As the temperatures in the Tampa Bay area start to drop, you may be looking forward to the smell of pumpkin spice and a week or two of sweater weather. While floating in the pool might not be top-of-mind right now, this is actually one of the best times to start planning your custom pool installation. Here’s a look at a few of the benefits of working with a pool builder during the fall and winter months.
1. Greater Availability
A good custom pool builder can be hard to find, and the best ones are in high demand. If you wait until the peak season, you may find yourself on a waiting list. However, during the fall and winter months, things tend to slow down a bit, allowing you to schedule your installation right away. This can help ensure that your project is started and completed on time.
2. Better Weather
Starting in early October, the Tampa area typically begins to enjoy more moderate temperatures and far less rain. Dryer ground makes pool installation easier (and cleaner!). Your installation may also be a bit faster since the team won’t have to take as many breaks as they do during the sweltering summer months. There are also fewer lighting storms this time of year, reducing the chance of weather delays.
3. Lower Prices
Many suppliers use January 1st as the start date for price increases. Getting a contract in place with a pool builder before the end of the year may help you lock in the current rates. This could save you money on everything from materials to equipment and upgrades. You may even be able to take advantage of year-end sales as companies make room for new inventory.
4. It’s a Great Time to Landscape
Pool installation inevitably causes some damage to your yard. Completing your project in the fall and winter months will give it more time to grow back before you’re ready to head out and enjoy the space. This is also a great time to install landscaping to complement your pool area. Planting during the fall and winter will give plants, trees, and shrubs several months to take root, ensuring that the entire area looks lush and beautiful by the time summer rolls around.
5. You Can Enjoy Your Pool by Spring
Colder weather doesn’t last long in Tampa, so you’ll want to make sure your pool is ready to use by springtime. Starting your pool installation now ensures there’s plenty of time for completion. While your friends and neighbors who have procrastinated will just be starting their projects, you’ll be relaxing in your pool and congratulating yourself on planning ahead.
