Want to Build a Pool? 4 Reasons to Consider Above-Ground Construction

Want to Build a Pool? 4 Reasons to Consider Above-Ground Construction
Posted By: Lizzie Weakley on April 23, 2021

Adding a pool to the inside of your home or backyard is an idea that has crossed many homeowners' minds. But everyone has different ideals of the perfect pool. An above ground pool gives you a wide range of design and installation options to consider.

Affordable
Above-ground pools are friendly to the budgets of individuals and families with modest incomes. Installing an in-ground pool is more laborious and involves digging several feet into the ground. An above-ground pool only needs to be inflated or built to stand upright on the ground. The average cost of an in-ground construction varies from $30,000 to $70,000. A few more thousands of dollars are added if a deck or special pool features are included. An above-ground cost varies from $4,000 to $12,000.

Stylish
Many people think that all above-ground pools are made in the same generic designs. They believe that the designs cannot accommodate unique pool features like waterfalls, tile flooring or diving boards. In reality, there are countless above-ground models and layouts to choose from.



The pools can be equipped with LED lighting, temperature controls, spa jets and other customizable features.

Easy to Install
An above ground pool installation, under ideal conditions, takes hours to complete. This is compared to an inground pool that takes days or weeks to perform a few, major steps, which are to excavate the site, install the liner and fill the pool. An above ground pool helps you to save thousands of dollars in installation costs.

If the pool is not installed correctly, it can easily be fixed. Making a repair or renovation to an inground pool is not as easy. An advantage of an above ground pool is that it is portable and can be dragged to any location. From a backyard patio to a rooftop, this pool can be installed anywhere and provide a wide range of scenic views for you and your guests.

Fast to Install
An above ground pool is ideal when you're planning a party or temporary event in the yard. A professional makes an installation that same day and is able to work on short notice. After the event, it's even faster and easier to dismantle the pool.

A pool that is located above ground is equally as beneficial as one that's located below ground. An inground pool is more complicated to install, may interfere with underground lines and needs to be cleaned regularly. This summer, the easier and more convenient choice is to settle with the above ground construction.
