How Much to Install a Pool?
Building the pool of your dreams is probably the most expensive landscaping venture, with the average cost of a pool being between $35,000 and $65,000. Our pool building experts will help you get the most that a custom pool Boise has to offer. The price of your pool is directly affected by the size, depth, and features you want to add.
Materials Attributing to Cost
The cost of your custom pool will be influenced by the materials used. There are three materials used to make a pool: concrete, fiberglass, and vinyl. You will find most of the cost difference of custom pools lies in the pool maintenance.
Concrete: Typically used with lager pools, the cost of a concrete pool usually ranges from $30,000 to $50,000 starting off. The larger the pool the more mechanics that need to go into it, which ups the charge. While concrete is a popular choice, this material is known for algae build-up which affects the pH balance of your pool.
Fiberglass: A fiberglass pool is an exceptionally economic choice when it comes to custom pools Boise offers. These range from $20,000 to around $35,000 starting off. With the easiest maintenance of the three choices, you’ll save in the beginning and in the end by choosing a fiberglass swimming pool.
Vinyl: A vinyl pool is easy to clean and made custom. The starting range for a vinyl swimming pool installation begins at $20,000 going up to $40,000 on average.
Size and Location
The size is obviously a major factor in the cost of your swimming pool. As a general rule the cost figure ranges about $50 to $90 per square footage. Location will play a role as well, how far will the crew have to drive to get to your home? What sort of terrain are we working with? These are all players in the game of cost.
