Pool Time In Texas

One of the greatest things about living in Dallas-Fort Worth is the ability to enjoy a swimming pool about 8 months out of the year (not warm enough for everyone, of course). North Texas temperatures are usually above 70° from April to October, even our winter months see 70° now and again - think holiday shopping in shorts. 

I love the creativity behind pool and outdoor living designs. The cost to install a basic pool in D/FW usually starts in the low to mid $50's. Think of building a pool kind of like building a home, you get the basics for a base price, but then, the price goes up as you add on features and upgrade finishes. You may never get the full value of your pool when you sell your home, but you build it because YOU WANT IT. You build it for what it means to you, and your family. Enjoy it. And then hire us to help you get as much return on it as possible when you're ready to sell. :)

If you're thinking about buying a home with a pool already built, here's a list of pool homes currently for sale in the Dallas-Fort areaIf you're not in the market for a home, but enjoy looking at pool designs (like I do), then here's a showcase of some awesome pools below. AND I recommend you check out my pool board on Pinterest too for even more water greatness.
