How to Properly Plan for a New Pool in the Lehigh Valley

Posted March 24, 2022 in 3D Design, Blog, Design/Build, Fence, General, Pool, Videos, Water Feature

A combination of spending more time at home and wanting to provide an at-home vacation setting for your family, residential swimming pools have skyrocketed in popularity. Not only has this hotlist item created a long waiting list with reputable pool installers, but it has also created an even bigger demand for the design of the outdoor living space around the pool.

When making the commitment to pursue an inground swimming pool for your home, it is important to not choose the water feature first then worry about everything else afterward. Chances are, you will be met with long lead times and higher prices if the surrounding space was an afterthought.

If you’ve been dreaming of a new swimming pool here are 3 reasons you should start your process today:

  • Visualize exactly how your new pool will look

Deciding you’re ready to build a pool is just the first of many important decisions you’ll need to make. Next, you’ll need to determine what size, shape, and design will work best for your backyard and lifestyle. But oftentimes, pool contractors in the Lehigh Valley neglect to help homeowners design, plan, and build the space around their pool.

We understand that you are excited to take the first dip in your new swimming pool in Center Valley, Pennsylvania. But, we also know that you won’t fall in love with your new pool if important details are overlooked. This is why we use our proven design/build process to help you plan every detail of your new outdoor living space.

  • Know how much your new swimming pool will cost

The overall price of your new swimming pool in Center Valley, Pennsylvania will depend on the size, location, and whether you want to build the pool with fiberglass, concrete, or vinyl. To avoid wasting money re-doing parts of your build or revising plans, you will also want to make sure to plan for the space around your pool before your build begins!

Oftentimes, we find that pool builders in the Lehigh Valley like to put your pool in “prison”. This could make your backyard look small and make it feel confined. This is why we help our clients visualize exactly how every feature of their backyard will look, in relation to their new pool before the build begins! Your custom 3D design video will let you see and feel how your new pool and outdoor living space will connect with your home, so you can revise any part of your plans and save time and money once construction begins.
