With wintertime quickly settling in and cold weather on the horizon, it’s hard not to dream of sunnier days. We may not be able to bring summer weather, but we can offer some advice for how next summer can be even better than this year: By installing a new pool! One of the biggest considerations a new pool owner faces is the question of whether to install an above-ground or in-ground pool. There are benefits and disadvantages to each so in today’s blog, we’re going to give you some tips and tricks to help you decide between them. Then don’t forget to apply for a pool loan so that you can get the process started!
Is an Above-ground or In-Ground Pool Right For You?
While they are a little less common than in-ground pools, above-ground pools offer a number of benefits. The main reasons that homeowners tend to choose above-ground pools are price and timing. Above-ground pools are much cheaper than in-ground models as they don’t require any excavation because they sit on top of your lawn instead of being dug into it. They are also very quick and easy to install as they are sent in the form of a kit which a team of pool installers will be able to put into place within just a few days. And the days of big eyesore standalone above-ground pools are over as newer models offer the option of railings and decking that make your entire back yard more interesting and enjoyable. If you are on a budget or timing is a concern, an above-ground pool might be the best choice for you.
In-ground pools require a good deal more work than above-ground pools but they offer a wide range of customization options. If you are looking for a pool that can be created to your exact specifications then you’ll want to choose an in-ground pool. A custom pool builder can create a pool of any shape or size to fit your specific back yard and needs, making them more unique than most above-ground pool options. However, because they require extensive excavation, installing in-ground pools is an involved affair and can take a number of weeks to complete.
