Covid-19 pandemic is the right time to build a pool, and here’s why!

Covid-19 pandemic is right to build a pool

Gone are the days when vacationing equaled to looking for the most beautiful destinations and taking exciting trips to those places; this is due to the new normal caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Even family dynamics around the home have been affected by the novel virus.

At present day, traveling isn’t longer an option, whether it is to avoid the spreading of the virus among family members or because of restrictions. This situation allows us to think of new ways to have fun at home, and what’s better than building a pool in the backyard where we can enjoy sunbathing and family barbecues?

Dream Home Builders and Remodelers is a company specialized in the construction field with the best options to help you carry out your project in real-time.


These are some of the reasons why building your pool during the Covid-19 pandemic is a great idea


  • A trend that makes your family happy: there has been a considerable rise in pool construction during this pandemic in comparison to 2019, which hasn’t happened by chance, but instead it is a response to the new normal. As an example, Poolcorp, an international distributor of swimming pool supplies, parts, and outdoor living products, has hit a new intraday all-time high this week and is up over 54% this year.

We’re staying at home for long days trying to have fun and be joyful with our families.

  • A pool in your patio increases the value of your property: according to real estate experts, it can go up to $20,000 mainly caused by clients constantly moving from small to larger houses, leaving the pool investment recovery unfinished.

Now imagine how much a pool could increase the value of your dream house and crystalize the investment recovery made on it in the long run.

  • A swimming pool is a clean space for the family: both bromine and chlorine, which are used to disinfect and maintain swimming pools, should keep the coronavirus at bay, therefore, this is another reason to choose to build a swimming pool in the backyard and spend lots of quality time with family and friends.
  • Low-interest rates give greater access to pool building: refinancing a loan at these times when interest rates are low making it affordable for many to complete the project of building their own pool for the enjoyment of the family while at the same time complying with stay-at-home protocols.

For instance, those working in outdoor spaces have seen the biggest increase in demand, with searches for pool and spa professionals three times what they were a year ago.


Fulfill your dream of having a family pool in your backyard


It is in moments like this when we learn how to appreciate our health, our family, and the time we spend together. We realize that we do not necessarily need to go on a trip to be happy and share excellent moments, but rather, invest in our house to make it more comfortable and enjoyable.

Times are changing. A good case in point comes from Houzz, an online home remodeling platform, which has reported a 58% annual increase in the project leads for home professionals in June.

And what better than a beautiful pool to share the best moments and treasure the best memories?
