Do you want to create a refreshing oasis, enhance the value of your property, and enjoy endless hours of fun and relaxation? Absolutely! A backyard pool is the perfect addition to any Putnam County home. At Orange County Pools & Spas, we want to make sure you get the right pool for your home, your budget, and your family. When choosing an aquatic oasis for your backyard, here are the factors you need to consider.
Your Available Space
When choosing the right swimming pool, the best place to start is to consider the available space in your backyard. While lot sizes across Putnam County vary widely, at Orange County Pools & Spas we have the right-sized pools to match them all. As a general rule of thumb, you should aim for your pool to take up less than ⅓ of your backyard.
Also, consider the usable space on your property. Think through factors such as power lines and terrain that might impact the pool’s placement and accessibility. One such hurdle for those in Putnam County is waterfront backyards. A good number of homes in the area back up to water. While a pool can certainly still be installed, we recommend an inground pool should be at least 100 feet from the water’s edge.
Rest assured, a standard step in our pool building process is inspecting your property. A member of our design and building team will visit your home to assess possible locations for a pool, identify any hindrances to the building process, and help you decide on the best spot.
The perfect pool type for you can vary greatly depending on your pool needs and personal preference. There is no right or wrong answer! With Orange County Pools & Spas, you can choose from three pool types, each with its own perks.
Inground pools offer durability, design flexibility, and a wide range of customization options. We offer fiberglass, gunite, and vinyl inground pools. While inground pools tend to cost more and require a longer installation time, they provide a luxurious, stunning, and permanent addition to your backyard.
Above-ground pools are more affordable, easier to install, and offer flexibility in terms of relocation. Our Carvin® above-ground pools are durable and beautiful and come in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Combining the benefits of inground and above-ground pools, on-ground pools are partially buried into the ground. They provide a polished look while being more cost-effective, and they are available in lots of design options.
Setting a realistic budget is essential before embarking on any significant home improvement project such as a backyard pool. Consider how much you aim to spend and explore the pool options that align with your financial desires. Remember to account for not only the initial installation cost but also ongoing pool maintenance.
Keep in mind, pool installation costs include not only the pool but also the coping, landscaping, and pool equipment, among other things. At Orange County Pools & Spas, we are committed to being upfront about the costs and pool installation process so you can make an informed decision. If you choose, we offer financing with two trusted financial partners who specialize in home improvement and outdoor living projects. You can apply quickly and easily from our website.
Choosing the right pool for your Putnam County backyard involves careful consideration. By evaluating each of these factors, you can make an informed decision that will bring years of enjoyment and relaxation to you, your family, and your friends.
