Starting your swimming pool project on the right foot is important. The first step is to find a quality builder and determine a realistic budget. Naturally, we suggest Earthworks Landscaping. Remember that a swimming pool is a long-term investment for you and your family.

Because swimming pools are complex systems, our highly trained designers are here to educate you on what matters most. Reach out to our team and let us guide you through the process.

When budgeting for your pool, swimming pool costs can vary widely based on size, scope, and features. A typical price range for building a swim-ready pool could be between $65,000 and $125,000—but that’s a ballpark figure. Don’t forget that quality matters when it comes to a long-lasting investment like a swimming pool.

Several things contribute to the price of a swimming pool, including its size, elevation, type of finish, permits, equipment, and accessibility. To provide an accurate estimate, we must measure your yard and discuss your requirements during a consultation.

Be wary of builders who offer extremely low prices. They may compromise on quality and longevity, using cheap materials and subcontractors. Some low-priced quotes may not include the features you desire. That can lead to additional upgrades and costs later on. Unlike those unreliable builders, we prioritize quality, using top-notch materials and providing comprehensive services, including a warranty, maintenance, and repairs.

The construction time for a swimming pool depends on its size, complexity, and time of year. Once permits have been received and the fiberglass shell is ready for delivery, it’s typically only 1-2  weeks to install a basic swimming pool. But this can differ depending on any number of things. Weather conditions, and demand may also influence the timeline.

We build swimming pools year-round, but demand may affect scheduling. Consider late summer or early fall if you want to avoid peak demand. But no matter the time of year, we are here to assist you in building your dream pool.
