We talked recently about prepping your pool for closing, but what if you’ve been thinking about renovating your pool? Should you go through with your closing and wait until next year? No way! There are many advantages to getting your pool renovated during the winter. If you’re not sure, let’s look a little closer at what you could be gaining by checking this project off your list in the “off-season.”
Because most people don’t even entertain the idea of renovating in the winter, the prices are lower. It’s basic economics of supply and demand, but it works in your favor here, big time. Demand goes down, so do prices. You can save big if you shop around this time of year.
Have Your Pool Ready by Spring
Thanks to the lack of demand, there is much more flexibility with scheduling your pool renovation in the winter. With shorter project timelines and faster turnaround, you can rest assured that your pool will be ready (and like new!) when spring rolls around and you’re ready to dive back in.
Okay, so, technically it’s not actually less mess. But because you’re scheduling it during the winter, when you’re less likely to want to be outside around it while the construction crews are working on your renovation, it will feel less messy. Dealing with less dust and debris in your life is just another plus to add to the list of reasons why renovating your pool in the winter is a great idea.
Not better pool weather, per se, but much better weather for the crews working on your project. Without the blistering heat and relentless sun of summer and early fall, you’ll have much happier workers able to work longer without breaks (contributing to those shortened project timelines). Plus, since the weather never really gets all that wintry in Atlanta, you don’t have to worry too much about it getting too chilly out there for them.
Before you write off your renovation project for another year, consider a winter renovation. Look around, ask for prices, ask for timing. You might just be surprised at what you find.
