Looking for a pool for the backyard of your home? If so, there’s a lot of research to do before you make the decision on what type of pool you want, how much you want to spend, and what types of problems you might run into. Inground pool companies take away a lot of the guesswork involved in getting your dream pool, giving you the freedom to sit back and relax while they do the heavy lifting. To start your journey out a little smoother, though, let’s go over some of the options you have and how much they would cost.
A concrete pool has a high initial cost attached to it ranging anywhere from $50,000 to $100,000 depending on the size of the pool. They also take longer to install than other types of pools, like fiberglass or vinyl pools. It can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months for the completion of a concrete pool, but the results are fantastic.
This is the cheapest option when it comes to inground pools, with an initial cost of about $35,000 to $65,000 if you hire professionals. You can save almost $15,000 by installing it yourself, and it only takes from 4 to 8 weeks to finish.
Fiberglass pools may not be the cheapest, costing an average of $45,000 to 85,000 to install. They, however, have the lowest average maintenance cost of both concrete and vinyl pools. Fiberglass is also faster than the previous options, only taking 3 to 6 weeks to be fully installed and ready for use. It is also durable, so you will have a beautiful pool that lasts for years to come.
Choosing the type of swimming pool you want is the first step to enjoy sunny days lounging on a chaise lounge with sunglasses and a glass of iced tea.
