Posted May 18, 2023 in 3D Design, Blog, Design/Build, General, Pool, Videos

Prior to hiring a pool contractor, it’s important to determine your reasons for wanting an inground swimming pool. That’s because your goals and intentions directly impact the size, shape, depth, and surrounding area of your new inground swimming pool in the Lehigh Valley. So, here are some things to consider before hiring a pool contractor in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania:

  • Visualize exactly how your new pool will look 

The most important part of any swimming pool contract is a detailed plan. Even better if it includes life-like imagery that can help you understand the real size and shape of your new pool so you can visualize exactly how it will look and feel in your backyard. But oftentimes we hear from homeowners that are unhappy with their new pool because they agreed to something without being able to see it first.

With this process, every step has been carefully considered beforehand, allowing for no surprises before you ever make an official commitment.

  • Carefully choose your new pool materials 

Building a new in-ground pool means you need to make a choice between gunite, vinyl liner, and fiberglass. But it can be tricky to determine the option best suited for you when it comes to selecting the right material for your new pool. So before you hire a pool contractor in Coopersburg, Pennsylvania make sure to take safety, durability, comfort level, and aesthetic appeal into consideration when selecting materials for your new pool.

If you are looking for a simplistic, precast shape with a lower maintenance schedule, a fiberglass pool installation may be right up your alley. However, if you are looking for a custom design, shape, and features along with a mid-range investment, a vinyl liner pool would be the perfect fit.  And for those seeking a fully customizable, larger-than-life, bells-and-whistles swimming pool to set the mood for the backyard, a gunite installation is key. Understanding which material works best may become complicated as each offers its own pros and cons. Ultimately, your budget and goals largely impact the material you choose for your new pool. So consider partnering with a designer who can help you navigate through all the different options when it comes to selecting the right material for your new pool.
