In cold weather, most people are usually thinking of cozy lodges, spending time with family during the holidays, and starting up the fireplace. Installing a new pool would probably be the last item on your list, but winter pool installation is actually the best time to add this fun summer feature to your home. Just like winterizing your home takes place in the fall, getting your home ready for summer is a great project for the winter. Here’s a breakdown of why winter is the best time for pool installation.
Ready for the Heat
When the heat of summertime comes around, you’ll already be ready to take a dip into a clear, blue, and cool pool. Having it installed in the winter means that you’ll be ready to go when the summer season comes around. Even if it takes a few months to totally complete the project due to inclement weather, there will still be plenty time to include those custom elements that you want to include in the design of your pool.
Although the weather is often brisk in the winter, it’s still safer on construction workers than the heat of the summer. In the winter, you eliminate the risk of overheating and dehydration while working in extreme heat and direct sunlight. In the winter, especially early in the season, professionals are able to wear lightweight, cold-protective clothing that allows them to still move freely and comfortably. The colder temperatures will also facilitate the drying time of certain materials, allowing the project to be completed faster.
The winter is the off season for pool sales and installation. Therefore, you will have the advantage of cheaper prices for materials and labor. During the peak seasons of summer and spring, or even fall, you’ll have to deal with tighter schedules and higher prices due to the demand from many other homeowners who are also installing pools at their residences.
