So you've decided to introduce a hot tub to your home? While having a hot tub is appealing, who wouldn't want to lounge in the afternoon in perfectly warm water with spray jets massaging your back? Getting a hot tub entails a considerable investment, not to mention regular maintenance fees.
Before taking that plunge, you'll want to make sure you choose the right hot tub. One with the specific features you're looking for and the correct size and design. If you have the time and resources to maintain it throughout the year, you'll realize it is worth the investment.
In this article, we'll go through the two most common hot tub options homeowners can choose between above-ground and in-ground.
Above-Ground Hot Tubs
Pros of above-ground hot tubs
They are generally cheaper than in-ground hot tubs, costing between $3,000 and $12,000, depending on size and features.
Cons of above-ground hot tubs
In-ground Hot Tubs
Pros of in-ground hot tubs
Cons of in-ground hot tubs
With this comparison, if you are looking for a hot tub option that is temporary, cheap to install and maintain, and easily movable if you decide to relocate, the above-ground option is for you.
However, if you are more particular about the features you want, value aesthetics, and are looking for a more permanent option, go with the in-ground hot tub.
Benefits of Hot Tubs
Hot tubs might not be necessary for every household, but they are a great addition to your home oasis if you can get one.
Here are six reasons why you should have a hot tub in your Woodlands home:
How should I install my hot tub?
While considering your hot tub, you should also consider your contractor when you finally have one installed.
Your contractor must have proper training and relevant experience in similar projects. An experienced contractor can help you choose the correct size and shape for your pool or hot tub and make the two features work seamlessly together. You also need to consider their proximity to your location, whether they can pull all the required permits for you, and whether they know the community standards and regulations for this type of outdoor improvement project. Your ideal contractor should also be able to work with your budget.
