Tips for Buying Your Pool Enclosure

Buy the Pool Enclosure that’s Right for Your Atlanta Home

dc-pool-enclosure-pic-smThere are a lot of reasons to invest in a pool enclosure if you’re living in the Atlanta area. You may like the idea of saving on maintenance costs, or maybe you want a somewhat safer pool area for the kids. Or perhaps you’re an avid swimmer, and you just want to be able to swim year round. Whatever your reasons, building a pool enclosure can definitely be a worthy investment for your Atlanta home.

But before you plunge right in, you should consider taking some time to think about what your specific needs are & why you want a pool enclosure. Doing this will help make your decisions easier and get you the right type of enclosure for your needs.

Here are some tips to think about when considering enclosing your pool:

1. Analyze Your Pool Enclosure Needs

Though you may feel that a pool looks it’s best in an open environment, the reality about owning a pool is it’s more about using it. Oftentimes with an open pool area, you’re reliant on cooperating weather and warm sunny days. And though living in Atlanta does provide a decent year-round climate, we do still have our share of cold and wet days.

Cleaning a pool can also be a hassle. Taking time to clean the pool each time you want to use it can definitely make having a pool less enjoyable. You may find yourself not getting as much use out of it, simply because the cleaning element adds on so much extra time.

The reasons for building a pool enclosure will likely vary from person to person, but in the end, what it should always equate to is giving you more time to enjoy your pool.

Once you’ve made a list of what’s most important to you, you’ll then be able to figure out which elements of a pool enclosure you’re willing to compromise on and which you’re not.

2. Design and Aesthetics for Your Atlanta Pool Enclosure

Depending on your budget and your needs, there are some different options available for your pool enclosure.

Those who are on a budget and aren’t necessarily wanting to swim year-round in all types of weather, but who still want to cut down on their cleaning and maintenance and create a safer area for their kids may want to consider a screened enclosure for their pool.

Screen enclosures also have the benefits of keeping bugs out and blocking out some of the sun’s harmful rays. And though they may not be quite as attractive as glass enclosures, they still give some of the same benefits.

Glass enclosures are particularly useful for those who want to swim year-round or heat their pool area. They can also make quite a stunning statement and add an extra dose of beauty to your home. If attached to your home, a glass enclosure can also extend the useable living area of your home, giving you more space for entertaining year-round.

If keeping heating costs low is an important factor, you may want to consider a low profile enclosure, which gives less space between the pool and the enclosure roof.

3. Stay In Budget

When considering any new project or addition to your home, it’s always important to consider your budget. Now with the different materials available, you may be surprised by the reasonable costs behind building an enclosure for your pool. And there are often financing options available to help with your pool enclosure purchase. But as with any purchase, you don’t want to lock yourself into something you can’t afford. So be realistic about your budget, and with your list of needs, you can likely figure out where you can cut back a bit if need be.
