When is the best time to begin a new pool construction project?

A swimming pool can provide both exercise and entertainment. Building a pool is an excellent addition to your home and provides many uses, from hosting parties to a simple area to relax after a long day at work or school. Once you’re ready with the right pool plans, energy-saving, and low maintenance features, and an open spot in your yard, you can begin to imagine the actual design of your swimming pool.

You need to consider the best time of year for the actual construction and use of your brand new swimming pool. Though the planning phase may be a bit time consuming, once the project is complete, you’ll have a wonderful new addition to your home that your family and friends can enjoy for years to come!
Here are a few factors to consider for when you should begin planning for and designing your own custom swimming pool:


Hurricane season is a major factor for any home-addition projects in Florida, especially for coastal communities. While hurricane season generally runs from June 1st to November 30th, you’ll want to pay attention to peak season from mid-August to late October. Hurricanes don’t have to touch down in your home town to bring strong winds and flooding, so be sure to be aware of the weather during the project.


After the hurricane season has passed, you should have stable weather to build a swimming pool during winter. An advantage to this season is that you may find it easier to get on the schedule with a builder and may find a shorter line for obtaining the necessary permits.
The construction of a new swimming pool can take a few months to complete. This is great for your project, as the project will be completed just in time for the summer season. This means you’ll have your new swimming pool ready right then the sun shines brightest and the temperature rises to provide optimum swimming conditions!


Often considered a prime time to build a swimming pool, a spring build has its benefits. Once completed, you should be able to jump right in and enjoy the water during the summer season, similar to building a pool in the winter.

Design and Plan First

Doing your research and choosing your pool dimensions and features may not be the same thing as finalizing your plans. Even if you know exactly what you want, you’ll need to work with your pool contractor and builder to nail down those details. The exact dimensions you want may not work on your property, or the filtration system you desire might work better on another size pool. This is why it’s important to work with a professional pool builder in order to understand what and how to design your pool for the best results!

There are multiple steps involved in any kind of pool construction.

Choosing to build a swimming pool requires careful planning before the construction ever begins. If you want your pool ready before a change in the weather, or open in time for a special event — start your clock from the day you talk to your local pool builder and begin at least 8 weeks ahead of your goal date.

Building a pool is an investment that you will enjoy. There are experts in the field ready to help you navigate this process. Choose the type of pool and seasonal schedule that fits you best.
