Custom-built Inground Swimming Pool Contractor Deals With the Challenges of Covid 19’s Impact on Swimming Pool Construction and Delivery Dates.

The Covid Pandemic has altered our lives in many ways. One significant outcome; We’re spending more time at home working but also seeking home based leisure activities. So while vacationing is on hold, cocooning is very much in.

It is no wonder then that people are investing heavily in their home environments, including home improvements like remodeling and landscaping, and outlets for family entertainment. Backyard swimming pools are especially attractive because they offer both safety from viral exposure and a healthy outlet for family fun and exercise.

But the resulting high demand on the entire construction industry is outstripping supply, materials and labor. This is particularly true of the swimming pool industry. Ron Coker Jr., president and owner of Artistic Pools, states “Our lead time to start constructing a new custom pool is five to six months. Artistic Pool’s focus on quality and craftsmanship means we can’t cut corners to expedite delivery dates”. Turnaround time is also dependent upon the municipality and the homeowner’s receipt of building permits.

Artistic Pools, Inc. is a third generation family owned business established in 1957. The company is known for its innovative pool designs, quality materials and craftsmanship. Artistic Pools has been recognized for numerous awards including the Consumers’ Choice Award for Business Excellence.

2020 has been the most successful year in the company’s history and apparently, 2021 is shaping up to repeat the trend. “Our quality pools can provide the enjoyment and stress release needed in these trying times”, adds Ron Coker.
