An in-ground swimming pool can be a luxurious addition to any property in Shiloh, 17404. If you're considering having a pool installed you should consider all the expenses that can occur with pool projects before taking the plunge in a pool project. In this document we have taken a cost averaging viewpoint to give you an idea of the financial requirements involved with a pool installation project. The total cost of a in-ground swimming pool can vary from region to region and each installer will have different expenses. This post is to be used as a generic guide for understanding the expenses involved with a pool project. 

Let’s take a look at the costs of installation types of in-ground swimming pools such as vinyl, concrete and fiberglass pools. This will help us with a better understanding of what’s the best fit for your project and needs.

Labor Costs Associated With a Pool 

It’s important to explain; some home owners prefer the “self-installation” DIY project where the swimming pool is handed to them for project install. If that’s a route you wish to take your project, please don't pay attention this section as it doesn’t pertain to you or your total pool project expenses.

For others who need professional assistance (recommended), it’s easier to start with the basic labor expenses before diving into specific pool manufacturers.

For the most part, the labor expenses are going to be in the $35-50 hourly rate. Please note, that these fees are going to vary based on the installer, and the more prestigious builders that carry the best brands can be as high as $70 per hour or more before materials are included.

Be sure to ask about their hourly rate before starting a project with a contractor. It can help expedite the project and your knowledge of what’s being charged to you versus what you're getting.

Getting a Pool Quote 

To have a better feel for how much each pool install costs, you want to get a complete understanding of the general requirements of each project part of the total pool project.

Remember, no two swimming pool projects will be exact, and most have to take into account the space to work with and the total requirements of the pool project. So, what are some of the variables that need to be known for a in-ground pool install?

Variables Include:

1) Available space dimensions and layout.

2) In-ground pool dimensions.

3) Materials required for the project.

4) Safety precautions – hand railings, proper markings, pool covers, etc.

5) Kidney, oval, free-form, rectangle shapes, etc.

6) Depth of swimming pool – deep, shallow and mid pool height levels.

7) Diving boards, jumping rocks, swim jets and other pool add-ons.

8) Fencing requirements to help protect your livingspace and meet safety requirements.

9) Lighting for security, mood and safety. 

10) Contractors – how many will be in my yard and how does this labor affect the expense.

When considering these variables, and based on what a property owner requires from the swimming pool installation process, will ultimately determine the total bill. The home owner should always plan for spending more than planned for to be on the safe side. Always sit down and talk with a contractor to determine how much it’s going to hurt the wallet and try to determine any unforeseen issues.

If not, the quote could end up being far greater than anticipated due to the additional needs you may have. These costs are always going to play a major role on cost once the pool has been wrapped up. 

Fiberglass Pools

Now, that we have talked about the variables that should be considered, let’s talk about the specific types of pools available on the market.

With fiberglass swimming pools, you should consider  a cost of roughly $15,000-$35,000 (based on size).

Vinyl Liner Pools

The next type of swimming pool would be the vinyl liner pool. These are dramatic pools that can provide years of enjoyment when installed the right way by pool experts. 

The fees associated with a vinyl liner in-ground pool are going to settle in the area of $10,000-$30,000.Vinyl liner pools can be a great choice for home owners wanting something creative.

Custom Concrete Pools

The last option one will have is a concrete in-ground swimming pool, and this is the most expensive type of all of them. This is going to end up costing near $15,000-$40,000 or more... 

With concrete swimming pools it’s important to keep in mind they can be customized to your heart’s content as the contractor can construct them from the ground up. You will have complete control over what can be done with your custom swimming pool.

To reflect, there are three types of pools and the costs for those pool types can differ in many ways. If you're still unsure about which pool type to purchase one of our dealers can explain the difference between the pool types. All three swimming pool types have their pros and cons, so it's best to look at these benefits along with your budget to determine what is best for you in Shiloh, 17404.
