The Cost of Installing an In-Ground Swimming Pool – Minneapolis St. Paul, MN
When you’re considering putting in a swimming pool at your property, cost is always a consideration. It’s a major home improvement project. The cost is different for each pool, of course, but a new in-ground pool is similar in price to other home improvement projects, like adding a room or a major remodeling job. Like those other projects, your pool will add value to your property and improve your quality of life. It is also a long-term investment, so consider its cost divided by its lifetime to get a true idea of its value.
Our Minnesota pool design and construction company can build a complete, ready-to-use vinyl in-ground pool at your Twin Cities home for under $37,000. That’s the price of a nice car or a room addition. We can make the design to fit every home and budget. Here are some of the factors that go into the cost:
- Materials – Vinyl in-ground pools are less expensive to build than concrete pools. Which type you choose is a major factor in the total price. As a leading pool contractor in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, we build highly affordable vinyl pools, designed to withstand the harsh Minnesota winter weather.
- Size – The size is a very important factor. A larger excavation, more materials, and additional plumbing and larger-capacity supporting equipment all add to the cost as the size goes up.
- Options – The options, such as covers, automatic vacuums, decking, water slides, lighting, salt water cleaner and other optional equipment all add to the total price.
- Cost Over Time – The true cost of a pool is best measured over its lifetime. Dividing it by the number of years it will be part of your home is the only way to accurately calculate the price. Today’s swimming pools have a very long lifetime, making the cost per year surprisingly low. A pool is less expensive, in most cases, than an annual trip to a resort destination with your family, and far cheaper than owning and maintaining a vacation home, but gives you the opportunity to vacation right in your backyard any time.
When thinking about putting in a swimming pool for your home, keep in mind the many benefits of ownership. How much do you value healthful exercise and how much can you save on expensive health club fees? What is the value of having your family, especially your children, close to home and enjoying the active social life that a swimming pool encourages? How much can you save on expensive vacation trips by relaxing in your backyard? When you include all of the factors, having your own swimming pool is a smart worthy investment.
Comparing the Bid and Choosing the Contractor
Many contractors will compete for your business. That can lead to deceptive pricing by some unethical Minnesota pool builders, who will quote a low initial price to make a sale. That price, however, may not include everything you need to have a complete, ready-to-use swimming pool with all the necessary equipment. It’s very important to compare pricing for a complete swimming pool, fully equipped for your recreation and designed to meet the high construction standards required by Minnesota cold temperatures. At Atlantis Pool and Spa, we’re always competitive in price with any other builders, but we never use deceptive pricing or hidden fees to make a sale.
