An in-ground swimming pool is one of the biggest investments you will make in a lifetime, and one that is sure to add a great deal of joy, entertainment and relaxation to your family. However, before you simply ‘dive’ right into purchasing your own backyard oasis, the team here at Alan Jackson Pools wants to share some important tips that will help in your decision-making. These tips are sure to be beneficial when you and your family set out to make your all-important decision.
The cost of your in-ground pool will vary depending upon the size, the material, the foundation and its overall layout. To successfully achieve your new investment, it is important to put a proper budget in place first and adhere to that very budget. Pool designs vary in both layout and cost and you need to be practical when setting your own personal budget goals. Determining the extent of your budget, will play a significant role in the size, style, design and construction of your dream pool.
The Overall Size
The size of your pool is dependent on a few important factors. Your budget, of course, but also the space you have accessible for the construction and install of the pool as well as any zoning restrictions that may apply. Our team of expert professionals will perform an assessment of your property as well as an analysis of its terrain, investigate zoning restrictions and offer insight and direction needed to comply with any restrictions you may have.
To choose the ideal location for your in-ground pool, our team of highly skilled technicians are on hand to perform necessary measurements, inspections and assessments to help you to make an informed decision. Be sure to take into consideration any ‘extra’ features of your pool, such as a pool deck, open area around the pool, a diving board, a patio, or perhaps even a hot tub. Do you prefer to have your pool close by to your home, or is your preference to keep it as a quiet, private getaway oasis set back further in the yard? If you have only a small area to work with, then surely the options for your pool placement will be limited. Often times, for smaller areas, geometric shapes are an ideal solution.
Typically, in-ground pools are constructed on level ground, but if you prefer to have it carved into a slope or any other customized install, our team is equipped to handle it all. However, there are several factors we must first investigate before moving forward with your pool construction.
Before we begin the design of your pool, there are some important facts to consider. Is your property low lying and typically prone to flooding? Are there any buried utility wires? Are there any local building codes on easements or actual property lines that we need to adhere to? We also need to ensure that we are able to accommodate the pool construction equipment needed to perform the excavation and install of your pool. When designing the layout of your new pool, you also want to take into consideration the existing décor of your outdoor living space and how much property is accessible for the actual build.
Many of our clients opt to install diving boards and slides with their newly designed in-ground pools. Whatever your preferred features may be, rest assured the folks here at Alan Jackson Pools have got you covered.
