Why Gunite Pools Are the Best Choice to Upgrade Your Outdoor Living Space

Gunite Pools Are the Best Choice for an In-ground Pool Installation

Gunite pools add value for a lifetime within any home for those thinking of installing an inground pool to their outdoor living area, . The superb look and design versatility will be a lasting upgrade to your property.

Gunite pools are extremely durable, stand up to all types of climate and can be style in a variety of free flowing shapes tailored to the landscape’s configuration. This gives a full spectrum of options for a pool design. A gunite pool can be installed anywhere, no matter the terrain.

Gunite is Versatile

A gunite pool can have full curves, square angled corners or a combination of both. A pool can begin at beach entry level and graduate to any depth desired when made with gunite. Most commercial and many residential pools are gunite. This is because gunite pools are built to last.

What is a Gunite Pool?

Gunite is a concrete blend of cement, sand and water that applied through a high-pressure hose to a structure fabricated of rebar. Once dry, gunite becomes a rock hard solid structure with a thickness that adds a tensile strength a fiberglass or vinyl liner pool will never come close to matching.

Adding Style to Match Your Taste

Once the gunite cures, a plaster application made from cement and marble becomes the final waterproof coating. Some opt for a colored quartz aggregate added to the plaster in order to increase durability and aesthetics.

Create contrast – add a pebbled or tiled finish to create a high-end look. Waterfalls, custom stairs, adjoining hot tub or spa added to the gunite pool design can meet the desired look.

Why Gunite?

A gunite pool adds the most value and durability when it comes to in-ground pools. The gunite shell handles all types of conditions due to its ability to contract and expand. No matter the soil changes that occur from season or climate, such as freezing and thawing, a gunite pool is best suited to endure.

The resilience and versatility of a gunite pool makes for a custom pool with free flowing shapes tailored to your backyard a reality.  Whether you are looking to incorporate a trickling spillway, rock waterfall, fountain shelf or elevated spa, a gunite pool makes it easy.

Custom outdoor swimming pools are a terrific way to have staycations throughout the spring and summer, sometimes into the fall months. Whether our clients opt for custom gunite pools, fiberglass pools or vinyl liner pools, they always ask us what added features are best.

While the answer to this question will vary depending on a client’s preferences and needs, we find that laying out all the options help focus on inground pool designs to reflect their vision. Once they get a feel for the custom features that they want, they will need to compare the costs of such features to their budget and prioritize the ones they really want.

With the summer in full swing, parents are facing unique challenges this year. We thought sharing a few features of our inground pool designs that can help keep your kids at home safe, healthy and more importantly, happy!

12 Features to Consider With Your Custom Swimming Pool Installation:

 

1) Pool Slide: A custom pool slide can add a little life to any inground swimming pool and make your custom pool the envy of the neighborhood. There are a wide variety of custom designed pool slides available with different sized flumes that will reflect your style and wishes.

2) Diving Board or Diving Rock: Diving boards can serve as an enjoyable recreational feature to your custom swimming pool provided your pool design is deep enough. If you have energetic pool goers that would enjoy doing somersaults and backflips, this might be a feature you should add to your pool.

3) Hot tub:Hot tubs or spillover spas that are raised above the pool level serves a duel purpose; that of being therapeutic and an added water feature to custom swimming pools.

4) Grotto: Adding a cave or grotto as a place to retreat from the glaring sun or the crowd to peacefully meditate is becoming a very popular water feature in many custom pool designs.

5) Pool Bar: If you’re planning on entertaining an adult audience that appreciate imbibing cocktails while relaxing in a pool, a swim up pool bar might be a nice feature to add to your pool.

6) Fountain: A cascading water fountain adds a peaceful ambience to custom swimming pools that are not only therapeutic but a great aerators that will keep the water cool.

7) Waterfall: Built with Real or Faux Boulders, cascading waterfalls add a naturalistic element to custom swimming pools and one of the most popular water features around. These too are great aerators to keep water temperatures cooler.

8) Rain Curtain: Young and old alike enjoy the cooling curtains of water falling into the pool from a pergola roof or some other overhang.

9) Bubblers: Small jets set in the floor of a shallow end of a custom swimming pool shoot streams of water that gurgle or bubble up to the surface.

10) Deck Jets: Thin arching streams of water shooting from the pool decking into the pool can be illuminated with color changing LED lights to make any night swim a fun event.

11) Mist Curtains: Having a  fog or misting system around the pool can greatly reduce the air temperature making for a much more comfortable pool side nap.

12) Pool House: Want to keep everyone comfortable and close to all the amenities? Consider a pool house with changing and bathroom, refrigerator full of everyone’s favorite beverages and maybe even a comfortable sitting area to shelter from inclement weather.

Make summer at home this year full of fond memories of how your family chose to focus on what really matters in life, quality time with those you love in your very own custom swimming pool.
