How Much Does It Cost to Build a Pool in Maryland?
Since we’re approaching the end of winter, you may already be picturing yourself laying by the pool. If you want to make that dream a reality, first you need to research what it takes to build a pool in Maryland. Not to douse your hopes, but to budget for them properly! To get you started, we’ve put together some facts and figures for you.
For an Above Ground Pool
Obviously, this is the budget-friendlier option. Depending on the options you choose and how much effort you’re willing to put into the process, it could be as little as $1,500 to have your pool up and running. Or as much at $15,000. It all starts with the model you choose.
Round pools tend to be less expensive than either their oval or rectangular counterparts. Not only do they require less material to make, but you also need a smaller level area—if you have to pay for that service, too. So, try to plan where you’d like to put it and think realistically about how long you want it to last.
If you’re okay with just trying it out, you can always purchase a cheaper metal model from a major manufacturer. There are many available for less than $1,000. However, keep in mind that you’ll also have to pay another $1,000 to $3,000 to complete the installation (between the delivery, water, and supplies). Plus, it may only last for a season.
Sturdier options will cost a little more upfront, but in the long run, you’ll save on replacement costs. Look for models that are made of more resin than metal. Or options that come with their own decks. These could easily push you toward that $10,000 mark, but they’d also get you closer to the pool of your dream! Right here in Maryland.
For an Inground Pool
Now, you’re probably expecting to see some higher figures here. To that end, we won’t disappoint. Since an inground pool deals with many more decisions, we’ll simply have to offer a wider range to include them all. Reasonably, you could expect to spend anywhere between $20,000 and $100,000 to see this project complete.
Readying your landscape alone could cost several thousand dollars, especially if you have rocky or otherwise uneven terrain. But your materials matter too. You’ll often find that vinyl liners will help to lower your budget. You may just face additional repair and replacement costs down the line. Fiberglass is the next option up, but that could still cost upwards of $50,000.
Concrete inground pools are typically the most expensive—as well as the most durable. But you’re not just paying for the lining itself. There are many other aspects of the project to consider. Such as what will go around it. Do you want to have a patio installed as the pool deck? Or maybe an actual deck that provides some elevation? Plus, you’ll need to have a security fence installed.
Whether or not you have children, your homeowner’s insurance may require you to include this safety feature. For liability’s sake. Although we can certainly handle this part of the project for you, we’d really need to work with you individually to determine a quote. We’re happy to get you any information you need. Well before you start contemplating those upgrades like heaters, speakers, water features, and/or lights that can add to the budget even more.
