Your overall lot size will determine what kind/size of pool is appropriate for you and your family, but in terms of shape, style, etc…It really depends on how you plan to use your pool. If exercise is most important, then perhaps a pool that facilitates swimming laps is appropriate. If you desire a pool that reflects a backyard oasis that is the perfect setting for entertaining, relaxing and overall enjoyment. Our design professionals can then assist you in determining the pool shape and design that works best for you.
The cost of a pool is determined by a number of factors. Inground concrete pools will cost more than fiberglass, vinyl and above ground ones. We build in-ground concrete pools because these have proven to be more durable and allow for a variety of designs and features. The size of the pool, the amount of perimeter decking, slope of your lot (which can require more excavation and foundation support), type of materials and finishes all contribute to the final price. The only responsible way to get a firm estimate is to have us come out and measure your lot and meet with you to assess the type of pool you are wanting.
The time it takes to build your pool is ultimately dependent on the size and complexity of the design, plus any adverse weather delays. Your St.Johns Pool Consultant will be able to give you an accurate estimate of time completion based on your pool design.
