Why Add A Pool To Your New House?

If you’re in the market for a new house, wouldn’t it be also great to have a brand-new swimming pool in your backyard, too?

A pool can not only change the look of your home but also gives you plentiful of luxury and some fun activity to do with your family. However, before setting up a pool in your new home, there are a lot of factors that should be considered.

Follow these tips below to ensure your pool’s design is seamless with your home’s construction.

Maintenance

One of the first things to keep in mind is that the maintenance of the pool is going to involve a bit of time. No matter how big or small the size of the pool is, you should ensure that you are cleaning it regularly yourself or at least hire a professional.

A pool that is not managed or treated properly results in the growth of bacteria which can cause serious health problems and illness in family members, particularly kids. A well-maintained swimming pool makes a great attraction to every home and will increase the value of your property. Regular maintenance of swimming pool makes your pool maintenance work simple, easy and helps in pool last longer.

Cost

Along with the cost of your new home, building a new pool would mean added expenses. Of course, something that is smaller would mean less of a hassle but the idea is that you still need to dig a deep hole. The tiling, the pool cost, the aesthetic appeal, etc. would eventually all add up to a whopping amount.

The deeper and bigger your pool, the higher is the cost. Moreover, if you are looking for something that is decorated with glass balustrades and marble or granite, then the cost is definitely going to shoot up. Thus, your new home pool can go up or down in the cost aspects as per your decor.

Type of materials & Installation

Your new home needs a pool that matches the standards of your home, design and personal taste:

  • If you own a quaint home with a colonial decor, there are plenty of options like the fiberglass pools that are basically factory-molded. So, what you get is a giant bowl-shaped piece. And this would set right into the hole dug by a crane. All in all, a process that is much faster and suitable for medium to smaller pools.
  • Then there are the smaller Vinyl pools, which are constructed of a pre-formed flexible liner. These too would fit right into the holes and get attached to the reinforced wall. They have a frame made of steel, aluminum or it could also be a non-corrosive polymer. Usually, they come in rectangular shapes.
  • Concrete pools are the standard, classic pools that are made of materials of your choice, preferably concrete. Then there are other options of natural materials also. So, what you can do here is be a bit patient as this requires a rather long time to set up. But the result is a pool that you love for your new home.

Key Takeaway:  What is the purpose of the pool? If you are thinking of it as a party zone then a patio is essential. It would also mean that you require something extra like a pool bar. Or, if you are living in a tropical zone, you may consider partially or fully covered pool. Temperature control is another important consideration for colder places.  Before installing a pool for your new home, do take into mind these factors. Doing so will make the entire process much easier and simpler.
