Besides knowing the total pool construction costs, pool owners always want to know the costs of every step involved in building a pool. The majority of homeowners prefer getting a detailed invoice. Thus, pool builders should indicate excavation, installation, among other costs on the quote.
Occasionally, the cost for every process of building a pool varies depending on different factors. For instance, if you have a complex landscape, pool contractors will charge you more for excavation. Moreover, it depends on the pool owners’ property size and type of pool. So, it is possible for a larger pool can be cheaper than smaller pools. In this article, we look at the different cost estimates involved in pool construction.
What are the costs of landscaping a pool? #
Typically, pool contractors charge approximately 3,000 to 5,000 dollars for landscaping. Note that these costs apply for green landscapes that have never gotten tampered with. So, on average, excavation is likely to cost $4 -$12 for one square foot. The price can range depending on the obstacles that bypass the area. Moreover, landscaping costs depend on your pool contracting company. Some of the types of landscaping designs include contemporary, desert, and equatorial layouts. Pool contractors charge differently for the various layouts. Landscaping charges also vary based on the water features you’d like to incorporate.
Pool installation costs #
Majority of pool builders’ base installation costs on the type of pool. Usually, a fiberglass pool installation will cost an average of $18,000 to $65,000. Concrete pool installation costs range from $29,000 to $60,000. Vinyl pools have the least installation costs of a maximum of about $45,000. So, fiberglass and concrete pools have the highest installation costs. This price differs based on your pool size, layout, and builder. Top-notch pool building firms tend to charge higher installation costs. Furthermore, pool installation is the most expensive part of building a pool.
What are the costs of decking a pool? #
The decking process will mostly cost an average of $3,000 to $24,000. The price varies based on the size of the pool, deck material, and the size of the area that needs decking. Some of the materials used for decking are composite wood and raw wood. The higher the durability of the material used, the higher the decking costs.
In summary #
Ultimately there are different procedures involved in pool construction. Each of them has their costs depending on the labor and materials used. Among all procedures involved in pool construction, installation involves the most work. But the installation is the most expensive part of building a pool.
