A Look at How Different Seasons Affect Ottawa Inground Pool Installations

As with most home renovation projects, the earlier you start inground pool construction, the sooner you can relax and enjoy your pool.

This could be as early as fall in preparation for the next pool season, or as early as spring so you can enjoy your pool for the upcoming summer.

There is no wrong time to start planning for your inground pool installation. The best time for inground pool construction is when you’re ready, both financially and scheduling wise. You don’t have to rush. Take your time to save enough money and plan your ideal backyard landscape.

And once you’re ready, you can start shopping around for expert pool builders to help you make your dream a reality.

As far as Ottawa’s seasons go, each season has its own benefits and drawbacks for pool construction. So you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons when deciding on the best time for you.

Here’s a look at the pros and cons of building inground pools in Ottawa for each season so you’ll know what to expect when you’re ready to start planning.

Spring

Pro: Your pool will be ready to use come summer.

Con: Since this is the start of the busy pool-building season, pool builders and suppliers are in high demand. They book up fast and won’t have the same off-season deals.

Summer

Pro: If you start pool construction in early summer, you will still have a chance to enjoy your pool while there’s some warm weather left. And if you start contacting pool builders in late summer after the busy season, they will be eager to extend their work season.

Con: Your backyard will be under construction for part of the summer, which could put a damper on your backyard enjoyment.

Fall

Pros: Fall usually sees a drop in costs for materials and installation, and pool builders will have more time in their schedule. You can also start planning your backyard landscape for the upcoming year, and know for certain that your pool will be ready for next summer.

Con: You will likely have to wait until the following pool season to use your new pool.

Winter

Pro: You might be able to negotiate a good deal with pool builders.

Con: The cold weather might make it difficult to build an inground pool in Ottawa, especially if the ground has already frozen.

The more time you put into planning for your pool, the more pleased you will be when the construction is finished. There are a lot of things to consider, including budgeting and scheduling, that go into pool construction.

If you are ready to start building now, then you can enjoy your pool this summer. But if not, don’t worry. Your dream pool won’t be going anywhere if you decide to build it later in the year. Consider the costs and advantages of pool building in different seasons, and start planning for you dream pool.
