Custom Spas: Types and Installation

It may not sound so great right now, but the cooler months are rapidly approaching, and there is nothing quite like a relaxing soak in a custom spa. A spa is a large exterior bathtub that heats water and provides a massage through high-powered jets or air injectors.

Custom spas are typically installed outside, allowing you to enjoy their warmth while simultaneously experiencing the great outdoors. Spas are long-known to be a therapeutic and relaxing experience; what greater luxury than to have one in your own home?

Spa Make-Up

The linings of spas are manufactured out of stainless steel, copper, vinyl, acrylic, and thermal plastics. The exterior of the shell can be wood, metal, or stone. The metals and acrylics tend to hold-up better than the plastics, and all finishes should be protected against sun-exposure.

Quality Manufacturers

The following are just some spa manufacturers known for their products and quality.

Price and Installation

Spas range in price from uninstalled basic models around $4,000-$20,000+. Prices increase dramatically based upon location, installation specifics, and other case-by-case factors.

There are some beautiful ways to install a spa. You can have it free-standing on a deck or patio, or insert it into the ground surrounded by custom rock-work or decking. The purpose of a spa is to provide relaxing comfort, and part of setting the atmosphere is creating the accompanying landscaping. Incorporate lush greenery, water features, patio, decking, pavers, or tiles into your theme to create the ultimate escape right in your own backyard.
