You’ve saved up all year for a swimming pool and now you’re just waiting until spring to break ground. But why wait? It may sound counterintuitive, but fall is actually the best time of year to install a swimming pool. Here are five reasons why you should take the plunge now.
We May Have a Few Months of Swim Weather Yet
It’s not unusual for Los Angeles to have 90° weather well into fall. And a pool heater will allow you to keep enjoying your pool even into the colder months.
The Weather is More Dependable
Our climate is frequently sunny and pleasant year-round. However, the LA area tends to get most of its rain in the winter and spring. Rain can delay construction, so if you’re hoping to get your pool built before the weather takes a turn, fall is your window of opportunity.
Pool Builders are Slammed During the Spring
Everyone wants to have a pool built by summer, which means they typically begin shopping around for a good contractor during the spring. The problem is, most pool builders are extremely busy at that time of year. They might book you one to two months out before they even begin construction. You’d be lucky if your pool was completed by July. Beat the rush and get that pool built now.
Gives Your Yard More Time to Recover
For many homeowners, installing a pool coincides with an extensive backyard makeover. Autumn is the best time of year to plant new trees and bushes. Plus, your yard will have fully recovered over the winter. By spring, you’ll be swimming amid a lush landscape.
You’ll Have All Winter to Enjoy Your Spa
The thermometer reads 55°, but your new inground spa is an inviting 100°. For many, the holidays are an extremely stressful time of year. You’ll be glad you had your combination pool and spa installed early so you can soak your worries away. And if you’re hosting family, they’ll be glad you did, too.
