Tips for Choosing a Swimming Pool
We all know the two words that describe summers in Corpus Christi; hot and humid. Wouldn't it be great to beat the heat in your own personal oasis? Having your own swimming pool gives you the opportunity to not only relax in peace, but to spend time with family having fun in the sun!
We completely understand how daunting adding a swimming pool to your property can seem, and that it may be difficult to know where to start. But don't worry, we're here to help! Here are four things you'll want to consider before and when starting the process of adding a pool area to your residence:
1. Do you want a custom or standard pool?
One of the first things to consider is whether you want a custom pool built specifically for you and your family or if you would rather go with a pre-existing design. This decision impacts the pool building process in a couple of ways. First, it will definitely have an impact on the cost of the project. Second, this decision affects the amount of time the pool design and installation will take. For instance, if you're thinking about installing an infinity pool, if will take the longest and cost significantly more. Lastly, it will have an impact on the overall look and feel of your backyard and swimming pool. Custom swimming pools are more expensive, but depending on the design and features, they don't have to break the bank. That's the beauty of the custom designs; it's all up to you! In addition, while custom pool will take longer to design and install, Pool Builders Corpus Christi ensures that we are efficient and affective. It won't take as long as you think it will, because we work hard to get the job done right and in a timely manner.
2. What do you want your pool to be made out of?
Swimming pools are made from a wide range of materials. There's gunite, vinyl liner pools, fiberglass, and a bunch more! Each offers it's own list of pros and cons, and you'll want to choose the material carefully and wisely. Vinyl liner pools tend to be the cheapest, but eventually you'll have to replace the liner. Gunite pools are more expensive, but are practically indestructible and require less maintenance.
3. The deck
Every swimming pool needs a deck. Without one, there's nothing protecting your pool from the grass in your yard. Decks also offer a place to set up lounge chairs and tables and can also hold hot tubs and other elements of your backyard paradise. Depending on the installer you choose, you may even be able to create and install a full outdoor kitchen attached to the deck. If this is what you're looking for, make sure the company you choose is able to offer custom pool deck construction, as well as swimming pool installation.
4. Additional Options
Not too long ago, swimming pools were very basic structures. You had a rectangle, square, or octagon type of shape, and the only real customization options you had were for the design on the interior of the pool (color and pattern of tiles, for instance). Things have changed over the past decade or so, and we now have plethora of additions we can choose to add to our swimming pools. Some of those popular additions include infinity edges, waterfalls, kiddie pools, hot tubs, and water slides.
We also offer outdoor living areas that will provide a place where you and your family can create memories or where you can enjoy time alone after a long day of work.
Adding a swimming pool to your property is a big deal. It's of the upmost importance that you choose a pool contractor that is reputable and that will put you first. Pool Builders Corpus Christi has years of experience designing and installing custom pools and decks, as well as maintaining and repairing pools that are already installed. Whatever the job is, our goal is for you and your family to beat the heat the best way possible, in your own personal paradise!
