Baton Rouge: When is the Right Time to Build Your Pool?You’ve made the commitment to building the pool of your dreams. All of the experts say that in-ground swimming pool construction generally takes 4-6 weeks from dig to dive. But before you break ground on a new pool, you first have to

  • acquire the proper permit
  • decide whether you want a vinyl-lined, fiberglass, or concrete pool
  • agree on the size, shape, and circulation system of your pool
  • factor in lighting, water features, and landscaping
  • determine your budget
  • find your ideal pool construction company

Oh. You know all that? 

 Well, why haven’t you started yet?!

The season, right? It seems almost wrong to build such a summertime oasis as we turn the corner into fall and winter. But, actually, fall/winter is an ideal time for constructing your pool. With the colder temperatures curbing your enthusiasm for swimming, you have the time to carefully design your pool, lighting, water features, and landscaping.

And with projects under construction during the winter, your contractor is able to focus labor and resources on your pool, which helps counter the colder temperatures and shorter daylight hours. 

Although testing the pipes can be risky if freezing temperatures are in the forecast, an experienced contractor will know to ensure warranties on pool equipment will last until they can be properly tested. As we all know, pipe-freezing temperatures are rarely an issue in Louisiana, and if they do dip below freezing, waiting a few days is generally long enough for the temperatures to hike back up and for work to resume as planned.

So what are you waiting for?
