How Much Does an Inground Pool Cost?

One of the first questions that people often have when speaking with a swimming pool contractor is, “How much is this going to cost me?” If you’ve never owned a pool before, you probably don’t have a clue. There are several factors that will determine the inground pool cost, which will ultimately and primarily be determined by you.

Although pool prices will vary from region to region in the country, a typical base pool price starts around $25,000 – $38,000 in most areas. This would cover a freeform, geometric, or classic-style pool with no spa attached. If you live in an area that has hard, rocky, or sloping terrain, you may incur some extra excavation or engineering costs, but as a rule, most of the pools that we build are in relatively flat lots.

When determining inground pool cost, look at the features.  A swimming pool like this one below, with no spa, can be a lot more affordable than you think.

Additional expenses are also determined by how many bells and whistles you want on your pool. Since all our pools are custom designed, there are a number of features that you can add to make your pool exactly how you dreamed it would be. Waterfalls and grottos, spa additions, colored lighting, energy-efficient equipment, automation, travertine coping, and decking are very common upgrades that will increase the price of your pool but are well worth it. A pool is a big investment, not only in money and the value of your home but in your family’s quality of life.

Of course, the sky is the limit with pools – the pricing of a swimming pool like the one below is determined by all of the extra features.

Another thing to consider is what type of inground swimming pool you’ll be building. Gunite, fiberglass, and vinyl pools vary in price significantly. Each style has its own benefits, and the type of pool you’ll be building depends largely on where you live.
