book your project ahead of everyone else.

You Will Have Time to Save Up

If you’ll need to borrow money from a lender in order to build your pool, this process will take time. When you plan ahead, you can take your time shopping around for the best rates by the best lenders. Meanwhile, you can be building up your swimming pool fund all the while. It’s a good idea to get quotes from three different lenders to compare rates. Getting a head start means you will have an easier time securing the best possible loan for your pool project.

You Can Take Your Time to Consider the Details

You shouldn’t rush through the brainstorming and design process. After all, you have to live with your pool for many years and decades to come. It should be perfect! With a project of this size, there are so many details to think about, such as the type of pool finish, color options, accessories, sizes, shapes and more.

It Will be Ready When You Want It

Starting the process early means your pool will be ready when you want it – right at the start of the summer swimming season.
