In-Ground PoolsYou are likely thinking, “What? Why would I be thinking about in-ground pools in February?” Believe it or not, February might just be the best time to do so. If you call a company that installs in-ground pools in June, it will be unlikely that you can get on the schedule and have it done in time to enjoy a full season. While they cannot start on building one for you this month, you can definitely get a lot of the preliminary things out of the way.

  1. Planning – It will take you some time to handle the planning stage of the project. That includes figuring out where you want it located, what shape it is to be, whether you want a gunite or plaster one, and what other features you may want.
  2. Quote – If you get the quote early on, you’ll have more time to plan for the expenditure. You can do some saving toward it and do some shopping around for financing, if needed. You may even find that you’ll get a better price by locking in the contract early.
  3. Permitting – In some areas, permitting for in-ground pools can take quite a while. If you get started on this early, you’ll be in a better position to have the permits in place so that construction can begin on time. You’ll also be able to make the adjustments that might be necessary to be within code regulations.
