Having a pool built is an exciting prospect for many homeowners as it gives them the opportunity to transform their backyard into the private oasis that they’ve always imagined it could be. However, having a custom pool built can be an overwhelming process that requires a lot of research and decision-making, which can leave homeowners unsure of where to start. If you are beginning the process of having a pool built, here is a look at a few things that you will want to consider before you consider adding a pool to your property.
Think About The Location
The first thing that you should consider is where you want your pool to go and how big you want it to be. Before you even start talking to contractors, figure out where you want your pool to go, then use spray paint or string to outline the size on location in your yard. This can help you to better visualize what the right location and size would be, which can be important as you do not want workers to break ground only for you to realize that the pool looks too big for your yard.
Don’t Forget Zoning
Just like any other home renovation project, it is important that you find out about your local building codes and zoning regulations, as this may affect where you can put a pool, how big it can be, or whether you’re even allowed to put in a pool at all. To ensure that construction goes smoothly, you will also need to apply for a building permit to help you get permission to start construction as soon as possible.
Consider The Design
Next, you should begin to think about what you want your pool to look like. Consider the shape and color of your pool, and think about any added features that you may want your pool to have. Having a good idea of what you want your pool to look like can help the process to go smoother.
Starting the process of adding a pool to your property can be overwhelming, which is why it is important that you partner with an experienced builder who can walk you through this process and help you make key decisions. Contact us to learn about how we can help turn your dream pool into a reality.
