When is the Best Time to Build a Pool?

The right time to build pool

The best time of year to build a pool in Northern Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley is typically during the spring and fall months. The weather during these seasons is prime for building a new pool in your yard, allowing for a smooth installation process.

Spring can be a great time to start building a pool because the ground is still relatively soft and easy to excavate. The cooler spring temperatures are more conducive to outdoor labor than the hot and humid summer months. With less heat to contend with, your pool builders can potentially work longer hours without getting overheated, resulting in a faster installation process.

Another advantage of building a pool in the spring is that it allows for plenty of time to complete the project before the summer season and warm weather hit. This means that you’ll be able to enjoy your new pool throughout the summer, which is the prime time for swimming and enjoying other outdoor activities like lounging by your pool.

Fall is also a great time to build your new pool in Northern Virginia. The cooler temperatures and lower humidity make for a comfortable for the contractor. The cooler air temperatures also make it easier to lay concrete and plaster. Also, many pool builders have a lighter workload during the fall months, which means they may be able to complete your next summer. This means that you can enjoy your pool during the warm months and get the most value out of your investment.

It’s important to realize that building a pool in Northern Virginia during the winter months is not necessarily recommended. Cold temperatures and snowfall can make construction difficult and delay the completion timeline. Some materials, such as concrete, may not set properly in very cold weather, however, there are very mild winters or times during the winter when your pool installation can be started or done. The experts at Alpha Pools USA can help determine the best time to get your pool started and work with you to ensure it is done properly and that you are happy for years to come.
