Before You Call Your Swimming Pool Contractor
We are a completely honest and up front company, we think you should carefully consider the investment of time and money before becoming pool owners.
Lots of companies post misleading and even false statements about pool ownership on their websites. Statements like "swimming pools add value to your property" or "you will get plenty of use of your swimming pool in the summer" are not entirely true.
For example, in reality a pool adds minimal value to your property. A $60,000 fiberglass pool adds only about $15,000 to your home's value.
Lots of people in the market to buy a house don't want a swimming pool. A swimming pool is a luxury item. It increases your home owner's insurance. The initial cost to build a pool the correct way is expensive. Then it costs money to maintain it. Like everything at your house, it needs to be repaired once in awhile and after years a full renovation may be needed. It is not cheap!
"You will get plenty of use." We know lots of customers who don't spend much time at the pool after a couple of years. The newness and excitement wears off. The kids move on to different interest as they get older or just grow bored with it. Usually the only folks that don't get tired of swimming in your pool is the neighbors.
So, please consider these misconceptions before you invest in a new swimmming pool. Understanding the realities of pool ownership now leaves little room for disappointment in the future.
