Do you want to make your life bigger and better while living in Austin? We have an excellent idea for you. How about building a new custom inground pool in your backyard? Perhaps you may have already considered it, or maybe now we can convince you.
So, your first question will most likely be, “how much does it cost to build a pool?” Unfortunately, many factors will come into play. Below, we will touch upon a few.
How Much Does It Cost To Build A Pool?
No two backyards are the same. Every pool will come with its own unique cost. The total expense will be based on the location, size, type, and shape of the pool, along with the materials used, added features and pool equipment chosen.
A recent survey done with top real estate agents nationwide found that the average cost to build a low-end in-ground pool is between 40,000 to $50,000. A mid-range pool can range between $75,000 to $100,000, and a luxurious upscale pool is generally $150,000 and above.
Factors That will Determine Cost
The size of the pool will have a significant impact on the cost. Custom inground pools can be built at any size to accommodate the space. Of course, the bigger the pool, the more expensive it is.
Lifestyle, Shape and Style
Once the area is assessed, and an approximate size can be determined, it’s time to consider your lifestyle. Will the pool be used for fun, relaxation, or physical fitness?
Now let’s talk about shape and style. If you are a physical fitness guru, a long narrow rectangular pool will work.
Typically, if you want to achieve a traditional or modern look, a geometric shape pool is best.
When a home decor lends toward tropical and fun, then a freeform pool is perfect. Freeform pools can be more costly.
So what about an upscale pool? Then, you may want to consider a vanishing edge pool where one end disappears into the horizon. This type of pool is stunning.
With so many types and styles of materials on the market today, options are limitless. The types of plaster, tiles, and coping used for the pool will come at a different cost.
Features can be minimal to extravagant, from simple bubblers and fountains to pool spas with spillways, rock waterfalls and more. Fire can be added to the fountains, and impressive lighting can be placed with the waterfalls. The more you do, the more the cost will go up.
Patio Decking and Landscape
Once the pool is built with all of the features you want, it’s time to create the decking and landscaping. Decking comes in a wide variety of types, shapes, styles, and landscaping, well that can be as beautiful as ever.
