Clark Griswold in the 1989 classic, National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation had the right idea; begin construction on an inground swimming pool in the winter. If you’ve been dreaming of building a custom pool, winter is the perfect to dive in as this will maximize the time spent enjoying your new pool during what we Arizonans like to call “swimming season” (usually April to September for unheated water).
Here are three more reasons why the winter season is the best time to begin a pool build.
Reason No. 1: Added Value
Many pool contractors offer winter savings that disappear as business heats up. Customers can tap into special offers, such as $1,000 in upgrades with new construction, and a $250 Visa gift card with referral once digging commences on your friend or family member’s new pool. Take advantage of these great specials by building your new pool in the winter.
Reason No. 2: Quicker Approval for Permits
Building permits are most easily obtained in the offseason. Because county and city planning, and development offices are commonly less busy in the fall and winter, customers can often expect quicker response times. The same may hold true for utility connections as all electrical and gas hookups are contracted out.
Reason No. 3: Ready by Summer
Swimming might not be the first thing that comes to mind when it’s a chilly 65˚F outside – unless you wish to reap the benefits of cold water immersion – but winter is the perfect time to begin the process. The typical turnaround on a pool build is eight to twelve weeks. Starting your pool build now will ensure its ready by summer thus maximizing the time spent enjoying your new pool.
