Pool-at-night-with-firepit-300x199When someone is thinking of putting a pool in their backyard, the 1st question that comes up is “How much does a pool cost?”  Inground swimming pools start at around $35,000.00, but there are several factors to consider when thinking of building a swimming pool.
  1. The materials used:  There are many different material choices such as the type of finish (plaster, pebble, etc…) that can determine the price of your pool.
  2. The Shape of the pool – believe it or not, a geometric pool design (think rectangular shaped) can cost more than a Free form shaped pool (think kidney shaped) as it is actually larger and can use more materials and labor.
  3. Added water features – adding a spa combination, sheer descent, gushers, fire features, etc… are wonderful additions, but will change the overall price of your pool.
