If you own a pool then it’s natural to want it remodeled eventually, much like any other part of your home. Whether it’s a cool design that you saw in a home design magazine or because you want to impress your friends, there are plenty of reasons to remodel it. However, remodeling takes a long time so it’s important to pick the right season to do it.
If you don’t know much about remodeling or pool maintenance then you may think that summer is a good time to do it. After all, most people use their pools in the summer, so why not remodel it during this time? Unfortunately, summer is arguably the worst time to do it for many reasons. In this article, we’ll explain why you should pick spring or even winter to remodel your pool instead of summer.
1. It’s too hot to remodel during the summer
If you’re going to remodel your pool during the summer then you need to be aware of the elements. Trying to do hard labor during the summer means that you need to take care of your body. You have to use plenty of sunscreen, you need to constantly stay hydrated due to the heat, and it can be difficult to work when it’s so hot. As a result, you’ll take longer, it’ll be harder work, and you’ll end up spending more money. This also applies to contractors that may increase their prices during summer because it’s tough work.
2. It’s more expensive during the summer
There are a lot of factors that might contribute to the cost of a remodel being higher in the summer. For once, designers and contractors are very busy during the summer because the demand for projects is higher. This results in higher overall costs. In addition, working in the outdoor heat during the summer is tough work. As a result, many companies may increase their prices in the summer to compensate for this. Because of these factors, you can expect to pay a higher price in the summer for remodeling work. If you’re in a hurry then there’s no getting around this cost. You may want to request a quote or an estimate if you’re worried about paying extra for a remodel during the summer.
3. You want your pool ready by summer
Another factor to consider is when the project will be done. If you start a pool remodel during the summer, it will likely be finished in the fall. In some cases, it might even be done during the winter which means you won’t get much use out of it. To remedy this, make sure you request a quote and an estimated time for completion. This will help you determine when you should remodel your pool so that it’s ready by summer. This is why we recommend planning your remodel between winter and spring. This will give you plenty of time to design and plan your pool so that it’s ready to be used during summer.
