HBW Report: Florida Swimming Pool Construction – June 2018

HBW reviews the latest permitting data for swimming pool construction during the month of June 2018.

Last month, approximately 1,790 new swimming pool permits with a total construction value of $74.5M were added to the HBW database for Florida; this reflects an 8% month-over-month increase in new pool construction activity.  We reviewed the permitting data for five major regions in the Sunshine State (Orlando, Tampa, Jacksonville, Southeast, Southwest), and while the Southwest (438 permits) had the greatest number of pool starts, Jacksonville led the state for average value of construction (average value: $45,167).

Here’s a closer look at new pool construction activity in Florida for the month of June 2018:

New pool construction activity was highest in the southwestern region of Florida.  Last month, the area had 438 pool starts with a total construction value of nearly $19M.  The average value of new construction was on the higher end for the state coming in at $43,220, and the county with the highest volume of pool starts was Lee (133 permits).

Orlando

Last month, Orlando experienced close to a 25% month-over-month increase in new pool construction, resulting in more than 400 pool starts with a total value of nearly $16M.  The average value of construction was on the lower end of the spectrum at $39,680, and the highest concentration of new pool construction could be found in the counties of Osceola (122 permits), Orange (104 permits) and Brevard (102 permits).
