Based on inground pool prices, should you even look at a freeform pool? Absolutely! For the most the part, the cost of freeform pools will be roughly the same as a rectangle pool within $5,000.
With a purchase this big, you are always going to get multiple pool quote from different pool contractors and you will see that the cost of a freeform compared to a rectangle isn’t as much as you thought.
Yes and no.
Free Form pools can take more time to build than a standard rectangle pool, but not much.
Each type of swimming pool brings with it it’s own inherit add-ons, which can increase inground pool prices.
Swimming pool pricing isn’t just the physical pool, it is everything else that goes into it. A simple rectangle pool might have an auto cover on it which will drive the swimming pool pricing higher than a freeform pool with a spill over spa.
Fiberglass pools are great and are the hottest thing in the pool market right now. The cost of fiberglass pool is done a little differently than vinyl liner or concrete pools.
Every square inch of the fiberglass shell is factored into the cost of fiberglass pool. It doesn’t matter if the pool is rectangle or freeform, the cost is based on how many square inches of fiberglass are in that pool.
Remember that the shape of a pool can be rectangle but the dig can be “freeform” in the eyes of some inground pool builders. The pictures below show a vinyl liner pool that is 50′ x 100′ and over 14′ deep for a collegiate diving board. NOT your standard vinyl liner rectangle pool.
