A swimming pool is a great place to entertain your friends, gather your relatives, or have your children enjoy summer days anytime of the day. It is a relaxing and fun addition to your home where you can create lasting memories with your loved ones. But buying a pool is not an overnight dream fulfillment or is not something on your lucrative bucketlist of dreams to purchase anytime you want to. It involves planning. Some of the concerns that will pop out about this home project is the pool cost. How much are you willing to spend on building a pool? Before we answer this question, knowing the different types of pool will educate you how much you should be investing.
Types of pools
- Above-ground pools. An above-ground pool with a 19-foot diameter will cost around $6,000, according to P.K. Data. If you go with above-ground pools is because they are relatively cheaper. These pools can be as deep as in-ground pools and as wide as you want them to be, depending on the space available in your yard. One disadvantage of above-ground pools is that they could only have one level all throughout, which will not suit everyone.
- Inground pools. An inground pool with a size of 32 by 16 feet costs around $20,000.00, can have customized shapes, and is classified according to the materials used. In-ground pools have three basic material types based on the liners used; concrete, fiberglass, and vinyl. And with these, prices obviously will vary. Costs vary on maintenance, decking, installation, water treatment, pipes and electrical systems, and other aesthetic add-ons.
In-ground vs above-ground pools
Besides which is cheaper or not, it is difficult to tell the difference when it comes to overall assessment of in-ground and above-ground pools. There are a lot of pros and cons to map out. Should you get an inground pool or an above-ground pool? As a future pool owner, your informed decision affects your choice.
Your dream pool can only be a reality if you lay down the pros and cons and if you make rigid research how it is to own a pool. Keep in mind that a swimming pool addition will affect your home’s architectural design, unless your backyard is wide enough to accommodate space and it will not touch anything on the basic house structure. Second, a swimming pool, whether it is inground or above can be a lifetime investment. You should consider how each type will last, how much more years you are going to enjoy it, and how much more are you willing to spend for maintenance, not to mention resurfacing, which can really be very expensive.
If it is a lifetime investment, a swimming pool will add value to your property, unless you have no plans of putting your house on sale.
