6 Reasons Why Winter Is the Best Time for Pool Renovations

All pools need to undergo renovations from time to time. Even when you put in the effort to properly maintain your pool, you’ll eventually find that one or more of the following items will need to be addressed:

  • Pool equipment such as circulation pumps, filters or heaters may wear out and need to be replaced
  • The structural components of your pool, such as the decks, ladders, diving boards and walls may deteriorate over time and need renovation
  • The size or design of the pool no longer meets your needs
  • You’re unhappy with the aesthetics of your pool and would like to refresh its appearance

When you need to complete these pool renovations, the time of year you choose for the project matters. There are many reasons why winter is the ideal time to remodel your pool.

More Convenient Scheduling

Winter is offseason for pool remodelers. They have a lot more availability during this time of year. Once spring arrives, you’ll be competing with all the other pool owners trying to schedule a renovation job before summer. Once summer arrives, contractors will have a full schedule from routine pool maintenance appointments.

By planning ahead and having your pool renovation performed in the winter, you’ll be able to ensure the work is completed at a time that accommodates your busy schedule.

Access to the Best Pool Remodelers

The best pool renovation companies are usually booked solid during the spring and summer months. By waiting until the warm weather arrives, you may find that you’re on a long waiting list if you want to work with the best contractors. When you schedule your renovation for the winter, the top companies will have more time to fit you in.

Lower Prices

The time of year you choose for pool renovations can impact the cost of the job. Due to the increased demand during spring and summer, many contractors will charge higher rates. When you book your pool remodeling for winter, you may be able to take advantage of special discounted rates offered to increase business during the down season.

Your Pool will Be Ready in Time for Spring

The warm spring weather in Atlanta means that you get to enjoy a longer pool season than is possible in colder climates. If you want your pool to be ready to go when the weather warms up, you’ll need to start your remodeling project as early as possible during the offseason. Pool renovation can often take longer to complete than you anticipate. Starting in winter gives you flexibility in the event that an unexpected issue or delay occurs.

If you wait until spring or summer to start your renovations, you’re going to lose out on some of your pool season. On a hot, sunny day, you want to be enjoying a nice swim, not staring at an unusable pool being rebuilt.

Eliminate Replacement Water Issues

Most in-ground residential pools require about 18,000-20,000 gallons of water to fill after remodeling. The cost of water is often lowest during the winter when conservation isn’t as much of an issue. In addition, you’ll experience less evaporation loss when you fill your pool during the winter.

Reduces Indoor Noise and Dust Pollution

As with any remodeling project, pool renovations will be noisy and result in a considerable amount of dust circulating throughout your property. You’ll need to keep your doors and windows shut to prevent this noise and dust pollution from impacting your day-to-day life. Since doors and windows are typically closed during the winter, your renovations are less likely to impact your indoor comfort.
