Carolina Pool Consultants Compares The Differences Between Concrete Swimming Pools and The Competition
August 3, 2020
Homeowners in Denver NC that are looking for a new custom swimming pool for their backyard have likely heard of or come across concrete pools, fiberglass pools, and vinyl liner pools. With so much information on the web about which pool type is the best, it can be overwhelming for homeowners who simply want to have a beautiful relaxing space in their backyard that is durable, long lasting and aesthetically pleasing. Carolina Pool Consultants is the trusted concrete swimming pool installer in Denver NC and we will help explain the differences between these 3 people types.
Let’s start with concrete pools. Concrete is king because it is durable and long lasting. Moreover, concrete allows for nearly unlimited design options and features for your new pool. Typically the saying goes “if you can think it – we can build it”. This is because concrete pools can be made into nearly any shape, size or depth. They can have attached waterfalls, integrated slides, spas with waterfalls and more. Concrete pools can have a gradual slope, wading entry and underwater seat shelves. For all these reasons, concrete allows homeowners to have a truly custom pool, not a cookie cutter one-size-fits-all pool.
Concrete pools are often the most expensive pool type initially for homeowners, which is often why homeowners begin to look into fiberglass or vinyl liner pools. Fiberglass pools are shipped in their final form to the property of installation and backfilled into place. Because of this process, the shape, size, depth and design of a fiberglass pool is completely limited to the manufacturer of that pool. This leaves little room for homeowners to customize their new pool to meet their needs.
Vinyl liner pools, often the cheapest initial pool type is also limited in shape and size. Pools are installed onsite, but because of the liner, are often limited to rectangular shapes and limited depth options. Vinyl liner pools are also the most susceptible to damage and must have liner replacement every so often.
