We are no strangers to colder weather in Northeast Ohio and Erie, PA, and let’s face it, it is starting to settle in. During this time of the year, most pool owners have started to wind down their pool activities. While the last thing you may be thinking about while you are cuddled up inside, is your swimming pool outside, is now the perfect time to be considering ways that you can enhance your pool for the upcoming year? Are there benefits to off-season pool upgrades? We are going to explore some of the ways that the off-season provides an excellent opportunity to consider pool upgrades and improvements that can boost your pool experience for when the warm weather returns.
The Benefits of Off-Season Pool Upgrades
When the weather turns to less than desirable, as much as we may not want to be outside, it is actually one of the best times of the year to tackle projects for your home’s exterior, including your swimming pool. Spring is typically the time of the year that we receive the most calls for people who are looking to add a pool to their home or make enhancements or upgrades; however, this means that people may be missing valuable swimming time, as an inground pool can take up to 12 weeks to build, and that’s if you can get on the schedule right away.
The start of the warmer weather tends to signal to people that it’s time to get their backyard oasis ready for the longer and days and nights outdoors, but if you have a pool, or are planning to add one, waiting until the flowers start to bloom, may set you behind. There are many benefits to off-season pool upgrades, we are going to review them below.
- Competitive Pricing and Availability: One of the key advantages of off-season pool upgrades is that pricing is typically lower, due to the lack of demand. During peak summer months, demand is high, and prices typically rise accordingly. By planning your upgrades during the colder season, you can often secure better deals and have a wider range of options to choose from. If you are looking to add a pool to your space, pool builders, in even the Cleveland area, can work with you any time of the year to design and create the pool of your dreams.
- Minimize Downtime: As referenced above, it can take several months to have a new pool added to your home, and when it comes to upgrades for your pool, such as new decking, added equipment, or whatever other enhancement you are looking to do, having everything done when you are ready to open and use your pool, is ideal. Upgrading your pool during the off-season allows you to minimize downtime and disruption to your swimming routine. Instead of rushing to complete upgrades when you’re eager to jump into the pool, you can take your time and enjoy a stress-free process.
- More Availability: Whether you are looking to add a new pool to your home, repair a leak, resurface the pool, or fix faulty equipment, the off-season it is a great time to do so, because most other home and pool owners are not. The spring and summer mark a time where pool builders tend to work on larger projects and new pool installations, and if you have repairs or remodels needed, you may not even be able to get on the schedule until after the prime swimming season, meaning you may miss the summer fun all together.
- Better Conditions for Landscaping: Living in Ohio and PA has taught most of us that the best time of the year to plant new foliage is in the fall season. This gives the plants time to take root and then blossom and grow come the spring. If you have a pool project that impacts your landscaping, having it done during the off-season, can give you time to tackle the landscaping and have it flourishing and creating that outdoor oasis you dreamed of, when you are ready to enjoy it.
Off-season pool upgrades offer a multitude of benefits, from cost savings and increased availability to minimizing downtime, and giving you additional time to get the space just how you envisioned.
