A review and report on the latest swimming pool construction in Texas for the month of May.
With the summer temperatures rising, so do the new swimming pool permits and leads with HBW. In May, more than 800 new swimming pool permits were added to the HBW database for the Lone Star State. Out of the four major metropolitan areas reviewed (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio), Dallas is experiencing the most new swimming pool construction. More than half (55%) of all activity took place in the Dallas area as there were close to 450 pool starts and $20M in total construction value for the month. The bulk of Dallas pool construction took place in Collin, Tarrant and Dallas counties, all making the top five counties list for the month.
And while Dallas had the greatest number of total new permits, it ranked lowest for average value of construction at just over $44k. On the other end of the spectrum, pool value was at a high in Austin (average value: $61,850), especially in Travis County where the average value of new pools started exceeded $71k. The average value of pool construction was also on the higher end in Houston. With 232 permits and an average value just over $60k, Houston ranked #2 for both average value and total pool starts in May. More than half of all new pool construction in the Houston area took place in Harris County, where there were 131 pool starts and close to $9M in new construction for the one-month period.
