Which is better?
Inground pools are a permanent home improvement to your property. They add aesthetic appeal and value to your home. Should it ever come time to sell your home, inground pools are generally appealing to potential buyers.
These pools can range from small rectangle designs with depths of 3-to-5 feet to diving pools and lap pools. When thinking about your future pool, consider what you want to get out of your pool and how you want to enjoy it. If you have a more competitive spirit, a small pool with sports equipment would work for you. If you enjoy swimming laps, a rectangular design would be perfect. An “L” shape design allows you to swim laps and accommodate water sports. If the traditional rectangular shape isn’t your scene, perhaps a custom freeform pool is more appropriate for you.
Thinking about usage and then designing with those needs in mind is the key to building a pool that your entire family will be happy with for years to come.
A concrete pool is more expensive than a vinyl pool for the same shape and size with the same features. Concrete pools are constructed in stages, including pool layout and excavation, steel installation, plumbing installation, equipment set, gunite or shotcrete application, tile and coping installation, and interior finish installation. Concrete pools take significantly more time to build; generally, 6 to 16 weeks.
